Mr. Gonnella continued, "Our marketing initiative, focused on performance vehicle and motorcycle verticals, is working. In Q-2, 2015, our year over year sales continued to improve.

Results for Three Months Ended June 30, 2015:

For the three months ended June 30, 2015, the Company reported revenue of $104 thousand, an increase of 11.9% compared to $93 thousand for the three months ended June 30, 2014. The increase in revenue was, primarily due to spring marketing campaign and new distribution.

Gross profit increased by 318% to $43 thousand for the three months ended June 30, 2015 compared to $10 thousand for the three months ended June 30, 2014 as a result of the increase in sales offset by decreased costs of sales driven by manufacturing process improvements, improved labor utilization and improved design and operating procedure related to the release of Pulstar with PlasmaCore. The gross profit margin was 40.9% for the three months ended June 30, 2015, which is higher than that of 10.8% for the three months ended June 30, 2014, due primarily to the favorable impact of the above factors on the period ended June 30, 2015.

Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased by 21.6% from $1,069 thousand for the three months ended June 30, 2014 to $838 thousand for the three months ended June 30, 2015. The decrease is primarily as a result of additional expense in 2014 due to re-pricing and accelerated vesting of outstanding stock options to purchase approximately 676,000 shares of our common stock previously granted to officers, directors, employees and consultants, which resulted in additional stock-based compensation of approximately $32,000, as well as approximately $293,000 associated with accelerating the unvested stock-based awards granted prior to that date.

As of June 30, 2015, we had cash and cash equivalents on hand of $1,420 thousand and working capital of $1,385 thousand. We expect this amount to be sufficient to meet our operating and capital requirements until late 2015, and intent to use these funds for general corporate purposes, including salaries, development and commercial activity, and for working capital. Management's plans are to secure additional funding to cover working capital needs until positive cash flow from operations occurs, which is anticipated to commence in early 2016.
