Also, Brillian implemented the provisions of Statement of Financial Accounting Standards ("SFAS") No. 123(r) "Accounting for Stock Based Compensation" on April 1, 2005. The provisions of SFAS No. 123(r) require companies to measure the fair value of stock options and other equity-based compensation on the grant date and recognize this value as an expense over the requisite service period.

Brillian ended the quarter with cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments of $1.2 million, working capital of $5.1 million, stockholders' equity of $9.7 million, and $2.0 million of debt. Subsequent to June 30, 2005, Brillian issued $5.0 million face value of convertible debentures and $2.1 million of senior secured debentures for total proceeds of $7.0 million. After considering placement agent commissions and offering expenses, net proceeds to Brillian totaled approximately $6.3 million. Had this transaction been completed on June 30, 2005, Brillian would have ended the quarter with cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments of $7.5 million, working capital of $11.4 million, stockholders' equity of $15.8 million, and $2.9 million of debt.
