The declining revenues are mainly as a result of currency exchange rates and weakness in sales of the technology sector due to global economy conditions. We have concentrated on improving our operations in order to face prevailing market conditions and to accommodate our expense level. We expect the weak global economy to continue to affect us, but expect that our efforts in launching new products and our additional investment in Latin America together with continued improvement of our operating costs will enable us to achieve our long term goals."
