These are difficult moments for us; however, I would really like to thank you for all your support. We are very grateful for all your encouraging messages and that you support us in these difficult times.
Selling our team to Dorilton Capital was one of our toughest decisions. I am sure that they will take our legacy further and will do their best and make the best economic efforts for the purpose of taking Williams back to the first position of the grid, where it actually belongs. Although we are leaving we would like to ask you to support Williams in accomplishing their purposes we could not ensure!’
