Mr. Wang further noted, "Our Board of Directors will be considering payment of a dividend on common shares of stock based upon how our fourth quarter as well as year-end performance plays out."
Mr. Brett Roper, Chief Operating Officer noted, "We continue to experience strong growth in our revenues as we work to reduce our relative operating expense costs moving forward into our last quarter of FY 2014. We have posted year to date earnings covering nine months of operations of $0.25 per share in comparison to last year's losses to date of $0.17 per share and believe our stock should respond positively to this news."
