Commenting on the results Keith Todd, Executive Chairman of FFastFill said:

"I am pleased to announce these results which show a robust performance from FFastFill in spite of what has been a very difficult set of market conditions. We continue to navigate these challenges, moving now from a phase of 'development' into a period more focusesed on exploiting our extensive product suite and resources to further strengthen our sales pipeline and profitability."

"Our business has never been as strong competitively as it is today. As I said at the time of our interim results in November, the pace of growth in our sector and our markets remains difficult to predict in the short term as the consequences of the financial crisis unwind. However, in spite of this recent market turbulence, the Board remains confident that the medium and long term fundamentals of our target markets are strong and that our company is well placed to continue to grow its market share."
