ValueRich, Inc. (NYSE Amex: IVA) announced today that the Company has substantially increased its cash position due to the sale of one of its single-family home lots and also the release of funds back to ValueRich that secured a performance bond to satisfy an outstanding wetland mitigation issue with the South Florida Water Management District. The finished lot was sold for $300,000 and was one (1) of eighty-two (82) single-family home lots ValueRich acquired with its original purchase of the Tesoro Preserve Development assets. ValueRich also received approximately $540,000 in funds released from an escrow account that was held to guarantee the resolution of an outstanding wetland mitigation issue located within the Tesoro Preserve Development that was not satisfied by the original developer. ValueRich engaged Culpepper and Terpening, Inc. and RL Weigt Environmental Consultants to complete the engineering and environmental work and the Company purchased 3.3 off site wetland mitigation credits from Bluefield Ranch Mitigation Bank in order to bring the Tesoro Preserve development into regulatory compliance with the South Florida Water Management District.
“Adding over $750,000 in cash to our balance sheet gives us the ability to continue investing in undervalued real estate. We continue to further develop our relationships with the banks that hold a substantial portion of the non-performing notes and assets associated with the real estate in Tesoro Preserve. This infusion of cash should provide ValueRich with the funding needed to buy additional finished single family home lots at favorable prices,” said Joseph Visconti, president and CEO of ValueRich, Inc.

FOR THE NINE MONTHS ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2009 AND 2008
Note 1 - Organization and Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements have been prepared by ValueRich, Inc. (the “Company”) in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Accordingly, these condensed financial statements do not include all of the disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, the unaudited interim condensed financial statements furnished herein include all adjustments, all of which are of a normal recurring nature, necessary for a fair statement of the results for the interim period presented. Although management believes the disclosures and information presented are adequate to make the information not misleading, it is suggested that these interim condensed financial statements be read in conjunction with the Company's audited financial statements and notes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K/A for the year ended December 31, 2008. Operating results for the nine months ended September 30, 2009 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2009.
Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements. The Company bases its estimates on historical experience, management expectations for future performance, and other assumptions as appropriate. Key areas affected by estimates include the assessment of the recoverability of long-lived assets, which is based on such factors as estimated future cash flows. The Company re-evaluates its estimates on an ongoing basis; actual results may vary from those estimates.
Concentration of Credit Risk
Cash includes cash on hand and demand deposits in accounts maintained within the United States. Certain financial instruments, which subject the Company to concentration of credit risk, consist of cash. The Company maintains balances at financial institutions which, from time to time, may exceed Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) insured limits for the banks located in the Unites States. As of September 30, 2009 and December 31, 2008, the Company had deposits in excess of FDIC limits totaling $1,282,915 and $782,283, respectively. The Company has not experienced any losses in such accounts.
Cash and Cash Equivalents
Cash and cash equivalents include cash on hand and cash in time deposits, certificates of deposit and all highly liquid debt instruments with original maturities of three months or less.
The Company has designated its investments in marketable securities as trading and available-for-sale. Marketable securities that are bought and held principally for the purpose of selling them in the near term are classified as trading securities and are reported at fair value, with unrealized gains and losses recognized in earnings. Marketable equity securities not classified as trading are classified as available for sale, and are carried at fair market value, with the unrealized gains and losses, net of tax, included in the determination of comprehensive income and reported in shareholders’ equity. Investment income is recognized on an accrual basis.
The fair value of all securities is determined by quoted market prices. The estimated fair value of securities for which there are no quoted market prices is based on similar types of securities that are traded in the market.
Property, Plant and Equipment
Property and equipment are stated at historical cost and are depreciated using the straight-line method over their estimated useful lives. The useful life and depreciation method are reviewed periodically to ensure that the depreciation method and period are consistent with the anticipated pattern of future economic benefits. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are charged to operations as incurred while renewals and betterments are capitalized. Gains and losses on disposals are included in the results of operations.
The Company provides for depreciation over the assets’ estimated lives as follows:
Computers, software and equipment 3 years
Furniture and fixtures 5 years
Leasehold improvements Lesser of lease life or economic life
The Company follows FASB ASC 360-10, “Property, Plant, and Equipment,” which established a “primary asset” approach to determine the cash flow estimation period for a group of assets and liabilities that represents the unit of accounting for a long-lived asset to be held and used. Long-lived assets to be held and used are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. The carrying amount of a long-lived asset is not recoverable if it exceeds the sum of the undiscounted cash flows expected to result from the use and eventual disposition of the asset. Long-lived assets to be disposed of are reported at the lower of carrying amount or fair value less cost to sell. Through September 30, 2009, the Company had not experienced impairment losses on its long-lived assets.
Fair Value of Financial Instruments and Concentrations
On January 1, 2008, the Company adopted FASB ASC 820-10, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures.” FASB ASC 820-10 defines fair value, and establishes a three-level valuation hierarchy for disclosures of fair value measurement that enhances disclosure requirements for fair value measures. The carrying amounts reported in the consolidated balance sheets for receivables and current liabilities each qualify as financial instruments and are a reasonable estimate of their fair values because of the short period of time between the origination of such instruments and their expected realization and their current market rate of interest. The three levels of valuation hierarchy are defined as follows:
· Level 1 inputs to the valuation methodology are quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.
· Level 2 inputs to the valuation methodology include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, and inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the financial instrument.
· Level 3 inputs to the valuation methodology are unobservable and significant to the fair value measurement.
The Company’s investments in marketable securities are carried at fair value totaling $647,372 and $1,957,993 at September 30, 2009 and December 31, 2008, respectively. The Company used Level 1 inputs for its valuation methodology as the securities’ quoted prices are publicly available.

For the three months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008, the Company recognized net unrealized gains on its trading securities in its statements of operations in the amounts of $73,503 and $0, respectively. For the nine months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008, the Company recognized net unrealized gains on its trading securities in its statements of operations in the amounts of $2,310 and $0, respectively. For the three months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008, the Company recognized unrealized gains on its available-for-sale securities in its statements of stockholders’ equity in the amounts of $8,000 and $0, respectively. For the nine months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008, the Company recognized unrealized losses on its available-for-sale securities in its statements of stockholders’ equity in the amounts of $84,000 and $0, respectively.
The Company did not identify any other assets or liabilities that are required to be presented on the balance sheets at fair value in accordance with FASB ASC 815.
In February 2007, the FASB issued FAS No. 159, “The Fair Value Option for Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities,” now known as ASC Topic 825-10 “Financial Instruments.” ASC Topic 825-10 permits entities to choose to measure many financial assets and financial liabilities at fair value. Unrealized gains and losses on items for which the fair value option has been elected are reported in earnings. FASB ASC 825-10 is effective as of the beginning of an entity’s first fiscal year that begins after November 15, 2007. The Company adopted FASB ASC 825-10 on January 1, 2008. The Company chose not to elect the option to measure the fair value of eligible financial assets and liabilities.
Revenue is recognized in the period that services are provided. For revenue from product sales, the Company recognizes revenue in accordance with Staff Accounting Bulletin (“SAB”) Topic 13. SAB Topic 13 requires that four basic criteria must be met before revenue can be recognized: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; (2) delivery has occurred; (3) the selling price is fixed and determinable; and (4) collectability is reasonably assured. Determination of criteria (3) and (4) are based on management’s judgments regarding the fixed nature of the selling prices of the products delivered and the collectability of those amounts. Provisions for discounts and rebates to customers, estimated returns and allowances, and other adjustments are provided for in the same period the related sales are recorded. The Company defers any revenue for which the product has not been delivered or is subject to refund until such time that the Company and the customer jointly determine that the product has been delivered or no refund will be required. Payments received in advance are deferred until the product is delivered or service is rendered.
In 2008, the Company has focused on the transition from its old line of financial media products including the ValueRich financial Expos and the ValueRich Magazine to web-based products such as www.WallStreetHDTV.com, the second generation of www.iValueRich.com and www.ValueRichTV.com , which was launched during the quarter ended June 30, 2009. The Company has not earned any revenue from its old line of financial media products during the nine months ended September 30, 2009. During 2008, the Company entered into two consulting agreements to assist foreign-based companies manage their financial statement reporting, regulatory and compliance issues in the United States. The Company does not recognize revenue on its consulting business until persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, delivery has occurred (the Company has performed according to the terms of the consulting agreement), the selling price is fixed and determinable, and collectability is reasonably assured. See Note 3.
Income taxes are provided based upon the asset and liability method of accounting in accordance with FASB ASC 740, “Income Taxes.” Pursuant to FASB ASC 740, the Company is required to compute deferred income tax assets for net operating losses carried forward. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be realized or settled. The effect of a change in tax rates on deferred tax assets and liabilities is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. Realizing of deferred tax assets is assessed throughout the year and a valuation allowance is recorded if necessary to reduce net deferred tax assets to the amount more likely than not to be realized. The potential benefits of net operating losses (“NOLs”) have not been recognized in these financial statements because the Company cannot be assured it is more likely than not it will utilize the net operating losses carried forward in future years.
The Company has an NOL carry forward for income tax reporting purposes that may be offset against future taxable income. Current tax laws limit the amount of loss available to be offset against future taxable income when a substantial change in ownership occurs. Accordingly, the amount available to offset future taxable income may be limited. No tax benefit has been reported in the financial statements, because the Company is uncertain if they will ever be in a position to utilize the NOL carry forward. Accordingly, the potential tax benefits of the loss carry forward are offset by a valuation allowance of the same amount.
The Company is current in its filing of federal income tax returns. The Company believes that the statutes of limitations for its federal income tax returns are open for years after 2004. The Company is not currently under examination by the Internal Revenue Service or any other taxing authority.
Under FASB ASC 740, a tax position is recognized as a benefit only if it is “more likely than not” that the tax position would be sustained in a tax examination, with a tax examination being presumed to occur. The amount recognized is the largest amount of tax benefit that is greater than 50% likely of being realized on examination. For tax positions not meeting the “more likely than not” test, no tax benefit is recorded. The adoption had no effect on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
The Company’s practice is to recognize interest accrued related to unrecognized tax benefits in interest expense and penalties in operating expenses. At September 30, 2009 and December 31, 2008, the Company had no accrued interest or penalties.
Basic and Diluted Losses Per Share
Earnings per share is calculated in accordance with the FASB ASC 260, “Earnings Per Share.” Basic earnings per share is based upon the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted earnings per share is based on the assumption that all dilutive convertible shares and stock options were converted or exercised. Dilution is computed by applying the treasury stock method. Under this method, options and warrants are assumed to be exercised at the beginning of the period (or at the time of issuance, if later), and as if funds obtained thereby were used to purchase common stock at the average market price during the period. All dilutive securities were excluded from the diluted loss per share due to the anti-diluted effect.
The computation of earnings per share of common stock is based on the weighted average number of shares outstanding at the date of the financial statements.

As of September 30, 2009, there were 1,235,715 warrants and 100,000 options outstanding, respectively.
Special Purpose Entities
The Company does not have any off-balance sheet financing activities.
Certain reclassifications have been made to the 2008 financial statements to conform to the 2009 financial statement presentation. These reclassifications had no effect on net income or cash flows as previously reported.
In May 2009, the FASB issued SFAS No. 165, “Subsequent Events” (“SFAS 165”) codified in FASB ASC 855-10-05, which provides guidance to establish general standards of accounting for and disclosures of events that occur after the balance sheet date but before financial statements are issued or are available to be issued. FASB ASC 855-10-05 also requires entities to disclose the date through which subsequent events were evaluated as well as the rationale for why that date was selected. FASB ASC 855-10-05 is effective for interim and annual periods ending after June 15, 2009, and accordingly, the Company adopted this pronouncement during the second quarter of 2009. FASB ASC 855-10-05 requires that public entities evaluate subsequent events through the date that the financial statements are issued.
In June 2009, the FASB issued SFAS No. 166, “Accounting for Transfers of Financial Assets — an amendment of FASB Statement No. 140” (“SFAS 166”), codified as FASB ASC 860, which requires entities to provide more information regarding sales of securitized financial assets and similar transactions, particularly if the entity has continuing exposure to the risks related to transferred financial assets. FASB ASC 860 eliminates the concept of a “qualifying special-purpose entity,” changes the requirements for derecognizing financial assets and requires additional disclosures. FASB ASC 860 is effective for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2009. The adoption of FASB ASC 860 did not have an impact on the Company’s financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.
In June 2009, the FASB issued SFAS No. 167, “Amendments to FASB Interpretation No. 46(R)” (“SFAS 167”), codified as FASB ASC 810-10, which modifies how a company determines when an entity that is insufficiently capitalized or is not controlled through voting (or similar rights) should be consolidated. FASB ASC 810-10 clarifies that the determination of whether a company is required to consolidate an entity is based on, among other things, an entity’s purpose and design and a company’s ability to direct the activities of the entity that most significantly impact the entity’s economic performance. FASB ASC 810-10 requires an ongoing reassessment of whether a company is the primary beneficiary of a variable interest entity. FASB ASC 810-10 also requires additional disclosures about a company’s involvement in variable interest entities and any significant changes in risk exposure due to that involvement. FASB ASC 810-10 is effective for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2009. The adoption of FASB ASC 810-10 did not have an impact on the Company’s financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.
In June 2009, the FASB issued FASB ASC 105, Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, which establishes the FASB Accounting Standards Codification as the sole source of authoritative generally accepted accounting principles. Pursuant to the provisions of FASB ASC 105, the Company has updated references to GAAP in its financial statements issued for the period ended September 30, 2009. The adoption of FASB ASC 105 did not impact the Company’s financial position or results of operations.
Note 3 – Consulting Agreement with Bodisen Biotech
Effective July 1, 2008 and continuing for a period of 2 years, the Company was engaged to perform strategic business consulting services to Bodisen Biotech. As compensation for the consulting services, Bodisen Biotech has agreed to:
(a) Issue to the Company 400,000 shares of Bodisen Biotech common stock to the Company up front;
(b) Issue to the Company options to purchase 400,000 shares of its common stock. The options will be exercisable at $0.70 per share and will have an exercise period of 5 years;
(c) Pay the Company $10,000 per month for the 24-month consulting period, equaling a total of $120,000 per year.
The Company recorded $60,000 in marketable securities and corresponding revenue for the 400,000 shares received on September 18, 2008. The marketable securities have been classified as available-for-sale. These securities are carried at fair value with unrealized gains and losses, net of deferred income taxes, reported as accumulated other comprehensive income (loss), a separate component of stockholder's equity. See Note 4.
The Company has valued the options received under the consulting agreement using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The option exercise price is $0.70 per share. The fair value of the options was $25,800 and the following assumptions: term of 2.5 years, a risk free interest rate of 2.1%, a dividend yield of 0% and volatility of 128%. Management has performed an analysis and determined the options are impaired at September 30, 2009, and therefore the Company has recorded a 100% allowance against the value of the options.
For the nine months ended September 30, 2009, the Company has recognized $50,000, less wire fees, in consulting revenues relating to the cash component of its consulting compensation.
The consulting agreement was terminated by Bodisen Biotech on May 31, 2009, with no required further obligations by either party.
Note 4 – Marketable Securities
The Company invests its available operating funds primarily in high-yield mutual funds that hold common stock of U.S. companies with large market capitalizations. The Company also invests in common stock of U.S. companies with large market capitalizations. Management’s objective is to identify common stocks and mutual funds with holdings that are under-valued with potential for short-term (under one-year holding period) appreciation. The Company’s marketable securities consist of trading and available-for-sale securities, all of which are classified as marketable securities and are carried at their fair value based on the quoted market prices of the securities at September 30, 2009 and December 31, 2008. Net unrealized gains and losses on trading securities are included in the statements of operations and other comprehensive loss. Available-for sale securities consist of the 400,000 shares received in July 2008 for consulting services performed for Bodisen Biotech (see Note 3). These securities are carried at fair value with unrealized gains and losses, net of deferred income taxes, reported as accumulated other comprehensive income (loss), a separate component of stockholder's equity. The investment in these shares has been valued at $84,000 at September 30, 2009 and, accordingly a $24,000 unrealized gain has been recognized in accumulated other comprehensive income at September 30, 2009 in the accompanying balance sheets. Realized gains and losses on trading and available-for-sale securities are included in net earnings in the period earned or incurred. For purpose of determining realized gains and losses, the cost of securities sold is based on specific identification.
The composition of marketable securities, classified as current assets, is as follows at September 30, 2009 and December 31, 2008.
September 30, 2009

Net unrealized holding gain 73,503 - 2,310 -
Net investment income $ 87,256 - $ 129,086 $ -
Management evaluates securities for other-than-temporary impairment at least on a yearly basis, and more frequently when economic or market conditions warrant such evaluation. Consideration is given to the length of time and amount of the loss relative to cost, the nature and financial condition of the issuer and the ability and intent of the Company to hold the investment for a time sufficient to allow any anticipated recovery in fair value. There were no securities with unrealized losses that management considers to be other-than-temporary impairments at September 30, 2009 and December 31, 2008.
Proceeds from the sale of investments in trading securities during the three months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008 were $0 and $0, respectively. Proceeds from the sale of investments in trading securities during the nine months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008 were $2,247,235 and $0, respectively.

In addition to the information stated above, other material terms of the convertible debt instruments include: 1) a conversion price of $0.60 per share; 2) a debt penalty to include the issuance of additional shares upon conversion totaling 10% of the shares into which the note may convert if the Company’s shares are not listed for public trading on or before October 1, 2004; and 3) a warrant to purchase the same number of shares into which the original principal amount could be converted at an exercise price of $2.00 per share. As the convertible note payable is in default at September 30, 2009, the Company has classified the note as short-term in its accompanying balance sheets.
The Company has adopted FASB ASC 470-20 “Debt – Debt with Conversion and Other Options.” During 2004 and 2005 we incurred debt with a conversion feature that provides for a rate of conversion, but with no trading market value there was no beneficial conversion feature to record.
The Company repaid $9,500 and $25,000 of its shareholder notes payable in cash during the nine months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008, respectively.
Note 10 – Equity
The Company did not issue shares of its common stock during the nine months ended September 30, 2009.
Note 11 – Warrants
On March 19, 2009, the Company granted a warrant to purchase 50,000 shares of its common stock at $0.25 per share in connection with consulting services. The warrant was valued at $18,395 using the Black-Scholes pricing model with the following assumptions: (1) dividend yield of 0%; (2) expected volatility of 184%; (3) risk-free interest rate of 0.87%, and expected life of 2 years. The amount was recorded to professional fees in the accompanying statement of operations and comprehensive loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2009.
The following table summarizes the changes in warrants outstanding and the related prices for the shares of the Company’s common stock issued to non-employees of the Company. These warrants were granted in connection with the convertible shareholder notes payable and for consulting services.
A summary of warrant activity for the nine months ended September 30, 2009 is presented below:

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
This discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the accompanying Condensed Financial Statements and related notes. Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our condensed financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of any contingent liabilities at the financial statement date and reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. On an on-going basis we review our estimates and assumptions. Our estimates are based on our historical experience and other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results are likely to differ from those estimates under different assumptions or conditions. Our critical accounting policies, the policies we believe are most important to the presentation of our financial statements and require the most difficult, subjective and complex judgments, are outlined below in ‘‘Critical Accounting Policies,’’ and have not changed significantly.
Certain statements made in this report may constitute “forward-looking statements on our current expectations and projections about future events ”. These forward-looking statements involve known or unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results, performance, or achievements of the Company to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. In some cases you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as “may,” “should,” “potential,” “continue,” “expects,” “anticipates,” “intends,” “plans,” “believes,” “estimates,” and similar expressions. These statements are based on our current beliefs, expectations, and assumptions and are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties. Although we believe that the expectations reflected-in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements. These forward-looking statements are made as of the date of this report, and we assume no obligation to update these forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise, other than as required by law. In light of these assumptions, risks, and uncertainties, the forward-looking events discussed in this report might not occur and actual results and events may vary significantly from those discussed in the forward-looking statements .
The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with our financial statements and related footnotes for the year ended December 31, 2008 included in our Form 10K/A for the year ended December 31, 2008 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The discussion of results, causes and trends should not be construed to imply any conclusion that such results or trends will necessarily continue in the future.
Our Corporate History
ValueRich, Inc., (the Company), was incorporated under the laws of the state of Florida on July 11, 2003 and reincorporated in Delaware on March 3, 2006. The Company owns various online and offline media-based properties for corporate and financial professionals. Its properties include 1) iValueRich.com, 2) ValueRich magazine and 3) the ValueRich Small-cap Financial Expo. iValueRich.com is an online community providing a range of business solutions for public companies and the many industry related businesses and professionals that seek to do business with each other. The small-cap financial expo is a unique expo-style financial conference format for small-cap public companies to showcase their products and services and have continuous access to investment bankers and buy-side professionals.
We have a limited operating history. We launched iValuerich.com in June 2006, we hosted our first financial expo in March 2005, and we published our first edition of ValueRich magazine in the spring of 2004. During our limited operating history, we have not been profitable. For the nine months ended September 30, 2009, we incurred a net loss and comprehensive loss of $519,913 and $603,913, respectively.
Our corporate mission is to create an active community of Wall Street professionals and small-cap public company executives. To accomplish this we will use our online and offline properties, including our global Internet community, print publishing and financial events to connect the corporate and financial professionals that make up the securities industry. We seek to accomplish this through our integrated portfolio of products and services that we now provide for the small public capitalization market place.
Results of Operations
Our results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009 have been significantly impacted by our decision to revise our financial expo line of business to be a co-branded or partnered expo in response to increased competition we have experienced in the financial convention space. Since we were unable until the mid-second quarter 2008 to find a suitable partner to co-brand or partner our expos, we did not have any expo events during 2008 as we had planned, and therefore we did not derive any revenue from expos during 2008.
Throughout 2008, we have focused on the transition of our old line financial media products including the ValueRich financial Expos and the ValueRich Magazine to web-based products such as www.WallStreetHDTV.com, the second generation of www.iValueRich.com and www.ValueRichTV.com , which was launched during the nine months ended September 30, 2009.
By the first quarter of 2009, we had launched the second generation of the ValueRich platform, which added a full spectrum of financial and web-based tools for small-cap companies seeking to go public and raise capital via a web-based Direct Offering (“DO”) format. Companies that want to raise capital could file their own registration statement through the DO process and pay us for the use of our technology platform and access to our financial related professionals to assist in funding the issuing company’s deal. For the first time, users of the ValueRich technology platform who have verified their qualified investor’s status will be able to discover and participate in Direct Offerings featured on the ValueRich platform. While we are not a registered broker-dealer or investment advisor, soon we will be able to provide companies with technology and marketing tools they need to communicate directly with qualified investors.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2009, we launched a business talk show called ValueRich TV, which is produced at a dedicated studio next door to our headquarters. Its purpose is to create a successful Wall Street based talk show that can be streamed over the internet for worldwide distribution. In January 2009, we purchased and closed on the building to be used as the studio.
In August 2008, we implemented a stock repurchase program for up to $400,000 shares of our common stock on the open market. However, our stock has become somewhat illiquid due to very light volume. To date, the $400,000 buy back program has resulted in only approximately $30,000 of stock being repurchased in the open market.

Revenue and Cost of Revenue
During the three months ended September 30, 2009, we generated $15,500 in revenue that arose primarily from consulting services we provided. During the same period of 2008 we had revenues of $89,950. During 2009, we launched ValueRich TV, which is produced at a dedicated studio next door to our headquarters. We have not yet earned revenue from ValueRichTV in 2009. We anticipate generating revenue from this line of business over the next twelve months as we continue to promote this product. Our total cost of revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2009 was $0 as compared to $1,560 for the three months ended September 30, 2008.
Total operating expenses decreased by $102,490 from $289,599 for the three months ended September 30, 2008 to $187,109 for the three months ended September 30, 2009. The decrease in total operating expenses was due to a decrease in salaries as a result of downsizing and a decrease in consulting services received.
Other Income (Expense)
Other income (expenses) during the three months ended September 30, 2009 as compared to September 30, 2008 in
