These board changes support our future focus by adding crucial new capability. We are delighted to have Mr Oliver Horn join the Board as Non-Executive Director. Mr. Horn has a track record for leading global businesses in related categories, brings strong commercial experience and has a track record for building strong premium consumer brands.

Following the recent new brand launch of our essential manufacturing and distribution business in the USA and Europe & UK, these appointments are a natural next step in the Company's renewal and reset process and have only been made possible by the very strong foundations the previous board and management have put in place. We are grateful to our former chairman Andrew Duff and Non-Executive Director Greg Ellery for their leadership contributions. Together with our CEO Stratos and Elixinol's management, they've created a more focused, streamlined and consumer-oriented business with sound operational fundamentals.

I am now looking forward to again playing a more active role in the Company that I founded and working together with Stratos and our new Non-Executive Board member Mr Oliver Horn in realising our vision of becoming a world leading CBD company."
