“While we continue to generate savings from tight measures in expense control across the board and reduced cash usage, which was down by approximately $400,000 in the first nine months of 2010 as compared to the same period in 2009, it is imperative for us to win and close new and significant opportunities in federal and commercial segments, to grow our business and improve our cash position,” commented Mr. Khoa Nguyen, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

The Company remains committed to the development and deployment of advanced technologies in the enablement of secure real-time collaboration functions across the enterprise and plans to announce new product capabilities over the next two quarters to the benefit of both Federal and commercial clients.”
