Mike Harlan, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We continued to achieve strong sales with our third consecutive quarter of record sales. Our cash flow also continues to be strong and our net debt at the end of the quarter was down to only $51,000. We have generated this cash while continuing to invest in product development. We completed development of the new Cargo Winch for the C-27J JCA aircraft for Alenia/L-3 and the U.S. Air Force during our second quarter and expect to make production shipments later this year. We also delivered a prototype weapons handling system for the Predator-C program. We have been strategically increasing inventory levels in ways that we expect will improve customer service and satisfaction. Despite this investment in inventory, our balance sheet has ample liquidity with a very strong cash position and we remain well clear of our debt covenants."
