C.

Nexus' cost cutting efforts and focus on higher margin projects has already paid off, and we believe will continue to yield favorable results. Our Polimatrix subsidiary has redefined how police, fire fighters and first responders detect radiological threats and because of its efforts was chosen to supply 22,000 hand-held radiation detection devices to the State of Illinois over the next years. We believe this is the biggest award ever issued in the United States in the hand-held radiation detection equipment industry. I believe these favorable results create value for our company and especially our shareholders."

McMillen continued, "The sale of Security Holding Corp resulted in a 22% return on investment for our shareholders. Also, we recently invested in a special purpose acquisition corporation, which raised $80 million in an IPO in late October. We are in discussions with other target companies and will continue following our business plan of acquiring companies that fit our model. We hope to complete one or two transactions in the first half of 2008."
