Additionally, the Company has introduced several new products in 2008 with innovative and unique solutions for our mobile, GPS and panel antenna product lines."

Mr. Marx concluded, "We have a solid balance sheet and will continue to actively explore strategic opportunities through acquisition or other means as the market conditions become more predictable. Until then, in what appears to be a difficult economy for domestic growth, we believe the best way to deliver long-term shareholder value is to continue our focus on international business, conserve our capital and take the actions necessary to ensure the continued performance of our assets."
