    Bryan McCaw, President & CEO stated, "Our first quarter marks our third
consecutive profitable quarter and is a direct result of the restructuring we
undertook last year. Our quarterly expenses are 20% lower than they were for
the corresponding quarter a year ago while our recurring revenue is up by the
same amount. In the first quarter our recurring revenue was $369,426 which
covered almost 58% of our costs. Recurring revenue is 20% higher than it was
for the first quarter one year ago."
    Mr. McCaw continued, "Since our restructuring in the second quarter of
last year our revenue has steadily increased quarter over quarter.
Correspondingly, our costs are far lower than they were a year ago. Going
forward, we expect growing revenue contributions from new product sales and
increasing recurring revenue without any significant increase to our current
cost base."
