Sales decreased by $15.2 million for the quarter and by $26.3 million or 12% year-to-date. Of the decrease in the quarter, $8.6 million is due to declines in sales of rubber compounds to both the major tire and heavy belting sectors. The volume in the tire industry has been replaced starting in October, 2012 which should lead to improved divisional performance in the fourth quarter. The Company has also won new business in the international mining market and this should begin to offset some of the decline to the belting industry attributed to reduced demand in the coal mining sector.

Sales of military protective wear to the US military are on plan, but at reduced levels and this accounts for the remainder of the decreased sales. The Company is increasing production of its CBRN protective overshoes in November, in anticipation of the finalization of contracts, which is a significant increase in orders for 2013.

The Industrial Products business is performing slightly ahead of expectations due to the increased demand for tire retread products and this is expected to continue for the remainder of the year.

The Company moved its Defense products business into its new research & development and administrative offices in July. Work is progressing well on new products and we hope to have multiple working prototypes before the end of the calendar year.

AirBoss of America Corp. develops, manufactures, and sells high quality, proprietary rubber-based products offering enhanced performance to military and industrial markets. The Company is a world leader in the development and production of CBRN protective wear. With a capacity to supply 250 million pounds of rubber annually to a diverse group of rubber manufacturers, AirBoss is also one of North America's largest custom rubber compounding companies. The Company's shares trade on the TSX under the symbol BOS. Visit www.airbossofamerica.com.
