The slight decrease in sales was attributed to a decrease in the Company's manufactured products which include; enameled wire, telecommunications cable and power cables. Power cable sales in Thailand were the primary cause of the decrease in sales year over year mainly due to slowdown in customers' orders. Sales of telecommunications cable and enameled wire remained relatively flat year-over-year. Offsetting these declines were double digit increases in the sales of distributed products which increased by71% to $27.8 million, and the revenue recognition of contracts for Supply, Delivery and Installation ("SDI") of cable which increased by 337% to $7.1 million for the period.
