“The company's results for the second quarter and first six months of 2004 illustrate the momentum that we have achieved. Our results show rising revenues and improved margins, which produced the increased operating income and bottom line performance,” said John Aglialoro, Cybex chairman and CEO. “In addition, we continue to improve the balance sheet as bank debt reduction is being aggressively addressed. The recent refinancing, which provides availability at lower interest costs, will further aid Cybex as we focus on enhancing growth prospects.”
