    the redesign of its product user interface, learning management system,
    and the multi-browser delivery system for desktops and tablets for the
    ELL Technologies products including Master and Kids. The final phase of

    as compared to $365,160 in 2013, a 13% decrease. Operating expenses
    decreased as a result of reduced sales and marketing costs while the ELL
    Technologies' products were undergoing the redesign. 
    
--  Total comprehensive income totalled $200,534 or $0.01 per share based on
    21.8 million shares outstanding compared to a total comprehensive income
