John H.

Despite these industry wide challenges, we continue to see signs of revenue growth through our new partnerships, new distribution channels and further development of our software products.”
We continue to work on raising additional capital and on July 15, 2014 entered into a Subordinated Secured Convertible Bridge Note and Warrant Purchase Agreement for the issuance of up to $750,000 aggregate principal amount of Subordinated Secured Convertible Bridge Notes and Warrants. The Bridge Notes and Warrants were issued on July 15, 2014.
