Sales for the quarter ended June 30, 2005 show an increase of $195,000, or 22.9% over the same quarter last year. The increase is largely attributed to hardware sales, which increased from $309,000 in 2004 and $244,000 in the first quarter of 2005 to $477,000 this quarter. These hardware sales were related to the increased deployments of iMediaTouch to new radio station clients and Intertain's retail previewing service to existing clients. Although sales are higher, due to the lower margins associated with hardware, the overall increase in gross profit was only $39,000 (6.8%) over the same quarter last year and $17,000 (2.7%) lower than the first quarter this year. Software and service sales increased slightly from $540,000 to $567,000 (5.0%) over the same quarter last year. Year to date, gross profit was $73,000 (6.2%) higher this year, as compared to last year.

Operating expenses at $635,000 were $65,000 (11.4%) higher than in the same period last year and $76,000 (13.6%) higher than the first quarter of this year. The change is largely related to a significant increase in audit and consulting fees this quarter to support various past and current business development initiatives, as well as additional sales and management personnel. Research and development expenses declined 24.9% over the previous year, which are a result of the maturity and reliability levels of the company's technologies and improved efficiencies.

Other expenses increased by $67,000 (46.8%) as a result of debt service requirements on the $4,000,000 of convertible debt raised in December 2004. Payments toward this debt are for interest only, and no principle payments are required until maturity in December 2008.

The loss before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) was $25,000. Net loss after all costs and expenses was $236,000, or less than one cent per share.

Liquidity

OMT had a working capital balance of $228,499 as of June 30, 2005. This is a decrease of $117,826 since December 31, 2004. The current ratio of current assets to current liabilities is 1.22:1 as compared to 1.25:1 at December 31, 2004 and 0.5:1 at December 31, 2003. The improvement is a result of the financing that closed in December 2004. The company has no borrowings on the operating credit line of $600,000 as of June 30.

During the second quarter, the cash position was reduced by $77,000. Funds were used for operations of $13,000, capital expense of $7,000, and payments of long-term debt of $56,000.
