As we have discussed in the past, we expect our earning to fluctuate somewhat from quarter-to-quarter mainly due to our software. On a GAAP basis, total operating costs plus costs on revenues were $5.5 million in Q4 ’12, compared to $4.9 million in Q3 ’12 and $5.3 million in in Q4 '11.

In Q4 '12 we generated a GAAP net loss of 1.1 million or $0.25 per basic and the diluted share compared to the net loss of 0.7 million or 1 penny per basic and a diluted share in Q3 '12 and a net loss of 1.8 million or $0.40 per basic and a diluted share in Q4 '11.
