MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN

A Message from the Chairman

Welcome to the next issue of Q. It would not be wrong to state that things have changed dramatically since our last Update. The unprecedented global health and economic concerns that were just emerging have had several months now to take hold and create significant impact on the way businesses are operated. Like all, Wesley Clover has shared in these experiences and tough times. I am pleased to report, however, that many of the portfolio companies have found innovative ways not only to survive but to continue and even accelerate their growth. Hard work, great technology, strong partnerships, the ability to seize emerging markets — these things and more have all been the enablers, as you will read in this issue of Q.
