"Over the past few months, we have been re-defining our long-term strategy and vision to take our business to the next level.  Our recent enhancements to the management team reflect the initial steps that we have already taken. Our updated vision focuses on the evolution of Commtouch from a technology company, providing class leading technologies, into a solutions provider of white label cloud-driven 'security as a service' offerings. This evolution, from technologies towards solutions for our valued OEM and service provider customers, is built upon continuing to grow our core business while making material investments in the coming year that are aimed at developing and deploying complementary value added solutions to set the stage for accelerated long-term growth. We believe the combination of continued revenue expansion, ongoing customer acquisition, strong cash flow generation, and our newly evolved vision for growth puts us in a very strong position," concluded Mr. Yanai.
