Michael Infante, CEO of One Media iP, commented: “Based on the Group’s strong performance to date and the continued growth in music streaming, the Board is confident in the outlook for the business as we remain focused on exploring further acquisition opportunities.
“We are also encouraged to observe that the sector continues to attract significant investment from outside of the industry, which we believe will help to build further interest in our business and strategy. We look forward to keeping the market updated as we continue to deliver on our growth strategy.”
