These excellent results are the outcome of a lengthy, calculated process, of reorganization and strategy shift that we have been implementing in the past two years. We are focusing on projects that provide high gross margin, we implemented a cost cutting program, mainly in R&D and G&A, we increased our marketing and sales efforts, and we made a strategic decision to exit the non profitable card manufacturing business through the sale of MCT assets."
