Over the past two years just-auto.com has developed into one of the leading online information sources for the automotive industry, serving over 10,000 professionals each day. Recently the parent company, just-sites.com failed to secure second round funding. Despite cut-backs to reduce overheads and attempts to seek external finance, just-sites.com was put into creditors' voluntary liquidation on 30th November 2001.

However, I am pleased to announce that, prior to liquidation, an external investor, Aroq Group Limited, purchased the assets of just-sites.com - ensuring the stability and future operation of the just-auto.com web site, news and research. The management and key staff of just-sites.com have been retained by the new business which has a sound financial base requiring no further outside funding.

All customers of just-sites-branded reports, co-branded reports and subscribers to the site can rest assured that we will continue to honour our obligations to you. I am confident that we now have in place a viable business proposition for just-auto.com to continue to develop and grow.

Thank you for your custom and support.
