"We achieved a number of important milestones during 2012 that will contribute to improving profitability. After a complete transition of all customers to our short-haul solution and the completion of our program to reduce product cost of the long-haul product, we are poised to achieve further improvement in gross margin. We also increased our market share, becoming the clear #1 in the long haul business and added several new Tier 1 customers while continuing to penetrate others. We recently introduced a new premium solution, the FibeAir IP-20C that could begin to contribute to revenues toward the end of the year, and the expense reduction initiatives implemented during Q4 positions us to achieve significant operating leverage once top line growth resumes," concluded Mr. Palti.
