Quoting Management: Roderick R. Baty, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer commented, “The weak economic conditions we experienced in 2012 continued to negatively impact the demand for our products in the first quarter. Although our results for the first quarter of 2013 fell short of the results for the same period in 2012, revenues and net income from normal operations did exceed our original 2013 forecasts. Until the economic outlook in Europe improves, we will continue to build upon our operational improvements at Whirlaway and company-wide Level 3 cost control initiatives. This focus has allowed us to achieve margin improvement even during a period of suppressed revenue levels.”
