Companies Mentioned in This Interview Click for more info and related articles UNIT.BRU View PDF Version HAIM SHANI is Chief Executive Officer of Unitronics IndustrialAutomation Systems. Mr. Shani has also been the Chairman of Unitronics'Board of Directors since the company's incorporation in 1989. He is alsoa member of the Board of Directors for Unitronics South Africa. Duringthe years 1984-1988, Mr. Shani served as general manager of CST Ltd., acompany engaged in the development and manufacture of roboticcontrollers and military equipment. TWST: Perhaps the best place to begin is with a brief history and an overview of the main business of Unitronics? Could you profile your company and highlight the most significant recent events?Mr. Shani: Unitronics was established 11 years ago in 1989. It was involved in providing dedicated solutions for industrial automation , 'that was our general activity at the beginning. In the last 4-5 years there have been major changes. We began to design, develop, produce, and market a special line of PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers), the computer 'brains' that control automated production lines. We introduced to the market a product called the OPLC, which is a PLC integrated with an HMI (Human-Machine-Interface) operator panel. We believe we were the first ones in the world to offer such a combination, which allows a production line machine operator to communicate directly with the 'brain' that controls a machine. Without the communication interface, every time there is a problem in the machine, the brain, the controller, recognises what the problem is and can detect exactly why, but cannot communicate the information to the operator -and we lose production hours. The OPLC is able to provide the machine operator with information regarding the reasons for, what to do with and how to proceed when there is a problem. I believe this to have been the most user-friendly solution available at the time on the market. Recently, we developed a revolutionary concept whereby an industrial controller with these user- friendly features can be connected to the Internet. We realised that it's not possible for us to develop and support such concept without considerable working capital. That was one of the reasons we sought financing possibilities, and as you know in the last quarter of 1999 we effected our IPO, which afforded us with funds to invest, in particular, in the company's marketing and the working capital required to develop this product. This product is called WebPLC (a Unitronics trademark). As far as we know today, it's the only embedded solution that offers a PLC direct connectivity to the web, not like other solutions of which we are aware which allow a PLC or a few PLCs similar connectivity via an IPC or servers. WebPLC devices also include an HMI, a Human-Machine-Interface operator panel.TWST: Since this is going to be a new market, can you give me some idea how you expect it to grow and evolve, and how rapidly you expect it to grow and evolve?Mr. Shani: To my knowledge, the world PLC market today is between $7-8 billion, and can be categorised according to PLC sizes (micro, small, medium and so on). In general we look at communication as a key to the industry's future: the need to connect every machine to a communication network. Today the most inexpensive solution for communication seems to us to be the Internet. We produce mostly micro, small and medium PLCs. We believe the micro to medium PLCs market niche is currently around $4-5 billion, and we are aiming with our projections at revenues representing approximately 1% of the market a few years from now. We are trying to be realistic and not aim at 10% or 20% or half the market. We are not yet an internationally renowned brand name like certain of our competitors, but we believe we can achieve the goal of capturing 1% of the market in a few years.TWST: Since we mentioned a potential competitor, can you talk a little bit about how you see the competitive landscape? Who do you meet in the marketplace when you're competing, and what do you think your competitors advantages are?Mr. Shani: Talking about PLCs , 'it's a field with big players , 'you will find companies like Rockwell from the US with a division called Allen-Bradley; or companies like Siemens, Mitsubishi from Japan, and so on. Currently, to the best of our knowledge, none of these big players offer such an embedded solution. Solutions of which we are aware that they do offer for linking PLCs to the Internet are mainly via gateways like a PC web server installed in the factory. We believe that Unitronics' WebPLC solution offers certain possibilities which are not available through such gateway-based technology. A simple example: if you have an elevator in an apartment block or offices, you can connect such an elevator to the Internet; today the Internet is accessible via cable TV in most modern buildings without requiring any specialised additional infrastructure. Such a solution can allow the elevator company to provide better service, for example, if anyone is stuck in the elevator and presses the alarm button, it may automatically initiate an e-mail to the control centre. The elevator maintenance crew can then run diagnostic tools via the Internet network and check exactly what's going on inside the elevator and what's the reason for the problem, much faster than someone that may or may not hear the alarm. Another example would be vending machines: these can be located at various sites, and allow their operators to access, through the internet, information about the stock levels of the machine and whether everything is working properly. We believe the key to the future is communication.TWST: Can you explain what barriers to entry exist for the sector that you're in? What stops new companies challenging?Mr. Shani: It's difficult to say, but I think one of the most problematic points is to maintain a very high level of R&D because things are moving very fast today-the life cycle of a product is getting shorter and shorter; so to be fast and innovative is the biggest problem-and of course to have enough resources for marketing. We have recently been emphasising the importance of hiring very professional and experienced people for marketing, which we believe, has brought good results. We have recently expanded our distribution channels in many European countries, some countries in South America, in Asia, Australia and New Zealand. I see this combination of R&D and marketing as the key to success.TWST: So you now feel that you have the marketing operation in place that maybe was not as developed beforehand in the past. Can you tell me a little bit about your R&D operation? What percentage of sales is reinvested in R&D; how large a part of your business is it?Mr. Shani: We believe that in the coming 1 or 2 years we will have to invest in R&D more than we had initially intended. It depends, among other things, also on the future of emerging communication technologies and trends; but it may become quite an investment.TWST: Which parts of the manufacturing do you actually outsource, and what pieces do you keep in-house?Mr. Shani: We don't believe that we have any added value in manufacturing, especially in the industrial climate in Israel, where you can easily find good sub-contractors. We try to outsource as much as possible. Currently the Company attends to component purchasing and, following manufacturing by sub-contractors, conducts quality assurance tests in-house.TWST: We didn't talk at the beginning about the IPO, except very briefly. Can you tell me what it's going to enable you to do in terms of your growth strategy, in terms of acquisitions that you might be looking at?Mr. Shani: Let's start with the second point. We have recently begun considering acquisitions, for example, of companies which are similar but not competitive with our products. Companies with complementary technologies are of interest for us since they may enable us to offer a much wider portfolio of solutions for distributors and end-users, while using our current distribution base. In addition, we are heavily investing in R&D and marketing, and expect such investments to positively influence this year's results. For the year 2000, we are aiming at revenues of approximately $10 million. We believe we will also need to adequately conform our logistics and management abilities to address the expected growth.TWST: So the most important challenge for you over the next 6-12 months is managing this new growth. Can you tell me a little bit about your management team; can you tell me a little bit about the areas on which you personally focus, and the other key people in Unitronics?Mr. Shani: You are right. We do believe that management is the key to our success. The management philosophy that we have in the company is that the quality of people is something we have to ensure from, as we say in Israel, private to general, and everybody should be involved and motivated. I think we are successful at that. As regards myself, for more than a year I have been involved more in building the management team than in management of day-to-day operations; We recently appointed a new C.T.O., Mr. Saban, who will be in charge of high-level management for the R&D team, and try to take a long-term view. We have a C.F.O., Mr. Itscovich, who has been working in the company since 1994; and I think we have very high-level people in engineering and R&D.Mr. Kedar serves since June 1999 as V.P. of Marketing , 'actually we hardly see him in the company, since he returns to Israel only on weekends.Mr. Kedar came to us with very good references; he served as sales director for a company called Zag, which, to our knowledge, had a very fast growth rate, from approximately $4 million to approximately $100 million in approximately 4 years.TWST: Who is making the strategic investment decisions at Unitronics? Who is sitting down and thinking about the future 2 to 5 years out?Mr. Shani: It's mainly a group of 3 people internally in the company: our C.T.O., our C.F.O. and myself; and in most of these decisions we involve the board of directors. One member of the board isMr. Jaegermann, the CEO. of Prolaser. Prolaser also experienced a rapid growth during the last one-and-a-half/two years; andMr. Jaegermann has quite a lot of experience with acquisitions for Prolaser, which has recently reported the acquisition of certain companies of the Rodenstock Group. So this team, together with the board of directors meet together frequently to discuss these and other matters.TWST: If we turn to the financial ratios of the company, what is the most important financial ratio or the most important number in the financial reports?Mr. Shani: Currently in the company we devote most of our attention to revenues. We believe that securing a market share as fast as possible is the most important task for the coming one or even two years. The level of gross and net profit is expected to be within the projected figures however, if we proceed with expanding R&D expenses, in particular with respect to emerging communication technologies, our bottom line is expected to be affected accordingly.TWST: When you sit down with equity analysts and other investors in the company, what sorts of concerns, what sorts of subjects do they raise with you?Mr. Shani: Mainly the competitive edge of the company regarding technology; that's the most common concern of the analysts. Most of the time they get a very good feeling after they see our customer / end-user base. End-users of our products and services include major companies world-wide like Philips, Agfa and Nestle.TWST: You have Danone, Elf, Israel aircraft industries, Heinz, Nestle, so there's clearly a blue chip client base. What sorts of expectations have these companies got vis-'-vis your products going forward?Mr. Shani: I think it varies from company to company, but we believe that most of them are impressed with the high level of technical and innovative solutions which we believe that we offer. We think that they're also very convinced of the quality and the reliability of our products. At the end of the day, the right product, one that is reliable and based on the right technologies, will simply make money for these companies. One such blue-chip end-user (a soft-drink manufacturer) researched its own production lines, measured the down-time of each production line and their capacity and production speed, divided the cost per bottle or the cost per can, and they came to a very clear conclusion, that using our solutions simply saved money.TWST: Can you tell me about the geographical distribution of your markets? Are most of your customers in the US or are they in Europe? How is it spread around the world?Mr. Shani: Our marketing has developed considerably in the last few months. Most of our market is in Europe and Israel. We have quite a lot of contacts in Asia and Latin America. We have not yet heavily invested in accessing the North American market, which we plan to begin during the second half of this year. We do of course have the initial contacts with distributors, but we decided to actively pursue further marketing activities after a trade exhibition due for next month. I assume most of the results of our activities in North America will be reflected in the financial results of the last quarter of the year 2000 and those of the year 2001.TWST: If you were sitting down with a group of potential US investors, how would you summarise the essential proposition or mission of Unitronics?Mr. Shani: In our projection we are aiming for 1% of the world market in a few years. We believe that reactions from the market indicate that we may exceed this percentage. Looking at the price situation in our market in the US (again, I'm not talking about the wide market; I'm talking about distributors and some users, machine-builders, for example), we are strengthened in our belief that we may be able to achieve the estimate of 1% of the market and perhaps even exceed such number.TWST: Are there any other points that you'd like to highlight?Mr. Shani: The only thing is of course that we expect growth, and this growth is linked to this revolution that you see everywhere, the communication revolution. To be honest, the only thing we are doing is just bringing this communication revolution to the industrial automation field. It's nothing new; it's just new in our field.TWST: Thank you.HAIM SHANI Chief Executive Officer Unitronics Industrial Automation Systems 2 Hamelacha Street Northern Industrial Zone Lod Israel 972 897 86 555 972 892 13 888 - FAXEach Executive who is the featured subject of a TWST Interview is offered the opportunity to include an Investors Brief or other highlight material to be provided and sponsored by and for the company.

United States Patent 6,685,635
Shani ,   et al. February 3, 2004

Non-invasive method and apparatus to detect and monitor early medical shock, and related conditions

Abstract
A diagnostic medical instrument adapted to determine whether a patient is suffering from a pre-shock, shock, or shock-related condition. The instrument is used in a capillary filling time CFT test procedure in which a skin area in the patient which overlies blood-filled capillaries which normally display a pink color is depressed to expel blood from the capillaries and impart white color to the skin at which point the pressure is released to permit blood to flow back into the capillaries and cause the skin to regain its pink color. The instrument includes a color sensor trained on the sign area and responsive to light reflected therefrom to produce a first signal at the point in time the skin color turns from pink to white and to later produce a second signal at the point in time at which the skin color has turned from white to pink. The time elapsing between the first and second signals is measured to provide a CFT index indicative of the patient's condition.
