As the largest shareholder group of the Company, our management team wholeheartedly believes in an open dialogue with its shareholders and the importance of its alignment in enhancing shareholder value. We couldn't be more excited in the current position of all of our entities and the opportunities we have in front of us to positively unlock value in the public markets for our shareholders and stakeholders.
