Great outlook. Next generation HIGH MARGIN product sales rising rapidly.
Sales of our proprietary manufactured products continue to show improvements over the prior year. We believe a key strategy in overcoming market hesitancy to invest in capital equipment in a sluggish economy like we're in, is introduction of new attractive products. They became a catalyst to moving the inertia of demand in a positive direction.
To be a little more specific, demand for the new products have pushed sales of these manufactured proprietary products up by 12% quarter-over-quarter with January actually saw an 26% increase.
We expect the starting in the next quarter Q3 ending in March that we will see a continued a bending of the sales curve for them for that quarter and quarters beyond that ending up in sales improvements by summer time.
