“As you know, DBR Media has been experiencing very hard times. We have left no stone unturned in trying to keep everything afloat ….
“Unfortunately, we have no choice at this point but to shut down operations. We are well aware of the many sacrifices everyone has made in addition to our own personal sacrifices. There are no sufficient words to say how grateful and honored we are that you are part of DBRâ??s family, and that is what we consider you.
“Please know that every effort is going to be made to compensate you. Money is still owed to us from clients. We are hoping to recover that.
“It has been a journey of eight years. Despite the hardships, itâ??s been a pleasure to work with you. Your talent and dedication are whatâ??s made most of this possible to begin with.”
