Net loss for the three month period ended June 30, 2010 was $3.3 million compared to a net loss of $1.0 million for the same period in fiscal 2009.

Interest income for the three month periods ended June 30, 2010 and 2009 was insignificant due to low prevailing interest rates in both periods.

Administrative costs for the three month period ended June 30, 2010 were $0.2 million compared to $0.1 million for the same period in fiscal 2009. The increase of $0.1 million is due to higher professional fees incurred in the second quarter of 2010 compared to the second quarter of 2009.

Capital tax expense for the three month periods ended June 30, 2010 and 2009 was insignificant due to the minimal taxable capital of the Company.
