Year End 2012 Results

Revenues decreased by $11,282,376 or 8% in Fiscal 2012, to $127,876,610, compared to $139,158,986 in the prior year. This decrease was primarily the result of an industry-wide reduction in bullion demand, which significantly affected our bullion sales, driving a $7,913,158 or 11% decrease in bullion sales. This decrease was partially offset by additional sales related to the acquisition of SBT stores, which occurred in September of 2011.
