  • Gross profit for the year ended December 31, 2015 was $1.08 million, compared to gross profit of $0.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2014. The 17% increase is primarily due to increased sales and improvement of the gross profit percentage related to product mix. 

  • For the years ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, operating expenses totaled $12.1 million and $7.2 million respectively, representing a year to year increase of $4.8 million.
