--  The increase in online English language learning revenue is primarily
    due to ELL Technologies' strategic decision in Q3 2012 to initiate
    complete overhaul and redevelopment of its product portfolio and to
    gradually phase out sales of its legacy software. The Company completed
    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
    this redevelopment process is expected to be completed by the end of Q3
    for Scholar, Business and Placement Test, with sales and marketing for
    the full suite of products will resume in Q4.

--  Operating expenses for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 totalled $319,430
    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
    of $107,080 or $0.005 per share based on 20.9 million shares
    outstanding.
