The Company had financing lease and bank debt principal reduction for the nine-month period ended February 29, 2020, of $4,038,357. Sales price increases on certain pallet lines along with improvements in production costs were attributable to the increased earnings in the current quarter. We will be adding one new machine to replace an older machine during the fourth quarter which will increase our pallet production. We are striving to maintain our momentum during the fourth quarter but are uncertain as to the economic impact evolving from the COVID-19 virus. We anticipate some decrease in our production rates because of the impact to our workforce from some employees electing to stay home and declines in recruitment. We believe that the Company will have a solid quarter for sales and earnings despite the hardships created by the COVID-19.”
