As we anticipated, the new HOMI ® minibars that have been installed are earning increased revenues and profit, and we have been successful in continuing the reduction of our G&A expenses.

"We continue to invest in sales and marketing, and we regularly sign new contracts in our main territories of operation: the USA, Europe and Israel. During the second quarter of 2011, we intend to perform additional installations of the new HOMI ® minibars, along with our latest development, the 'EDS' - a computerized Electronic Dry Section for dry goods (snacks) and large bottles of Mineral Water (non-refrigerated)."
