Yuval Viner, BOS CEO, stated: "We are pleased to report ongoing growth trends and improved results for our continuing operations, for the fourth consecutive quarter in 2010. We expect a net profit (on a GAAP basis) in 2011. Our outlook for revenues in 2011 is at least $33 million, reflecting a 10% growth over 2010 continued operations. We are also forecasting EBITDA to grow by 10% or more, to at least $2.3 million, compared to $2.1 million last year. We are in the process of establishing partnerships with systems integrators in Europe, and we expect 2011 to be the first year of international sales of our BOS ID software platform."

Avidan Zelicovsky, BOS President, stated: "The supply chain division has had a strong start in 2011, and we are continuing to diversify in terms of the types of customers we are serving. Our supply chain international customer base is expected to show continued growth in 2011."
