Management believes that the third quarter of 2015 will show a significant increase over that of the second quarter of the year.

“We have begun to make great strides in our journey to become a fully lean company which is making us a much more efficient and effective company for our customers, our associates and our shareholders. As always, the goal of management, our associates and our board of directors is to increase the value of the Company each and every day.”
