\"We are in the midst of a genuine recovery in demand,\" commented Andrew Cogan, CEO. \"While we are benefiting from improved demand conditions, it is encouraging to see our rate of growth accelerating relative to the overall industry as our new product initiatives gain significant traction led by our innovative Generation by Knoll work chair. Our team did a nice job of sequentially leveraging this growth to improve on our industry leading levels of profitability. With all our leading indicators continuing to show double digit year over year growth we look forward to ending 2010 on a positive note.\"
