We negotiated an incentive-based land acquisition in Wisconsin to acquire land and announced our planned construction of a more than $12 million (plus) state of the art ammunition and brass case manufacturing plant, which we estimate will triple our manufacturing output. We have also projected our new plant will provide operational efficiencies and decrease operational costs by approximately $1 million.
