We experienced another strong quarter, especially given the normally downward cyclical trends of January and February.

We anticipate strong sales growth during 2015 and 2016 with improving margins, remarked Jack Eldridge, CFO.
During the latter part of May we will officially launch the envelope model of PowerStrips, SolarStrips and BeautyStrips. The company continues to exceed its growth goals and forecasts. New products will be introduced to bolster sales and management is consistently making improvements to the marketing plan to enhance the success the company is experiencing. We look forward to our bright future, stated Ron Williams, CEO.
