Management bases its estimates on historical experience and various other hypotheses that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

We have received positive feedback on the improvements and improvements made to the design of the ultra low temperature freezer. We also continue to work on the refrigerated trailer, or “reefer”.
