"Combined with continued strength in the sale of our core glove line, we have been able to cushion any impact by the downturn in the construction & DIY markets, which now accounts for approximately 30% of our sales, while maintaining a healthy growth rate."

In addition to continued net sales growth, the company plans to achieve positive cash flow and profitability in 2008.

Mr. Jaeger concluded, "We expect to see significant sales growth in our domestic U.S. apparel line, leveraging the early traction we experienced in 2007; as well as growth in our international presence, where we are expanding both our glove and apparel sales. We are also penetrating new retail chains and introducing several new glove styles, including a highly anticipated cut-resistant glove for the industrial market."
