 located in the states of Pennsylvania, Ohio and New York.  The Company is

 deployment having taken place in the U.S. Midwest and Northeastern markets.
 The Company now has successfully deployed its voice-enhanced services with
 eight different telcos, in eight different states with carriers with aggregate
 subscriber lines of 710,000 and of that potential market the Company currently
 has over 100,000 subscribers to its services.

 Preferred is on its way to attaining a nationwide presence and a dominant
 position in the voice recognition industry," stated Rick Stone, Senior VP
