Commenting on the results, Oozi Cats, Chief Executive, said:
2010 and the subsequent months have been very important for the development of Telit. Through 2010 itself, we achieved strong organic growth successfully capitalising on the returning growth in the m2m industry which is emerging from the economic downturn. Our rate of organic growth was higher than the relative increase in growth of the m2m market itself and our major competitors, which illustrates the quality of our product portfolio, our customer relationships and the strength of our sales and distribution network.

Our hard work over the past few years at building a market leading platform to capitalise on the exciting opportunities within the m2m market is paying off and we are encouraged by the fact that Telit has continued to increase its market share in 2010. With the aim of strengthening our strong market position, we completed the acquisition of Motorola m2m in March 2011. We are very excited about the opportunities this significant acquisition will deliver and the Board is confident that Telit is now even better placed to achieve its objective of becoming the leading provider of m2m solutions worldwide.
