According to Vincent Wong, CEO of ACT360 Solutions, "2012 was a year
of growth for the Company as it executed its business plan to provide
student recruitment and marketing services to higher education
clients." 2012 business highlights include: 


 
--  31% year-over-year revenue growth resulting from 107% organic growth in
    TestDEN Higher Education sales;
 
--  Net profit of $23,702 on revenue of $715,575 versus a loss of $55,495 on
    sales of $545,620 in 2011;
 
--  Completion of the Company's education marketing technology platform to
    support a larger volume of clients;
 
--  The appointment of Messrs. Howard Louie, Eric Helgeland, and Jeff Cruz
    to the Company's CEO Advisory Board in order to
 provide the Company with
    strategic advice on international education, digital marketing, mergers
    and acquisitions, and capital markets;
 
--  Completion of a private placement of 4,000,000 units of the Company for
    gross proceeds of $200,000.

 
For the 12 months ended September 30, 2012, the Company's revenue
increased by 31% to $715,575 compared to revenue of $545,620 for the
previous year. 
TestDEN Higher Education revenues, derived from the Company's
proprietary language training products and international student
marketing service, grew 107% in 2012 compared to the prior year.
During the first quarter of 2012, the Company re-designed its
education marketing technology platform to support higher volumes of
inquiries and a greater number of university clients. Revenue growth
was primarily achieved by the addition of new post-secondary
education clients purchasing the Company's student recruitment
service. The Company delivered a higher volume of inquiries by
significantly increasing the number of Internet users of the
Company's flagship website at www.testden.com. 
Custom development revenue decreased by 56% as the Company no longer
pursued new clients for custom software development. All revenue in
this category was from the maintenance of existing client projects. 
On a consolidated basis for the 12 months ended September 30, 2012,
the Company had a net profit of $23,702 on sales of $715,575 compared
to a loss of $55,495 on sales of $545,620 during the previous year.  
On a consolidated basis, expenses were $691,881 in 2012 compared to
$601,261 in 2011, an increase of 15%. Selling, office, and general
expenses were higher as the Company allocated greater resources
towards advertising and business development activities to support
TestDEN Higher Education revenue.
