Strategic Growth Initiatives Taking Hold
The strategic initiatives implemented during the last several years have resulted in measurably improved top line results and profitability. The Company is continuing to make incremental investments in alignment with existing strategic goals, including increasing brand awareness, the expansion of Capstone International's Hong Kong operations and widening the product distribution channels both domestically and into overseas markets. Additionally, through investment and collaboration with AC Kinetics, the Company has developed new intellectual property which provides a roadmap for the expansion of power failure lighting solutions into new and innovative applications, serving our customers needs with more efficient and forward trending designs.
Stewart Wallach, Capstone's CEO noted, "Our strategic investments are beginning to yield favorable results and we have several upcoming major milestones, providing a clear pathway to additional growth on the horizon. I am particularly encouraged by the new products that will utilize the patent pending technology developed through our collaboration with AC Kinetics. We are pressing to debut the initial round of these products ahead of this year's Hardware Show on May 6th.
"2013 was clearly a year of accomplishments for Capstone and the Company's momentum has never been stronger. 2014 will mark the most exciting and extensive product roadmap in the Company's history. While remaining focused on the safety and security categories, we are extending our lighting applications which will enable us to serve more departments within the retail environment. Our company continues to execute its long-term plan and maintain its commitment and belief in building value through strong fundamental performance."
He added, "I encourage you all to join us on our webcast and conference call tomorrow morning to learn more about the exciting things we are doing to build on the successes of 2013 and drive further growth."
