We are involved in a larger number of projects that have progressed to their commercial implementation stage, resulting in the increase in recurring and transaction fee revenues. We have a larger number of opportunities that are in pilot stages with a clear path to rollouts, which will mainly impact 2012 and 2013 revenues, ultimately increasing our long term visibility and profitability. In addition, we have created new alliances with channel partners in the vertical markets that we focus on, especially in the petroleum and parking markets, which will help us increase revenues from these sectors. The advancements increase our confidence level in meeting the previously provided guidance for the year of $55-$60 million in revenues."
