Annex A


The Company is currently evaluating certain revenue recognition accounting policies and determining whether or not it will have to restate its financial statements for certain previous periods. Additionally, in the event of such restatement, revenue previously reported by the Company would deferred. The issue, which the Company may be seeking SEC guidance on, could further delay the filing of the Form 10-QSB. If ultimately determined to be necessary, the restatements would possibly reduce revenue and income up to $1.1 million in fiscal 2001 and up to $400,000 in fiscal 2002. In addition there could be a potential additional cumulative liability of up to $5.1 million recorded for fiscal periods 1995 through 2002. The resolution of this issue would not impact the Company’s cash position.


The Company’s revenue for the three months ended February 28, 2003 is currently expected to range between $1.5 million and $1.7 million, subject to resolution of certain revenue recognition accounting policies. The resolution of this issue would not impact the Company’s cash for the period, but may result in the deferral of a portion of storage fee revenue and revenue related to revenue sharing agreements to subsequent periods. The consolidated net loss for the fiscal first quarter is expected to range between ($600,000) and ($1.1 million). The consolidated net income for the period ended February 28, 2002 was previously reported as $46,642 and may be revised to a net loss of approximately ($25,000) to the extent any amendments to the Company’s previously filed reports are necessary.
