Sales of First Defense® and related product line extensions increased by 16.5% during the fourth quarter and 14.4% during the year ended December 31, 2013," commented Michael F. Brigham, President and CEO.

The net operating (loss) was ($210,000) during the three-month period ended December 31, 2013, in contrast to a net operating income of $12,000 during the same period in 2012. The net (loss) was ($151,000), or ($0.05) per share, during the three-month period ended December 31, 2013, in comparison to a net (loss) of ($17,000), or ($0.01) per share, during the same period in 2012.

Regarding the fourth quarter loss, Mr. Brigham added, "During the fourth quarter, we incurred approximately $110,000 in expenses as we initiated our planned investment in a Nisin production plant for Mast Out®. Further, we reduced production output during the last six months of 2013 in order to replace and repair certain pieces of critical process equipment, which resulted in an increase in cost of goods sold. We expect our gross margin percentage to be more in line with our historical norms during 2014."
