This is about where we were at the end of the first quarter, so we haven’t gained and are behind last year at about the same percentage.
Sales in April 2016 were 39 (SF-24, Con-10, Dup-2 & Lot-3) down 5% from April 2015 at 41 (SF- 21, Con-15, Dup-1 & Lot-4). The last 12 months sales (May 1, 2015 to April 30, 2016) were 381 (SF-213, Con-116, Dup-32, Lot-20) equal to the previous 12 months (May 1, 2014 to April 30, 2015) at 381 (SF-217, Con-110, Dup-29 & Lot-25).

Inventory for the previous four months were 343, 342,328 and 309.
