I am totally focused on repairing the short-term damage to what is fundamentally a robust business
I am well aware that Sanctuary has disappointed the market significantly this year and, with hindsight, it is clear we grew too fast.
The board is determined to steer the company, which has an extremely strong roster of artists and a strong 30-year track record, back to a profitable trading position and back to sustainable long term growth.
I am confident that we have a high quality business and, with a much-reduced cost base, I believe we are well placed to rapidly return to profitability going forward.
I am pleased with the rapid progress we have made in addressing the key issues and costs in our business and we will continue to restructure the group over the next few weeks and months
That way we'll be on a level playing field and remedy the harm to the party has put on us so far.

I don't think you need a record deal to write songs. You don't need any other reason than you want to do it. It's a far cry from why some people do music today. They make it to order, which is pretty horrible.
If you were looking at where you would like your career to go, then you would have to cherry pick The Stones. People love coming to see them. They are it, they are the most definitive rock n roll band ever.
It was mind-blowing. It was a small place with 2,000 standing-up tickets. It's great to have your band back and working and playing again, people have been so generous.
Melodic songs that people can relate to has always been our thing.
Some of those songs, you really have to bite them. You challenge yourself, you challenge the audience, you do something different. People weren't expecting it.
