Mr. Daniel Cohen, HOMI’s President, stated: "In the third quarter of 2011, our revenues increased as a result of new and additional installations. This quarter additional expenses associated with the HOMI 232, open display minibars which we purchased from a third party, continued affecting our gross profit and gross profit margin. In the third quarter of 2011, we successfully installed our HOMI 330 minibar in two new hotels and, to date, we have been pleased with its performance. The HOMI 330 is proving to be a very reliable and promising product. Also very promising is our external dry section with which we have equipped more than 1200 rooms, including rooms in the Hilton Olympia and the Sheraton Salobre."
