There has been some discussion among shareholders about our mention in the last quarterly conference call of a possible future $30 million funding. I wish to clarify that we have no specific plans at this time for any sort of additional funding. That number surfaced in response to a theoretical question about potential acquisitions that would grow the company's business. We believe there are some outstanding acquisition possibilities available to us. In the event that we have an opportunity to make a valuable acquisition that would immediately add value for our shareholders, it is conceivable that some sort of funding would be required. But there is nothing specifically planned at this point and, in any case, we have no intention of taking any action that would be inappropriately dilutive or harmful in any way to our shareholders.
