Keith Todd, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of KRM22 plc, commented:

“We made significant progress in 2019 launching the KRM22 Global Risk Platform with its range of market risk and regulatory services.  In the later part of 2019, we suspended our acquisition activity and focussed on organic growth in which we are continuing with this plan through 2020 and the ‘COVID’ crisis.  I am pleased to say that the business is operating very effectively working from home as a result of the automation and flexible working we established from day one.  We are confident of further progress with new and existing customers providing organic growth and remain confident of meeting management expectations.”
