Per Norman Mr Green & Co CEO commented on corporate performance
“Our industry is maturing and, in order to enable us to continue our rapid growth and maintain profitability, we have decided to focus on certain specific areas: products, cost control and branding. During the year, we launched a new technological platform and a number of new, world-class products: a new mobile platform, a responsive web design, an iOS app for iPhone and iPad and a new Android app. “
“In conjunction with the development of the new platform and products, we elected to temporarily curtail our marketing efforts during the second half of the year. Nonetheless, we expect that the new platform and products will, over time, result in continued high growth.”
