Highlight of Business Operations:

Revenue pertaining to our TPP segment consists of one-time set-up fees, monthly gateway fees, and transaction fees. TPP segment revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2010 was approximately $2,817,000, an increase of approximately $648,000 or approximately 29.9% from TPP segment revenue of approximately $2,169,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2009. The increase in TPP segment revenue was primarily attributable to a strengthening Canadian dollar in relation to the U.S. dollar which increased approximately 12% from the prior fiscal first quarter. Since a significant amount of our TPP segment revenue originates in Canadian dollars, the conversion of this revenue to U.S. dollars was at an increased exchange rate when compared to the prior fiscal first quarter conversion. TPP segment revenue originating in Canadian dollars was approximately $2,898,000CAD for the three months ended June 30, 2010 compared to $2,528,000CAD for the three months ended June 30, 2009, an increase of approximately $370,000CAD or approximately 14.6%. Transaction fees for the three months ended June 30, 2010 were approximately $2,307,000 compared to approximately $1,781,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2009, an increase of approximately $526,000 or approximately 29.5%; the amortized portion of one-time set-up fees recognized was approximately $53,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2010 compared to approximately $43,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2009, an increase of approximately $10,000 or approximately 23.3%; and monthly gateway fees for the three months ended June 30, 2010 were approximately $365,000 compared to approximately $266,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2009, an increase of approximately $99,000 or approximately 37.2%.

Costs of revenue increased from approximately $1,624,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2009, to approximately $2,610,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2010, an increase of approximately $986,000 or approximately 60.7%. The increase was primarily attributable to an increase in our TPP segment cost of revenue of approximately $489,000 or approximately 40% from approximately $1,222,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2009 to approximately $1,711,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2010 and an increase in IPL segment cost of revenue of approximately $497,000 from approximately for the three months ended June 30, 2009 to approximately $497,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2010. The increase in TPP segment cost of revenue was partially attributable to an increase in transaction costs of approximately 24.2% consistent with the increase in transaction fee revenue and partially attributable to a strengthening Canadian dollar in relation to the U.S. dollar which increased approximately 12% from the prior fiscal first quarter. Since a significant amount of our TPP segment cost of revenue originates in Canadian dollars, the conversion of these costs to U.S. dollars was at an increased exchange rate when compared to the prior fiscal third quarter conversion.

The increase in IPL segment cost of revenue was primarily attributable to the costs incurred in entering into the License Agreement with one of the defendants in the Patent Litigation during the three months ended June 30, 2010.

General and administrative expenses increased to approximately $1,168,000 from approximately $949,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively, an increase of approximately $219,000 or approximately 23.1%.

The decrease is primarily attributable to the expected recovery of taxes for the current fiscal quarter resulting from the implementation of certain tax planning strategies during the three months ended September 30, 2009. These strategies are intended to permit the recovery of income taxes previously paid on behalf of our subsidiary, Beanstream. Future income tax expense was approximately $940,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2010 compared to for the three months ended June 30, 2009, an increase in future income tax expense of approximately $940,000.

Cash used in financing activities was approximately $4,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2010 as compared to approximately $2,372,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2009, a decrease in cash used in financing activities of approximately $2,368,000.
