Cables Unlimited sales of $909,000 for the quarter resulted in operating profits of $88,000 for the quarter. Cables Unlimited's gross margin was 37% of sales, due to the peak Summer sales period, compared to its annual average gross margin of approximately 27%.

Operating income was $121,000, compared to $153,000 in the third quarter last year. The sales decline is associated with seasonal inventory adjustments by Bioconnect's major customers.

RF Wireless sales more than doubled to $255,000 from $120,000 in the same period last year due to higher sales and profitable operations at RF Neulink. Operating losses declined to $118,000 from $392,000 in the third quarter last year.
