BATM is a leading provider of real-time technologies with two divisions providing networking and cyber solutions and biomedical systems.
These two divisions have been built on the creation of strong intellectual property backed by strong patents. This is the foundation for the development of BATM’s market-leading innovative and cost-effective solutions in the divisions’ respective fields.
| Bio-Medical Division
The Bio-Medical Division is focused on becoming a leading provider of diagnostic laboratory equipment as well as innovative products to treat biological pathogenic waste in the medical, agricultural and pharmaceutical industries.
In the field of laboratory diagnostic equipment, the Group has developed its own equipment and reagents, which have enabled it to grow in various markets and establish an expanding customer base.
While continuing to innovate and increase its presence in traditional markets, the Group is also investing, directly and through joint ventures, in developing the most advanced molecular biotechnology.
The diagnostics unit’s current highly reliable, fast and easy to operate equipment for small diagnostic laboratories are sold primarily to labs in emerging markets, such as China, Russia, Mexico, Brazil and others, which have significant potential for growth. The unit sells instruments as well as associated
reagents and consumables.
In addition, Ador, the joint venture company of BATM’s Bio-Medical Division, is developing a unique rapid-results multiplexed molecular biology diagnostics system, which is already protected by more than 40 granted patents and more pending.
The division’s other innovative solution treats pathogenic and medical waste in laboratories and hospitals, and in pharmaceutical manufacturing plants and for agricultural applications. These solutions are based on unique patented technology that has been used and recommended by the WHO (World Health Organization). The business remains focused on the treatment of medical and biological waste and the expansion of its OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) relationships.
The division is also a distributor of leading brands of other diagnostic equipment suppliers to emerging market countries. The Bio-Medical Division, which focuses on developing countries in Eastern Europe and Asia, continues to benefit from the increase in investment in developing the health systems in these countries. It has partnerships with reagent manufacturers and academic institutions to develop an innovative, “one stop shop”, flexible offering to its customers.
| Networking and Cyber Division
BATM is growing its Networking and Cyber Division to be the worldwide leader of Carrier Ethernet and MPLS access solutions, mainly targeting Tier 1 telecom operators in developed markets. This industry is undergoing a transition to more cloud-based solutions and software defined products, and BATM’s Networking and Cyber Division has shifted its product focus to address these trends.
The Group is servicing a wide need for networking access solutions to the ever-expanding mobile and cloud markets as well as for the wireline infrastructure. The division is working closely with customers and partners to define needs in cloud‑based networks, Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and advanced access solutions. The business model is based on selling a solution that combines integrated hardware and sophisticated software. The Group is expanding its investment in software-based products, which it expects to result in higher volume of software licensing revenues in the coming years.
Management intends to continue to invest significantly in R&D and sales and marketing activities in order to support the organic growth of the business.
In addition, management intends to make bolt-on acquisitions to strengthen its position in the Networking and Cyber Division and Bio-Medical markets to maintain its leading position.
