"Singers did a fantastic job in October with our Placing to buy the magazine and digital media company TI Media. They spoke to shareholders to help drum up excitement and the demand to buy shares. We felt like we were in good hands throughout the process, and the placing turned out to be a huge success as we ended up with five times the orders we needed, which meant we were able to sell the equity at a great price."
