The significant decrease in revenues is principally due to the loss of one major customer in 2009 offset by roll out of new contracts signed during the year.

The Company recorded Income prior to income taxes, for the third quarter of 2009 of $1,781,821 compared with Income prior to income taxes of $38,594 in the third quarter of 2008.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2009 revenues decreased by 35% to $3,201,083 from $4,986,507 during the same period in 2008. The decrease in revenue is predominantly due to the loss of one major customer from January 1, 2009 partly offset by revenue from new contracts. The Company recorded a loss from operations of $1,009,865 for the nine months ending September 30, 2009 compared to a $67,225 loss from operations during the same period in 2008. The increase in loss is primarily attributed to changes in charges to derivative liabilities and interest expense. Net Loss for the first nine months of 2009 was $1,939,994 compared to Net Loss of $126,842 during the same period in 2008.

At the end of the third quarter 2009 the Company had 16,768 solutions operational in Brazil including over 3,500 Point of Sales (POS) Solutions. During the nine months ended September 30, 2009 the company installed approximately 8000 Web solutions and disconnected over 800 Interactive Voice Response (IVR) Solutions allowing for greater operational flexibility and increased functionality for the client.

At the end of the third quarter 2009 a majority of the Company's transactions were being undertaken by the Company's Web solution compared to less than 10% during the same period in 2008.

In announcing the results Stephen Walters, President & CEO, stated, "Revenue increase during the quarter was less than expected despite having signed a number of new contracts was less than expected due to a number of operational issues at our clients regarding connectivity. Notwithstanding transaction volumes have increased from 1.87 million in the first quarter of 2009 to 2.33 million during the third quarter of 2009. An independent valuation of certain IP assets was accepted by the Brazil authorities during the third quarter 2009 and the IP was registered in Brazil with the Intellectual Property Agency. The proposed buyer of the Brazil assets was issued a independent Rating Agency Report on the business in order to the structure the transaction via a Government registered Bank Credit Note.
