Operating expenses for the year totaled $4,598,519 compared to $4,495,347 last year.  Interest expense increased because of borrowing costs related to the five acre expansion, and amortization expense was higher as a result of the increase in area. These increases were offset by lower administrative costs and recoveries of bad debts.  Recovery of bad debts totaled $36,013.

Net earnings increased to $571,781 for the year ending June 30, 2012, compared to $44,128 for the year ending June 30, 2011. During the year, $412,428 in income taxes was recovered as the company realized significant tax credits due to its Scientific Research and Experimental Development claims.
