Comments

"Following a phase of corporate reorganization within the Group and strategic realignment, Beta Systems will be heading into the 2006 financial year with a new structure and a new management team. Supported by a new decentralized management structure, we have created streamlined decision-making processes with greater managerial empowerment in the respective business units and a more responsive organization with enhanced customer relations," said Niroumand. "I look forward to my new responsibilities. The first challenge will be to step up the process of corporate realignment on the basis of the Group’s new structures. We shall remain committed to cost streamlining. However, my principal focus will be on revenue growth. The new organizational structure will provide us with fresh impetus."
