I hope you all had a great weekend and if you celebrate with us Irish, you enjoyed some St Patricks Day celebrations :shamrock: This weeks report is a little late coming to you, I promise its not because of a pub-related hangover…entirely, but you will get to enjoy two reports this week instead, so you must have the luck of the Irish :wink: Read on for important information about our release and upcoming events.
