Revenue for the second quarter reduced by 7.6% to $59.1 million compared with $64.0 million last year. Revenue for six months reduced by 10.3% to $98.5 million compared with $109.8 million last year. The high value of the Canadian dollar is the main reason for the lower revenue.
Net earnings for the second quarter decreased by 54.0% to $1.9 million or $0.07 per share compared with $4.1 million or $0.16 per share last year. Net earnings for six months decreased to $3.6 million or $0.14 per share compared with $5.7 million or $0.23 per share last year.
In spite of the negative trend of this quarter, management is committed to improving the areas of our operation that have caused our financial results to decline. There is no “quick fix” for some of these issues, but we will work to implement changes and improve our results in due course.
