In the first six months of fiscal 2012, net sales of home appliances (primarily floor care products) and electronic components increased approximately 18% and 19%, respectively, while revenues in EMS declined approximately 3%, compared to the corresponding period in fiscal 2011.

John C.K. Sham, the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer, said: "While net sales improved in the second quarter and first half of fiscal 2012, our year to date gross profit margins were less than margins in fiscal 2011 as costs of labor, materials and utilities continued to increase. Although commodity prices have recently eased, energy and labor costs continue to rise, which must be addressed as part of our plans to improve profitability."
