“For Integra 2009 was a year of transformation. We have made major changes to our cost structure, our product portfolio, our customer mix and our management structure. Although in absolute terms our business is now smaller in size, we believe we have successfully aligned our capacity with the current market demand which allowed us to improve our EBITDA margins and increase our free cash flow.
Last year we overhauled our balance sheet and today we have a healthy financial standing without liquidity pressure. We have emerged from this challenging year healthier and stronger than before with a robust platform to capture opportunities as they emerge in these recovering markets.”
