THE FINAL RESULT:  "Veni, vidi, vici!"

"I Came, I Saw, I Conquered". Way back in history, Julius Caesar's sent those famous words in a message back to the Roman Senate in recognition of an overwhelming victory. And so it was for "Green MT" who extended their lead at the top of the table in the final round to well over 200 points to deservedly become the University of Portsmouth Enginuity 2018 Champions with an impressive finishing score of 2,647 pts, and their success owed much to them demonstrating one of the guiding principles in running a successful business, consistency, as they has led for all but one period.

Behind the Champions it was "Chimera", who held firmly onto the Runners Up spot, and in the end by some margin from "HOMA Management", who finished 3rd, but only just as those "Y-Nots" put in tremendous surge in the final round with 7% growth, the best published, that saw them climb 2 places to 4th, and only 1 mere point adrift of 'HOMA'.

The top 8 teams all surpassed the 2,000 points threshold, a tremendous achievement, and in the final analysis every team finished with stronger, more sustainable companies than when they took over in period 5, a testament to the skill and application shown by the management teams in what was a roller coaster of a journey through 2 simulated years of management.
