We will complete this task in concert with improvements being made to our balance sheet, which will be public record by Q2."

He further states, "We are extremely pleased with the improvements we are making to our balance sheet. The two areas that will see improvements over the next two quarters will be firstly our cash position, as we are ramping up our direct marketing efforts to increase sales of our credit card terminals, and will be adding marketable securities/notes receivable to the current asset base. Secondly, our objective is to build value through our non-current assets, such as property, patents, equipment, and licenses. The up-list to the NYSE Alternext will follow after the changes to the Board are made, and the aforementioned improvements recorded by our auditors."
