I would like to take a moment at the end of the year to thank our customers, colleagues and suppliers for your loyalty and support over the past twelve months. I recognise we wouldn’t be where we are without the contributions made by each of you, and I am very appreciative of this … thank you. 2021 has been a year of development, expansion, and growth for XTND. We have restructured operations, increased our brand profile, continued to deliver forensic investigations across South Africa and neighbouring countries, and developed new state of the art fraud risk mitigation solutions. We know that you have worked hard within your own business environment and that fraud mitigation is included in your strategy, as such it is important for us to support you in order to keep what is yours.

From starting out as a company investigating fraud and corruption within the insurance and assurance markets, XTND today has developed innovative artificial intelligence and machine learning fraud solutions that will support any enterprise serious about combatting fraud and corruption. As new markets emerge, so will we continue to develop solutions to meet our customer needs.

We are proud to have our products as embedded solutions into the EOH strategy to correct wrong-doings of the past and to stand head and shoulders above other corporates who have faced the same challenges. The unique story of repairing a shattered company, is a scar we embrace and is testament to the commitment from the top, to save jobs and of a proudly South African technology firm’s journey of repair and recover.

For certain, we know exciting and challenging times await XTND in 2022, but more than ever, we are confident with the team, culture, and enthusiasm we have – XTND has never been better placed to meet these times.

Amidst all these changes, our primary focus will be to build on the foundations of the business. We will continue to ensure provision of quality solutions, improved service, and innovation in every market sector we operate, heralding a new era which we are confident will have a positive impact on the business, as well as the industries we support.

I would like to sincerely thank all of you who have participated and engaged with us, supported us, and inspired us. You have helped us achieve more than we thought possible and assisted us in making an impact where it matters most.

This is exactly what inspires us to move forward and face 2022 with renewed optimism and hope. Allow me the opportunity to wish all of you the very best for the festive season, and a happier and healthier New Year.

Warm regards
Servaas du Plessis and management team
