|From today's Rivington Street results:
The Technology division reported a profit of £90,638 (2010: IFRS Restated £
34,022 profit). The core Blue Curve/Jovus software business performed well and
was a substantial profit contributor in its first year within the group. I am
pleased to say that it has continued to sign a number of major new customers
since the start of this year and we are confident about its prospects of
increasing its profit contribution this year. Unfortunately, the other
companies in this division, being recent acquisitions, reported losses, which
has resulted in the division showing only a small profit for the year|

Thanks for the new thread, Molly. Here's to better days ahead!"
Well Romeo, you said it........... a little over 4 years ago.
I take it in investments like Corero you take the long view? At the time you wrote the above comment, this company had a terrible record - in terms of enhancing shareholder value.
Now it is much, much worse - agree?|
|Good stuff, George!|

|damanko - agreed.
I sold out in Dec '09.
Fell on this today & thought "Hah, missed the recovery" but
a quick check on a 5 yr chart tells me there's been a consolidation
& Corero/Mondas hasn't changed.
|Good for us...

|Still have the the shares and time will tell if I made the right decision...|
|Who is Mondas, does he still post here?|
|I can only admire you guys, all the promises, all the changes in management. All the disappointments, all the massive losses - never mind the company - just the share price since Mondas promised so much.....

|Nice little come back. Maybe some good news on the way....|

Key appointments to US-based security division
Corero plc (AIM:CORO, 'Corero'), the international network security business and supplier of accounting and management information software solutions to the education and commercial markets, has appointed Aimee Rhodes as Chief Marketing Officer of its US-based security division (Top Layer).
Corero has also made key international sales hires and signed up new channel partners in the US, Europe and Asia.
Aimee Rhodes is a seasoned marketing executive in the enterprise technology sector. Most recently, she was vice president of marketing at Xceedium, a network access control provider, where she was responsible for all marketing and lead generation activity. Prior to that, Aimee was VP of marketing at firewall management company AlgoSec, and VP of corporate communications at remote access SSL VPN vendor Whale Communications, which was acquired by Microsoft. Aimee will play a key role in Top Layer's drive to expand market share by exploiting new sales channels.
Corero has also established sales teams in Taiwan and France hiring experienced network security sales managers and systems engineers. In addition, the company has appointed three sales managers in the US and a North America Channels Manager to expand the US channel partner base. Since the Top Layer acquisition which closed on 2 March, 2011, 12 new channel partners have been appointed in North America, Europe and Asia.
Jens Montanana, Chairman of Corero, said:
"Aimee has a proven track record and brings hands-on experience as well as strategic marketing skills to Top Layer. The appointment of Aimee and the additional planned investment in marketing will further raise the profile of Top Layer and equip the sales team to increase sales and revenue.
"Our sales team expansion in Europe and Asia and the new talent we have recruited in the US are key elements in our strategy to drive revenue growth by boosting channel sales."
Corero has two divisions: Corero Security Systems, which includes Top Layer, and Corero Business Systems, which serves the education and commercial sectors.|

|This Company has always had promise. I'm holding my shares and hoping. Corero has always managed to spin a decent story, but never (so far) produced results. I can't see how the share price will move until management PROVES themselves.|
|So we are all still here. Have not sold a single share. No choice or thinking that things could get a whole lot better.|
