SAN DIEGO, Aug. 18, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- Execute Sports, Inc. (OTCBB:EXCS) reported today financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2006. Todd Pitcher, President, commented that, "We are pleased to see the strengthening of our gross margins on a quarter over quarter, and year over year basis, increasing by approximately 50%. Our sales results in the water sports line were slightly lower for the period due primarily to changes in shipping and ordering charges from a key customer and don't reflect a decrease in sales quantities, and we expect to see vest, wetsuit and rash guard sales over the next season accelerate as we move from test orders to more material orders from several new key accounts that we gained this past season."
