From June 30, 2021, our sources of income include dividends on the Series B shares of HC Realty and interest paid on our cash deposits and the S&L Note. The Company believes that the income generated from these sources, the dividends paid on the common shares of HC Realty and the cash available are sufficient to fund operating expenses for at least 12 months from the date of these financial statements.
After June 30, 2021, the Company completed the acquisition of NCTIC and NCTG in accordance with the purchase agreement. See note 8 of the notes to the financial statements for a more in-depth analysis of the transaction. The Company will continue to seek acquisition opportunities that will allow us to potentially take advantage of the Company’s net operating losses carried forward and also create appropriate risk-adjusted returns for shareholders.
