Domestic sales accounted for 77.9% and 73.5% of the revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

Gross profit as a percentage of net sales was 38.2% in the three months ended June 30, 2012 as compared to 39.3% in 2011 due to higher unit cost of manufacture. Profit margins can fluctuate depending upon, among other things, the cost of manufactured product and the capitalized cost of product recorded in inventory, as well as product sales mix. Royalty expense increased 3.3% due to higher gross sales revenues.

Operating expenses decreased 6.3% or $261 thousand. The decrease in General and administrative expense was the most significant decrease.
