Net earnings for the six months ended June 30, 2014 were $5.1 million, or $0.75 per share (diluted), versus earnings of $2.7 million, or $0.43 per share (diluted), in the first six months of 2013.
 
Michael Benstock, chief executive officer, commented: "We are very pleased to report record earnings per share (diluted) in the current quarter of $0.57. Second quarter results exceeded our expectations, and we continue to be impressed by the strong performance of HPI since the acquisition in July 2013. HPI contributed $17.6 million to second quarter net sales in our Uniforms and Related Products segment. 
 
“The balance of our Uniforms and Related Products segment contributed an increase in net sales of $4.2 million, or 14.3%. Our Uniforms and Related Products segment, including HPI, had shipments of significant new programs with both a transportation customer and a large supermarket customer, which combined accounted for over $7 million of our increase in net sales.
 
"Obviously, several factors came together and were well aligned at the same time in order for us to deliver stellar results of this magnitude. While this level of earnings is not to be expected each quarter, our overall backlog in the Uniforms and Related Products segment remains very strong and we expect to continue to report strong earnings in this segment as we move forward.
 
"Our Remote Staffing Solutions segment continues to report meaningful growth in net sales as the market response has been very favorable to our service offerings and we believe there is room for us to continue to grow this business substantially.
 
"Our financial position remains very strong and coupled with an improving market position, we believe we can meet the demands of significant growth opportunities that lie ahead in all of our business segments."
