"The macroeconomic environment represented a significant challenge for Trimble throughout 2009.  Although difficult, we saw improving stability in the second half of the year which provided us with the opportunity to demonstrate year-over-year progression in the fourth quarter," said Steven W. Berglund, Trimble's president and chief executive officer. "This reinforces our anticipation of meaningful revenue growth in 2010, with strong operating leverage providing the potential to grow earnings significantly faster than revenue.  Trimble employees have distinguished themselves in a historically unprecedented period by confronting the needs of the short term while continuing to develop the platform for future growth.  As a result, our fundamental long-term strategy and financial model remain intact and have not been impaired by the cost reductions taken during the recession," concluded Berglund.
