Press release from the issuing company
Gent, Belgium – October 24, 2006 – Artwork Systems Group N.V., a world leader in professional pre-press software, announces excellent sales results at the Graph & Converting Expo trade show in Chicago, Illinois, from October 15-18, 2006. Order intake amounted to 2.1 million USD during the four day show, which is a success beyond expectations and reflects an industry on the rebound in the USA.
Graph & Converting Expo is the largest and most important pre-press and printing trade show in the United States this year. During the show, visitors were able to get the first U.S. look at a huge breadth of Artwork Systems’ Certified Automation product offerings such as Odystar Packaging, Equinox and version 7 of Enfocus PitStop. After a slow summer period, the revenue generated from these sales will contribute to a good start of the first quarter of the new fiscal year that started on October 1, 2006.
Guido Van der Schueren, Chairman of the Board, comments: "Although our expectations were conservative, this was beyond anything that I expected. Customers are digging deeper to gain an understanding of the systems; they are pushing us hard to show the numbers. We expect this trend to continue."
