"The new Sonic Solutions will be one of the largest digital media software companies in the world, and the clear leader in CD and DVD creation tools and applications. We're looking forward with great enthusiasm to 2005 as we continue to provide great technology and tools to our many partners, and outstanding digital media experiences to our hundreds of millions of consumer customers."
