    Operating Results
    Revenues of $932,276 for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 were $588,153
or 171% higher than the revenues recorded for the fourth quarter of the prior
year, of $344,123. Revenues for the year ended June 30, 2007 of $2,062,742
were $768,673 or 59% higher than the revenues recorded for the prior year, of
$1,294,069. Overall, the Company achieved more license unit sales resulting in
higher license revenues, higher maintenance revenues from a larger customer
install base and higher training and support services revenues.
    Notwithstanding the significant increase in revenues during fiscal 2007,
the level of revenues were not as high as expected as (i) the sales cycle was
longer than originally planned, particularly on larger transactions, and (ii)
we experienced certain delays in training implementations in the fourth
quarter due to decisions by our customers to defer their previously scheduled
training dates.
    The Company's sales bookings have increased consistently quarter over
quarter in fiscal 2007, and the Company's deferred revenue levels increased
from $413,364 as at June 30, 2006 to $651,446 as at June 30, 2007. The
Company's sales invoicing activity in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 had a
value to the Company of US$888,651 compared with US$353,293 for the fourth
quarter of fiscal 2006. The Company's sales invoicing activity in the prior
three quarters of fiscal 2007 were US$530,672, US$325,480 and US$202,893,
    Overall operating expenses (which include non-cash expenses of
amortization and stock compensation expense) increased by $314,407 or by 23%,
to $1,659,938 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 from $1,345,531 in the
fourth quarter of fiscal 2006, due primarily to increases in sales and
marketing and services expenses. Overall operating expenses for fiscal 2007
increased by $1,382,010 or by 27% to $6,595,317 from $5,213,307 in fiscal
    On a quarterly basis, in fiscal 2007, expenses rose from approximately
$1.38 million in the first quarter to approximately $1.69 million,
$1.87 million, and $1.66 million in the second, third and fourth quarters,
    On a quarterly basis in fiscal 2007, cash operating expenses, excluding
non-cash expenses of amortization and stock compensation, rose from
approximately $1.26 million in the first quarter to approximately
$1.53 million, $1.7 million, and $1.54 million in the second, third and fourth
quarters, respectively.
    The Company incurred a net loss for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 of
$718,300 or a loss of $0.01 per common share, compared to a net loss of
$874,286 or $0.02 per common share in the fourth quarter of the prior year. On
a year to date basis, the Company incurred a net loss in fiscal 2007 of
$4,472,506 or a loss of $0.07 per common share, compared to a net loss of
$3,746,563 or $0.07 per common share in fiscal 2006.
    The Company closed an equity private placement financing raising gross
proceeds of $5 million on September 26, 2006. The Company had cash of
$1,874,460 as at June 30, 2007 compared to $811,823 as at June 30, 2006 for a
net increase of $1,062,637. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007, there
was a decrease of net cash of $298,000. The net increase of cash during the
year was due primarily to the Company's financing activities, net of its use
of cash in its operating activities of $3,714,546 for the year.

    As previously disclosed, over the past two fiscal years, management has
taken numerous steps to increase sales and in connection therewith has also
built a scaleable infrastructure that would prepare the Company for growth as
a pre-eminent service-focused organization at the forefront of the industry
from the perspective of technology, compliance, security and communication.
These actions led to an increase in expenses. The Company's gross cash
expenses were highest during the third quarter of fiscal 2007 amounting to
approximately $1.7 million, and were $1.54 million during the fourth quarter
of fiscal 2007. Management expects its gross cash expenses run rate to be
approximately $1.6 million and $1.7 million in the first and second quarters
of fiscal 2008, respectively.
    Notwithstanding the significant increase in sales in fiscal 2007, the
Company's sales have not yet achieved sufficient levels to cover its operating
expenditures. Nonetheless, we remain confident that (i) the significant and
growing marketing efforts, along with an experienced direct sales force, (ii)
the growing sales funnel of the Company and its distribution channel partners
(including that management expects that the size of the Company's direct sales
force funnel of qualified sales opportunities will double over the next three
months, and the funnel of corporate initiatives is currently significantly
greater than the direct sales force funnel), (iii) the successful release of
MedcomSoft Record 2006 and the expected release shortly of MedcomSoft Record
UE, (iv) the continued successful deployment of our product to IPN physicians
and the establishment of other similar and significant relationships, and (v)
the development of a significant number of physician reference sites, will
lead to a significant increase in revenues over the next six months and
beyond. As a result, management is hopeful that the Company's increasing sales
will lead to positive cash flow for the second quarter of fiscal 2008.
