Bioconnect sales declined 9% to $345,000 from $379,000 in the same period last year, but operating profit improved to $12,000 due to higher gross margins and lower administrative expenses in the quarter.

Sales at Cables Unlimited were $1,734,000 in the fourth quarter and the gross margin was 22% of sales for the period. Acquisition-related depreciation and amortization expenses contributed significantly to the operating loss of $66,000 in the fourth quarter.

RF Wireless sales declined 39% to $151,000 in the quarter and the net operating loss of $160,000 was approximately equivalent to the net loss in the fourth quarter last year.
