He continued: "Looking ahead for 2013, we have a meaningful pipeline of new product launches and upgrades of existing ones; we have formulated strategies to enter new markets and expand our presence in certain existing markets; and we are now exploring new business partnerships, and other M&A activities that could accelerate our growth and profitability.

"For 2013, excluding any acquisitions, we expect further improvement of our top and bottom line as compared to 2012. We look forward to reporting our progress in the months to come."
