Commenting on the results, David Massie Wey Education PLC (Executive Chairman) said: “This was an exciting period in the Company’s development. Last November’s oversubscribed £5m placing gave the Company the financial resources to implement its medium-term strategy. The results of that process are already beginning to bear fruit. The completion of the Academy 21 acquisition accelerates the Company’s growth in the B2B market and we are very pleased with its development so far. The announcements regarding the joint ventures in China and Nigeria is very significant for the group’s growth as they have the potential to be transformational. Naturally, there is some cost involved in developing these initiatives, but the Company has the necessary financial resources for such, and the Board considers the potential is so great, that the price is one worth paying.”
