This is the second consecutive quarter of Big Data revenues and we expect it to continue and eventually outpace our existing revenue streams."
General and administrative expenses increased by $437,708 or 59% during the quarter which was primarily attributable to increased consulting and staff salaries that are a consequence of building out our 3 lines of business simultaneously. Research and development expenses increase to $135,429 during the quarter which was up 31% due to high data access and usage fees charged by the telecom companies.
