Spectrum Technologies navigated successfully through the difficulties of the Coronavirus pandemic, and the business has recovered well during the last 12 months. The outlook for the current financial year is positive; one year on from the start of the Ukraine-Russia war we have seen no negative consequences for our business. While there are significant operational challenges remaining in the ramp back up from covid, as for most businesses, the Board believes that Spectrum remains well positioned for the future. In that context, the Board considers that it is important to maintain progress in introducing new leadership at the top of the Company to deliver on its long term plans.
