Commenting on the results, Mr. Eitan Livneh, President and CEO of Magal, said, "We are building on our solid start to 2012, showing additional year-over-year improvements in revenue and profitability as well as improvements over the prior quarter. We achieved this due to our strength in the emerging regions of Asia and Africa, despite weak economies in North America and Western Europe, where a number of projects to which we are supplying products have been delayed. Overall we are very pleased with our second quarter results. "
Continued Mr. Livneh, "We are also pleased with our progress on a strategic basis. We recently launched a long-range fiber product complementing and further broadening our market leading PIDS portfolio. During the quarter, we also entered into an exclusive teaming agreement in Russia with a local security company, a key step in our plan to enter this growing market as an integrator for PIDS and turnkey projects. We continue to look for other adjacent and synergistic markets in which we can enter and bring significant value. Our strong cash levels provide us with significant flexibility and an ability to capitalize on opportunities as they may arise."
