Highlight of Business Operations:

Secured revenue informs us as to the magnitude of the contract value of firm commitment orders received but not yet earned as revenue from services and, in conjunction with bookings forecasts for future periods, helps us manage our future staffing needs more accurately. It also serves as another indicator of the effectiveness of our marketing and sales initiatives. Based on our experience, projects in secured revenue at the end of a fiscal period generally convert to revenue from services during the following twelve months. However, generally, contracts may be cancelled or reduced in scope at any time.

At June 30, 2013, we had cash and cash equivalents of $15,744 compared with $11,456 at June 30, 2012. Available sources of cash to support known or reasonably likely cash requirements over the next 12 months include cash and cash equivalents on hand, additional cash that may be generated from our operations, and funds to the extent available through our credit facilities discussed below. While we believe that our available sources of cash will support known or reasonably likely cash requirements over the next 12 months, our ability to generate cash from our operations is dependent upon our ability to profitably generate revenue, which requires that we continually develop profitable new business, both for growth and to replace completed projects. Although work for no one client constitutes more than 10% of our revenue, we have had to find significant amounts of replacement and additional revenue as client relationships and work for continuing clients change and will likely have to continue to do so in the future. Our ability to profitably generate revenue depends not only on our execution of our business plans, but also on general market factors outside of our control. As many of our clients treat all or a portion of their market research expenditures as discretionary, our ability to profitably generate revenue is adversely impacted whenever there are adverse macroeconomic conditions in the markets we serve.
