Revenue: Net revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2013 totaled $3.02 million as compared to $1.82 million for the same period in 2012, a 66% increase. This increase was driven primarily by increases in international sales totaling $1.38 million and increases in domestic sales totaling $630 thousand, off-set by the elimination of 2012 Costco Wholesale sales of $813 thousand.

Operating Expenses: Operating Expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2013 totaled $1.30 million as compared to $1.43 million for the same period in 2012, a 9% decrease.
