We were able to post significant increases in both operating income and net income for the Company over 2007. In mid-2008, we implemented a new strategy extending our distribution network to cover numerous new market segments. We also decided to focus more on full custom power solutions and are pleased to report that this initiative is beginning to pay off, as we have recently won several important development contracts. Simultaneously, we launched a promotional effort for our standard and modified standard high density, high flexibility products, which, along with several cost reduction initiatives, resulted in improved gross margins in 2008."
