The Company anticipates the following revenue for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2017:

“I am extremely pleased by our preliminary revenue numbers for fiscal 2017, which are the highest in company history,” stated Hylton Karon President and CEO of iFabric. “Whilst the record increase in apparel revenue in Q4 was anticipated as a result of new sleepwear programs launched earlier in the year, Intelligent Fabric revenues were lower than anticipated due to seasonal considerations as well as programs for new major customers that were expected to commence in Q4 but that will instead commence in our next quarter.  In terms of fiscal 2018, we are planning for continued solid sales growth, particularly in our Intelligent Fabrics Division.  I will provide additional information on our outlook for next year when we report final audited results for fiscal 2017 in December,” concluded Hylton Karon.
