Billy Ladin, Chairman and CEO, said, “We are pleased with our earnings progress over the last fiscal year and particularly the last quarter, and we believe that our EBITDA profitability will continue and possibly improve over the foreseeable future. During the fourth fiscal quarter, we elevated three experienced managers to Vice Presidents, returned over 90% of the employees whose salaries had been reduced as part of the salary reduction plan that began in January to their full compensation levels, and turned our major focus to top line growth. While we are now more focused on revenues, we do not intend to take our eyes off of our goal to improve profitability.”
