LATEST PRESS RELEASES
Ladies & Gentlemen of the Press,
For the avoidance of doubt Influence Options has never worked for or with Cambridge Analytica in any capacity whatsoever.
Influence Options has never worked on any election or referendum campaign, either here in the UK or indeed in any other nation and has no interest in ever doing so. Any suggestion to the contrary is completely and utterly inaccurate.
We have previously worked, as contractors, for the defence division of SCL, as indeed we have with many other organisations. The defence division works on defence related projects only.
We are utterly appalled at the actions of senior Cambridge Analytica staff revealed by Channel 4 news and the subsequent evidence provided by Christopher Wylie to the Commons' Select Committee. These are not our values and standards and we condemn them unreservedly. We have now withdrawn from all work with SCL.
