Record revenue growth in the third quarter of 2017 resulted from strong
demand for the Company’s battery powered accent lighting products and
the placement of 5 new lighting products. Products sold under Capstone
Lighting®, Hoover® Home LED and Duracell® brands
experienced significantly higher revenue levels.

Record gross profit was driven by the record revenue volume. Gross
margin as a percent to revenue declined slightly, when compared against
the prior year quarter, however that is after the Company invested an
additional $677 thousand in market promotional spending to support the
launch of the new products.

Selling and marketing expense increased to $928 thousand from $488
thousand in the prior year quarter. During the quarter we expensed $514
thousand of Royalty payments for the branded licenses, resulting from
the higher revenue levels.

Net Operating Income for the quarter 2017 and 2016 was $1.450 million
and $1.604 million, respectively. With a $390 thousand tax provision for
the quarter 2017 Net Income was $991 thousand compared to $1.490 million
in 2016.

Record revenue for the 9 months 2017 of $30.8 million was $8.1 million
or 35.8% higher than in 2016. Record gross profit for the 9 months 2017
of $7.3 million was $1.7 million or 31.1% higher than in 2016 and that
is after investing $1.8 million in product promotional allowances.

Record Operating Income for the 9 months 2017 of $3.2 million was $452
thousand higher than in 2016.

Net Income for the 9 months 2017 was $2.1 million or $331 thousand lower
than 2016, however that is after the Company provided for a tax
provision of $920 thousand or $883 thousand higher than 2016.
