“We are extremely pleased to report these results for fiscal 2012,” stated Philip S. Sassower, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We have believed for some time that we build the best and most rugged tablets available today. We believe our fiscal 2012 results demonstrate that our customers, both old and new, recognize this as well. The tremendous acceptance in the marketplace today of the tablet as a form factor, much like what was experienced by laptop computers when they first emerged, should provide a ready market for our family of rugged tablet computers.”
