Andrea Stecconi, Chief Executive Officer of Defenx plc, commented: “2015 has been a year of good progress for Defenx and we have continued to grow the business financially and are delighted to report that we finished the year slightly ahead of market expectations. We successfully completed our IPO on AIM in December where we raised GBP2.1 million to invest in our business.
We have had a strong start to 2016, launching Windows Phone 10 and Defenx Cloud Backup products. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our staff and shareholders whose hard work and support have facilitated the growth seen in 2015, which we hope to continue.”
