In 2013, we ceased all business activities in our subsidiary Net Enforcers. We determined that Net Enforcers met the requirements for classification as a discontinued operation under U.S. GAAP and we have recast our condensed consolidated statements of operations for the periods presented. Income from discontinued operations, net of tax, was $10 thousand for the three months ended March 31, 2013.

In addition, on March 10, 2014, we made the determination to cease ongoing operations at our subsidiary Intersection Business Intelligence Services (D/B/A Zumetrics®). These operations ceased on or around April 30, 2014. We plan to classify Zumetrics® as a discontinued operation at the time it meets the requirements under U.S. GAAP and, thereafter, will no longer have a Market Intelligence segment.
