For the entire year we estimate earnings will finish at $.22 a share, up 22%. Next year initial contributions from the high potential SimVentures line will emerge. That should offset the drag exerted this year by the program's development costs, and perhaps generate some incremental profit. Both the learning and research segments are poised to keep expanding at above average rates. Overhead expenses are likely to remain steady, enabling earnings to once again grow faster than sales. We estimate 2011 earnings will attain $.28-.30 a share. Longer term, explosive gains are achievable if the SimVentures effort realizes its potential.
