Dr. Steven Tsengas, Chairman and CEO, commented, "Our record 2013 third quarter results reflect solid progress and position us to achieve additional improvements across our business in the fourth quarter and into next year. Our long-term growth strategy includes double-digit increases in net revenue and net income as we continue to execute our plans in multiple sales channels and with ongoing attention to our operating margins. The net revenue increase for the most recent quarter was specifically due to solid performance in our base business and core product lines. Sales in three of our strategic channels -- grocery, mass retail and pet specialty -- all grew substantially compared to the same period last year. Our sales are also being complemented by higher international sales which were up over 42% from the same quarter a year ago." Dr. Tsengas added, "During the first nine months of 2013, we further strengthened our balance sheet through substantial reductions in long-term debt and a solid increase in stockholders' equity. As we look toward 2014, our performance is expected to be driven through growth in our base business and further expansion of core product lines including the launch of new innovative products that will be industry trendsetters." 2013 Third Quarter Results Net revenue increased $1,467,616 to $5,737,568 for the 2013 third quarter from the same period a year ago.
