Walbrook PR announced its appointment as Financial PR advisor to Mobile Tornado Group plc, the Instant Communications services provider for mobile devices.
Mobile Tornado Group PLC (AIM: MBT) specialises in the provision of Instant Communications services for mobile devices, with a focus on enterprise workforce management.

In September, Mobile Tornado raised £4.0m to continue investment in its platform and further market penetration, as well as provide additional working capital to support existing contracts. The Board also took the opportunity to restructure the Company's balance sheet, allowing the Company better to pursue its growth opportunities with a strengthened balance sheet, removing capital constraints and helping it in its contract negotiations with potential customers.
