Sales for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 were $15.66 million, an increase of 28% from $12.23 million for the comparative quarter ended December 31, 2012. Sales for the six months ended December 31, 2013 were $29.77 million, an increase of 26% over $23.72 million, the sales achieved in the comparative six month period.

Second quarter results reported net income of $608,000 or 10¢ per share compared with a net loss of $207,000 or 3¢ per share in the prior year second quarter.
