The Company had a net loss of $0.1 million or $0.01 per common share, basic and diluted, for the third quarter of 2009, compared to net income of $4.0 million or $0.18 per common share, basic and diluted, for the third quarter of 2008.

For the third quarter of 2009 the Company's revenue from continuing operations was $1.9 million, compared to $9.5 million for the third quarter of 2008. The 2009 revenue was earned by the Company's subsidiary, Counsel RB Capital, LLC ("Counsel RB"), which commenced operations in the second quarter of 2009, and in which the Company holds a 75% interest. The 2008 revenue was from a settlement and license agreement that the Company entered into in September 2008 with respect to the Company's intellectual property.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2009, the Company had a net loss of $0.4 million compared to net income of $6.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2008. The net loss per common share for the nine months ended September 30, 2009 was $0.02, basic and diluted, compared to net earnings per share of $0.27, basic and diluted, for the nine months ended September 30, 2008. The Company's operating revenue from continuing operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2009 was $6.0 million, as compared to $17.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2008. $5.0 million of the 2009 revenue was earned by Counsel RB, and the remaining $1.0 million was from a license agreement that the Company entered into in June 2009 with respect to the Company's intellectual property. All of the 2008 revenue was from settlement and license agreements with respect to the Company's intellectual property.

In August 2009 the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, C2 Communications Technologies Inc., filed a patent infringement lawsuit against PAETEC Corporation, Matrix Telecom, Inc., Windstream Corporation, and Telephone and Data Systems, Inc. The complaint was filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Oklahoma and alleges that the defendants' services and systems utilizing VoIP infringe the Company's U.S. Patent No. 6,243,373. The complaint seeks an injunction, monetary damages and costs.

"We are very pleased with the progress of Counsel RB during its first two quarters of operation", said Allan Silber, Chairman and CEO of C2. "As well, our investment in Polaroid Corporation has already shown a positive return, due to its successful efforts to promote the iconic Polaroid brand and capitalize on its intellectual property".
