Having a licensed caregiver within the state of our corporate headquarters, will now allow us to expand the operations of our first Patient Certification Center scheduled to open this month. Further, we have targeted at least two additional centers for acquisition presently under negotiation that service several thousand patients and process at least 300 new prescriptions each month which we believe will meaningfully increase our revenue streams by being established businesses.
