Q: Shopify's decision to sell it's distribution business has been well-received. However, the reasons for this divestiture -- complexity and distraction, as well as cost were entirely foreseeable before this initiative started. And the reasons for getting into distribution are not being mentioned in corporate explanations of the change. Have they just gone away? Does this change point to governance issues, such as the unusual independence of the CEO due to the share structure?

Q: Hello, Thank you and Kudos to 5i team for your unfaltering view on Shopify, and even bumping up the weight in the Balanced portfolio recently. Your unbiased and consistent opinion has been a huge support to us for maintaining a long term view on this company, while there has been so much pessimism and negativity in the market. We are very happy with market rewarding the stock last week and I am sure, there is a lot more to come over next several years.

Thank you!
