During the past four quarters, we have generated revenues of nearly $25 million, and produced EBITDA of nearly $3 million over that time period. While I am pleased with these results, we are constantly looking for areas for future growth and planning so that growth can be achieved in an efficient manner that produces a positive return for our shareholders.
