"The announcement regarding the definitive agreement to sell our carrier licensed business marks a new strategic direction at Alvarion, one that we believe will deliver shareholder value in the long run. Once the sale is complete, Alvarion will transform into a 'pure play' in the wireless broadband market in the unlicensed frequencies, where we target two market segments: private and public networks in vertical markets and the carrier Wi-Fi market," said Hezi Lapid, President and Chief Executive Officer of Alvarion. "We believe that these two markets hold significant growth potential for us and that we have the right product offering to successfully compete."
Lapid added, "2012 was a challenging year for Alvarion. Nonetheless, the agreement to sell our carrier licensed business marks a significant step forward in executing our new strategic plan for the company. Together with other actions taken over the past several months, we believe that we have made significant progress and expect to complete our turnaround successfully."
