Commenting on the results for the three and nine months ended June 30th, Chairman and CEO Reuben Klein stated, "With Q3 profit of $1.1 million, our year to date total is up to $1.3 million, which is $1.2 million ahead of last year to date. The increase in earnings reflects a higher margin and reductions in fixed overhead costs.

In the third quarter we introduced next generation product to a major customer which, along with growth in our Digimerge brand and inhouse web store business, contributed to an increase in year over year third quarter sales. For the year to date, revenue has declined by $1.5 million reflecting a later shipment in the current year of next generation product to a major customer.

While we expect continued growth in demand for video security products by small business and home owners, we also expect average selling prices to decline from competitive pressure and production economies of scale. We believe that there is significant market demand at lower price ranges and we are currently developing more product options for lower price points. To take advantage of this opportunity, we recently launched a new line of plug and play product called "LOREX LIVE" and we expect to introduce the first LOREX LIVE model, the "LIVE snap" baby monitor in the fourth quarter of this year."
