The declined net income was attributed to higher co-op, slotting fees, salespromotions and advertising expenditures during the quarter. The increasedrevenues was attributed to higher sales in Walgreens, Rite Aid, Target and CVS,which partially offset declined sales in GNC. In fact, chain stores accountedfor 92 percent of total sales. The company's newest product acquisition,Acutrim, produced mixed results, as it helped boost total revenues but is lowermargin and costs more to sell.
