The Company's business model involves the age validation of consumers when purchasing age restricted products, such as alcohol or tobacco. This age validation business is at the core of the Company's strategic direction. Our revenues are derived from the sales and leasing of age validation equipment, the performance of age validation as well as the sale and maintenance of vending solutions (through Mediawizz), and the broadcasting of in-store commercial messages using the age validation equipment between age checks (through HEM). Our revenues and operating results will depend in the future upon government laws and mandates, performance and pricing of our products/services, relationships with the public and other factors. The Company is not reliant on any one specific customer for revenues.

These factors have affected our historical results to a greater extent than has seasonality. Combinations of these factors have historically influenced our growth rate and profitability significantly in one period compared to another, and are expected to continue to influence future periods, which may compromise our ability to make accurate forecasts.
Cost of sales consists of customer support costs, training and professional services expenses, and parts for the terminals; which consist of small display screens, metallic housings, PC's, switches, small cameras similar to webcams, electronic components, cables, power supplies and software licenses amongst other items.
Our gross profit will continue to be affected by a variety of factors, including: the resistance from retailers to migrate from existing inefficient on-site age verification procedures, possible new competitors entering the market, the mix and average selling prices of products, maintenance and services, new versions of products, the cost of equipment, component shortages, and the mix of distribution channels to which our products and services are sold. Our gross profit will be adversely affected if relevant laws and regulations are not readily adopted by the retail chains or are not enforced by local government.
Selling, general and administrative expenses consist primarily of salaries and related expenses for executive, finance, accounting, legal and human resources personnel, professional fees and corporate expenses.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
The ability of the Company to satisfy its obligations and to continue as a going concern will depend on raising funds through the sale of additional shares of its common stock, increase borrowing, and upon its ability to reach a profitable level of operations. The Company's financial statements do not reflect adjustments that might result from its inability to continue as a going concern and these adjustments could be material.
The Company's capital resources have been provided primarily by capital contributions from stockholders, stockholders' loans, the conversion of outstanding debt into common stock of the Company, and the sale of Common Stock.
The Company intends to look for additional equity funding to pay debts and for working capital. However, there is no assurance that such capital will be raised, and the Company may seek bank financing and other sources of financing to complete the payment of debt and for working capital.
