"To build sales and profit, we are looking at creative ways to supplement our core dealer customer base by developing unique product categories that will be sold and marketed in new targeted market channels.
"The Company continued its cost cutting and restructuring efforts which resulted in only a 3% increase in operating expenses (mostly in selling and service related expenses) while sales grew by 7% in comparing the first quarter 2011 to 2010."
