The increase in revenues which was in great measure attributable to organic growth across the board, in all regions, consisted of a diversified mix of projects as well as products. Looking ahead into 2019, our pipeline is broad and strong, and the backlog is at a higher level than that with which we started last year. We are therefore excited with our potential ahead.”
