Novex Systems International, Inc. (OTCBB:HARD) announced is 1st quarter results for the period ending August 31, 2001.

Novex CEO, Daniel Dowe stated "much of our business development plans are ahead of us and with the recent hiring of a new Vice President of Sales we are able to execute much faster. We just surpassed the $75,000 mark of sales to Home Depot since late July and we are anticipating much higher sales growth in the 2nd quarter. If we can secure additional Home Depot stores at the rate we have been going, we should be able to achieve profitability in the 2nd quarter. Our plans to acquire additional companies to expand our product line are progressing. We are looking at opportunities where we can merge the acquired business into our Clifton, New Jersey operating facility to generate profits sooner."
When asked about Novex's low stock price, Mr. Dowe stated that "we are very cognizant of our low stock price. We do believe that our stock should trade at much higher levels especially when you compare us to other small publicly-held companies, but our focus still needs to be on achieving profitability and sustainable business growth which will ultimately create value for all shareholders. Anything else would be putting the cart before the horse."
