The Company's principal source of revenues is derived from providing
computerized accounting and support services to securities firms, banks
and other financial institutions. Service revenues are directly affected
by stock and bond trading market volume which indirectly impacts the
number of transactions processed for the clients and by the overall
condition of the financial services industry. The clients serviced could
become involved in mergers and/or acquisitions or may choose to convert
their business from self-clearing to a fully disclosed basis which could
eliminate the need for the accounting services provided by the Company.
The Company could be positively or negatively impacted by a merger
involving one of its clients or by a consolidation trend in the financial
services industry involving services or products.
