Letter to the Shareholders

Dear Shareholders,

I feel honored with the opportunity to address our Shareholders in the first annual report of now a public limited Avanceon that found its very humble beginning 24 years ago. Going public in November 2014 marked a great milestone in our Company’s history, and our goal is to continue achieving significant milestones to increase value for our shareholders. I still hear the Karachi Stock Exchange gong ringing in my ears from the first day of trading, a reminder of the promises we made as part of Highway 50 and our commitments to investors. Hence, a mental note is made to continue upholding Avanceon’s values.
