Reviews - A review consists principally of inquiries of Company personnel and analytical procedures applied to financial data.  It is substantially less in scope than an audit in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards, the objective of which is the expression of an opinion regarding the financial statements taken as a whole.  Based on our review we will attempt to identify   any material modifications that should be made to the financial statements in order for them to be in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles.

Compilations - A compilation is limited to presenting in the form of financial statements information that is the representation of the management. Compiled statements are not audited or reviewed and accordingly, do not express an opinion or any other form of assurance on them.
