“Total operating expenses for the quarter, excluding sales and marketing, declined from 31.9 percent in 2013 to 24.0 percent in 2014,” said Allen Davis, COO. “Primarily, this was due to an increased awareness of expense management. Cost of goods sold increased to $2.9 million or 20.5 percent of sales compared to $1.2 million or 28.9 percent of sales. This was largely a result of optimizing pricing with our key vendors and change in product mix.”

CFO Jack Eldridge added, “We experienced a 253 percent increase in sales over the corresponding quarter in 2013, solidly within the previously announced guidance of $13 to 15 million we issued for the quarter. Gross margins, operating margins and net profit margins all continue to improve. We expect our net operating margins and our net profit margins to continue to increase with logistical improvements and economies of scale. We believe during the next 12 to 18 months our operating margins will improve to 12 to 15 percent and our net margins will increase to 7 to 9 percent as we continue to benefit from overall efficiencies and lower COGS.

"Several non-recurring costs will be reduced as we move into the second half of the year. We anticipate solid cash flow each quarter. ForeverGreen currently has enough tangible assets to cover its current liabilities and has improved its financial health substantially over the last year. We have achieved several of our 2014 goals already, including the introduction of a new product, SolarStrips. We remain on track to meet or exceed our previously announced revenue guidance of $41 to 50 million, anticipating net margins of 4 to 7 percent. We will continue to develop ForeverGreen into one of the largest and most diversified global companies in our industry.”
