DURHAM, N.C., Sept. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- EMRISE CORPORATION (OTCBB: EMRI), a multi-national manufacturer of defense, aerospace and industrial electronic devices and communications equipment, today announced it has received final documentation for a Communications Equipment order valued at approximately euro 1.2 million ($1.7 million) for the manufacture and delivery of fiber-optic modems to be used in a communications network in French-speaking North Africa. The order was received by EMRISE's Communications Equipment subsidiary in Europe. With the recent receipt of the final documentation, the order is expected to be shipped to the customer within the next 30 to 45 days.
EMRISE Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Carmine T. Oliva said "We believe this order could be an early sign that the Company's prospects for a rebound in future business in French-speaking North Africa are beginning to improve, especially as greater political stability in the region returns.
"We have always maintained a competitive advantage in French-speaking North Africa," Oliva added. "Our French Communications Equipment subsidiary has an excellent product line and because it has sold equipment into that region for years, it has accumulated a great deal of knowledge about local customs, requirements and business practices. Because most of the communications networks installed in French-speaking North Africa are supported by the French government, our presence in France and successful track record and experience in that region have served us well over the years."
Oliva also confirmed that EMRISE expects to be profitable for this year's fourth quarter and to meet its previously announced revenue goal of between $33 million and $35 million for 2011.
