Revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2000, increased 19% to $2.35 million as compared to $1.96 million for the corresponding quarter of the prior year. The Company reported a net profit applicable to common stockholders of $106,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2000, as compared to a net loss applicable to common stockholders of $430,000 for the corresponding quarter of the prior year. The increase in revenue was primarily attributable to an increase in licensing and royalty revenues of 84%. The increases in net profit was further enhanced by a decrease in operating costs and expenses of 9% from the prior quarter, which were primarily related to decreases in cost of goods sold related to the Company's aftermarket revenues. The basic and diluted income per share was $0.001 on approximately 84.5 million weighted average common shares outstanding for the three months ended September 30, 2000 as compared to a basic and diluted loss of $0.005 per share on approximately 79.6 million weighted average common shares outstanding for the corresponding quarter of the prior year.

The net loss applicable to common stockholders for the nine months ended September 30, 2000 increased to $1.91 million as compared to a net loss of $1.29 million for the corresponding nine months of the prior year. The increase in net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2000 was primarily attributable to a 13% increase in operating costs and expenses, approximately 70% of which involves increases in product development, sales and marketing related programs and investor related activity. The basic and diluted loss per share was $0.023 on approximately 83.9 million weighted average common shares outstanding for the nine months ended September 30, 2000 as compared to a basic and diluted loss of $0.016 per share on approximately 79.4 million weighted average common shares outstanding for the corresponding period of the prior year.

Guido DiGregorio, President and CEO stated, "I am pleased to report profitability for the first time in the history of the company and, based on current order activity, we believe we will achieve our objective of sustained sales and earning growth. These results reflect our strategy, over the past two years, of focusing our product development, sales efforts and marketing related programs on emerging, fast growth applications where we can leverage our electronic signature and natural input technologies."

I don't think it is unusual for earnings to be up but it is a good sign that CICI is now profitable. The e-signature law and China deal are big. We should see continued strength from this company especially as their software is found more and more often on PDA's for secure signature verification.

Long CICI,
Kyle
