Commenting on the fourth quarter results, Michael D.

Revenue for the quarter ended December 31, 2010, increased 15% to $15.9 million, compared to $13.8 million for the same period in 2009. Net income for the fourth quarter was $1.6 million or $0.24 basic and $0.23 diluted earnings per share, compared with net income of $2.2 million or $0.34 basic and $0.33 diluted earnings per share, in the prior year period.

In closing, Patrick E.

To provide visibility related to the anticipated return on these investments, today we are announcing earnings guidance of $1.65 per dilutive share for the year ending December 31, 2011.”
