Net earnings were $1,217,372 or $.18 per common share (diluted), compared with net earnings of $912,215 or $.14 per common share (diluted) in the 2006 third quarter.
For the nine months ended September 30, 2007, net sales were $91,527,855, compared with net sales of $96,081,293 in the nine months ended September 30, 2006.

Michael Benstock, Chief Executive Officer, commented: “We are pleased with the continued improvement in our earnings this quarter despite the decrease in sales. Net sales in the current quarter were unfavorably impacted as a result of the deferral of significant portions of the sales related to the new programs that we discussed in our earnings release last quarter. Portions of these programs were postponed until the fourth quarter of 2007 and the first quarter of 2008. We still expect these programs to provide significant net sales gains going forward. In addition to these postponements, overall demand from our existing customers was lower in the current period. We continue to reap the rewards of our emphasis on reducing operating costs and from improved sourcing of our products. We expect significant improvement in our operating results in the coming periods as these significant new programs ramp up.”
