(a private outsourcing firm that provides, among other services, billing and collection for the telecommunications industry); and a $0.3 million note receivable from LICT Corporation.

ICTC Group, Inc.
As noted above, CIBL owns 40.6% of ICTC’s outstanding shares, and a Voting Rights Agreement which was effective April 11, 2013 brought the Company’s voting interest in ICTC to 51.3%. As a result, as of that date CIBL began reporting ICTC results on a consolidated basis. To help clarify these accounting dynamics, we provide a table that shows CIBL’s results on an ongoing basis, the results of ICTC for the relevant period, and the consolidated data reflecting the acquisition of voting control of ICTC by CIBL.
