Michael Benstock, Chief Executive Officer, commented: "We are again very pleased to report improvement in our net sales and earnings for the second quarter of 2008, particularly in light of the significant economic downturn. We are continuing to find operating efficiencies in our business even while most costs associated with running our business are increasing at unprecedented rates.
Our financial position remains very strong with a current ratio of 6.8:1. We believe that the market has continued to undervalue our common shares. We have repurchased approximately 192,000 shares during the second quarter and we are actively looking for additional blocks of stock to repurchase at this time.”
