The  bleak  picture of the 2010 finances, especially in view of the impressive growth the  Company
has  had  in  2009  are the result of a) the breakdown of the Dubai Market in 2009  and  the  deep
economic crisis of the Greek market.

More  specifically,  the  Dubai near-bankruptcy resulted in many of the projects  to  "freeze"  in
waiting  for developments in the economy. While contracts were not cancelled, progress was stopped
and  payments  were  not made. In addition, no new bids were being published.  This  has  weighted
heavily in the 2010 results. Since then, the Dubai and regional economy has regained momentum  and
projects are now continuing while new ones are being planned.

On  the other hand, the Greek crisis has deepened. While the Company has very limited exposure  to
the  Greek  market, it has not remained untouched by the general upheaval. There are no  signs  of
recovery  of  the Greek economy. The Company will continue its international focus,  relying  even
less in the Greek market.
