I am pleased to report that we believe our company is making significant progress on all fronts and is well-positioned to grow our revenues and market share.
With five consecutive profitable quarters, we reported an increase in net income of 107% for the most recent quarter ended March 31, 2014. Revenue for the quarter was $1,206,567 representing a 26.5% increase over the first quarter of 2013, and income from operations rose by 25.8%.
As previously reported, we successfully restructured our debt position with a view to improving our cash flows and reducing our short-term indebtedness. Additionally, as of September 30, 2014, we had a tax loss carry forward of $7,250,000 which will be of benefit as we move forward.
On February 25, 2014, I demonstrated my unwavering commitment to the company by restructuring $2 million in debt and accrued interest, consolidating all notes previously issued to me and $385,846 in advances as of January 31, 2014, into a single note. The new consolidated note bears interest at the rate of 5% per annum, except that if the prime rate of interest as reported by the Wall Street Journal exceeds 5%, then the new note will bear interest at the prime rate reported by the Wall Street Journal. The prior notes bore interest at the rates of 10% and 5% while the advances were non-interest bearing. The new note is for a term of ten years from the date of issuance while the prior notes or advances were due on demand. In addition, I agreed to waive prior defaults under the terms of the prior notes and released the company from any future claims for defaults under the prior notes. Finally, the note is to be secured by a $2 million key man insurance policy that the company has been purchased and which will provide for the repayment of the principal amount of the note in the event of a tragedy.
For more information about, and a more detailed description of, the above matters, please refer to the Forms 8-K we filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 28, 2014 and April 28, 2014, which we believe demonstrate that TX Holdings' has a bright future. These filings may be easily accessed over the internet via our website at www.txholdings.com or via the SEC's Edgar database.
We believe our vendor relationships are solid. We provide very high quality products at the lowest possible cost due to these long-standing alliances. In addition to our vendor relationships, we believe we have forged many long-term relationships with our customers. Our salesmen visit every customer on a regular basis and maintain contact via e-mails and direct phone calls. We believe our customer service is superior in an industry that demands a high level of customer service.
In view of what we have accomplished over the last couple of years, I believe the company has a strong story to tell -- one we contend will be very attractive to the investment community and our shareholders.
In the coming months, I am planning to meet with members of the investment community in a series of road shows with a view to conveying our compelling story. In fact, we have exhibited success in the small market share we have infiltrated to date, of this large industry, leaving the company plenty of room for growth.
