Executive Commentary“Valence again posted considerable top and bottom line improvements during the third quarter. These improvements were due to increased sales to customers such as Smith Electric, Segway, and Howard Medical. The commercial fleet sector remains a strong component of our business, but we also continue to experience increased sales in the marine, industrial, and healthcare sectors. Regardless of market segment, we believe the power and safety of our patented lithium magnesium phosphate combined with years of on-the-road fleet experience offers Valence customers performance and reliability they can trust,” commented president and chief executive officer Robert L. Kanode.
