On a consolidated basis, the Company reported net sales for the third quarter of 2013 of $77.2 million as compared to $64.4 million for the third quarter of 2012, an increase of $12.7 million or 20%.

"In reviewing our 2013 third quarter, we are pleased to have posted our fourth consecutive quarter of double digit revenue growth," commented Robert H. Spilman, Jr., President and CEO. "Our multi-pronged sales strategy continues to bear fruit as we leverage our high level of service and logistics competencies over a broader spectrum of distribution. While we experienced modest increases in wholesale shipments to our retail network in the quarter, we again gained share with independent furniture dealers and in our juvenile products division. Also, shipments to our open market HGTV dealer network met our internal goals for the period.
