The company's gross profit and gross profit percentage for the thirteen week period ending September 29, 2012 were approximately $882,000 and 25%, respectively, compared to $1,121,000 and 31%, respectively, for the period ending October 1, 2011. The decrease in gross profit and gross profit percentage for the thirteen week period in 2012 was due to the decrease in sales and an increase in sales promotions and allowances incurred in an effort to expand future sales.  The company's gross profit and gross profit percentage for the thirty-nine week period ending September 29, 2012 were approximately $2,828,000 and 27%, respectively, compared to $3,436,000 and 28%, respectively, for the period ending October 1, 2011. The decrease in gross profit and gross profit percentage for the thirty-nine week period  in 2012 was due to the lower level of sales.

For the thirteen week period ended September 29, 2012, the company reported a loss of $279,000 before an income tax benefit of $62,000 compared to income before income taxes of $70,000 for the thirteen week period ended October 1, 2011. As a result, the company recorded a net loss of $217,000 $(0.04) per share on a basic and diluted basis) for the thirteen weeks ended September 29, 2012 compared to net income of $34,000 ($0.01 per share on a basic and diluted basis) for the thirteen weeks ended October 1, 2011.   The company reported a loss of $785,000 before an income tax benefit of $259,000 for the thirty-nine week period ended September 29, 2012 compared to income before income taxes of $99,000 for the thirty-nine week period ended October 1, 2011.

As of September 29, 2012, the company's working capital was approximately $3.9 million, with approximately $0.2 million in cash and cash equivalents,  compared with working capital of $4.4 million and approximately $1.6 million in cash and cash equivalents at December 31, 2011.  The decrease in cash and cash equivalents reflects in part the buildup of inventory of our new products that were introduced during the third quarter.   

Mr.  David Mintz, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the company stated, "Our  results for the first nine months of 2012 continue to reflect the impact of the loss of Trader Joe's as a customer. We are working to replace those sales with aggressive promotional sales activities.  We believe that our sales and gross margins will improve during the remainder of fiscal 2012 due to the continued roll-out of our new products and price increases instituted in the second and  third quarters of this year."
