"Overall, it was a successful year for TransAct," said Bart C. Shuldman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TransAct Technologies. "We finalized a major transition where we commenced manufacturing of higher value products for our new oil and gas exploration market, as well as the new Ithaca 9700 for food safety for restaurants and other food service venues around the world. These products, along with our EPICENTRAL® Print System, present a significant revenue opportunity for TransAct by combining software and hardware to provide benefits to our customers while enabling us to market higher margin technology. In addition, we returned almost $6.5 million to shareholders through repurchases of our shares and our new quarterly dividend program, highlighting our strong cash flow generation. We look forward to 2013 where we will continue to focus our efforts on our newly launched products, as well as our EPICENTRAL® Print System software."
