Financial Results Highlights and Recent Company Developments:
• Revenue rose to $27.3 million -- representing the highest quarterly revenue in Company's history and growth of 6.62% over last year's fiscal first quarter
• Margins improvement primarily due to completion of sales rebate on Tyvek (which impacted prior-year results) and lack of Mexican restructuring costs (also affecting last year)
• Operating Profit increased 45.6% in 1Q09 from 1Q08
• International Sales Growth Continues
• Brazil Acquisition closed in May -- operations to be included in fiscal second quarter
• New Australian Distributor Agreement -- sales in Q1 were $424,000

• First quarter results were impacted by approximately $(0.03) per share resulting from a proxy dispute
