We are extremely pleased to have achieved a record sales volume and solid earnings even after we absorbed the adverse impact of these tragic events."

Michael Sumsky, Diamond Triumph's President and Chief Financial Officer added, "The Company generated strong profits and built $6.6 (m) in cash reserves during a year in which we continued our national expansion and made significant investments in our MIS infrastructure.
