2013 has once again proved the value of corporate partnering for businesses seeking to enter new markets and prepared to take a long term approach.
We are particularly pleased that one of our long-standing European clients, who is the market leader within their particular sector of the media service industry, has continued to benefit from our partnering services. We worked closely with them in helping identify suitable partners to enable them to enter both the US and the Indian/Persian Gulf markets.
Another of our clients, who is based in the South of France and whose revenues are driven by selling to a global market over the Internet, has had excellent experience with a new local partnership. This deal, which we assisted them in negotiating at the end of last year, means that our client can focus its efforts on online marketing whilst the new partner takes care of fulfillment.
We have noticed an increased interest in our post-conflict management, monitoring and evaluation expertise, where a new contract is being implemented in the new year.
