Depreciation and amortization expenses decreased by $27,983, or 93%, from $30,109 in 2008 to $2,127 in 2009. The decrease is due to fixed assets which have become fully depreciated and the disposition of various depreciable assets in conjunction with the Company's 2008 restructuring plans.
Other expense net, increased by $565,329 from $53,591 in other expense in 2008 to $618,920 in other expense in 2009. The majority of this increase is related to the conversion of debentures into equity resulting in an expense of $596,104 and from decreased interest income of $62,305 from a decline in cash and cash equivalents. We also recorded a $76,760 decrease in interest expense as the decrease is attributable to reduced debenture interest and a $16,320 decrease in other expenses as a result of an other income item related to Amino Labs.
