Hospitality revenue in the second quarter of 2013 increased 16% to $2.2 million, compared to $1.9 million in same period in 2012. This increase is primarily related to the increase in the Company's monthly recurring revenue associated with its revenue generating units ("RGUs"). 

An RGU is defined as a product or service for which the Company invoices the hotel monthly, including interactive television, video on demand, free to guest programming, and high speed internet access. As of June 30, 2013, the Company was servicing approximately 82,000 RGUs within the hospitality sector, a 71% increase over the number of RGUs being serviced as of June 30, 2012.

1. Reduced net loss by over $1.0 million year over year and $0.7 million quarter over quarter.
