“We’re proud to deliver such robust results to shareholders. The Company’s maiden net profit represents just the beginning of the delivery on our vision for the Company. We have an extremely dedicated team led by highly experienced, competent and committed management and we look forward to building on these results into FY22, as the Company begins to deploy its unique, and exclusive shared solar product to strata communities throughout Queensland and New South Wales.”

These results are preliminary and subject to review by the Company’s auditors. The Board of Directors will provide shareholders with the FY21 Audited Annual Report in August 2021. Authorised by the Board.
