Management considers the current quarter’s financial results acceptable, in light of the continued impact that the COVID-19 pandemic continues to have on the worldwide economy. Management is encouraged about increased interest in product for Europe and the Far East as those markets appear to be restarting. Management is also exploring new opportunities that appear caused by a desire to “buy North American.”
Sales are higher in the second quarter over the first quarter of this fiscal year, as customer demand cautiously resumes in the wake of the global impact of COVID-19.
