(NYSE MKT: LBMH), we are advised by the company that the financial results mentioned in the first paragraph should be for the "second quarter ended March 31, 2014" rather than the "first quarter ended December 31, 2013" as originally issued.

Liberator Medical Reports Revenue of $17.6 Million for Its Fiscal Second Quarter Ended March 31, 2014
The Company Reports Net Income of $1.6 Million, or $0.03 per share, for the Quarter
STUART, FL -- May 15, 2014 -- Liberator Medical Holdings, Inc. (NYSE MKT: LBMH) today announced the financial results for its fiscal second quarter ended March 31, 2014. Financial highlights are summarized below:
Dollars in thousands Q2 FY2014 Q2 FY2013 Change ----------- ----------- ----------- Net sales $ 17,619 $ 16,734 5.3% Operating income 2,597 2,358 10.1% Net income $ 1,613 $ 1,420 13.6%
Net sales for the three months ended March 31, 2014, increased by $885,000, or 5.3%, to $17,619,000, compared with net sales of $16,734,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013. Net sales for the six months ended March 31, 2014, increased by $1,971,000, or 5.7%, to $36,256,000, compared with net sales of $34,285,000 for the six months ended March 31, 2013. The increase in net sales was primarily due to our continued emphasis on our direct response advertising campaign to acquire new customers and our emphasis on customer service to maximize the reorder rates for our recurring customer base.
Income from operations for the three months ended March 31, 2014, increased by $239,000, or 10.1%, to $2,597,000, compared with the three months ended March 31, 2013. For the six months ended March 31, 2014, income from operations increased by $1,481,000, or 32.1%, to $6,097,000, compared with the six months ended March 31, 2013. The increase in operating income is primarily attributed to increased gross profits driven by our increased sales volumes as well as a reduction as a percentage of sales in payroll and bad debts expense, partially offset by an increase in general and administrative expenses.
Net income for the second quarter of fiscal year 2014 was $1,613,000 or $0.03 per diluted share, compared with net income of $1,420,000, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the second quarter of fiscal year 2013. Net income for the six months ended March 31, 2014 was $3,733,000 or $0.07 per diluted share, compared with net income of $2,772,000, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the six months ended March 31, 2013.
The Company had cash of $9,573,000 at March 31, 2014, compared with cash of $12,453,000 at September 30, 2013, a decrease of $2,880,000. The decrease in cash for the six months ended March 31, 2014, is primarily attributable to $3,411,000 used for taxes, $944,000 of which will be applied to future periods, dividend payments of $3,141,000 and $2,090,000 in increased advertising expenditures.
Mark Libratore, the Company's President and CEO, commented, "In the second quarter we encountered our normal seasonal sales weakness associated with the renewal of calendar year deductibles, continued delayed payments due to Medicare's industry wide auditing of medical supply claims and a significant increase in income tax payments. I am pleased to report that Liberator achieved positive revenue and operating margin growth in our fiscal second quarter.
"As we have done from time-to-time we have taken the opportunity to pulse our advertising expenditures. It is our intent to utilize excess cash to grow our customer base. Our experience has demonstrated the benefit over time of our advertising expenditures including, but not limited to the invaluable insights we gain. We will continue to manage our advertising expenditures to balance growth and cash flow to maximize the return realized by our shareholders."
