Operating income increased 115% to $887,000 versus $412,000 for the first quarter of 1993.

Evans Systems Chief Executive Officer J.L. Evans, Sr., stated: "ESI has reported its largest revenue quarter in the company's 26-year history. We are seeing a full benefits of increased volumes from the Kincer acquisition and the commitment of ESI's management for continued growth. With the addition of the retail outlets from the Pruett-Koonce acquisition adding to our volumes in the second quarter, ESI is poised to exceed $150,000,000 in revenues this year."

Chem-Way's revenues were $5,396,000 in 1994 compared to $3,288,000 in 1993; a 64.1% increase primarily attributable to the addition of new customers and expanded product line. Continual competitive pressures on R-12 resulted in a decrease in gross profit margins to 7.8% compared to 12.7% in 1993. Operating income decreased to $206,000 compared to $247,000 in 1993.

With the introduction of the hydrocarbon packaging facility late in the second quarter, Chem-Way expects to add additional products and customers from its continued efforts to expand its production line and brand acceptance.
