Dr. Louis F. Centofanti, Chairman and CEO, commented, "Our strong cash flow and solid balance sheet have allowed us to favorably renegotiate the terms of both our Term Loan and Revolving Line of Credit.  We are pleased with the terms extended by our lender and expect to take advantage of the lower LIBOR interest rates."
