“We are pleased with our results, which reflect ongoing spending on strategic business activities,” stated Edward Kaplan, Zebra’s chairman and chief executive officer. “Our extended global reach generated sales growth in emerging and under-served regions, including China, Eastern Europe and Latin America. Zebra’s reputation for innovation and quality was evident in RFID, where our broad range of printer/encoders and complementary media helped us increase market leadership. Effective channel programs strengthened distribution, and we built important business alliances with integrators for vertical market applications. During the fourth quarter, we introduced new products that are being deployed to serve a wider range of specialty printing solutions. These and other accomplishments will have a greater effect on our business as we progress through 2006. We will also build on this foundation by continuing to invest where we see opportunities to create even greater value for stockholders over the long term. The outlook for Zebra is positive and we remain optimistic about our future.”
