    It seems your own excellent research revealing that Hermans stepped down from being an A-Eon director in December 2010 has finally solved that 2010 vs. 2011 mystery:

    So I guess it went something like this:

    04/2009: A-Eon CVBA founded in Belgium by Hermans, T. Dickinson and Moorley as shareholders as well as directors
    12/2010: Hermans quits his A-Eon CVBA director position (and relinquishes his shares), AmigaKit/Leaman gets involved as consultant or similar
    10/2011: A-Eon CVBA starts omitting the mention of its legal form in press releases
    04/2012: A-Eon Ltd. founded in UK by Leaman, T. Dickinson and C. Dickinson as shareholders with Leaman acting as sole director
    04/2013: A-Eon CVBA dissolved (T. Dickinson and Moorley are mentioned in this paper)

    Any objections, remarks, additions?
