    Seems like the most important disclosure in the release is the appointment of a new CFO with significant public gold company experience; that additional financial sophistication is what will be needed as these guys transition from an exploration and development company to an operating company

    new CFO should help a lot, seems to have the operating company experience that a company in transition like Banro needs!
