"We are making progress in shifting our business from one primarily dependent on the EV Project to a company with a diversified product and services offering serving consumers, industrial and government clients," Mr. Brar continued. "We believe that each of our three complementary product and service offerings present compelling growth opportunities and we have set aggressive internal sales targets. Our efforts to expand our national account program have been encouraging, as the recent agreements with Kroger and Texas Instruments demonstrate our early traction and the viability of our charging stations and network. We are actively working to expand our Blink network across the country through our indirect sales channels and dealer network. In addition, the Minit-Charger 12 is our first step to rejuvenate our presence in the industrial sector, and we are preparing to begin installations in the third quarter."
ECOtality President and CEO Ravi Brar and CFO Susie Herrmann will host the presentation, followed by a question and answer period.
