Michael Schwartz, Spindle Interim CEO commented, "It's now been approximately two months since I took over as CEO of the Company. While it's admittedly still early, and we clearly have a great deal of work ahead of us, I felt it important that I took this opportunity to communicate with our shareholders. Specifically, I want to let you know that Spindle has quickly established an extremely competent and dedicated team all working in unison. We have a strong and solid foundation, common goals, and a highly focused and executable plan. As a part of our future growth strategy you should expect us to continue to add complementary talent. Importantly, part of this plan includes a fundamental understanding of the importance of promoting transparency with our shareholders and communicating progress when appropriate."
Schwartz continued, "Having successfully built and led large team-centric organizations during my 27 year career in the payments industry, I believe the key to any company's success is its people. Despite being a small company, I believe we have a uniquely strong depth of talent. Together, we are working tirelessly towards the common goals of revenue delivery, strategic alignment, and value creation. Finally, I want to thank all of our employees for their continued commitment. I'm optimistic about our future and look forward to continuing to work with you to expand upon our recent progress and accomplishments."
Frank Knuettel II, Spindle Chairman of the Board added, "I want to thank Mike and newly named CFO John Hunnicutt for their consummate professionalism and continuing positive efforts on behalf of the Company and its shareholders. I'd like to also thank recently named board member Brian Bates for the deep industry knowledge and value he has brought to the Board."
"For Spindle to have been successful at attracting such world class talent over just the last 90 days, is clearly encouraging. With this, one of my primary goals remains to further surround the management team with additional highly qualified and accomplished Board members whose experience, relationships, and talent may be leveraged. We are currently in the process of further aligning the Board to include additional complementary and like-minded talent, some of which we expect to announce in the near future."
