Eighty-two percent of all 2006 revenue, or approximately $16.1 million was for sales and licensing in the U.S.

Net loss for 2006 was $9.6 million, or $0.12 per fully diluted share. $4.0 million of that came in the fourth quarter. This compares with 2005 when the annual net loss was $5.0 million, or $0.10 per fully diluted share, for 2005.

The fourth quarter results reflect certain non-cash expenses, including an approximately $1.7 million non-cash impairment charge associated with the Company's 2005 Ingram acquisition. In addition, the Company incurred non-cash stock-based compensation expense of $429,000 as a result of the Company's adoption Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 123 (revised 2004), "Share-Based Payment," ("SFAS 123R"), and amortization and depreciation charges associated with the ArtSelect acquisition. The fourth quarter selling, general, and administrative expenses also included incremental corporate, legal and audit costs.

As of December 31, 2006 a21 had approximately 130 full time employees.
