Revenues from the Company's Media Services operations, which include Subscription Fulfillment Services operations conducted by the Company's Palm Coast Data subsidiary (including its FulCircle Media business acquired December 31, 2012) and Newsstand Distribution and Product and Packaging Services and other operations conducted by its Kable Media Services subsidiary, increased from $21,266,000 and $40,854,000 for the second quarter and first six months of 2013 to $21,555,000 and $41,833,000 for the same periods in 2014.  The increase in revenues for both periods was due to the addition of FulCircle, whose revenues in the second quarter and first six months of 2014 were $1,862,000 and $3,221,000. Media Services' operating expenses were $17,791,000 and $35,519,000 (82.5% and 84.9% of related revenues) for the second quarter and first six months of 2014 compared to $17,040,000 and $33,407,000 (80.1% and 81.8% of related revenues) for the same periods of 2013 primarily due to expenses associated with FulCircle.
