MIPIM got us in front of the right people, at the right time and as a result, we managed to secure two very serious offers of intent to provide finance for our development. Both offers are now being progressed further and we expect to make an announcement confirming our funding partner before the end of the year."

- Nigel Hartley, Chief Operating Officer
