It is CBT's objective to utilize this cash, its significant residual tax losses and its US public listing to seek out a new business opportunity. The Company believes that it is in an attractive position to do so given the collective business experience and networks of the new management group as well as Directors. CBT is currently evaluating a number of attractive opportunities and believes that it can consummate a transaction in the not to distant future.
