Our leadership team has set goals that will accelerate the company's revenue growth and increase its operating margin. These goals mainly focus on the standardization of our product offering, providing a cloud-based version of our Operations Support System/Business Support System (OSS/BSS) product called NTS to small operators, and expanding our footprint through partnerships and system integrators in target markets. This development continues in 2013.
We will continue to market in the Middle East and seek opportunities in Africa as it has large infrastructure and telecom projects. NTG Clarity's brand name is gaining increased recognition worldwide as a reliable, quality, cost-effective supplier to telecom and network service providers. This is an enormous market and we will continue work on improving our market share through the enterprise and wireless areas of the business. We expect to achieve revenue growth throughout 2013 as we deliver on recently acquired contracts, service these contracts on an ongoing basis, and penetrate new market opportunities.
Management continues to feel that the underlying value of the business is not fully reflected in its share value and is committed to adding further shareholder value through revenue growth, cost control and effective investment promotion.
