We have maintained our focus on inventory quality while decreasing the overall levels by 10% per square foot. As a result, we continued to see higher product margins and a higher average selling price during the quarter. The Company's financial position remains strong as we ended the quarter with $65 million in cash, an improvement of $31 million year over year, and no interest-bearing debt."
