We are in the process of formulating a detailed plan intended to streamline operations with a focus on our corporate and consumer products and services cost structure, which we intend to present later this month to our Board of Directors for approval. If this plan is approved or we otherwise undertake additional cost-cutting initiatives, we would expect our severance expense and cash used in operations to increase for the remainder of 2014, followed thereafter by reductions to our cost of revenue and general and administrative expenses. We anticipate providing more information about our plan, as well as updated guidance in the coming weeks.”
