The sales gains reflect the addition of new specialty retail brands and new programs within key customer accounts.
These gains were partially offset by declines in the sales to mass merchandise and licensing customers.

Our sales strength is with customers who demand superior quality, service, and product value," noted Mr. Schnell.
