Identification of suitable merger and acquisition targets in order to ensure that zamano benefits from the continuing consolidation of the market;
Development of our technology platform to support new technologies and services; and
Identification of appropriate new geographic markets and controlled entry into those markets.
The Group made substantial progress in executing its strategy during 2007, resulting in a strong financial performance with revenues doubling and EBITDA increasing by 44%.
During the year, the Group considerably strengthened its management team and has put the right resources in place to extend its strong growth story into 2008 and beyond.
I am very satisfied with recent progress in developing our team, our strategy and technology, and am confident that the 6 years of consecutively high growth to 2007 will continue in 2008 and beyond.”
