TWST: Overall, then, what is your growth strategy and focus?

Mr. Strimling: We believe we have a very strong backbone in our capability to get the e-mail to the inbox, but many customers that are in the e-mail space look for a broader suite of services than a pure delivery platform. We want to broaden our services to meet their needs. Many of our customers are looking for front-end solutions and analytics that we don't yet provide. We think we can add those capabilities and broaden the offering we provide customers that will both allow us to attract a new class of customers and then also provide value-added services for customers we already have.

We think we can do that in two ways. Some of these capabilities we build internally, but we also see some real opportunities for acquisition. In February of this year, we raised capital and uplisted the company to Nasdaq. One of the primary drivers for doing this was to strengthen our position to pursue acquisition opportunities, and we believe these acquisitions can be accretive in three ways. One, they can help us strategically by bolting on these services that customers are looking for. We think it can be accretive operationally because we have this very low cost structure and this very cost-effective high-tech service team, which does a good job of serving customers, that we can leverage and bolt other businesses on to. And then, we think it's accretive financially because we think we trade at a discount because we're small. And just as we grow scale, we should see multiple executions well.

TWST: Are you focusing primarily on growth in the United States, or is it worldwide?
