Letter from our President Like many companies worldwide, DDC has had to focus and remain strong in the face of adversity this year. The current economic climate presents certain challenges, but it also allows us to evaluate exciting new opportunities. As they say, on every cloud there is a silver lining. In 2009 we opened our first Branch Office in South America. DDC Latin America, based out of Medellin, Colombia, provides the ideal base for efficient distribution, logistics, and customer service to the LATAM region. In close partnership with our sole distributor in Brazil, we expect steady growth as these markets demand cost-effective IT solutions at an ever-growing rate. Our new product lineup is also as strong as ever. The IP surveillance sector continues to expand and we've introduced new innovative cameras and PoE accessories to make installation fast and easy for system integrators. In April, LevelOne Ethernet Switches recently broke the Guinness World Record for the world's longest continuous LAN party (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia). Thank you to our sole distributor Ivenue for deploying our switches as the complete backbone network for this momentous event. 274 enthusiastic gamers and 40 hours later, we can proudly state that LevelOne is record-breaking brand. Equip, the DDC brand of network peripheral devices and connectors, also made a special announcement as a sleek new logo was officially put into use earlier this year. This will help increase brand identity and recognition as Equip continues to gain market share in retail channels across Europe. Lastly, we will soon release the details of our new channel partner program: The LevelOne World Club. This provides the necessary framework for all our global partners to increase sales, offer incentives, and solidify relationships with our channel partners worldwide. As you can see, there has rarely been a dull moment here at DDC. We sincerely hope that the rest of the year remains as interesting and fast-paced; we thrive in providing unique solutions for our customers and brands in such dynamic times. From everyone at the DDC family, we wish you good luck and continued success. Here's to a healthy future together. All the best, R端diger Riedl, President and CEO Digital Data Communications Group
