Our Sales and Cost of sales remain $0 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 as compared to the same period last year as the Company still in its developing stage. Our total comprehensive loss increased to $4,724,298 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 as compared to $2,509,412 in the same period last year. The increase in total comprehensive loss is mainly due to the increase in our operating expenses as a result of increases in stock-based compensation, satellite service fees, payroll and related expenses, legal, accounting and consulting fees.
