Description of Business
We provide authentication and grading services to dealers and collectors of coins, trading cards, event tickets, autographs and memorabilia (�collectibles�). We believe that our authentication and grading services add value to these collectibles by enhancing their marketability and thereby providing increased liquidity to the dealers, collectors and consumers that own and buy and sell them. Once we have authenticated and assigned a quality grade to a collectible, we encapsulate it in a tamper-evident, clear plastic holder, or issue a certificate of authenticity, that (i) identifies the specific collectible; (ii) sets forth the quality grade we have assigned to it; and (iii) bears one of our brand names and logos: �PCGS� for coins, �PSA� for trading cards and event tickets and �PSA/DNA� for autographs and memorabilia. Additionally, we warrant our certification of authenticity and the grade that we assign to the coins and trading cards bearing our brands.
