This process has taken a little longer than anticipated, Brave Bison conceded, meaning it will take “somewhat longer” to achieve profitability.

Even so, losses will narrow substantially from the £1.8mln deficit posted in 2016 to around £900,000 for the year just closing (at the EBITDA level).

The 2017 figure that takes into account a £400,000 hit from adverse currency movements, but excludes exceptional items.

More importantly, with around £4.1mln in cash, Brave Bison is funded to reach profitability.
