“We are very pleased with the ability we have demonstrated to manage our cost structure and reduce our operating losses on lower sales volume”, commented Glenn Prillaman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We continue to gain momentum with our Stanley brand. While net sales of this product line decreased sequentially as a result of our promotions during the first quarter, they held steady compared to the prior year quarter, our strongest of 2011. According to our retailers, the value of our Stanley product offerings has noticeably increased since this time last year. Our partnerships with overseas vendors continue to strengthen our service position, a key factor that has hindered sales growth to date. Our plan for the Stanley line is working as profits continue to grow.”
