The push for global economies to embrace the use of alternative fuels is more evident than ever before. Our recent announcement of our move into India with our new partner Energenics, is a prime example of the progress we are anticipating. This key market should be a major inflection point in 2007 as roll out commences. The kickoff of our school bus program should be another key driver for the Company as we move to expand the use of our fuels in the US. Our goal is to be recognized as a leader in the development of fuel alternatives. We believe we are well positioned to capture greater market share and expand our product offerings to enhance our position as a leader in the development and distribution of fuel alternatives as we execute our expansion in 2007."
