Net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013 was $5.2 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, including expenses associated with the development of the Company's new e-commerce platform of $0.01 per diluted share, compared to net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 of $4.0 million, or $0.19 per diluted share.
