This has been achieved while at the same time reducing our gross loss from operations by nearly 30% and only slightly increasing the net loss from operations, caused by the necessary expansion in expectation of higher production volume. We expect to significantly improve our performance in the third and fourth quarter 2013 and report positive cash flow from operating activities. While 2012 has been our year to assure the company's survival, the focus for 2013 will be on the aggressive expansion of our business model of diversification and on a more economical approach to financing the company's expansion in support of our share price."
