Active Pursuit of Acquisitions
As previously announced, we continue targeting potential acquisitions that could be a source of growth, by focusing on acquisition targets at reasonable valuations that satisfy the criteria we defined: proven revenues, complementary technology or geography and expected accretion to earnings within two to three quarters.
The excess of demand for acquisition targets increased the challenge to find attractive deals.
