YTD operating EBITDA (defined as earnings before depreciation, amortization, interest, taxes and corporate overhead) now reaches $575,614.

CEO, Marius Silvasan, commented, "Second quarter results were marked by the transition to a new back office provider in support of our wireless operations. This migration was key to reestablishing growth in our wireless business. Previous system was costly and lacked the flexibility required to allow us to grow our wireless subscriber base. Second quarter revenue was flat when compared to first quarter. Decrease in revenue in the second quarter this year versus same period last years reflects the initial loss of wireless customers post acquisition of Liberty Wireless and prior to our integration of that business. We successfully narrowed first quarter net loss of $2.3 million to achieving virtual breakeven with a net loss of $13k in the second quarter. Operating cash flow remained strong at $2.2 million. Post June 30 we made the final balloon payment in the amount of $1.8 million for the acquisition of our telecom assets made in July 2005."

"We continued to face, during the quarter, impacts of various non-cash items which decreased our profitability but are not tied to operating results. Largest non-cash impact continues to be tied to our Cornell debt facility. We continue to evaluate opportunities to refinance such debt facility with more traditional financing instruments," added Silvasan.
