In mid-2008, we implemented a new strategy extending our distribution network to cover numerous new market segments.

Simultaneously, we launched a promotional effort for our standard and modified standard high density, high flexibility products, which, along with several cost reduction initiatives, resulted in improved gross margins in 2008."
