Steven G. Mihaylo, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "I understand these are not results that are going to excite our shareholders however, the entire management team and I are working daily to improve results. We have had some positive trends but I also want to point out a number of things that are not apparent from the results. First, this last quarter we completed the transition of the business from a B2C model to a B2B model. With that, we have continued to 'right size' the business. We have reduced associates whose jobs were primarily supporting and making sales to the B2C customers. We were able to make these changes while employing high quality support staff who can work with the Crexendo customers as well as the legacy customers. We took great pains to make sure all customers have the tools they need while continuing to bring our costs in line. We continue to see improvement in the University Program, it is currently in 6 schools and we expect to have 120 web sites built from those students and we will be adding additional schools in the fall Semester. Excitement for the program is increasing drastically as the program grows. As I have explained, this will not bring immediate substantial benefit to our revenue but should be a real benefit in the future, bringing us excited and sticky customers. It is also bringing the immediate benefit of having the best and brightest students using our software and providing feedback to our engineers which is helping us improve our already world class software."

Mihaylo continued, "We are on the right track in our Web Services segment, we have improved our offerings and I am pleased that we have restored our backlog to historical levels. We regularly update and improve our top of the line telecom service. We have completed installation on one of our largest enterprise customers proving we can provide cost effective superb service to businesses with needs between 2 and 2,000 phones. Our total sales bookings and average size of each sale are improving, which have increased sales quarter over quarter and increased our backlog. These are exciting trends. We will continue to grow the business organically while we look at strategic opportunistic acquisitions, which will also help grow the business. I am as excited about the future as I have ever been; we are in the right place, with the right products, with the right people, at the right time."
