THOMAS MADDEN: No, Im sorry, Im sorry. I missed the nine million, if I took out some of the
incremental expenses, you know this is a rough number so the nine million would be the base
excluding some of the merger-related costs and the impact of this one customer issue that Mark
referred to earlier.
DAN WESTON: Oh, OK.
THOMAS MADDEN: Im sorry. So the nine million is our starting point. We would see improvements
from there based on a reduction in cost to reflect the run rate of the business in the December
quarter of several million dollars.
DAN WESTON: Per year.
THOMAS MADDEN: Yes.
DAN WESTON: OK.
MARK LAYTON: And then you can do something if youre going to make your own forecasts on it you
can do something with the savings and estimate timing on that. And, you know, these are the moving
pieces that I cant I cant predict right now exactly when these things are going to be
obtained, you know, how quickly we turn them into the actual dollars. So thats the moving parts
that as I was describing that the visions, you know, just hard to do right now. But if you want
to make your own forecast you can take that four to five million and kind of try to, you know,
deploy some of those over 06 in terms of when they would come into play. And that would give you,
you know, a beginning of a picture. Thats kind of what were doing here right now. Were just
not ready to, you know, be able to make any statements about where exactly we are.
DAN WESTON: I know, I understand. Thats a good starting point, though. I appreciate the help
and good luck to you guys.
MARK LAYTON: Thank you.
THOMAS MADDEN: Thank you.
OPERATOR: Your next question comes from John Fitzgerald (ph), of Bishop Rosen & Company (ph).
JOHN FITZGERALD, BISHOP ROSEN & COMPANY: Yes, Mark, good morning.
MARK LAYTON: Hey, John.
JOHN FITZGERALD: A couple of questions, really. One is the cost per customer had a sharp
incentives year over year. Youve from 14.93 to 19.39 a customer. You indicated in the third
quarter that trend started back down. Do you have a goal to where you want to take that number
back down to?
