Richard Leeds, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "2014 is off to a solid start as we delivered improvements in both gross and operating margin and recorded positive adjusted operating income on a consolidated basis.  Our results were driven by our business-to-business operations as Industrial Products delivered outstanding performance with 22% revenue growth and strong double digit increases in operating income.  We also recorded solid performances from our technology operations in EMEA and our business-to-business technology operations in North America as we continue to work to broaden our offerings and strengthen our position as a single source value-added IT reseller.  While our consumer technology revenue performance remains weak, we continue to take a very disciplined approach to managing this business and are making progress on improving our bottom line."

"Across the company we are executing on a number of initiatives to drive operating efficiencies, strengthen our competitive position and improve profitability.  We are expanding our business-to-business operations and focused on returning our consumer business to profitability.  We continue to have a strong cash position and remain well-positioned to execute on our strategic plan," Leeds concluded.

At the end of the first quarter 2014, the Company had working capital of over $345 million, cash and cash equivalents of approximately $160 million, and availability under its credit facility of $114.9 million.  Short and long-term debt totaled approximately $4.7 million at March 31, 2014.
