We devote significant resources to developing new printing solutions for our target markets and ensuring that our efficiently manufactured products maintain high levels of reliability. Research and development resources are also directed toward enhancing our enterprise solutions systems. The increase in research and development expenditures for ESG in 2008 is mainly attributed to the acquisition of Navis Holdings, LLC late in 2007.
