"A year ago, I wrote that there remained an incredible amount to be done in the gaming industry and that what is great about Cherry is that its five diversified business areas span the entire gaming industry and that Cherry AB owns and manages highly interesting companies.

"We have already benefited from this strength and progressed some distance in our plans."

"A year later, I have the same feeling; we have much ahead of us and Cherry is the player that can most naturally benefit from all of the opportunities available.

"We will continue to focus on companies run by extremely strong and ambitious individuals with a mix of entrepreneurs and specialists with a strong spirit of innovation.

"Creativity and hard work drive the products forward, also allowing Cherry's business areas to grow faster than their respective markets."

Wow, the growth in numbers is just enormous and I guess that's a proof for the great work by the Cherry Group, think they've got some really keen acquisitions this past year which obviously developed their business to a whole new level.
