All this was accomplished while holding our selling and general administrative expenses constant.”Mr. Long continued, “All financial metrics and operational metrics hit positive record levels this quarter. Achieving profitability is a major milestone and we believe we are now in a high growth phase. I am pleased to report that as of the date of this press release, we have already processed more transactions in the first 45 days of the current quarter than we accomplished in the record-setting third quarter.
