Bill Gay, chairman and chief executive officer, commented, "Our fiscal 2013 second quarter net sales growth of $2.7 million, or 5%, came from branded domestic and international sales as well as fiscal 2012 acquisitions. The second fiscal quarter is historically our strongest quarter although January and February were stronger comparatively than March. We continue to be optimistic about our larger health and natural food store customers and the industry in general. Net income and EBITDA expanded as a number of internal management initiatives took effect. Our management team continues to focus on implementation of efficiency controls in all areas of manufacturing and particularly in raw material sourcing. Continued operational enhancements to our business are dependent upon making numerous and ongoing incremental improvements, generally over six to twelve month time frames, which help offset cost increases from less controllable expenses arising from government regulations, energy, legal, taxes and labor." Mr. Gay stated, "Over the coming months, we will continue to pursue our long-term strategy of doing small to medium accretive acquisitions to sustain growth in a mature but healthy market. Our most recent efforts have been focused on consolidating, integrating and rationalizing the businesses we have acquired over the last several years. Despite the overall weak economic market, we have managed to effectively maintain or increase our product presence. New product development and existing product repositioning is ongoing and critical. We have a strong sales and marketing organization. We continue to improve long-term shareholder value by repurchasing stock in the open market at current multiples. We are appreciative to all of the stakeholders who continue to support our great business."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure) is defined in our debt covenants and performance measures as earnings before net interest and other expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization. We believe that EBITDA provides useful additional information to analysts, creditors, investment bankers and management regarding operating performance and debt covenant compliance. EBITDA has some inherent limitations in measuring operating performance due to the exclusion of certain financial elements such as depreciation and amortization and is not necessarily comparable to other similarly-titled captions of other companies due to potential inconsistencies in the method of calculation. Furthermore, EBITDA is not intended to be an alternative to net income in determining our operating performance in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.
