Subsequent to the close of the second quarter, Wizzard closed a $7.5 million round of financing and as a result, the second quarter financials include no “Going Concern” note to the financial statements for the first time in the Company’s history. In August, 2007, Wizzard announced that it made application to list the Company’s common shares on the American Stock Exchange and signed legendary musician, composer, producer Quincy Jones to an exclusive podcast advertising agreement.

“Wizzard’s overall revenues continue to grow and we expect that to continue throughout 2007 and into 2008,” said Chris Spencer, CEO of Wizzard Software. “Our legacy software and healthcare revenues continue to grow but it is our podcasting business where we see hyper growth potential. As we begin to help podcast publishers monetize their shows and supporting properties, we believe our revenue growth will accelerate substantially.”
