"Setbacks notwithstanding, we remain very excited and optimistic about the future of Sitestar," said Frank R. Erhartic, Jr., CEO for Sitestar. "Our balance sheet remains strong and healthy so we can opportunistically acquire customers and expand into services that compliment our business model. Further, we have every confidence that the question of being relisted for active trading on the OTCBB is not a matter of 'if' but 'when.' The Company is continuing to execute with an eye on the long-term which, we believe, will reward the shareholders for their continued support and patience."
