Smith, Jr.,Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

He added that "the revenue improvements and reduction in the netloss for 2000 coupled with early indications of strong receptionfor substantially all of the Company's new products introducedduring 2000, provide for a strong base for our business in 2001. Weare targeting significant increases in revenues, approximately halfof which we believe should come from the wireless and broadbandsector under new marketing agreements with wireless providers.Although it is still early in the year, we believe that if ourmarkets continue to develop and strengthen through 2001, ourresults of operations will become profitable sometime during thesecond half of the year although we will not necessarily beprofitable on an annualized basis in 2001."
