Revenue: Total revenue increased from $53.9 million to $65.2 million, or 20.9%, for the twelve months ended December 31, 2011, compared to the same period ended December 31, 2010.

Gross Margins: The overall gross margin percentage decreased to 53.3% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2011, from 54.1% for the same period ended December 31, 2010.

Net Income: Net income for the twelve months of 2011 increased 40.0% to $9.8 million, when compared to net income of $7.0 million for the same period in 2010.
