TWST: What significant competitive advantages do you believe you have?

Mr. Interiano: Ultimately, we have our aimed optics platform, which is the most efficient and cost-effective way of delivering light. And that is really used for our outdoor products, street lighting and area lighting, parking lot lighting, etc. Our strength and our efficiency is having the ability to launch the latest products into the marketplace in a very rapid way versus the larger companies. We have designed a process to make us quick in design, production and launch, so it's an advantage. And secondly we offer the total solution. So we have the ability to engage a customer and deliver the products that the customer would need.

If you look at lighting, lighting exists on the exterior and the interior of a building. Most of our customers on the commercial side when they are looking for lighting efficiencies to reduce their operating cost, they look at the entire building. They are not just looking for the best manufacturer of one product. They are looking for a solution to improve their operating cost in their entire building. So we refocused our strategy for that and went after key customers in the past 60 days and have landed some good contracts that we will start shipping out at the end of the year. So the strategy seems to be working, and we will continue to build up on that over the next year.

TWST: Obama recently announced plans to reduce carbon emissions and fund clean technology. How much do you expect those measures to benefit Evolucia?

Mr. Interiano: Benefit to our company in terms of, not only in the U.S., but also around the world, everybody is pursuing reduction in operational costs. Whether he is the commercial owner of a building or the homeowner, reducing cost of electricity is becoming more and more of an awareness point. Finding technologies that will reduce that cost is where the momentum is around the world. Lighting has been proven to be one of the easiest ways to reduce your electricity cost at work or at home.

TWST: What are some of the key strengths you believe you have among the members of your core management team, including yourself?
