“I could not be happier with the incredible transformation of the Company in the last several months; we have a much stronger balance sheet and have been able to reduce our expenses by over $80,000 per year in interest expense alone.” Whitcomb stated. “The Company is in a great position to pursue its new direction and has begun preliminary negotiations and due diligence on several potential acquisitions. I am very excited to share the news with our investors as we progress.”
