Review and Outlook

"We are encouraged with our results for the quarter ended September 30, 2012," said James N. Jannello, Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer.

This is the second consecutive quarter where we have seen improvement in our transportation logistics operations over the corresponding prior fiscal year periods, and we plan to continue to build on our financial turnaround as we move forward."

Jannello concluded, "With the recent investments in our freezer and cold storage capabilities, we anticipate a healthy expansion in warehouse business with our current customers as well as attracting new customers. Looking ahead, and in the very short term, we are working to raise additional capital in order to grow the transportation logistics segment to profitability."
