EBITDA for the period was $364,815 compared to $339,319 a year ago with net income of $207,977 ($.05 per share) compared to $187,576 ($.04 per share) last year.For the six months ending September 30, 2000 sales revenue was up by 12 per cent to $7,396,316 compared to $6,621,135 for the same period last year. The company reported a year to date loss of $204,475 ($.04 per share) compared to net income of $34,812 ($.01 per share) last year.
