Plural or singular?

Hi, everyone :slight_smile:

I’ve recently had to put together a press-release for a certain company. I needed to say the following:

“[Company Name] [color=red]is/are delighted to be the first provider in … to deliver … courses”.

What would you have used: ‘is’ or ‘are’? The people I’ve asked seemed to have divided on this. I personally feel that it should be ‘are’, but those “pro-is” ones say that this is just one company we are talking about, so it is singular.

Would appreciate your thoughts :slight_smile:

Thanks.

The correct answer is “is.”
