Gross margins for the second quarter were slightly lower as a higher proportion of sales were to large high volume lower margin accounts. Expenses as a percentage of sales for the second quarter and the first two quarters combined were 20.9% and 21.8 % respectively compared to 20.4% and 22.1% for the same periods last year. The corporation earned a pre-tax profit of C$ 322,467 in the second quarter compared to a pre-tax profit of C$ 172,897 last year.

Although retained earnings were approximately the same as for the quarter ended June 30, 1999, net shareholders“ equity grew to C$ 5.5 million as at June 30, 2000 from C$ 1.0 million last year, principally on account of new equity being raised during the year through two private placements and as a result of the shares issued for the acquisition of Guildfords. In addition, working capital increased to approximately C$ 5.0 million as at June 30, 2000 from approximately C$ 1.4 million as at June 30, 2000. Working capital remained approximately the same from March 31, 2000 to June 30, 2000.
