Kendall Hunt, chairman and CEO of Vasco Data Security International, said: As expected, the first quarter of 2009 was very challenging. But also, as expected, we were able to remain profitable while continuing to make substantial investments in new products and increasing our focus on marketing events, which has resulted in a significant number of new customers. We will continue to focus on our most productive markets, be selective in making new investments and maintain our focus on containing our costs and, as a result, expect to be profitable throughout 2009.
