Review and Outlook

"During the fourth quarter we have made strides in getting back to our core business," said William J. Lally, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We divested ourselves of our New Jersey business at the end of August and have further reduced expenses in our core business which can be seen where our SG&A is down for the quarter by $141,082 when compared to the same quarter last year. Although we have made strides in reducing our expenses during the quarter, revenue for the three months when compared to the prior year is down because of lower ocean shipping activity."

Lally continued, "We are focused on returning the company to profitability and growing our sales. During the month of September, Steve Cesarski, our retired President, came back to the company to spearhead sales growth in the Northeast and in late October we raised additional capital from a new investor which will help support our initiatives."

Lally concluded, "We are committed to turning Janel around and returning value to our shareholders."
