  • Instant Zipper will be debuted to the international market at the Electronic Retailing Association D2C Tradeshow in September 2011.

Management is in negotiations for purchase orders with several distributers out of Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
  • Completed two major financings during the quarter, raising approximately $1.7 million in aggregate.
  • Chairman and Founder Kevin Harrington appeared on ABC's popular and Emmy-winning daytime program The View on Friday, July 22nd.

Management believes it can reach millions of new consumers through this site.

"I am excited to report that we have made substantial progress toward our strategic goals this quarter," commented Kevin Harrington, Chairman of the Board. "We believe the foundation has been laid to significantly increase shareholder value over the next year. In just one year, we believe TVGoods has established a diverse and effective platform to monetize a large and rapidly growing number of unique products through direct response, live television shopping, retail, and catalog. We have also created a robust pipeline for securing new products to sell. In the next 12 months, we expect to experience accelerated growth as we leverage this powerful infrastructure."

CEO Steve Rogai added, "We have made significant operational improvements during the quarter. In addition, we have a record number of products under development and should be well-prepared for the upcoming holiday season.
