Diluted shares outstanding were 8.0 million for the year, unchanged from the prior year.
We are pleased that sales finished the year up 3% in a challenging economic environment. Sales growth reflected solid demand for our consumable product offering throughout the year. In addition, we continued to experience increased demand for diagnostic products following strong growth in 2010.
During the quarter, we remained focused on executing our strategy for growth. We successfully launched a new line of disposable prophylaxis angles and our recent introduction of the Encompass digital panoramic system continued to gain traction in the market. In addition, we completed the consolidation of certain administrative functions and light manufacturing into our Algonquin facility.
As previously announced, in addition to the quarterly cash dividend of $0.04 per share, the Company issued a special cash dividend of $1.00 per share in the fourth quarter of 2011. Our strong balance sheet and cash flows enabled us to pay this dividend to our shareholders while still preserving significant capacity to invest in strategic growth opportunities as we ended the year with a modest net cash balance.
We believe that our organization continued to strengthen throughout the year. We successfully launched new products across our consumable and diagnostic product lines. We improved operating efficiency across the business through production automation and the consolidation of various administrative functions. We also remained focused on enhancing relationships with our distribution partners as well as the end users of our products. Although we are mindful of the impact a weak economy has on the overall demand for dental services, we continue to believe that the execution of our strategy will position the Company for future growth and success.
