The beginning of 2011 showed that the majority of microwave vendors are shifting towards a full outdoor solution to meet the growing demand for total network cost reduction. In this situation, the Company benefits as the one of the pioneers, due to the accumulated know-how and vast experience with full outdoor radio technology. General economic recovery as well as consolidation of telecommunication equipment vendors are providing new opportunities for SAF Tehnika as independent and stable market player, shown by increasing growth of sales this year. To allocate the required resources to maintaining successful development, SAF will move from the regional approach towards country based operations. Joint venture foundation in Saudi Arabia is supposed to be followed by another foundation in other countries in the next quarters. SAF has also an opportunity to enter new customer segments with our latest products such as CFIP Marathon and SAF FreeMile, thus enhancing SAF brand awareness as well as increasing the Company’s competitiveness.
