Thank you and good afternoon, everyone. As you know, this was a challenging quarter. So let me go through the numbers with you in some greater detail.
Revenue was approximately $1.8 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2007, an increase of 24% over the second quarter of fiscal year 2007. During the quarter, the company sold its Proxcelan seeds to 53 different medical centers as compared to 33 medical centers in the second quarter of fiscal year 2007.
The increase in revenue is related to the increased number of centers ordering as compared to the second quarter of fiscal year 2007. Revenue for the six months ended December 31, 2007 was approximately $3.6 million, an increase of 48% over the six months ended December 31, 2006.
During the six month ended December 31, 2007, the company sold its Proxcelan seeds to 65 different medical centers as compared to 35 during the same period of 2006. Gross loss for the quarter ended December 31, 2007 was $483,451, which represents a decrease in gross loss of $510,210 from the quarter ended December 31, 2006. The increase in gross loss is due the company's higher revenues being more than offset by higher production costs and the cost of decommissioning the company's old production facility.
