Further, strategically, these funds will be deployed to dramatically update and improve our core power solutions business and at the same time, research and pursue other high growth opportunities. While we are confident that we can compete aggressively in the information technology space, we can be even more effective in our targeted growth markets of defense and medical grade power solutions.” Kohn added "While our primary focus will continue to be on power and other electronic systems, we will consider initiatives that could broaden our presence in other rapid growth markets.”
