CEO Glen Dall commented, “I am pleased with our results this quarter and
through the first nine months of 2013. The investments we made in sales and
technology are beginning to pay out, as can be seen with our 40% growth in
year-to-date sales as compared to 2012, and the improvement in gross margin
accompanying those higher sales. We believe the results of the Company’s
tender offer, while resulting in the tender of fewer shares than we had
anticipated, demonstrate that our shareholders support the Company and share
our optimism for about the future. Our reconstituted board is supportive of
our initiatives and providing valuable leadership as we move into the next
phase of our Company’s transformation.”

Mr. Dall continued, “Our relationships with News America and Valassis continue
to be productive. Fourth quarter bookings are approximately $5.8 million with
three weeks left to sell. We continue to maintain sales focus to help our
Company be profitable in the fourth quarter and complete a very successful
year. While we do not expect to achieve the high growth rate next year that we
have seen in 2013, we will continue to place resources on developing future
products and strategies to provide necessary diversification in our product

Selected Financial Information

CFO John Gonsior stated, “Our balance sheet remains strong, with over $21.4
million in working capital, versus $21.8 million at December 31, 2012. As of
September 30, 2013, we had cash and cash equivalents balances of $20.7
million, versus $20.3 million at December 31, 2012. Gross profit has continued
its positive trend, staying above 45% for both the three and nine months ended
September 30, 2013. Additionally, given the large increase in sales, combined
with fourth quarter bookings, certain performance-based compensation accruals
were triggered in the third quarter, which increased our expenses.”
