From time to time, the Company may publish forward-looking
statements relating to such matters as anticipated financial
performance, business prospects, technological developments,
new products, research and development activities and similar
matters. The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of
1995 provides a safe harbor for forward-looking statements.

Net income for the three months ended March 31, 2016 is
not indicative of the results to be expected for the fiscal
year ending September 30, 2016 as quarterly earnings are
affected by the highly seasonal nature of the business and
weather conditions generally result in greater earnings
during the winter months. Past performance is not necessarily
a predictor of future results.

twelve months are as follows:
