    Third Quarter and First Nine Months of 2009 Financial Highlights

    -   Sales for the third quarter of 2009 amount to $9.52 million as
        compared with $9.54 million in the prior-year quarter. Sales for the
        nine months of 2009 were $26.6 million as compared to $28.9 million
        a year ago despite the global economic weakness this year.

    -   Gross profit for the third quarter and first nine months of 2009 was
        $3.2 million and $8.1 million, respectively, compared to $2.2 million
        and $7.4 million a year ago, representing a dramatic increase of
        48.3% and 9.5%, respectively. Gross margin as a percentage of sales

        to a year ago. This significant year-over-year increase in gross
        profits was mainly attributable to the shift to high profit margin
        products and operational efficiency.

        $0.03 per share compared to $0.77 million (8% of sales) or a $0.02
