    compared to 27% in the same quarter of the previous year as a result of
    higher pricing, lower purchase price and product design improvements.

--  Operation expenses increased by 55% to $2.5 million during the second
    quarter in 2014 over the same quarter of previous year. 48% of this rise

    increases to freight, commission, VAT surtax associated with sales
    increase, and sales staff cost increase associated with the recent
    restructuring of the sales team and sales network and the remaining 52%
    was from increased G&A expenses, including increases to R&D expenditure
