19 July 2002 (A0206) -- Actinic Software, the best-selling ecommerce tools developer, is pleased to announce the completion of its Management Buyout (MBO) -- Actinic is again a private company. The MBO was agreed at a meeting of shareholders on 12 July.

Chris Barling, chief operating officer at Actinic explains, "Although the stock-market-listed parent company, Actinic plc, is being wound up, Actinic Software Ltd. is well capitalised, and will continue operations unaffected. Without the distraction of city pressures, we are now able to focus 100% on moving the Actinic product family forward, and providing excellent customer service."

As part of this renewed focus, Actinic is moving its support operation to its Weybridge, Surrey head office. Business development director, Phil Rothwell will be taking responsibility for all customer-facing operations and says, "We are committed to providing technical support that is second to none, and these changes are part of the process."

Chris Barling adds, "Our market-leading position gives us a great platform from which to build, and we look forward to continuing to deliver world-class ecommerce solutions for small and medium businesses."
