Highlight of Business Operations:Sales in our Wholesale Segment increased $39.2 million during Q1 2012 as compared to Q1 2011. Significant items impacting sales during Q1 2012 included a $46.3 million increase in sales related to our acquisition of LPS in May 2011 and a $6.4 million increase in sales related to price increases implemented by cigarette manufactures. These increases were partially offset by a $12.8 million decrease in sales primarily related to the volume and mix of cigarette cartons sold and a $0.7 million decrease in sales in our tobacco, beverage, snacks, candy, grocery, health & beauty products, automotive, food service, and store supplies categories (Other Products).
Sales in our Retail Segment decreased approximately $0.6 million in Q1 2012 as compared to Q1 2011.
