I would like to start by sincerely thanking all of you for your hard work and continued commitment to the Company. As you are aware, we had a successful Q1 and the outlook on Q2 is positive as well. It goes without saying that our success is dependent upon our employees, so congratulations and thank you.
While I am very pleased with our current performance, it is my position and that of our Board of Directors that we must continue to aggressively manage our expenses and grow our revenue in order to adhere to the terms of our bank agreement. As a result, I have made what I know will be an unpopular decision and that is to postpone giving merit increases this year. Although we budgeted for the increases to be granted to eligible employees in July, this difficult decision is being made because I need to ensure that our success is sustained and that we are properly positioned financially before increasing our fixed costs.
I value your contributions and I know this news is not what you wanted to hear. In an effort to demonstrate my appreciation for your efforts, I am granting all eligible employees an additional 3 days of PTO days to use, with management approval, between July 1 and September 30, 2012.
Please accept this token of my appreciation. Information on how to track the additional PTO days will be distributed from HR or your business office shortly.
