The Company also reported net income of $598,000 or $.21 per diluted share for the fiscal 2012 third quarter which was an increase of 51% over the prior year quarter amount of $397,000 or $.14 per diluted share. Year-to-date income also rose with the Company reporting fiscal earnings of $874,000 or $.30 per diluted share versus $559,000 or $.19 per diluted share in the prior year which represented an increase of 56%.

Benjamin Rashleger, president and chief executive officer, commented: “We are very pleased to report on our fiscal 2012 third quarter results that have both sales and income at their highest levels in the last decade. Not only do our fiscal third quarter sales represent an increase of 45% over the prior year quarter, they also exceed any quarter in the last 10 years by over $2 million. Our bottom line profit results also improved with the fiscal 2012 third quarter at $.21 per diluted share equating to a 51% increase over the prior year quarter, which is also at the highest level in the last 10 years.” Rashleger continued: “Our sales growth came from both of our core businesses of recreational vehicles and energy. Our recreational vehicle revenues increased by 38% over the prior year third quarter while our energy business increased by 91%. In particular, our shale fracturing business sales increased a little under four fold in the fiscal 2012 third quarter over the prior year quarter” Rashleger concluded: “We remain very positive about our business as we wrap up fiscal 2012 and are optimistic that fiscal 2013 will show continued improvements. Our customers are clear leaders in their industries, and we have made significant investments in equipment and personnel over the past couple of years to support their growth as we increase our business with them. We look forward to building on our success with continued expansion of our business and by staying focused on the execution of our strategy of partnering with key leaders across industries, and providing them with a superior value and the highest quality service.”
