FINANCIAL RESULTS

Second Quarter of Fiscal 2011 Compared with Second Quarter of Fiscal 2010
Net sales increased $0.9 million, or 1.3%, from $74.1 million for the second quarter of 2010 to $75.0 million for the same quarter of 2011. Income from operations decreased $1.6 million, or 16.4%, from $9.3 million for the second quarter of 2010 to $7.7 million for the same quarter of 2011. Net income decreased $2.3 million, from $3.9 million for the second quarter of 2010 to $1.6 million for the same quarter of 2011.
Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure and defined in the attached table) was $11.1 million for the second quarter of 2011 compared to $11.9 million for the same quarter of 2010.
"The soft industry demand caused by difficult economic conditions has persisted in the first half of 2011, and we anticipate the second half of 2011 to also be challenging. While we are optimistic about the longer-term recovery and growth in the new home construction and home improvement markets, the timing and strength of such recovery remain extremely difficult to predict with certainty. As a result, we will continue our aggressive efforts to competitively introduce new products and sales programs while containing costs," commented President and CEO, Mark Buller.
