During the CC, a lot of time was spent explaining that JAKK incurred substantial non-recurring air freight charges in order to get some product to the domestic market quickly.

in addition to what MrT pointed out about the air freight charges, their were charges due to the closing of the Flying Color distribution and manufacturing plant in Michigan (these operations are in Washington state) also in conjunction with the move the company decided to sell-off the remaining inventory in Michigan at cost to avoid expensive costs in shipping them to the West Coast.

the company feels that going forward margins will stay in the 41-42% range. will that be the case? hope so.
