The first half of 2014 has been a record period for NTG Clarity with revenues remaining on pace with management's projections. Net income has been more challenging with the Company now being subject to full income taxes due to significant positive earnings over the past two years. Management is working diligently to improve margins and is seeking accretive acquisitions to reduce taxes payable.

NTG Clarity also recorded additional expenses this year due to the opening of new offices in Qatar and Kuwait, which is expected to lead to increased sales going forward. Share based payments, general & administrative expenses, selling and marketing expenses, depreciation & amortization, and foreign income taxes showed increases over the prior period, while interest expenses declined due to the more favourable interest rates on the Company's new line of credit. Overall, total expenses as a percentage of revenues for the three month period dropped to 23% compared to 33% in the prior year, while 6 month expenses totaled 32% of sales in 2014 compared to 34% of sales in 2013.

One of the reasons for our strong growth that continues in 2014 has been a renewed international focus on state-of-the-art technology and networking capabilities. Mobile applications have been the fastest growing technology trend with NTG's mobile application development being increasingly chosen as a leading product in these markets.
