Blumenthal: No, that's for our boxed brands.

C.A.: In 1996, how many hand-rolled cigars do you hope to produce?

Blumenthal: Including all the brands we make, I hope to produce 30 million. Of our three major brands--Hoyo, Punch and Bances, I hope we produce 22 million.

C.A.: What other cigars brands do you produce?

Blumenthal: The J.R. Ultimate and El Rey del Mundo, among others.

C.A.: Can you tell us the approximate volume of those brands in 1995?

Blumenthal: The J.R. Ultimate runs a couple of million.

C.A.: What's the total number of handmade cigars you expect to make in 1995?

Blumenthal: We hope to make 26 million. That doesn't include the machine-made cigars.
