The decrease in revenues in 2013 can be partially attributed to a transition from a 100% production services studio to a balanced production model consisting of service projects and owned intellectual properties, where the Company's production work related to these owned intellectual properties is capitalized as investments in film and television assets. Revenues will be recognised from sales in the market upon release of the film.

Michael Hefferon, President and Executive Producer, commented, "Our production activities continued to grow in the fourth quarter with our latest feature film, Ratchet and Clank, in conjunction with continued production on the 'Barbie' film titles with Mattel and the January 2014 announcement of the Company's next feature film, Sly Cooper. Mainframe, the Company's recently launched television division, secured production of two series of 52 x 11 minute episodes of Bob the Builder with Hit Entertainment. Production began in February 2014 with the delivery of the final episodes expected in mid 2016. Mainframe also announced its plans to reboot the iconic animated television property ReBoot, which is currently in development as a series.

Hefferon continued, "We are pleased with the progress made to date on all production fronts, as we build a strong foundation for growth in 2014 and work towards a successful targeted release of Ratchet and Clank in 2015."

Mr. Craig Graham, Chief Executive Officer, added, "The 2013 year was another challenging year however we did take significant steps this year to support the Company's goals moving forward. Some of the key accomplishments include:


--  Raise $5,986,000 of convertible debentures 
--  Secured Ratchet & Clank as feature film production 
--  Recruited key management personnel 

We are actively pursuing new opportunities on both production service and intellectual property projects, and continue to develop our strategic co-production and distribution partnerships in Asia."
