Executive Commentary – Jon Buttles, Principal Executive Officer
“During the second quarter of 2010 we continued to execute our strategic plan to refinance and restructure Advance Nanotech’s debt.  We are confident in Owlstone’s business development efforts as set forth in its most recent shareholder letter, which is available on our website.  It is important to note that, according to Owlstone’s shareholder letter, certain of Owlstone’s efforts are either classified or under strict non-disclosure agreements with Owlstone clients, which in some cases limits the information that can be announced to shareholders.  We are pleased that Owlstone has closed its most recent round of financing and has the necessary funds to potentially achieve cash flow profitability as early as end of this calendar year.  As for Advance Nanotech’s balance sheet, we are progressing on many parallel paths in our efforts to refinance and restructure our existing indebtedness, and are pleased with the progress thus far.”
