Commenting on the results, Mr. Saar Koursh, CEO of Magal, said, “We are very pleased with the results of the fourth quarter. In particular, we are very happy with the very strong level of gross and operating profitability, as well as the continued sequential and steady growth in sales over the past year.”
“Our results in the second half of 2015, favored products and services over projects and this can be seen in the high gross margin levels. In 2015, we retired some older products while launching new products particularly in the fiber space, which contributed to our overall improvement in gross profitability. This effort will continue into 2016. Additionally, throughout the year our projects were of a smaller scale and more diverse, providing us with a more stable and varied income. It is our long-term intention to focus our efforts and strengthen the product and service legs of our business, and our fourth quarter results demonstrate that this strategy is the correct one for Magal,” concluded Mr. Koursh.
