  • With $23 million of Whitney-related revenue included, sales rose year over year 54.5% to $87.0 million from $56.3 million.
  • Without Whitney, sales increased 13.3% to $63.8 million from about $56.3 million in the first quarter of 2010.
  • Net loss was $200,000 compared with net income of $1.5 million.
