The balance of Fiscal 2014, and Fiscal 2015, will be challenging for the Company. As previously announced, there is a hiatus in sales from one of our major customers (due to excess inventory on its side) resulting in a cut back in its purchases which may well continue into Fiscal 2015. In the event the Company is not able to replace the sales from this major customer with new contracts, it is not expected to be cash flow positive in Fiscal 2014, nor possibly in Fiscal 2015.
The Company has been working on a number of projects, some of which it hopes will result in significant revenue in Fiscal 2015. However, we cannot give any assurances that any of these projects will come to fruition and produce revenues.
Management believes that the Company has sufficient funds to meet its obligations and planned expenditures for the ensuing twelve months as they fall due. In assessing whether the going concern assumption is appropriate, management takes into account all available information about the future, which is at least, but not limited to, twelve months from the end of the reporting period.
