“The Group has continued to make positive progress on delivering on the strategic objectives that it set in early 2019 and has made significant advances in its drive to commercialise its portfolio.  R&D has made some excellent progress in inks and graphene oxide and the global sales team is beginning to reap the commercial rewards of our One Team approach.  We have further streamlined our reporting structures and enhanced our operational and technical capacity.  Whilst Covid-19 has provided a testing backdrop to these changes and has impacted revenue in the latter part of the year it has by no means defined or diminished the Group’s development in the year”
