TLDH has 16 gTLD applications unopposed, and another 5 unopposed client applications.
Executive Chairman Designate, Fred Krueger, commented:
The Boardcontinues to be excited about the prospects for the development of the Group. The Company's strategy now focuses on developing the processes and infrastructure to support the portfolio of gTLD applications in its own name and for its clients in anticipation of deriving revenue from the registration of domain names.
We look forward to the first of our new gTLDs going live in 2013. With clients from Brazil, New Zealand, Canada, the UK and the USA, and a varied portfolio of gTLDs, we are the third largest applicant of generic gTLDs behind Donuts Inc. and Google Inc.
