We’ve opted to list on the Australian Stock Exchange via a reverse takeover of Dromana Estate Limited (DMY) (Dromana). This will enable us to raise capital to continue to invest in enhancing our unique Cloud System and expand our sales and marketing presence to complement our multiple data centres across Australia.
Completion of the acquisition will result in a change of company name to CloudCentral Limited and the appointment of two new directors, founder of CloudCentral, Kristoffer Sheather as Managing Director.
Commenting on the listing, Founder of CloudCentral, Kristoffer Sheather said: “With this listing and access to additional funding CloudCentral is well placed to capitalise on the worldwide cloud computing sector that is growing at 36 percent compounded annual growth rate.

New initiatives include additional investment and commitment to security accreditations, additional points of presence, new product development and operations enhancements,” he concluded.
