Coast Distribution System Inc. reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

Operating loss was $956,000 against $1,169,000 for the same period a year ago. Loss before income taxes was $1,126,000 against $1,358,000 for the same period a year ago.
Coast Distribution System Inc. Enters into Distributor Agreement with Purple Line
May 14 14
Coast Distribution System Inc. announced it has entered into an agreement to become the exclusive distributor of Purple Line products to towable RV enthusiasts throughout North America. The relationship means that RV dealers in North America will have immediate access to Purple Line's Trailer Mover motor systems and trailer upgrade products. In addition, Coast will join with Purple Line to develop marketing and training programs for its dealers. Purple Line's array of Trailer Movers equip a conventional trailer with remote-controlled motors that more easily move the trailer for hitching, parking and leveling, without the aid of a tow vehicle. With the simple touch of the buttons on the wireless remote control unit, the operator can easily maneuver the trailer while walking around it to check clearances and position. Dealers can order Purple Line products from Coast Distribution effectively immediately.
