"I am very pleased to report a strong finish to 2013 with the fourth quarter being our best quarter of the year," said Simon F. Nynens, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Q4 2013 income from operations increased by 25%, as compared to Q4 of 2012. We achieved record net income of $6.4 million for 2013."

Cash, marketable securities and long term receivables amounted to $29.6 million, representing 85% of equity as of December 31, 2013 and $6.25 per share as per December 31, 2013. Working capital amounted to $24.0 million, representing 69% of equity as of December 31, 2013.

Net sales for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2013 increased 5% to $89.9 million compared to $85.5 million for the same period in 2012. Net sales for the fourth quarter of 2013 for our Lifeboat Distribution segment were $65.7 million compared to $58.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, representing an increase of 12%. Net sales for the fourth quarter of 2013 for our TechXtend segment were $24.2 million compared to $26.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, representing a decrease of 10%.

Net sales for the year ended December 31, 2013 increased 1% to $300.4 million compared to $297.1 million in 2012. Net sales for our Lifeboat Distribution segment in 2013 were $237.7 million compared to $217.3 million in 2012, representing a 9% increase. Total sales for the TechXtend segment in 2013 amounted to $62.8 million, compared to $79.7 million in 2012, representing a decrease of 21%.

The increases in net sales for the three month and full year ended December 31, 2013, compared to the same periods in 2012, in our Lifeboat Distribution segment were mainly a result of the strengthening of our account penetration, our continued focus on the expanding virtual infrastructure-centric business and the addition of several key product lines, and resulted primarily from sales generated out of the USA sales office. The decrease in net sales in our TechXtend segment was primarily due to a decrease in large single sales transactions and a decrease in extended payment terms sales transactions in the first three quarters of 2013 as compared to exceptionally strong levels of large single sales transactions and extended payment terms sales transactions in 2012.

Gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $7.8 million compared to $7.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 representing an increase of 11%. Gross profit for our Lifeboat Distribution segment for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $5.3 million compared to $4.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, representing a 19% increase. Gross profit for our TechXtend segment for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $2.5 million compared to $2.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, representing a 2% decrease. Vendor rebates and discounts for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 amounted to $0.7 million compared to $0.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2012.

Gross profit for the year 2013 was $24.4 million compared to $23.9 million in 2012, a 2% increase. Gross profit for our Lifeboat Distribution segment in 2013 was $17.4 million compared to $15.8 million in 2012, representing a 10% increase. The increase in gross profit for the Lifeboat Distribution segment was due to increased sales volume as gross profit margin remained relatively stable. Gross profit for our TechXtend segment in 2013 was $6.9 million compared to $8.1 million in 2012, representing a 14% decrease. The decrease in gross profit for the TechXtend segment was the result of decreased sales volume, including a decrease in large single sales transactions and extended payment terms sales transactions, offset in part by a higher gross margin in 2013 as compared to 2012. Vendor rebates and discounts for the year ended December 31, 2013 amounted to $1.7 million compared to $1.5 million for 2012, representing a 13% increase. The increase in vendor rebates and discounts as a percentage of net sales was experienced mainly at the TechXtend segment.

Gross profit margin (gross profit as a percentage of net sales) for 2013 was 8.1% compared to 8.0% in 2012. Gross profit margin for our Lifeboat Distribution segment was 7.3% in 2013 and 2012. Gross profit margin for our TechXtend segment in 2013 was 11.0% compared to 10.1% in 2012. This increase was due to increased pricing and vendor rebates in 2013 as compared to 2012.

The increase in gross profit dollars and the increase in gross profit margins were primarily caused by the sales growth within our Lifeboat Distribution segment and increase in pricing and an increase in rebates earned at our TechXtend segment.

The Company monitors gross profits and gross profit margins carefully. Price competition in our market persisted in 2013. Although our total gross profit margins improved slightly in 2013, we anticipate that margins, as well as discounts and rebates, will be under pressure in the near future.

Total selling, general, and administrative ("SG&A") expenses for the fourth quarter of 2013 were $4.3 million compared to $4.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2012. Total SG&A expenses for 2013 were $15.5 million compared to $15.4 million in 2012, representing an increase of $0.1 million or 0.8%.

For the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2013, the Company recorded a provision for income taxes of $1.2 million and $3.0 million, respectively. The current year effective tax rate was 32.1% compared to 39.6% in 2012, the decrease in the effective tax rate was primarily the result of a change in the state of New Jersey's apportionment rules which lowered our state rate compared with the prior year.

Net income and diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2013 were $2.5 million and $0.55, respectively, compared to $1.8 million and $0.39, respectively for the fourth quarter of 2012. Net income and diluted earnings per share for 2013 were $6.4 million and $1.41, respectively, compared to $5.5 million and $1.19, respectively in 2012.

On February 5, 2014, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $.17 per share of its common stock payable February 28, 2014 to shareholders of record on February 18, 2014.
