Kevin R. Hoben, President and CEO, announced that the Company's Net Sales for the first six months of 2017 were 11.1% higher than last year, increasing to $49,412,000 from $44,466,000 for the periods ending June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively.  Net Sales for the three months ended June 30, 2017 were largely consistent with the second quarter of 2016.  Net Sales for the second quarter of 2017 were diminished primarily by an increase in customer promotional incentives.   

The Company's Net Income for the first six months of 2017 was $7,172,000, compared to $6,356,000 during the same period last year, increasing 12.8%.  For the quarter, Net Income was however 18.3% below last year.  The Company incurred higher raw material costs in comparison to the second quarter of 2016, which have been addressed though our own pricing actions to offset the imbalance.  There were also additional expenses accrued related to the Company's phantom stock plan, resulting primarily from the recent increase in the Company's stock price.
