3) Webcasting Platform - The Company has completed the latest set of feature enhancements to its proprietary webcasting software platform (webinar service) and is now developing several additional upgrades including a Flash based player, embedded Flash video and animations, rapid CD-ROM creation, storage and search of webcasts in the Digital Media Services Platform (DMSP) and both audio and video editing capabilities.
4) Encoding Group Expansion - In order to accomodate recent increases in our digital asset management business volume from our new clients, the Company has made significant encoding system hardware and software upgrades and increased our San Francisco facility by approximately 2,400 square feet.
Finally, the Company has received a letter from NASDAQ dated August 2, 2006 indicating that the Company has 180 calendar days, or until January 29, 2007, to regain compliance with Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(4), which is necessary in order to be eligible for continued listing on the NASDAQ Capital Market. The letter from NASDAQ indicated that the Company's non-compliance with that rule was as a result of the bid price of the Company's common stock closing below $1.00 per share for the preceding thirty consecutive business days. The Company may be considered compliant, subject to the NASDAQ staff's discretion, if its common stock closes at $1.00 per share or more for a minimum of ten consecutive business days before the January 29, 2007 deadline. If the Company is not considered compliant by January 29, 2007, but meets all other initial listing criteria for the NASDAQ Capital Market, it will be granted an additional 180 calendar day compliance period.
