Highlight of Business Operations:

Net sales increased 6.7% from $27,505,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2011 to $29,335,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2012. The 6.7% increase in net sales for the quarter is primarily attributed to growth in our Uniforms and Related Products Segment. Net sales increased 6.3% from $54,404,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2011 to $57,843,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012. The 6.3% increase in net sales for the six-month period is split between growth in our Uniforms and Related Products Segment (6.1%) and increases in net sales after intersegment eliminations from our Remote Staffing Solutions Segment (0.2%). Intersegment eliminations reduce total net sales for sales of remote staffing solutions to the Uniforms and Related Products segment by the Remote Staffing Solutions segment. See Note 7 to Consolidated Interim Financial Statements for more information and a reconciliation of segment net sales to total net sales.

Remote Staffing Solutions net sales increased 5.3% and 6.2% before intersegment eliminations and 1.3% and 9.7% after intersegment eliminations, respectively, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012. This growth is attributed to additional market penetration in 2012. The rate of growth in this segment slowed in the current quarter as we have worked to integrate the new accounts from recent periods. We have additional new accounts set to start generating revenues in the third quarter and expect this segment to return to strong growth in the third quarter of this year.

As a percentage of net sales, cost of goods sold for our Uniforms and Related Products Segment was 67.6% for the three months ended June 30, 2012 and ­­­­­­­64.4% in the comparable period for 2011. The percentage increase in 2012 as compared to 2011 is primarily attributed to an increase in direct product costs as a percentage of net sales during the current year (3.6%) due to higher raw material costs primarily related to shortages of cotton. This increase was offset by a reduction in overhead costs as a percentage of sales as a result of higher volume in the current period (0.4%).
