"Our financial results were as expected. Sales are down and margins have stabilized as compared to the 4th quarter of Fiscal 14. Net income as a percentage of sales was a respectable 16%. We are working hard to maintain profitability and grow our backlog with a long-term vision. To that end, we are starting to see some benefits from our revamped sales organization. Our order backlog at October 31, 2014 had grown by nearly $4 million to approximately $39 million, and we are pursuing many new opportunities with both existing and new customers."
