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."
