Highlight of Business Operations:

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues, expenses and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. We believe the critical accounting policies in Note 1 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements affect our more significant judgments and estimates used in the preparation of our financial statements. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions and conditions. (See Note 1 on page 7 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements herein and Note 1 on pages 8 and 9 to the Consolidated Financial Statements in the Annual Report to Shareholders for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2011).

In October, 2010, the Company entered into a lease agreement with a tenant for 18,218 square feet for office space at the Companys Nine Bond Street, Brooklyn, New York building. The cost of construction and brokerage commissions to the Company was $2,114,544. The Company has financed these costs through operating funds. The project was completed in November 2011. Rent will commence in early 2012.

The Company had expenditures of $124,878 in the three months ended October 31, 2011 for the renovation of 18,218 square feet for office space for a tenant at the Companys Nine Bond Street Brooklyn, New York building. The cost of the project was $1,639,404 and was completed in November 2011. The Company also had expenditures of $258,000 in the three months ended October 31, 2011 for a new heating system at its 25 Elm Place, Brooklyn, New York building.
