Commenting on the results, Danny Haran, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cimatron, noted "We are very pleased to report strong results for the third quarter and first 9 months of 2011. The new license year-over-year revenue growth is especially satisfying when recalling that last year's Q3 was an exceptional third quarter in many ways. We are getting very positive feedback on the new product versions, both for CimatronE and for GibbsCAM. While economic uncertainty remains very high, early Q4 indications suggest we will be able to maintain our momentum and close a successful and profitable year," concluded Mr. Haran.
