Comments of Management

Commenting on the results, Shaike Orbach, President and CEO, said, “We have reported solid year-over-year growth for both the quarter and the first half of 2014, however softer demand in Q2 resulted in a 6% sequential revenue decline compared with the first quarter of 2014. While these challenges may remain with us for the short term, we continue to believe in the long-term power of our growth engines: especially our more than 100 existing customers, many of whom are industry leaders, our proven portfolio of mission-critical products, and our impressive roadmap of innovative new product lines that give us entry into high-potential new opportunities. As such, we continue implementing our proven strategy for building our business and pursuing our goals.”
