TWST: What is the current size of the market for your products, and how do you expect the market to grow over the next few years?

Mr. Interiano: There are different market studies in the industry, whether it is the Goldman Sachs report or other reports. It talks about a very aggressive growth of LED technology into the marketplace. The market size for our roadway lighting, our Aimed Optics street-lighting products, varies between $8 billion and $15 billion. The total market as quoted by third-party research reports is greater than about 70 billion euros - $94.6 billion.

TWST: Can you talk a little bit more about your products? Are there any new products or products that are really getting traction that you can highlight for us?

Mr. Interiano: We are proud of our Aimed Optics-powered streetlight solution. It has won awards from the U.S. Department of Energy and was rated high in energy efficiency in the DOE's Kansas City GATEWAY study. We have a mathematical advantage due to our intellectual property compared to other LED technologies. Our Aimed Optics approach was awarded a U.S. patent on January 22 of this year, so we are especially proud of the achievements of our streetlight solutions.

TWST: Last time we spoke, you said that one of your top goals was to ramp up your production using a just-in-time philosophy. What progress have you made toward that goal?

Mr. Interiano: We are done with the redesign of the products. We are done or complete with the manufacturing strategy and execution of our products, and right now in our new facility, we are in the middle of implementing our warehouse system that will house our just-in-time component and finished goods processes.

TWST: What presence do you have in international markets, and who are your partners in some of your key international markets?
