Total sales for the quarter were $85.7 million, an increase of 44.9% compared to $59.1 million in the second quarter of last year. This increase was primarily attributable to a 53.6% increased sales in retail business as well as a 34.5% increased sales in wholesale business.

Retail sales generated from the Company's retail business for the quarter increased 53.6% to $49.3 million, compared to $32.1 million last year. This increase was primarily due to the increase in new stores opened and same store sales. Ever-Glory had 1055 retail stores as of June 30, 2014, compared to 831 retail stores as of June 30, 2013.

Wholesale sales generated from the Company's wholesale business for the quarter increased 34.5% to $36.4 million, compared to $27.1 million last year. This increase was primarily attributable to increased sales in P.R.C, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Total gross profit for the quarter was $29.3 million, or 34.3% of total sales, compared to $19.5 million, or 32.9% of total sales last year.

Selling expenses for the quarter increased 45.5% to $14.4 million compared to $9.9 million last year. As a percentage of sales, selling expenses increased 10 basis points to 16.8% compared to 16.7% last year. The increase was attributable to the increased average salaries, and increased number of stores, leading to increased numbers of retail employees, as well as the increased store decoration and marketing expenses associated with the promotion of the retail brand.

General and administrative expenses for the quarter increased 36.8% to $7.5 million compared to $5.5 million last year. The increase was attributable to an increase in payroll for additional management and design and marketing staff as a result of our business expansion. As a percentage of total sales, general and administrative expenses decreased 50 basis points to 8.8% compared to 9.3% last year. The percentage decrease was attributable to the increase in our sales.
