  • Continued our investment in new products;
  • Won four new customers for our subscription based, Connector technology;
  • Increased EBITDA by more than 9%, cash flow from operations improved by a multiple of 10 times;
  • Secured a multi-million dollar, long term debt facility with reduced borrowing rates and principal repayments for two years;
  • Repurchased 16% of our outstanding shares in June 2013 (unregistered restricted shares held by largest shareholder); and
  • Aggressively pursued other alternatives for enhancing shareholder value while improving profitability.
