Rental expenses in the three month period ended March 31, 2010 decreased to $273,214 compared to $311,717 for the corresponding period in 2009. This decrease was a result of cost savings activities in place at all locations.

Assets decreased by $56,303 to $30,123,457 for the three month period ended March 31, 2010, compared to an increase of $2,135 to $30,964,768 for the corresponding period ended March 31, 2009. The decrease was mainly due to an increase in accumulated amortization and a decrease in other assets. The increase in assets during the corresponding period in 2009 was the result of the acquisition of appliances.
