    achieved revenues of $12.5 million representing 9.1% growth over the
    corresponding period of last year. This increase was due to a change in
    product mix to higher price, higher margin products.

    margin during the second quarter to 26.5% from 25.1% during the second
    quarter of last year. 

--  The Company achieved EBITDA before share-based compensation of $3.0
    million during the second quarter, representing a 10.7% improvement

During the second quarter, sales at Asia Packaging increased to $12.5 million, representing a 9.1% increase compared with the corresponding period of last year.
