Revenues increased $1,327,899 or 2416% for the three months ended March 31, 2008, compared to the same period in 2007. The increases were primarily due to the successful launch of full scale operations after the initial period which began February 17, 2007. Revenues were derived primarily from the Consulting Division of Mobicom Korea which provides clients with strategic marketing services, such as Decision Support Systems, which are designed to assist clients in the development of their mobile marketing campaigns. The Decision Support System is then used to analyze the client's brand position in the market place and in turn to design predictive behaviour modelling and consumer purchase programs which are then implemented by our clients.

General and administrative costs were $1,141,684 for the three months ended March 31, 2008 compared with $15,845 for the same period in 2007. General and administrative expenses increased $1,125,839 for the three months ended March 31, 2008, compared to the same period a year ago. The increases in general and administrative expenses were primarily due to the launch of full scale operations after the initial period which began February 17, 2007. Net income includes income from operations and other expense. MOBICOM Corp. recorded net income of $241,060 for the three months ended March 31, 2008 compared to net income of $33,617 for the same period in 2007, an increase of 617%. The increase in net income for the three months ended March 31, 2008 as compared to the same period in 2007, was due to an increase in revenue of $1,327,899 offset by an increase in operating costs of $1,120,343. Fully diluted earnings per share based of 52,222,034 shares outstanding were $.005 per share for the quarter. Commenting on the results, MOBICOM Corp CEO, Michael Levinsohn, said, "First quarter 2008 results reflect approximately six weeks of full operations pursuant to our acquisition of AIMMS and the establishment of Mobicom Korea. The market for the products and services offered by MOBICOM Korea continues to be positive and despite talk of a slowdown in consumer spending, the mobile phone sector remains buoyant."
