These reflected improved business conditions as well as the operational efficiency measures that we adopted at the end of last year. Solid consumer demand for sophisticated electronic devices continues to give us grounds for a certain amount of cautious optimism. In the FPD industry we are seeing increased activity as our customers solidify their future investment plans, particularly in China. We believe that in all areas our product development roadmap is successfully addressing the increasingly demanding requirements of our customers, by consistently providing them with innovative and state-of-the-art solutions. At the same time, we are continuing to pursue additional opportunities within the electronic component manufacturing and other adjacent industries.”
