We function as a strategic solar technology partner, supplying the advanced thin film solar cell manufacturing know-how and capabilities that will enable original equipment manufacturers ("OEM") customers to address the expanding market for thin film solar products.
The product of the Company's development efforts is intended to deliver two aspects of deliverable technologies in the form of an integrated solution providing, a) commercially scalable manufactured processes and equipment designed for the specific manufacture of the Company's thin film solar technologies, and, b) proprietary thin film solar cell designs that address new application opportunities in the growing field of Building Integrated Photovoltaics.

The Company incurred operating expenses totaling $616,523 for the three months ending December 31, 2006 compared to $1,566,356 for the same period in 2005. Primary sources for the decrease to operating expense of $949,833 include: Warrant Option Expenses decreased by $951,250 to zero as compared to $951,250 in the same period in 2005. Loan Fees decreased by $213,000 to zero from $213,000 during the same period in 2005.

Salaries increased by $96,386 to 140,615 from $44,229 in the same period in 2005 as a result of the addition by the Company of three management level employees. The decrease in overall expenses was primarily attributable to the absence of a one-time expense of $951,250 associated with the grant of in-the-money warrants from the sale by the Company of secured convertible debentures in the period ended December 31, 2005 not present in the three month period ending December 31, 2006. The $616,523 operating expenses includes non-cash charges of $27,047 for depreciation.
The net loss for the three months ending December 31, 2006 was ($583,680) as compared to a net loss of ($1,595,533) for the same period 2005. The decrease of $1,011,853 includes (i) prior period one-time expenditures of $951,250 associated with Warrant Option Expenses, (ii) a prior period one-time expenditure of $213,000 associated with loan fees, partially offset by (iii) Salaries increased by $96,386 and Legal and Accounting increased by 43,668
The Company incurred net loses of ($583,680) and ($1,595,533) in the three-month period ended December 31, 2006 and 2005 respectively. The associated net loss per share was nominal in the three-month period ended December 31, 2006 and 2005. The Company anticipates the trend of losses to continue in future quarters until the Company can recognize sales of significance of which there is no assurance.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
The Company had cash at December 31, 2006 of $3,692,139 and prepaid expenses in the amount of $349,117 as compared to cash of $4,305,105 and prepaid expenses in the amount of $394,117 as of September 30, 2006.

Cash flow used in operating activities during the three-month period ended, December 31, 2006, was ($584,606) as compared to using ($1,848,956) for the same period 2005. The decrease of cash used in operations of $1,264,350 included (i) the decrease in net loss resulting primarily from prior period one-time expenditures of $951,250 associated with Warrant Option Expenses not incurred in the current period, (ii) a prior period one-time expenditure of $213,000 associated with loan fees not incurred in the current period. This decrease in Net Loss was partially offset by (i) Salary increases of $96,386 and Legal and Accounting increases of 43,668. The current period ending December 31, 2006 also included a non-cash deprecation expense of $27,047 while there was no deprecation expense in the period ending December 31, 2005.
For the three-months ended December 31, 2006, the Company's capital needs have been met from the use of working capital provided by the proceeds of
(i) the issuance of Common Stock for Debenture conversion and; (ii) the issuance of Common Stock for warrant conversion which both occurred in the fiscal year ended September 30, 2006.
We had, at December 31, 2006, cash and cash equivalents of $4,041,256 and net working capital of $3,478,830.
DEVELOPMENT STAGE COMPANY
The Company is in the development stage and as of the period ending December 31, 2006, did not have any significant revenues. We have begun marketing efforts and anticipate the sale of licenses in the 2007 period however the cash flow requirements associated with the transition to revenue recognition may exceed cash generated from operations in the current and future periods. We may seek to obtain additional financing from equity and/or debt placements. As such, the Company's ability to secure additional financing on a timely basis is critical to its ability to stay in business and to pursue planned operational activities.
While we have been able to raise capital in a series of equity and debt offerings in the past there can be no assurances that we will be able to obtain such additional financing, on terms acceptable to us and at the times required, or at all.
Irrespective of whether the Company's cash assets prove to be inadequate to meet the Company's operational needs, the Company might seek to compensate providers of services by issuances of stock in lieu of cash.
