This new trading record reflects growing confidence in Universal by the investment community, and where they think we're headed. We had our best year in the Company's history in 2010, and delivered a very impressive first quarter this year with $22.56 million in revenues. We are continually pursuing various means to bring increased value to our shareholders. We also feel this will improve the Company's position to make it more compelling to larger retail and institutional investors, who are looking for strong growth stocks with \more volume, liquidity and a good exit strategy. I encourage our shareholders to continually watch the news in the weeks to come, as we execute more facets of our business plan."
