Not surprisingly with our consistent quarter-to-quarter improvements, our year-to-date performance in 2011 has also met or exceeded our expectations. I.D. Systems revenue for the first nine months of 2011 was $27.5 million, a 47% increase compared to the same period a year ago. At the same time, our SG&A and R&D expenses decreased 9% compared to the same year ago period.
We continue to believe that we can drive our revenue up to approximately 50% with the overhead structure we currently have in place. Our focus on Q4 2011 and beyond remains the same. We continue to target new customers and applications, as well as organic opportunities for topline revenue growth, we strive to increase predictable recurring revenue as a percentage of total revenue, we are committed to maintaining discipline on costs and our ultimate goal remains to further improve our net results and increase shareholder value.
