"Frontline was presented with challenges in 2011, with two notable ones shaping our year. The first was the integration of Frontline and Belzberg and the second was the rapidly evolving marketplace. The integration of the two companies, though resource intensive and initially disruptive to the organization, will yield many benefits in the years to come. The financial results provide early indication of this in the cost savings achieved from combining the two firms' infrastructures. In doing so, we were able to greatly reduce the monthly burn of the Belzberg business. In 2012, we look forward to executing on strategies that further exploit the benefits of the combined entity. The challenges in the market place presented an ever more sophisticated clientele with rapidly evolving requirements while price compression continued to depress trading technology revenues. Frontline will spend a considerable amount of time and effort in assessing the marketplace in 2012 and craft a strategy that offers a path to profitability and continued viability as a solutions provider," said Hoss Astaraki, Chairman and CEO.
