-- Tables to Follow –
The diluted net loss per share was the same as the basic net loss per share for the six-month period ended September 30, 2009 and 2010 as all potential ordinary shares including the stock options and warrants are anti-dilutive and are therefore excluded from the computation of diluted net loss per share.
