WISeKey is fundamentally a different company than at its origins and now plays an essential role in the emerging market of securing social mobility. While presenting WISeKey's major businesses areas Moreira called WISeID Secure Mobility "our next huge business", because people are concerned about security. WISeKey takes the security of social profiles and personal data seriously, offering powerful tools to protect its customers, with an impeccable reputation that continues to make WISeKey a leading brand in this ecosystem and the reason the World Economic Forum recognized WISeKey as one of the 25 top Global Growth Companies in 2011.
Mr. Moreira presided over the meeting of stockholders, outlining WISeKey's overall vision of the Trusted Internet and taking questions from those in attendance. Following the Chairman's presentation, Mr. Moreira was joined by COO Dourgam Kummer, CFO Peter Ward, and Senior Vice President of Finance Philippe Collot to detail other points on the agenda. The formal business of the meeting was uneventful with uncontested approval of the three company-sponsored proposals. It demonstrates how WISeKey has continued to diversify its security products and services with the activation of new business units. Importantly it demonstrates that, once the global economy recovers, WISeKey is well positioned to become a major player on the "Social Ecosystem."
The meeting concluded with closing remarks from the Chairman, "I hope to continue working with all of you in 2012 and I trust that you share our excitement about the future of an enterprise whose unique past is propelling us into an enormously promising future."
