Much more important to note is that we have returned to profitability GAAP based, improving our bottom line significantly vs. 2011 despite basically maintaining our level of revenues year over year. Now we are launching a new driver behavior solution which, together with additional product releases planned later this year, should help us maintain our position in the market and help us face the economic situation worldwide. We are continuing in our efforts to improve results especially in view of our business in Latin America."
