"We are pleased that the commercial acceptance for our products continues to be at an all-time high as indicated by our 60% year over year revenue growth. The strong U.S. Dollar combined with geographic sales mix led to some margin compression during the quarter. Our product division intends to implement measures in Q4 to enhance gross margins as we enter our busiest season. We look forward to continued expansion of our product division as the negative pressure on refined sugar and artificial sweeteners continue to accelerate," commented Andrew Reid, CEO of Xylitol Canada.

The Company also wishes to thank Frank Iadipaolo for his services as interim CFO during the 2nd and 3rd quarters of 2014. Mr. Iadipaolo was instrumental in setting up a robust internal control system, daily and weekly divisional reporting, and he architected an across the board costing and margin analysis program. Mr. Iadipaolo's structural initiatives under a tight timeline are applauded. During this transition, the Company would like to welcome Kyle Appleby back to Xylitol Canada as CFO.
