(OTC Markets: AVTC) (www.autoretail.com), a technology leader in developing automated retailing systems, customized kiosks and micro-stores, announced that they have received an updated recommendation from IPODesktop.com, one of the world's most respected sites for stock analysis.
The report stated that AVT's top line revenue has grown on average 45% per year for the past five years, and continues to increase for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2012.
"AVT is in a fast-growing industry," the report stated. "Frost and Sullivan research documented that the automated retailing sector is growing at a 49% compound annual growth rate (CAGR)."
"AVT has positioned itself for growth," James Winsor, CEO of AVT commented. "Our goal is to reach $100 million a year in revenues, so we are carefully acquiring companies and technologies, while placing our own systems into the market."
