Kevin Frija, President and CEO, indicated the Company's 2010 3rd Quarter Revenues have improved $1,343,337 or 93.48% from Revenues in the 3rd Quarter of 2009, and Net Income decreased $26,108 or 61% from the same period last year. The Company's revenues for the nine months ended September 30th 2010 were $7,520,223 -- a 67.7% increase over the $4,484,729 generated for the same period last year. 

Revenue for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2010, increased as a result of stronger demand for the company's electronic cigarette products, which saw the company grow its distribution capacity and reach through both internal sales and through third party distributors. With these new relationships, the company is in a position to serve over 200,000 convenience stores, gas stations and tobacco shops.

Net income decreased as sales to brick and mortar businesses and sales through third party distributors are lower margin sales than products sold direct to the consumer over the company's website and the company spent approximately $1.4 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2010, an increase of $1.1 million over the same period last year, on marketing and branding activities, including advertising, public relations and other initiatives designed to elevate the company's public profile and to increase the visibility of the Company's electronic cigarette brands.
