Donald F. Mardak, Chief Executive Officer of International Monetary Systems, declared, �Our financial results this quarter benefited from an improved mix of business, including an increase in national accounts and a newly instituted program for small- to- medium-sized start-up companies, combined with operational efficiencies that we instituted over the past year. As we continue to demonstrate the benefits of our barter system to larger companies, we have been successful in attracting new business throughout the country, with particular strength from the hospitality industry where new member enrollment has been brisk.

�In addition to the improved revenue attributable to national accounts, we also continue to benefit from our core base of small business clients. The combination of these two segments has added much depth to the unique benefits that we offer our expanding group of members, as businesses strive to reduce their inventory levels, and barter for products and services that help to improve their own financial results.

�We continue to work on improvements to our infrastructure, and expect to launch our new operating system in the third quarter. This, combined with our anticipated growth in national accounts, is expected to continue driving improvements in all aspects of our operation,� he concluded.
