Comments of the CEO
"We have noticed a growing uncertainty in our markets resulting in lower net sales for the fourth quarter compared to the third quarter 2011. The Japanese market was weak and this uncertainty will extend into the nearest future. The German market is cautious but we can see positive signals amongst other in the Automotive segment. The American market continues to develop positively. We can see a continued success related to customized solutions of our technology to leading actors in the market, but this business will not have an effect on our sales figures until the later part of 2012 and going forward."
