The increases in the following factors were the primary components affecting the increased loss for the second quarter of 2007 as compared to the second quarter of 2006: employees' salaries and benefits; depreciation expense; fees related to compliance with licensing and regulatory requirements; expenses related to sales efforts; research and development related to our Heads-Up Challenge product; and legal and professional fees.

The net loss increased to approximately $5,438,000 from approximately $3,823,000 in the same period in 2006, creating a net loss per common share, basic and diluted, of ($0.54) compared to ($0.40) for the first six months of fiscal year 2006.
