Clemex had reasonable success in the manufacturing sector in the USA where the automotive industry continues to perform well since the beginning of the year. We have also concluded important sales in the steel manufacturing industries, a sector of activity that had declined in the last few years. Finally, sales of our MicroHardness Testers, the Clemex CMT.HD keep up at a steady rate, confirming that Clemex is definitely offering one of the best instruments on worldwide market for this field of application. The CEO continued "Sales for this Quarter are in line with our internal forecasts and take us back to profitability. While we work on keeping expenses under control, we invest more in marketing activities in view of the introduction of the new line of instruments for Hematology which should occur within the next six months. Concerning this matter, Clemex along with its French partner RAL Diagnostics participated at one of most important Medical instruments Trade show in the world, Medica in Düsseldorf, Germany this past November where we introduced our latest instrument, the HemaCyto 2L and the interest from the show attendees was extremely positive. We have also just exhibited the same instrument this week in Atlanta GA, USA, at the ASH (American Society for Hematology) conference where we also had an excellent response from the American Medical community. Our R & D team is working very hard to fine tune the last details of the instruments while a three month validation period will be required before the official launching".
