The company, which is traded on NASDAQ, reported results for the second quarter of fiscal 2002, which ended Nov. 30. Net earnings were $1.3 million compared to $5.2 million for the same quarter last year. Earnings per diluted share were $.10, compared to $.34 in the prior year comparable quarter. Revenues were $115.5 million vs. $132 million last year.

The company recorded sales of $220.2 million in the six months vs. $253.1 million in the prior year.
