"In a difficult economic environment, the company has worked very hard to maintain itself at an operational level similar to that in 2001 and has successfully maintained profitability." Dr. Ramon Harel, CEO of Scanvec Amiable said in a statement.
For the fourth quarter, our outlook is for modest growth. Positive events that occurred in the third quarter, such as the release of our FlexiFAMILY 7 in various languages and key updates that were developed to the core product line to drive the latest and most popular devices in the industry, should contribute nicely for a steady revenue stream. The mid-October release of PhotoPRINT 3 will add to our revenue stream in the fourth quarter and into well into 2003.
Most importantly, we expect to deliver positive overall growth for 2002, and continue our positive momentum into 2003 and beyond. The company is leveraging existing strategic partnerships and developing new strategic partnerships better than ever, to deliver more robust solutions, increase exposure and to maximize operating expenses." added Dr. Harel.
