Cost of materials including change in inventory of finished goods increased $20.8 million, or 34.0%, to $82.0 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 from $61.2 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. This increase primarily reflects the growth in revenue. As a percentage of revenue, cost of material decreased to 75.9% in the second quarter of fiscal 2014, compared to 77.1% in the second quarter of fiscal 2013, primarily due to improved operating efficiencies and economies of scale.

Profit after tax for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 increased 90.0% to $6.3 million, compared to $3.3 million in the quarter of fiscal 2013. Basic and diluted earnings per share (1) was $0.18 compared to $0.09 for the second quarter of fiscal 2013.
