A question-and-answer session will follow the formal presentation. [Operator Instructions]. As a reminder, this conference is being recorded.

I will now turn the conference over to the company for the Safe Harbor language. Please proceed.

Thank you. With that, I would like to turn the conference over to your host, Mr. Doug Bathauer. Please proceed, sir.

Doug Bathauer - CEO

First of all, welcome everybody. I appreciate you taking the time and always your continued support. Just to start off, to give you a little bit of the agenda. We’ll start off with Bart Snell, our CFO, and he will do an overview of our year-end financials. And I also do want to apologize. There was a little bit of an XPRL problem with XPRL, so the financials did not get up quite as timely as what were supposed to have been. But Bart will review those. And following Bart’s discussion, we’ll follow that with a Q&A. Followed by the Q&A, I will then give a bit of a corporate update and forward-looking as far as where we see the company going and that will be followed by question-and-answer as well.

So with that, I’d like to turn it over to Bart Snell to discuss the year-end financials.

Bart Snell - CFO

Thanks, Doug, and welcome to all of you on the call. By the way, the side comment about XPRL observation was at the SEC and not the Integral end of the filing. A couple of observations before we go through the fiscal year results in more detail. Going back to year-end 2013 when I first started to be involved with the company, there was a significant signing of an agreement with Hanwha in that 10-K but at the same time, the balance sheet was very weak. There was significant debt and there was an accompanying cash impact of interest expense as well as the dilutive conversion features with the debt.

This year, in addition to building the operational business, we had a plan to deleverage the company or reduce debt and improve the quality of our financial reporting. With the results for this year contained in the 10-K we just filed recently, we have made significant progress to reduce debt, improve the quality of our financial reporting and prepare the company for the expected revenue growth in the next several years.
