Martin Ward, Chief Financial Officer of One Horizon, said, “Following our acquisitions of 123Wish and C-Rod (now, Love Media House) and given the financings we closed in the fourth quarter, our auditors consented to removing the “going concern” language from our audit following a significant increase in revenue, a working capital surplus of approximately $.89 million as of December 31, 2017, compared to working capital deficit of approximately $1.95 million as of December 31, 2016, expected near-term funds of approximately $.75 million, and anticipated additional revenue from ongoing operations, including Horizon Secure Messaging.”

The following financial forecasts, which include management’s projected results for 123Wish and Love Media House, reflect the expected revenue and operating profit before Group costs, minority interests and amortization, to be generated during the year ended December 31, 2018.
