Steven G. Mihaylo, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "While we are disappointed with the results, I believe we are still on track to achieve profitability by the end of 2013. I had expected sales to ramp up faster than they have, but for the most part we are operating as anticipated. I am particularly pleased with the fact that we have grown our Network Services backlog to $2M and I fully expect that number will continue to multiply. As we discussed previously, we are essentially in a startup mode and we are operating the Company on that premise. We have the benefit of having an excellent infrastructure including our web building software, which we are utilizing in our University Program. Our telecom products are world class, and we are working to improve our sales processes and infrastructure to increase productivity of our direct sales representatives. We are starting to sign up dealers in our dealer programs and I have high expectations of sales and recurring revenue being derived from that channel. We believe that the dealer program will work as a supplement to our direct sales channel. I am working with our sales management team to continue to improve our training and lead generation. The University Program continues to gain acceptance and we now have three universities teaching on our web builder, with five classes. We expect to have 30 schools and 60 classes on line by the end of 2013 and we also believe there are big opportunities with junior colleges, community colleges, vocational schools, trade schools and high schools, which we will start to address. I have very high expectations of our University Program increasing our brand recognition, leads and cross sell opportunities."

Mihaylo added, "I am very excited by what we are working on. We work on improving our products and services every day. We need to make a few changes to our mobile apps, but when we have that completed, I have expectations that we should be amongst the lowest cost providers in the market with excellent products and services. Our Engineering team continues to add enhancements to our mobile offering and we will enhance our marketing of the product in the summer. We believe this will be a substantial value to our customers and build additional sales. We continue to have very positive feedback from our telecom and web customers and I am convinced that our products and services will be what drive sales, profits and shareholder value. We are watching our expenses very carefully and running a lean and aggressive Company. Our team and I are fully aware of our need to increase shareholder value."
