On a continuing operations basis, which includes the contribution from Tekno Books, the Company's 100% owned subsidiary under the Intellectual Property division, net revenues for the 2012 third quarter were $0.1 million compared to $0.2 million in the prior-year period.

Net loss, which includes discontinued operations, was $0.5 million, or $0.02 per share, in the 2012 third quarter, compared to net loss of $5.4 million, or $0.23 per share, in the prior-year period.

At September 30, 2012, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $6.0 million and no debt as compared to cash and cash equivalents of $3.7 million and no debt at December 31, 2011.
