After careful thought and consideration, I have decided to delist Delicious Demar Enterprises (DDE) from the WSE.DDE's time on WSE has been tremendous - the exchange has allowed the business to grow rapidly over the last year, and as you all know, we have met with some success and revenues and profits have for the most part been on a steady increase over that time.
With the launch of WSE 4.0 around the corner, WSE is entering a new phase of growth by rapidly expanding the user base, and I think the opportunities for companies on the exchange are excellent. I think that they will be able to leverage the new pool of fictional currency that will be available, and take their companies to the next level.
Over the last year, my commitments in real life have grown, and as I have mentioned in the past, DDE has entered a holding pattern - the business is at a manageable size now - just! I have decided that I do not want to expand DDE any more, because I simply can't afford the time to give expansion the attention it would need to succeed. At some point in the future, I will be planning a slow and ordered withdrawal from the land business. It has been a great run, but eventually it will be time to move on to something new in Second Life. Because of this, and in light of recent events surrounding DDE, in good conscience, I cannot stay on the WSE any longer.
I encourage all shareholders to join the Delicious Demar Enterprises group - I will be calling shareholder meetings through this group in the coming days/weeks to decide how to manage shareholder interests privately, and will seek your advice on how to proceed to ensure that your interests and investment are protected. I will be contacting major shareholders directly as well. You can trust me to treat you all fairly, and keep the same high ethical standards that have always been the hallmark of DDE.
Please feel free to leave questions or comments here. Thank you all for everything. Best of luck to all of the companies on the WSE. See you in the metaverse!
