Administrative expenses decreased to $106,095, down from $111,900 for the same period of 2009. The administrative expenses are stabilized subsequent to the reorganization decisions of last year.

Corporate reorganization costs incurred in 2009 consist primarily of severance benefits paid to an employee and an officer. This expense is of a non-recurring nature.

The net loss for the second quarter of 2010 amounted to $34,452 or $0.001 per share, compared with a loss of $414,984 or $0.014 per share for the corresponding period of the previous year.

The reduction in the net loss is attributable to the impact of the measures taken by the Company's management to turn around the situation.
