CALGARY, Alberta, February 8, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SMART Technologies Inc. (Nasdaq:SMT) (TSX:SMA), a leading provider of collaboration solutions, today announced financial results for its third quarter ended December 31, 2010.

"We are pleased with our third-quarter results, as we continue to demonstrate the value of our full suite of collaboration solutions," stated Nancy Knowlton, President and CEO of SMART. "Our solid top-line growth, particularly in North America, was driven by increasing demand for attachment products, which grew 54% year-over-year. In addition, innovation remains a cornerstone of our strategy as we had several important product launches during the quarter, which we expect to strengthen our competitive position and enable us to drive demand in new sectors and geographies. During the quarter, we also focused on expanding our sales infrastructure, channel relationships, and research and development teams in order to support our growth and pursue additional revenue opportunities."

Knowlton continued, "We are pleased with our continued solid execution in a challenging market environment. Despite near-term headwinds in education spending, our portfolio of technology solutions and strong market leadership position in interactive whiteboards leaves us well positioned to execute our long-term growth strategy and leverage our full offering across multiple markets. In addition to focusing on our core interactive whiteboard segment, we remain committed to growing the overall business through expanding sales of our attachment products, further penetrating higher growth geographies and introducing our collaboration solutions to businesses worldwide."
