“At the beginning of the year, we set out to move a mountain with just a strong plan…I believe we moved several mountains by believing in and daily execution of that plan.

“The company is positioned well with a strong balance sheet, key and unique partnerships and most importantly, the winning team.
“We have a head start on 2020 with about three times the revenue we had this time last year and we’re focused on keeping that momentum growing.”
