ABMC Chief Executive Officer Stan Cipkowski stated,"In the third quarter, we continued to see improvement in national account (workplace) and contract manufacturing sales, as well as improvement in sales to international markets. However, government contract sales continued to decline. We remain hopeful that our investment in sales and marketing earlier this year will have a positive impact on future sales."
Cipkowski continued, "Contributing to the loss in the third quarter was increased general and administrative expense related to legal and compliance costs, as well as increased share-based payment expense. The increase in share-based payment expense stemmed primarily from the issuance (and full expense recognition in the third quarter 2012) of warrants issued in connection with the extension of our Series A Debentures."
