reported net loss for the 2001 fiscal year was $3,569,101
compared with $1,807,686 for the previous year. This loss
is directly attributed to increased expenses due to the startup
costs for the Company's bandwidth and data center system.
About $1,550,000 of the increase of $1,760,000 in expenses
is due to greater selling, general and administrative (SG&A)
costs for the year. The SG&A expenses amounted to $3,293,230
compared with $1,524,923 over the prior period. About $900,000
of this increase is directly due to the significant addition
of management and technical staff to develop the broadband
business. The balance, approximately $650,000, arises from
increased legal, engineering and consultant expenses.
remainder of the increase arises from the $220,000 of interest
expense. This expense is primarily associated with the imputed
interest of approximately $540,000 relating to an acquisition
agreement for 505 miles rights-of-way and fiber conduit from
New Orleans to Jacksonville, Florida.
