In honour of his love for aviation, we dedicate the completion of our mission to him.”

    Since learning of the Tourillon’s family challenge with Sebastien’s cystic fibrosis, we — the team at InvestorIntel have been inspired as we have watched Bernard lead with courage and strength in the ongoing face of adversity. Building ongoing value for the shareholders of HPQ Silicon, we have often wished we could do more to support Bernard and team as we watched them prove that they could maintain their best while being dealt a hand by life that few could bear. Based on what I know of Sebastien, he was the inspiration for this courage and lead by example. On behalf of the team at InvestorIntel, we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the Tourillon family and the HPQ Silicon team.
