Upon completion of the due diligence and the contractual paperwork on acquisition of the assets of Brands Unlimited, which has shipped about $1.1M of denim and casual tops this year, we are looking to immediately add at least $1.4M of current orders and about another $600K of orders in the works to the books of Omni. And by consolidating the operations between New York and Los Angeles, combining our sales forces, reducing expenses and targeting strategic customers we are looking forward to building a very solid revenue base covering all tiers of the increasingly savvy apparel shoppers markets."
