A 1-for-6 reverse stock split of the outstanding shares of our common stock was effective on April 5, 2010. Except as otherwise indicated, all related amounts reported in our consolidated financial statements and in this 10-Q including common share quantities, convertible debenture conversion prices and exercise prices of options and warrants, have been retroactively adjusted for the effect of this reverse stock split.

CERTAIN CAUTIONARY STATEMENTS REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING INFORMATION

 Certain statements in this quarterly report on Form 10-Q contain or may contain forward-looking statements that are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements were based on various factors and were derived utilizing numerous assumptions and other factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. These risks, uncertainties and other factors include, but are not limited to, our ability to implement our strategic initiatives (including our ability to successfully complete, produce, market and/or sell the DMSP and/or our ability to eliminate cash flow deficits by increasing our sales), economic, political and market conditions and fluctuations, government and industry regulation, interest rate risk, U.S. and global competition, and other factors affecting our operations and the fluctuation of our common stock price, and other factors discussed elsewhere in this report and in other documents filed by us with the Securities and Exchange Commission from time to time. Most of these factors are difficult to predict accurately and are generally beyond our control. You should consider the areas of risk described in connection with any forward-looking statements that may be made herein. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of December 31, 2010, unless otherwise stated. You should carefully review this Form 10-Q in its entirety, including but not limited to our financial statements and the notes thereto, as well as our most recently filed 10-K. Except for our ongoing obligations to disclose material information under the Federal securities laws, we undertake no obligation to release publicly any revisions to any forward-looking statements, to report events or to report the occurrence of unanticipated events. Actual results could differ materially from the forward-looking statements. In light of these risks and uncertainties, there can be no assurance that the forward-looking information contained in this report will, in fact, occur. For any forward-looking statements contained in any document, we claim the protection of the safe harbor for forward-looking statements contained in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

ONSTREAM MEDIA CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
DECEMBER 31, 2010

NOTE 1: NATURE OF BUSINESS AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Nature of Business

Onstream Media Corporation (“we” or "Onstream" or "ONSM"), organized in 1993, is a leading online service provider of live and on-demand Internet video, corporate audio and web communications and content management applications, provided primarily to corporate (including large as well as small to medium sized businesses), education and government customers.

The Digital Media Services Group consists primarily of our Webcasting division, our DMSP (“Digital Media Services Platform”) division and our MP365 (“MarketPlace365”) division. The DMSP division includes the related UGC (“User Generated Content”) and Smart Encoding divisions.

The Webcasting division, which operates primarily from Pompano Beach, Florida and has its main sales facility in New York City, provides an array of corporate-oriented, web-based media services to the corporate market including live audio and video webcasting and on-demand audio and video streaming for any business, government or educational entity. The Webcasting division generates revenue primarily through production and distribution fees.

The DMSP division, which operates primarily from Colorado Springs, Colorado, provides an online, subscription based service that includes access to enabling technologies and features for our clients to acquire, store, index, secure, manage, distribute and transform these digital assets into saleable commodities. The DMSP division generates revenues primarily from monthly subscription fees, plus charges for hosting, storage and professional services. Our UGC division, which also operates as Auction Video (see note 2) and operates primarily from Colorado Springs, Colorado, provides a video ingestion and flash encoder that can be used by our clients on a stand-alone basis or in conjunction with the DMSP. The Smart Encoding division, which operates primarily from San Francisco, California, provides both automated and manual encoding and editorial services for processing digital media. This division also provides hosting, storage and streaming services for digital media, which are provided via the DMSP.

The MP365 division, which operates primarily from Pompano Beach, Florida with additional operations in San Francisco, California, enables publishers, associations, tradeshow promoters and entrepreneurs to self-deploy their own online virtual marketplaces using the MarketPlace365TM platform. The MP365 division generates revenues primarily from monthly booth fees charged to MP365 promoters.

The Audio and Web Conferencing Services Group consists of our Infinite Conferencing (“Infinite”) division and our EDNet division. Our Infinite division, which operates primarily from the New York City area, generates revenues from usage charges and fees for other services provided in connection with “reservationless” and operator-assisted audio and web conferencing services – see note 2.

The EDNet division, which operates primarily from San Francisco, California, provides connectivity (in the form of high quality audio, compressed video and multimedia data communications) within the entertainment and advertising industries through its managed network, which encompasses production and post-production companies, advertisers, producers, directors, and talent. EDNet generates revenues primarily from network access and usage fees as well as sale, rental and installation of equipment.

ONSTREAM MEDIA CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
DECEMBER 31, 2010

NOTE 1: NATURE OF BUSINESS AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

Liquidity

The consolidated financial statements have been presented on the basis that we are an ongoing concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. We have incurred losses since our inception, and have an accumulated deficit of approximately $124.4 million as of December 31, 2010. Our operations have been financed primarily through the issuance of equity and debt. For the year ended September 30, 2010, we had a net loss of approximately $9.3 million, although cash used in operations for that period was approximately $197,000. For the three months ended December 31, 2010, we had a net loss of approximately $898,000, although cash used in operations for that period was approximately $79,000. Although we had cash of approximately $138,000 at December 31, 2010, our working capital was a deficit of approximately $3.8 million at that date.

We have estimated that we would require an approximately 7-8% increase in our consolidated revenues, as compared to our revenues for the twelve months ended September 30, 2010, in order to adequately fund our anticipated operating cash expenditures for the twelve months ending September 30, 2011 (including cash interest expense and a basic level of capital expenditures).  Due to seasonality, this increase would be accomplished if we were to achieve average quarterly revenues during the twelve months ending September 30, 2011 equivalent to the revenues for the third quarter of fiscal 2010. We have estimated that, in addition to this revenue increase, we will also require additional debt or equity financing of approximately $1.5 to $2.0 million (in addition to recent sales of common shares discussed below) over the twelve months ending September 30, 2011 to satisfy principal repayments due against existing debt as well as past due trade payables that we believe are necessary to pay to continue our operations. However, approximately $1.0 million of this $1.5 to $2.0 million (related to the repayment of the Equipment Notes – see note 4) would not be required until June 2011.

If we were to achieve revenue increases in excess of this 7-8%, or if any of our lenders elected to convert a portion of the existing debt to equity as allowed for under its terms, the required financing could be less than this $1.5 to $2.0 million. However, if we did not achieve these revenue increases, or if our operating expenses, cash interest or capital expenditures were higher than anticipated over the twelve months ending September 30, 2011, the required financing could be greater than this $1.5 to $2.0 million.

We have implemented and continue to implement specific actions, including hiring additional sales personnel, developing new products and initiating new marketing programs, geared towards achieving revenue increases. The costs associated with these actions were contemplated in the above calculations.  However, in the event we are unable to achieve the required revenue increases, we believe that a combination of identified decreases in our current level of expenditures that we would implement and the raising of additional capital in the form of debt and/or equity that we believe we could obtain from identified sources would be sufficient to allow us to operate for the next twelve months. We will closely monitor our revenue and other business activity to determine if and when further cost reductions, the raising of additional capital, or other activity is considered necessary.

Liquidity (continued)

A prospectus allowing us to offer and sell up to $6.6 million of our registered common shares (“Shelf Registration”) was declared effective by the SEC on April 30, 2010. On September 17, 2010, we entered into a Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Lincoln Park Capital Fund, LLC (“LPC”), whereby LPC agreed to purchase our common and preferred shares, and 1.6 million common shares (including those issuable upon conversion of the preferred shares) were included in a prospectus supplement filed by us with the SEC in connection with a takedown under the Shelf Registration. On September 24, 2010, we received $824,044 net proceeds (after deducting fees and legal, accounting and other out-of-pocket costs incurred by us) related to our issuance under that Purchase Agreement of the equivalent of 770,000 common shares (including those issuable upon conversion of the preferred shares). During the three months ended December 31, 2010, LPC purchased an additional 315,000 shares of our common stock under that Purchase Agreement for net proceeds of $268,045.  During the period from January 1, 2011 through February 4, 2011 LPC purchased an additional 225,000 shares of our common stock under that Purchase Agreement for net proceeds of $185,526. LPC has also committed to purchase, at our sole discretion, up to an additional 290,000 shares of our common stock in installments over the remaining term of the Purchase Agreement, generally at prevailing market prices, but subject to the specific restrictions and conditions in the Purchase Agreement, including but not limited to a minimum market price of $0.75 per share.

In addition, we have agreed to use our best efforts to get, within 190 days from the date of the Purchase Agreement, shareholder approval to sell up to an additional 1,900,000 of our common shares to LPC, which upon such approval LPC has agreed to purchase, at our sole discretion and subject to the same restrictions and conditions in the Purchase Agreement.

There is no assurance that we will sell additional shares to LPC under the Purchase Agreement of that we will sell additional shares under the Shelf Registration, or if we do make such sales what the timing or proceeds will be. In addition, we may incur fees in connection with such sales. Furthermore, sales under the Shelf Registration that exceed in aggregate twenty percent (20%) of our outstanding shares would be subject to prior shareholder approval.

On January 4, 2011, we received a funding commitment letter (the “Funding Letter”) from J&C Resources, Inc. (“J&C”) irrevocably agreeing to provide us, within twenty (20) days after our notice given on or before December 31, 2011, aggregate cash funding of up to $500,000, which may be requested in multiple tranches. Mr. Charles Johnston, one of our directors, is the president of J&C. This Funding Letter was obtained solely to demonstrate our ability to obtain short-term funds in the event other funding sources are not available, but does not represent any obligation to accept such funding on these terms and is not expected by us to be exercised. Cash provided under the Funding Letter would be in exchange for our issuance of (a) a note or notes with interest payable monthly at 15% per annum and principal payable on the earlier of a date twelve months from funding or July 1, 2012 and (b) our issuance of 1 million unregistered common shares, which shares would be prorated in the case of partial funding. The note or notes would be unsecured and subordinated to all of our other debts, except to the extent such the terms of such debts would allow pari passu status. Furthermore, the note or notes would not be subject to any provisions, other than with respect to priority of payments or collateral, of our other debts. Upon receipt by us of an equivalent amount in dollars of investment from any other source after the date of this Funding Letter, other than funding received in connection with the LPC Purchase Agreement, this Funding Letter will be terminated.

NOTE 1: NATURE OF BUSINESS AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

Liquidity (continued)

Our continued existence is dependent upon our ability to raise capital and to market and sell our services successfully. However, there are no assurances whatsoever that we will be able to sell additional common shares or other forms of equity under the LPC Purchase Agreement, the Shelf Registration or otherwise and/or that we will be able to borrow further funds under the Funding Letter or otherwise and/or that we will increase our revenues and/or control our expenses to a level sufficient to provide positive cash flow. The financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect future effects on the recoverability and classification of assets or amounts and classification of liabilities that may result if we are unsuccessful.

Basis of Consolidation

The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Onstream Media Corporation and its subsidiaries - Infinite Conferencing, Inc., Entertainment Digital Network, Inc., OSM Acquisition, Inc., AV Acquisition, Inc., Auction Video Japan, Inc., HotelView Corporation and Media On Demand, Inc. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

Reverse stock split

A 1-for-6 reverse stock split of the outstanding shares of our common stock was effective on April 5, 2010. Except as otherwise indicated, all related amounts reported in these consolidated financial statements, including common share quantities, convertible debenture conversion prices and exercise prices of options and warrants, have been retroactively adjusted for the effect of this reverse stock split.

Cash and cash equivalents

Cash and cash equivalents consists of all highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less.

Concentration of Credit Risk

We at times have cash in banks in excess of FDIC insurance limits and place our temporary cash investments with high credit quality financial institutions. We perform ongoing credit evaluations of our customers' financial condition and do not require collateral from them. Reserves for credit losses are maintained at levels considered adequate by our management.

Bad Debt Reserves

Where we are aware of circumstances that may impair a specific customer's ability to meet its financial obligations, we record a specific allowance against amounts due from it, and thereby reduces the receivable to an amount we reasonably believe will be collected. For all other customers, we recognize allowances for doubtful accounts based on the length of time the receivables are past due, the current business environment and historical experience.

Inventories

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost (first-in, first-out method) or market by analyzing market conditions, current sales prices, inventory costs, and inventory balances.  We evaluate inventory balances for excess quantities and obsolescence on a regular basis by analyzing backlog, estimated demand, inventory on hand, sales levels and other information. Based on that analysis, our management estimates the amount of provisions made for obsolete or slow moving inventory.

Fair Value Measurements

The carrying amounts of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable, accrued liabilities and amounts due to directors and officers approximate fair value due to the short maturity of the instruments. The carrying amounts of the current portion of notes, debentures and leases payable approximate fair value due to the short maturity of the instruments, as well as the market value interest rates they carry.

Effective October 1, 2008, we adopted the provisions of the Fair Values Measurements and Disclosures topic of the Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”), with respect to our financial assets and liabilities, identified based on the definition of a financial instrument contained in the Financial Instruments topic of the ASC. This definition includes a contract that imposes a contractual obligation on us to exchange other financial instruments with the other party to the contract on potentially unfavorable terms. We have determined that the Lehmann Note, the Wilmington Notes, the Greenberg Note, the Rockridge Note, the CCJ Note and the Equipment Notes discussed in note 4 and the redeemable portion of the Series A-12 (preferred stock) are (or were) financial liabilities subject to the accounting and disclosure requirements of the Fair Values Measurements and Disclosures topic of the ASC. This is further discussed in “Effects of Recent Accounting Pronouncements” below.

Under the above accounting standards, fair value is defined as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. Valuation techniques used to measure fair value should maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. The accounting standards describe a fair value hierarchy based on three levels of inputs, of which the first two are considered observable and the last unobservable, that may be used to measure fair value:

Level 1 - Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

Level 2 - Inputs other than Level 1 that are observable, either directly or indirectly, such as quoted   prices for similar assets or liabilities; quoted prices in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.

Level 3 - Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

Fair Value Measurements (continued)

We have determined that there are no Level 1 inputs for determining the fair value of the Lehmann Note, the Wilmington Notes, the Greenberg Note, the Rockridge Note, the CCJ Note, the Equipment Notes or the redeemable portion of the Series A-12. However, we have determined that the fair value of the Lehmann Note, the Wilmington Notes, the Greenberg Note, the Rockridge Note, the CCJ Note, the Equipment Notes and the redeemable portion of the Series A-12 may be determined using Level 2 inputs, as follows: the fair market value interest rate paid by us under our line of credit arrangement (the “Line”) as discussed in note 4 and the value of conversion rights contained in those arrangements, based on the relevant aspects of the same Black Scholes valuation model used by us to value our options and warrants. We have also determined that the fair value of the Lehmann Note, the Wilmington Notes, the Greenberg Note, the Rockridge Note, the CCJ Note, the Equipment Notes and the redeemable portion of the Series A-12 may be determined using Level 3 inputs, as follows: third party studies arriving at recommended discount factors for valuing payments made in unregistered restricted stock instead of cash.

Based on the use of the inputs described above, we have determined that there was no material difference between the carrying value and the fair value of the Lehmann Note, the Wilmington Notes, the Greenberg Note, the Rockridge Note, the CCJ Note, the Equipment Notes and the redeemable portion of the Series A-12 as of September 30, 2009, December 31, 2009, September 30, 2010 or December 31, 2010 (to the extent each of those liabilities were outstanding on each of those dates) and therefore no adjustment with respect to fair value was made to our financial statements as of those dates or for the three months ended December 31, 2010 and 2009, respectively.

In accordance with the Financial Instruments topic of the ASC, we may elect to report most financial instruments and certain other items at fair value on an instrument-by-instrument basis with changes in fair value reported in earnings. After the initial adoption, the election is made at the acquisition of an eligible financial asset, financial liability, or firm commitment or when certain specified reconsideration events occur. The fair value election may not be revoked once an election is made. We have elected not to measure eligible financial assets and liabilities at fair value.

Property and Equipment

Property and equipment are recorded at cost, less accumulated depreciation.  Property and equipment under capital leases are stated at the lower of the present value of the minimum lease payments at the beginning of the lease term or the fair value at the inception of the lease. Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the related assets. Amortization expense on assets acquired under capital leases is included in depreciation expense. The costs of leasehold improvements are amortized over the lesser of the lease term or the life of the improvement.

Software

Included in property and equipment is computer software developed for internal use, including the Digital Media Services Platform (“DMSP”), the iEncode webcasting software and the MarketPlace365 (“MP365”) platform – see notes 2 and 3.  Such amounts have been accounted for in accordance with the Intangibles – Goodwill and Other topic of the ASC and are amortized on a straight-line basis over three to five years, commencing when the related asset (or major upgrade release thereof) has been substantially placed in service.

Goodwill and other intangible assets

In accordance with the Intangibles – Goodwill and Other topic of the ASC, goodwill is reviewed annually (or more frequently if impairment indicators arise) for impairment. Other intangible assets, such as customer lists, are amortized to expense over their estimated useful lives, although they are still subject to review and adjustment for impairment.

We review our long-lived assets for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. We assess the recoverability of such assets by comparing the estimated undiscounted cash flows associated with the related asset or group of assets against their respective carrying amounts. The impairment amount, if any, is calculated based on the excess of the carrying amount over the fair value of those assets.

We follow a two step process for impairment testing of goodwill. The first step of this test, used to identify potential impairment and described above, compares the fair value of a reporting unit with its carrying amount, including goodwill. The second step, if necessary, measures the amount of the impairment, including a comparison and reconciliation of the carrying value of all of our reporting units to our market capitalization, after appropriate adjustments for control premium and other considerations. See note 2 – Goodwill and other Acquisition-Related Intangible Assets.

Revenue Recognition

Revenues from sales of goods and services are recognized when (i) persuasive evidence of an arrangement between us and the customer exists, (ii) the goods or service has been provided to the customer, (iii) the price to the customer is fixed or determinable and (iv) collectibility of the sales price is reasonably assured.

The Webcasting division of the Digital Media Services Group recognizes revenue from live and on-demand webcasts at the time an event is accessible for streaming over the Internet.  Webcasting services are provided to customers using our proprietary streaming media software, tools and processes. Customer billings are typically based on (i) the volume of data streamed at rates agreed upon in the customer contract or (ii) a set monthly fee. Since the primary deliverable for the webcasting group is a webcast, returns are inapplicable.  If we have difficulty in producing the webcast, we may reduce the fee charged to the customer.  Historically these reductions have been immaterial, and are recorded in the month the event occurs.

Services for live webcast events are usually sold for a single price that includes on-demand webcasting services in which we host an archive of the webcast event for future access on an on-demand basis for periods ranging from one month to one year. However, on-demand webcasting services are sometimes sold separately without the live event component and we have referred to these separately billed transactions as verifiable and objective evidence of the amount of our revenues related to on-demand services.  In addition, we have determined that the material portion of all views of archived webcasts take place within the first ten days after the live webcast.

Based on our review of the above data, we have determined that the material portion of our revenues for on-demand webcasting services are recognized during the period in which those services are provided, which complies with the provisions of the Revenue Recognition topic of the ASC. Furthermore, we have determined that the maximum potentially deferrable revenue from on-demand webcasting services charged for but not provided as of December 31, 2010 and September 30, 2010 was immaterial in relation to our recorded liabilities at those dates.

We include the DMSP and UGC divisions’ revenues, along with the Smart Encoding division’s revenues from hosting, storage and streaming, in the DMSP and hosting revenue caption. We include the EDNet division’s revenues from equipment sales and rentals and the Smart Encoding division’s revenues from encoding and editorial services in the Other Revenue caption.

The DMSP, UGC and Smart Encoding divisions of the Digital Media Services Group recognize revenues from the acquisition, editing, transcoding, indexing, storage and distribution of their customers’ digital media. Charges to customers by these divisions generally include a monthly subscription or hosting fee. Additional charges based on the activity or volumes of media processed, streamed or stored by us, expressed in megabytes or similar terms, are recognized at the time the service is performed. Fees charged for customized applications or set-up are recognized as revenue at the time the application or set-up is completed.

Revenue Recognition (continued)

The Infinite division of the Audio and Web Conferencing Services Group generates revenues from audio conferencing and web conferencing services, plus recording and other ancillary services.  Infinite owns telephone switches used for audio conference calls by its customers, which are generally charged for those calls based on a per-minute usage rate. Infinite provides online webconferencing services to its customers, charging either a per-minute rate or a monthly subscription fee allowing a certain level of usage. Audio conferencing and web conferencing revenue is recognized based on the timing of the customer’s use of those services.

The EDNet division of the Audio and Web Conferencing Services Group generates revenues from customer usage of digital telephone connections controlled by EDNet, as well as bridging services and the sale and rental of equipment.  EDNet purchases digital phone lines from telephone companies (and resellers) and sells access to the lines, as well as separate per-minute usage charges. Network usage and bridging revenue is recognized based on the timing of the customer’s use of those services.

EDNet sells various audio codecs and video transport systems, equipment which enables its customers to collaborate with other companies or with other locations.  As such, revenue is recognized for the sale of equipment when the equipment is installed or upon signing of a contract after the equipment is installed and successfully operating.  All sales are final and there are no refund rights or rights of return. EDNet leases some equipment to customers under terms that are accounted for as operating leases.  Rental revenue from leases is recognized ratably over the life of the lease and the related equipment is depreciated over its estimated useful life.  All leases of the related equipment contain fixed terms.

Deferred revenue represents amounts billed to customers for webcasting, EDNet, smart encoding or DMSP services to be provided in future accounting periods.  As projects or events are completed and/or the services provided, the revenue is recognized.

Comprehensive Income or Loss

We have recognized no transactions generating comprehensive income or loss that are not included in our net loss, and accordingly, net loss equals comprehensive loss for all periods presented.

Advertising and marketing

Advertising and marketing costs, which are charged to operations as incurred and included in Professional Fees and Other General and Administrative Operating Expenses, were approximately $202,000 and $80,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2010 and 2009, respectively. These amounts include third party marketing consultant fees and third party sales commissions, but do not include commissions or other compensation to our employee sales staff.

Income Taxes

As part of the process of preparing our consolidated financial statements, we are required to estimate our income taxes in each of the jurisdictions in which we operate. This process involves estimating current tax exposure together with assessing temporary differences resulting from differing treatment of items for tax and accounting purposes. These differences result in deferred tax assets and liabilities, which are included within our consolidated balance sheet. We then assess the likelihood that the deferred tax assets will be recovered from future taxable income and to the extent we believe that recovery is not likely, we establish a valuation allowance. To the extent we establish a valuation allowance or change this allowance in a period, we include an expense or a benefit within the tax provision in our statement of operations.

We have approximately $93 million in Federal net operating loss carryforwards as of December 31, 2010, approximately $8 million which expire in fiscal years 2011 through 2012 and approximately $85 million which expire in fiscal years 2018 through 2030.  Our utilization of approximately $20 million of the net operating loss carryforwards, acquired from the 2001 acquisition of EDNet and the 2002 acquisition of MOD and included in this $93 million total, against future taxable income may be limited as a result of ownership changes and other limitations.

Significant judgment is required in determining our provision for income taxes, our deferred tax assets and liabilities and any valuation allowance recorded against those deferred tax assets. We had a deferred tax asset of approximately $35.0 million as of December 31, 2010, primarily resulting from net operating loss carryforwards. A full valuation allowance has been recorded related to the deferred tax asset due to the uncertainty of realizing the benefits of certain net operating loss carryforwards before they expire. Our management will continue to assess the likelihood that the deferred tax asset will be realizable and the valuation allowance will be adjusted accordingly.

Accordingly, no income tax benefit was recorded in our consolidated statement of operations as a result of the net tax losses for the three months ended December 31, 2010 and 2009.  The primary differences between the net loss for book and the net loss for tax purposes are the following items expensed for book purposes but not deductible for tax purposes – amortization of certain loan discounts, amortization and/or impairment adjustments of certain acquired intangible assets, and expenses for stock options and shares issued in payment for consultant and employee services but not exercised by the recipients, or in the case of shares, not registered for or eligible for resale.

The Income Taxes topic of the ASC prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. However, as of December 31 and September 30, 2010, respectively, we have not taken, nor recognized the financial statement impact of, any material tax positions, as defined above. Our policy is to recognize, as non-operating expense, interest or penalties related to income tax matters at the time such payments become probable, although we had not recognized any such material items in our statement of operations for the three months ended December 31, 2010 and 2009. The tax year ending September 30, 2005 as well as the tax years ending September 30, 2007 and thereafter remain subject to examination by Federal and various state tax jurisdictions.

Net Loss per Share

For the three months ended December 31, 2010 and 2009, net loss per share is based on the net loss divided by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding – see discussion of reverse stock split above.  Since the effect of common stock equivalents was anti-dilutive, all such equivalents were excluded from the calculation of weighted average shares outstanding. The total outstanding options and warrants, which have been excluded from the calculation of weighted average shares outstanding, were 2,172,439 and 2,169,008 at December 31, 2010 and 2009, respectively.

In addition, the potential dilutive effects of the following convertible securities outstanding at December 31, 2010 have been excluded from the calculation of weighted average shares outstanding: (i) 35,000 shares of Series A-13 Convertible Preferred Stock (“Series A-13”) which could have potentially converted into 116,667 shares of ONSM common stock (175,000 shares based on the January 2011 amendment – see note 6), (ii) 420,000 shares of Series A-14 Convertible Preferred Stock which could potentially convert into 420,000 shares of ONSM common stock (iii) $1,000,000 of convertible notes which in aggregate could potentially convert into up to 208,333 shares of our common stock (excluding interest), (iv) the right to receive 366,667 restricted shares of our common stock for an origination fee in connection with the Rockridge Note, issuable upon not less than sixty-one (61) days written notice to us, (v) the $996,334 convertible portion of the Rockridge Note which could have potentially converted into up to 415,139 shares of our common stock, (vi) the $200,000 CCJ Note, which could have potentially converted into up to 66,667 shares of our common stock (100,000 shares based on the January 2011 amendment – see note 4) and (vii) the $172,000 outstanding balance of the Lehmann Note, which could have potentially converted into up to 84,314 shares of our common stock (and was repaid by the issuance of 200,000 common shares in January 2011 – see note 4).

Furthermore, if we were to sell all or substantially all of our assets prior to the repayment of the Rockridge Note, the remaining outstanding principal amount of the Rockridge Note could be converted into restricted shares of our common stock, which would have been 208,606 shares as of December 31, 2010 (in addition to the 415,139 shares noted above).

The potential dilutive effects of the following convertible securities outstanding at December 31, 2009 have been excluded from the calculation of weighted average shares outstanding: (i) 35,000 shares of Series A-13 which could have potentially converted into 116,667 shares of ONSM common stock, (ii) $1,000,000 of convertible notes which in aggregate could have potentially converted into up to 208,333 shares of our common stock (excluding interest), (iii) the right to receive 366,667 restricted shares of our common stock for an origination fee in connection with the Rockridge Note, issuable upon not less than sixty-one (61) days written notice to us, (iv) the $500,000 convertible portion of the Rockridge Note which could have potentially converted into up to 208,333 shares of our common stock and (v) the $200,000 CCJ Note, which could have potentially converted into up to 66,667 shares of our common stock.

Compensation and related expenses

Compensation costs for employees considered to be direct labor are included as part of webcasting and smart encoding costs of revenue. Certain compensation costs for employees involved in development of software for internal use, as discussed under Software above, are capitalized. Accrued liabilities and amounts due to directors and officers includes, in aggregate, approximately $797,000 and $779,000 as of December 31 and September 30, 2010, respectively, related to salaries, commissions, taxes, vacation and other benefits earned but not paid as of those dates.

Equity Compensation to Employees and Consultants

We have a stock based compensation plan (the “2007 Plan”) for our employees. The Compensation – Stock Compensation topic of the ASC requires all companies to measure compensation cost for all share-based payments, including employee stock options, at fair value, which we adopted as of October 1, 2006 (the required date) and first applied during the year ended September 30, 2007, using the modified-prospective-transition method. Under this method, compensation cost recognized for the three months ended December 31, 2010 and 2009 includes compensation cost for all share-based payments granted subsequent to September 30, 2006, calculated using the Black-Scholes model, based on the estimated grant-date fair value and allocated over the applicable vesting and/or service period. As of October 1, 2006, there were no outstanding share-based payments granted prior to that date, but not yet vested. There were no Plan options granted during the three months ended December 30, 2010. For Plan options that were granted (or extended) and thus valued under the Black-Scholes model during the three months ended December 31, 2009, the expected volatility rate was approximately 88%, the risk-free interest rate was approximately 2.5% and the expected term was approximately 5 years.

We have granted Non-Plan Options to consultants and other third parties. These options have been accounted for under the Equity topic (Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees subtopic) of the ASC, under which the fair value of the options at the time of their issuance, calculated using the Black-Scholes model, is reflected as a prepaid expense in our consolidated balance sheet at that time and expensed as professional fees during the time the services contemplated by the options are provided to us. There were no Non-Plan options granted during the three months ended December 31, 2010. For Non-Plan options that were granted and thus valued under the Black-Scholes model during the three months ended December 31, 2009, the expected volatility rate was approximately 91 to 97%, the risk-free interest rate was approximately 1.9% to 2.6% and the expected term was 4 to 5 years.

In all valuations above, expected dividends were $0 and the expected term was the full term of the related options (or in the case of extended options, the incremental increase in the option term as compared to the remaining term at the time of the extension). See Note 8 for additional information related to all stock option issuances.

Accounting Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires our management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Estimates are used when accounting for allowances for doubtful accounts, revenue reserves, inventory reserves, depreciation and amortization lives and methods, income taxes and related reserves, contingencies and goodwill and other impairment allowances. Such estimates are reviewed on an on-going basis and actual results could be materially affected by those estimates.

Reclassifications

Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation, including classifications between accounts payable, accrued liabilities and amounts due to directors and officers. Also see discussion of reverse stock split above.

Interim Financial Data

In the opinion of our management, the accompanying unaudited interim financial statements have been prepared by us pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. These interim financial statements do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements and should be read in conjunction with our annual financial statements as of September 30, 2010. These interim financial statements have not been audited. However, our management believes the accompanying unaudited interim financial statements contain all adjustments, consisting of only normal recurring adjustments, necessary to present fairly our consolidated financial position as of December 31, 2010 and the results of our operations and cash flows for the three months ended December 31, 2010 and 2009. The results of operations and cash flows for the interim period are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations or cash flows that can be expected for the year ending September 30, 2011.

Effects of Recent Accounting Pronouncements

The Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures topic of the Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) includes certain concepts first set forth in September 2006, which define the use of fair value measures in financial statements, establish a framework for measuring fair value and expand disclosure related to the use of fair value measures. In February 2008, the FASB provided a one-year deferral of the effective date of those concepts for non-financial assets and non-financial liabilities, except those that are recognized or disclosed in the financial statements at fair value at least annually. The application of these concepts was effective for our fiscal year beginning October 1, 2008, excluding the effect of the one-year deferral noted above. See “Fair Value Measurements” above. We adopted these concepts with respect to our non-financial assets and non-financial liabilities that are not measured at fair value at least annually, effective October 1, 2009. The adoption of these concepts did not have a material impact on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

NOTE 1: NATURE OF BUSINESS AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

Effects of Recent Accounting Pronouncements (continued)

The Business Combinations topic of the ASC establishes principles and requirements for how an acquirer recognizes and measures in its financial statements the identifiable assets acquired, the liabilities assumed, and any noncontrolling interest in an acquiree, including the recognition and measurement of goodwill acquired in a business combination.  Certain provisions of this guidance were first effective for our fiscal year beginning October 1, 2009, although they did not have a material impact on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

The Intangibles – Goodwill and Other topic of the ASC states the factors that should be considered in developing renewal or extension assumptions used to determine the useful life of a recognized intangible asset, which requirements were effective for our fiscal year beginning October 1, 2009. The objective of these requirements is to improve the consistency between the useful life of a recognized intangible asset under the Intangibles – Goodwill and Other topic of the ASC and the period of expected cash flows used to measure the fair value of the asset under the Business Combinations topic of the ASC. These requirements apply to all intangible assets, whether acquired in a business combination or otherwise, and will be applied prospectively to intangible assets acquired after the effective date.

The Debt topic of the ASC specifies that issuers of convertible debt instruments that may be settled in cash upon conversion (including partial cash settlement) should separately account for the liability and equity components in a manner that will reflect the entity’s nonconvertible debt borrowing rate when interest cost is recognized in subsequent periods. These requirements were effective for our fiscal year beginning October 1, 2009, although they did not have a material impact on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

ASC Topic 415, Derivatives and Hedging, outlines a two-step approach to evaluate an instrument’s contingent exercise provisions, if any, and to evaluate the instrument’s settlement provisions when determining whether an equity-linked financial instrument (or embedded feature) is indexed to an entity’s own stock, which would in turn determine whether the instrument was treated as a liability to be recorded on the balance sheet at fair value and then adjusted to market in subsequent accounting periods. These provisions were first effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2008 and accordingly were first applied by us for our fiscal year beginning October 1, 2009. There were no outstanding instruments that this accounting would apply to as of the beginning of the fiscal year of adoption, and therefore there was no cumulative-effect adjustment recorded to the opening balance of retained earnings related to this issue. However, it was determined that this pronouncement did apply to warrants issued by us in September 2010 – see note 8.

Effects of Recent Accounting Pronouncements (continued)

In October 2009, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued ASC update number 2009-14 -Software (Topic 985): Certain Revenue Arrangements That Include Software Elements (“Update 2009-14”) and ASC update number 2009-13 - Revenue Recognition (Topic 605): Multiple-Deliverable Revenue Arrangements (“Update 2009-13”). As summarized in Update 2009-14, ASC Topic 985 has been amended to remove from the scope of industry specific revenue accounting guidance for software and software related transactions, tangible products containing software components and non-software components that function together to deliver the product’s essential functionality. As summarized in Update 2009-13, ASC Topic 605 has been amended (1) to provide updated guidance on whether multiple deliverables exist, how the deliverables in an arrangement should be separated, and the consideration allocated; (2) to require an entity to allocate revenue in an arrangement using estimated selling prices of deliverables if a vendor does not have vendor-specific objective evidence (“VSOE”) or third-party evidence of selling price; and (3) to eliminate the use of the residual method and require an entity to allocate revenue using the relative selling price method. These requirements were effective for our fiscal year ended September 30, 2011 and were adopted by us accordingly, on a prospective basis. These requirements are not expected to have a material impact on our financial position or results of operation.

In January 2010, the FASB issued ASC update number 2010-06 - Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (Topic 820): Improving Disclosures about Fair Value Measurements (“Update 2010-06”). Update 2010-06 requires new and revised disclosures for recurring or non-recurring fair value measurements, specifically related to significant transfers into and out of Levels 1 and 2, and for purchases, sales, issuances, and settlements in the rollforward of activity for Level 3 fair value measurements. Update 2010-06 also clarifies existing disclosures related to the level of disaggregation and the inputs and valuation techniques used for fair value measurements. The new disclosures and clarifications of existing disclosures about fair value measurements were effective January 1, 2010. However, the disclosures about purchases, sales, issuances, and settlements in the rollforward of activity for Level 3 fair value measurements are not effective until our fiscal year ended September 30, 2012. Our adoption of Update 2010-06 did not, and is not expected to, have a material impact on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

In February 2010, the FASB issued ASC update number 2010-09, which amended ASC Topic 855 (Subsequent Events), effective upon issuance, to remove the requirement that an SEC filer disclose the date through which subsequent events have been evaluated. Our adoption of this guidance was limited to the form and content of disclosures and did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

Infinite Conferencing – April 27, 2007

On April 27, 2007 we completed the acquisition of Infinite Conferencing LLC (“Infinite”), a Georgia limited liability company. The transaction, by which we acquired 100% of the membership interests of Infinite, was structured as a merger by and between Infinite and our wholly-owned subsidiary, Infinite Conferencing, Inc. (the “Infinite Merger”). The primary assets acquired, in addition to Infinite’s ongoing audio and web conferencing operations, were accounts receivable, equipment, internally developed software, customer lists, trademarks, URLs (internet domain names), favorable supplier terms and employment and non-compete agreements. The consideration for the Infinite Merger was a combination of $14 million in cash and restricted shares of our common stock valued at approximately $4.0 million, for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $18.2 million, including transaction costs.

Infinite Conferencing – April 27, 2007 (continued)

The fair value of certain intangible assets (internally developed software, customer lists, trademarks, URLs (internet domain names), favorable contractual terms and employment and non-compete agreements) acquired as part of the Infinite Merger was determined by our management at the time of the merger. This fair value was primarily based on the discounted projected cash flows related to these assets for the three to six years immediately following the merger on a stand-alone basis without regard to the Infinite Merger, as projected by our management and Infinite’s management. The discount rate utilized considered equity risk factors (including small stock risk) as well as risks associated with profitability and working capital, competition, and intellectual property. The projections were adjusted for charges related to fixed assets, working capital and workforce retraining. We have been and are amortizing these assets over useful lives ranging from 3 to 6 years - as of September 30, 2010 the assets with a useful life of three years (favorable contractual terms and employment and non-compete agreements) had been fully amortized and removed from our balance sheet.

The approximately $18.2 million purchase price exceeded the fair values we assigned to Infinite’s tangible and intangible assets (net of liabilities at fair value) by approximately $12.0 million, which we recorded as goodwill as of the purchase date. This initially recorded goodwill was determined to be impaired as of December 31, 2008 and a $900,000 adjustment was made to reduce its carrying value to approximately $11.1 million as of that date.  A similar adjustment of $200,000 was made as of that date to reduce the carrying value of certain intangible assets acquired as part of the Infinite Merger. Furthermore, as discussed in “Testing for Impairment” below, the Infinite goodwill was determined to be further impaired as of December 31, 2009 and a $2.5 million adjustment was made to reduce the carrying value of that goodwill to approximately $8.6 million as of that date. A similar adjustment of $600,000 was made as of that date to reduce the carrying value of certain intangible assets acquired as part of the Infinite Merger. These adjustments, totaling $3.1 million, were reflected in our results of operations for the three months ended December 31, 2009, as a charge for impairment of goodwill and other intangible assets.

Auction Video – March 27, 2007

On March 27, 2007 we completed the acquisition of the assets, technology and patents pending of privately owned Auction Video, Inc., a Utah corporation, and Auction Video Japan, Inc., a Tokyo-Japan corporation (collectively, “Auction Video”). The Auction Video, Inc. transaction was structured as a purchase of assets and the assumption of certain identified liabilities by our wholly-owned U.S. subsidiary, AV Acquisition, Inc. The Auction Video Japan, Inc. transaction was structured as a purchase of 100% of the issued and outstanding capital stock of Auction Video Japan, Inc. The acquisitions were made with a combination of restricted shares of our common stock valued at approximately $1.5 million issued to the stockholders of Auction Video Japan, Inc. and $500,000 cash paid to certain stockholders and creditors of Auction Video, Inc., for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $2.0 million, including transaction costs.

Auction Video – March 27, 2007 (continued)

We allocated the Auction Video purchase price to the identifiable tangible and intangible assets acquired, based on a determination of their reasonable fair value as of the date of the acquisition. The technology and patent pending related to the video ingestion and flash transcoder, the Auction Video customer lists and the consulting and non-compete agreements entered into with the former executives and owners of Auction Video were valued in aggregate at $1,150,000 and have been and are being amortized over various lives between two to five years commencing April 2007 -  as of September 30, 2010 the assets with a useful life of two or three years (customer lists and the consulting and non-compete agreements) had been fully amortized and removed from our balance sheet.

$600,000 was assigned as the value of the video ingestion and flash transcoder, which was already integrated into our DMSP as of the date of the acquisition and was added to that asset’s carrying cost for financial statement purposes, with depreciation over a three-year life commencing April 2007 – see note 3. Future cost savings for Auction Video services to be provided to our customers existing prior to the acquisition were valued at $250,000 and were amortized to cost of sales over a two-year period commencing April 2007.

Subsequent to the Auction Video acquisition, we began pursuing the final approval of the patent pending application and in March 2008 retained the law firm of Hunton & Williams to assist in expediting the patent approval process and to help protect rights related to our UGV (User Generated Video) technology. In April 2008, we revised the original patent application primarily for the purpose of splitting it into two separate applications, which, while related, were being evaluated separately by the U.S. Patent Office (“USPO”). With respect to the claims pending in the first of the two applications, the USPO issued non-final rejections in August 2008, February 2009 and May 2009, as well as final rejections in January 2010 and June 2010. Our responses to certain of these rejections included modifications to certain claims made in the original patent application. In response to the latest rejection we filed a Notice of Appeal with the USPO on November 22, 2010 and we filed an appeal brief with the USPO on February 9, 2011. The USPO has until approximately April 9, 2011 to file their response, after which a decision would be made as to our appeal by a three member panel, either based on the filings or a hearing if requested by us. Regardless of the ultimate outcome of this matter, our management has determined that an adverse decision with respect to this patent application would not have a material adverse effect on our financial position or results of operations. The USPO has taken no formal action with regard to the second of the two applications. Certain of the former owners of Auction Video, Inc. have an interest in proceeds that we may receive under certain circumstances in connection with these patents.

On December 5, 2008 we entered into an agreement whereby one of the former owners of Auction Video Japan, Inc. agreed to shut down the Japan office of Auction Video as well as assume all of our outstanding assets and liabilities connected with that operation, in exchange for non-exclusive rights to sell our products in Japan and be compensated on a commission-only basis. It is the opinion of our management that any further developments with respect to this shut down or the above agreement will not have a material adverse effect on our financial position or results of operations.

Acquired Onstream – December 23, 2004

On December 23, 2004, privately held Onstream Media Corporation (“Acquired Onstream”) was merged with and into our wholly owned subsidiary OSM Acquisition, Inc. (the “Onstream Merger”). At that time, all outstanding shares of Acquired Onstream capital stock and options not already owned by us (representing 74% ownership interest) were converted into restricted shares of our common stock plus options and warrants to purchase our common stock. We also issued common stock options to directors and management as additional compensation at the time of and for the Onstream Merger, accounted for at the time in accordance with Accounting Principles Board Opinion 25 (which accounting pronouncement has since been superseded by the ASC).

Acquired Onstream was a development stage company founded in 2001 that began working on a feature rich digital asset management service offered on an application service provider (“ASP”) basis, to allow corporations to better manage their digital rich media without the major capital expense for the hardware, software and additional staff necessary to build their own digital asset management solution. This service was intended to be offered via the Digital Media Services Platform (“DMSP”), which was initially designed and managed by Science Applications International Corporation (“SAIC”), one of the country's foremost IT security firms, providing services to all branches of the federal government as well as leading corporations.

The primary asset acquired in the Onstream Merger was the partially completed DMSP, recorded at fair value as of the December 23, 2004 closing, in accordance with the Business Combinations topic of the ASC. The fair value was primarily based on the discounted projected cash flows related to this asset for the five years immediately following the acquisition on a stand-alone basis without regard to the Onstream Merger, as projected at the time of the acquisition by our management and Acquired Onstream’s management. The discount rate utilized considered equity risk factors (including small stock risk and bridge/IPO stage risk) plus risks associated with profitability/working capital, competition, and intellectual property. The projections were adjusted for charges related to fixed assets, working capital and workforce retraining.

The approximately $10.0 million purchase price we paid for 100% of Acquired Onstream exceeded the fair values we assigned to Acquired Onstream’s tangible and intangible assets (net of liabilities at fair value) by approximately $8.4 million, which we recorded as goodwill as of the purchase date. This initially recorded goodwill was determined to be impaired as of December 31, 2008 and a $4.3 million adjustment was made to reduce the carrying value of that goodwill to approximately $4.1 million as of that date. Furthermore, as discussed in “Testing for Impairment” below, the Acquired Onstream goodwill was determined to be further impaired as of September 30, 2010 and a $1.6 million adjustment was made to reduce the carrying value of that goodwill to approximately $2.5 million as of that date.

Testing for Impairment

The Intangibles – Goodwill and Other topic of the ASC, which addresses the financial accounting and reporting standards for goodwill and other intangible assets subsequent to their acquisition, requires that goodwill be tested for impairment on a periodic basis. Although other intangible assets are being amortized to expense over their estimated useful lives, the unamortized balances are still subject to review and adjustment for impairment.

NOTE 2: GOODWILL AND OTHER ACQUISITION-RELATED INTANGIBLE ASSETS (Continued)

Testing for Impairment (continued)

There is a two step process for impairment testing of goodwill. The first step of this test, used to identify potential impairment, compares the fair value of a reporting unit with its carrying amount, including goodwill. The second step, if necessary, measures the amount of the impairment. We performed impairment tests on Infinite, EDNet and Acquired Onstream as of December 31, 2009. We assessed the fair value of the net assets of these reporting units by considering the projected cash flows and by analysis of comparable companies, including such factors as the relationship of the comparable companies’ revenues to their respective market values. Based on these factors, we concluded that there was no impairment of the assets of Acquired Onstream or EDNet as of that date. However, we determined that Infinite’s goodwill and certain of its intangible assets were impaired as of that date and based on that condition, a $3.1 million adjustment was made to reduce the carrying value of goodwill as of that date, which we reflected as a non-cash expense for the three months ended December 31, 2009.

As the result of the decline in the price of our common stock from $1.86 per share as of March 31, 2010 to $1.03 as of June 30, 2010, it appeared that our market value (after appropriate adjustments for control premium and other considerations) was probably less than our net book value as of June 30, 2010. However, we concluded that the decline in market value as of June 30, 2010 was not of sufficient duration nor was it otherwise indicative of a triggering event that would require an interim impairment review. However, this decline continued after June 30, 2010 and resulted in a common stock price of $1.04 as of September 30, 2010 (and $0.76 as of December 23, 2010).  As a result, we determined that it was appropriate for us to evaluate whether our goodwill and other intangible assets were impaired as of September 30, 2010. We performed impairment tests on Infinite, EDNet and Acquired Onstream as of September 30, 2010, using the same methodologies discussed above.  Based on these factors, we concluded that there was no impairment of the assets of Infinite or EDNet as of that date. However, we determined that Acquired Onstream’s goodwill was impaired as of that date and based on that condition, a $1.6 million adjustment was made to reduce the carrying value of goodwill as of that date.

The market price of our common stock increased from $0.76 as of December 23, 2010 to $0.80 as of December 31, 2010 and $1.06 as of February 4, 2011. Based on this recovery of the market value of our stock as compared to the valuations that were considered as part of the September 30, 2010 valuation, we have concluded that there are no triggering events that would require an interim impairment review as of December 31, 2010.

The valuations of Infinite, EDNet and Acquired Onstream incorporate our management’s estimates of future sales and operating income, which estimates in the cases of Infinite and Acquired Onstream are dependent on products (audio and web conferencing and the DMSP, respectively) from which significant sales and/or sales increases may be required to support that valuation. Furthermore, even if our market value were to exceed our net book value in the future, annual reviews for impairment in future periods may result in future periodic write-downs.  Tests for impairment between annual tests may be required if events occur or circumstances change that would more likely than not reduce the fair value of the net carrying amount.

Depreciation and amortization expense for property and equipment was approximately $257,000 and $365,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2010 and 2009, respectively.

As part of the Onstream Merger (see note 2), we became obligated under a contract with SAIC, under which SAIC would build a platform that eventually, albeit after further extensive design and re-engineering by us, led to the DMSP. This platform was the primary asset included in our purchase of Acquired Onstream, and was recorded at an initial amount of approximately $2.7 million. The SAIC contract terminated by mutual agreement of the parties on June 30, 2008. Although cancellation of the contract released SAIC to offer what was identified as the “Onstream Media Solution” directly or indirectly to third parties, we do not expect this right to result in a material adverse impact on future DMSP sales.

The DMSP is comprised of four separate “products”- transcoding, storage, search/retrieval and distribution. A limited version of the DMSP, with three of the four products, was first placed in service in November 2005. “Store and Stream” was the first version of the DMSP sold to the general public, starting in October 2006.

On March 27, 2007 we completed the acquisition of Auction Video – see note 2. The assets acquired included a video ingestion and flash transcoder, which was already integrated into the DMSP as of that date. Based on our determination of the fair value of the transcoder at that date, $600,000 was added to the DMSP’s carrying cost, which additional cost was depreciated over a three-year life commencing April 2007.

NOTE 3:  PROPERTY AND EQUIPMENT (Continued)

On March 31, 2008 we agreed to pay $300,000 for a perpetual license for certain digital asset management software, which we currently utilize to provide our automatic meta-tagging services, in addition to and in accordance with a limited term license that we purchased in 2007 for $281,250. At the time of this purchase, in addition to continuing to use this software to provide our automatic meta-tagging services, we expanded our use of this software in providing our core DMSP services. Therefore, we recorded a portion of this purchase, plus a portion of the remaining unamortized 2007 purchase amount, as an aggregate $243,750 increase in the DMSP’s carrying cost, such additional cost being depreciated over five years commencing April 2008.

In connection with the development of “Streaming Publisher”, a second version of the DMSP with additional functionality, we have capitalized as part of the DMSP approximately $799,000 of employee compensation, payments to contract programmers and related costs as of December 31, 2010, including $25,000 capitalized during the three months ended December 31, 2010, $314,000 during the year ended September 30, 2010, $274,000 during the year ended September 30, 2009 and $186,000 during the year ended September 30, 2008. As of December 31, 2010, approximately $724,000 of these Streaming Publisher costs had been placed in service and are being depreciated primarily over five years. The remainder of the costs not in service relate primarily to new versions and/or releases of the DMSP under development. Streaming Publisher is a stand-alone product based on a different architecture than Store and Stream and is a primary building block of the MP365 platform, discussed below.

Other capitalized internal use software as of December 31, 2010 includes approximately $705,000 of employee compensation and payments to contract programmers for the development of the MP365 platform, which enables the creation of on-line virtual marketplaces and trade shows utilizing many of our other technologies such as DMSP, webcasting, UGC and conferencing. Approximately $122,000 was capitalized during the three months ended December 31, 2010, $435,000 during the year ended September 30, 2010 and $148,000 during the year ended September 30, 2009. This excludes related costs for the development of Streaming Publisher, as discussed above. $297,000 of these MP365 costs were first placed in service as of August 1, 2010.

Equipment Notes

During the period from June 3, 2008 through July 8, 2008 we received an aggregate of $1.0 million from seven accredited individuals and other entities (the “Investors”), under a software and equipment financing arrangement. This included $50,000 received from CCJ Trust (“CCJ”). CCJ is a trust for the adult children of Mr. Charles Johnston, one of our directors, and he disclaims any beneficial ownership interest in CCJ. We issued notes to those Investors (the “Equipment Notes”), which mature on June 3, 2011 and are collateralized by specifically designated software and equipment owned by us with a cost basis of approximately $1.5 million, as well as a subordinated lien on certain other of our assets to the extent that the designated software and equipment, or other software and equipment added to the collateral at a later date, is not considered sufficient security for the loan.

The Investors initially received 1,667 restricted ONSM common shares for each $100,000 lent to us, and also receive interest at 12% per annum. Interest is payable every 6 months in cash or, at our option, in restricted ONSM common shares, based on a conversion price equal to seventy-five percent (75%) of the average ONSM closing price for the thirty (30) trading days prior to the date the applicable payment is due.

The Equipment Notes may be converted to restricted ONSM common shares at any time prior to their maturity date, at the Investors’ option, based on a conversion price equal to seventy-five percent (75%) of the average ONSM closing price for the thirty (30) trading days prior to the date of conversion, but in no event may the conversion price be less than $4.80 per share. In the event the Equipment Notes are converted prior to maturity, interest on the Equipment Notes for the remaining unexpired loan period will be due and payable in additional restricted ONSM common shares in accordance with the same formula for interest payments as described above.

We may prepay the Equipment Notes at any time upon ten (10) days' prior written notice to the Investors during which time any or all of the Investors may choose to convert the Equipment Notes held by them.  In the event of such repayment, all interest accrued and due for the remaining unexpired loan period is due and payable and may be paid in cash or restricted ONSM common shares in accordance with the above formula.

The outstanding principal is due on demand in the event a payment default is uncured ten (10) business days after written notice. Investors holding in excess of 50% of the outstanding principal amount of the Equipment Notes may declare a default and may take steps to amend or otherwise modify the terms of the Equipment Notes and related security agreement.

Fees were paid to placement agents and finders for their services in connection with the Equipment Notes in aggregate of 16,875 restricted ONSM common shares and $31,500 paid in cash. These 16,875 shares, plus the 16,667 shares issued to the investors (as discussed above) had a fair market value of approximately $186,513. The value of these 33,542 shares, plus the $31,500 cash fees and $9,160 paid for legal fees and other issuance costs related to the Equipment Notes, were reflected as a $227,173 discount against the Equipment Notes and are being amortized as interest expense over the three year term of the Equipment Notes. The effective interest rate of the Equipment Notes is approximately 19.5% per annum, excluding the potential effect of a premium to market prices if payment of interest is made in common shares instead of cash. The unamortized portion of this discount was $38,778 and $57,144 at December 31 and September 30, 2010, respectively.

NOTE 4: DEBT (Continued)

Convertible Debentures (continued)

CCJ Note

On December 29, 2009, we entered into an agreement with CCJ whereby a previously received $200,000 advance was converted to an unsecured subordinated note payable (the “CCJ Note”) at a rate of 8% interest per annum in equal monthly installments of principal and interest for 48 months plus a $100,000 principal balloon at maturity, although none of those payments were subsequently made by us. To resolve this payment default, the CCJ Note was amended in January 2011 to prospectively increase the interest rate to 10% per annum, payable quarterly, and to require two principal payments of $100,000 each on December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2012, respectively. This amendment also called for our cash payment of the previously accrued interest in the amount of $16,263 on or before January 31, 2011. The remaining principal balance of the CCJ Note may be converted at any time into our common shares at the greater of (i) the previous 30 day market value or (ii) $2.00 per share (which was $3.00 per share prior to the January 2011 renegotiation).
 
In conjunction with and in consideration of the December 29, 2009 note transaction, the 35,000 shares of Series A-12 held by CCJ at that date were exchanged for 35,000 shares of Series A-13 plus four-year warrants for the purchase of 29,167 ONSM common shares at $3.00 per share. In conjunction with and in consideration of the January 2011 note amendment, it was agreed that certain terms of the 35,000 shares of Series A-13 held by CCJ at that date would be modified – see note 6.
 
The effective interest rate of the CCJ Note prior to the January 2011 amendment was approximately 47.4% per annum, including the Black-Scholes value of the warrants of $32,518 plus the $108,500 value of the increased number of common shares underlying the Series A-13 shares versus the Series A-12 shares (see note 6), which total of $141,018 we recorded as a debt discount. The effective rate of 47.4% per annum also included 11.2% per annum related to dividends that would have accrued to CCJ as a result of the later mandatory conversion date of the Series A-13 shares versus the mandatory conversion date of the Series A-12 shares. Following the January 2011 amendment, the effective interest rate of the CCJ Note increased to approximately 78.5% per annum, to reflect the value of the increased value of common shares underlying the Series A-13 shares as a result of the modified terms as well as the increase in the periodic cash interest rate from 8% to 10% per annum. The effective rate of 78.5% per annum also includes 9.3% per annum related to dividends that could accrue to CCJ as a result of the later mandatory conversion date of the Series A-13 shares as a result of the modified terms.

The unamortized portion of the debt discount, which is being amortized as interest expense over the original four-year term of the CCJ Note, was $105,763 and $114,577 at December 31 and September 30, 2010, respectively. Effective January 2011, the remaining unamortized discount, plus additional discount arising from the modified terms, will be amortized as interest expense over the modified two-year term of the CCJ Note.

Greenberg Note

On January 13, 2010 we borrowed $250,000 from Greenberg Capital (“Greenberg”) under the terms of an unsecured subordinated convertible note (the “Greenberg Note”), which was repayable in principal installments of $13,000 per month beginning March 1, 2010. Although the note called for a final balloon payment on December 31, 2010, including remaining principal and all accrued but unpaid interest (at 10% per annum), it also provided that if we successfully concluded a subsequent financing of debt or equity in excess of $500,000 during the note term, the proceeds of such financing would be used to pay off any remaining balance. Accordingly, following the sale of common and preferred shares under the LPC Purchase Agreement (see note 1), we repaid the $159,000 principal balance due under the Greenberg Note in cash on October 1, 2010. The unamortized portion of the debt discount was $9,911 at September 30, 2010, which was written off to interest expense upon the repayment of the loan on October 1, 2010.

Wilmington Notes

During February 2010 we borrowed an aggregate of $500,000 from three entities (the “Wilmington Investors”) under the terms of unsecured subordinated convertible notes (the “Wilmington Notes”), which were issued on a pari passu basis with the Greenberg Note and were repayable in aggregate principal installments of $26,000 per month beginning April 18, 2010. Although the notes called for final balloon payments on February 18, 2011, including remaining principal and all accrued but unpaid interest (at 10% per annum), they also provided that if we successfully concluded a subsequent financing of debt or equity in excess of $750,000 during the note term, the proceeds of such financing would be used to pay off any remaining balances. Accordingly, following the sale of common and preferred shares under the LPC Purchase Agreement (see note 1), we repaid the $344,000 principal balance due under the Wilmington Notes on October 1, 2010 by a cash payment of $238,756 plus the issuance of 137,901 common shares, which cash and shares also included the settlement of all cash and non-cash interest and fees otherwise due.

Lehmann Note

On May 3, 2010 we borrowed $250,000 from an individual (“Lehmann”) under the terms of an unsecured subordinated convertible note (the “Lehmann Note”), which was repayable in principal installments of $13,000 per month beginning July 3, 2010. Although the note called for a final balloon payment on May 3, 2011, including remaining principal and all accrued but unpaid interest (at 10% per annum), it also provided that if we successfully concluded a subsequent financing of debt or equity in excess of $1,000,000 during the note term, the proceeds of such financing would be used to pay off any remaining balance. Accordingly, following the sale of common and preferred shares under the LPC Purchase Agreement (see note 1), we repaid the $172,000 principal balance due under the Lehmann Note on January 13, 2011 by the issuance of 200,000 common shares, which shares also included the settlement of all cash and non-cash interest and fees otherwise due, except as otherwise stated below.

Convertible Debentures (continued)

Lehmann Note (continued)

The Lehmann Note provided for (i) our prepayment of the first six months of interest in the form of shares, based on our closing share price on the funding date of the Lehmann Note, (ii) our issuance of 37,500 unregistered common shares upon receipt of the funds and (iii) our issuance of 25,000 unregistered common shares if the loan was still outstanding after 6 months, although in the event the Lehmann Note was prepaid after the first six months, the second tranche of 25,000 unregistered common shares would be cancelled on a pro-rata basis, to the extent the second six month time period had not elapsed at the time of such payoff. We did not issue the second tranche of 25,000 shares but we did issue the pro-rata earned portion, 9,600 shares, at the time of the January 13, 2011 payoff.

The effective rate of the Lehmann Note was approximately 77.0% per annum, assuming a six month loan term and excluding the finder’s fees payable by us to a third party in cash and equal to 7% of the borrowed amount. The value of the 43,142 shares initially issued to Lehmann for fees and prepaid interest plus the finder’s fees of $17,500, were reflected as a $105,509 discount against the Lehmann Note and was being amortized as interest expense primarily over the initial six month term of the Lehmann Note. The unamortized portion of the debt discount was $5,613 and $26,642 at December 31 and September 30, 2010, respectively.

The Lehmann Note was convertible into common stock at Lehmann’s option based on our closing share price on the funding date of the Lehmann Note, which was $2.04.

Rockridge Note

A portion of the Rockridge Note ($996,334 face value, which is $748,599 net, after deducting the applicable discount) is also convertible into ONSM common shares, as discussed below, and classified under the non-current portion of Convertible Debentures, net of discount, on our December 31, 2010 balance sheet. This convertible portion was $1,016,922 ($736,699 net of discount) as of September 30, 2010.

Line of Credit Arrangement

In December 2007, we entered into a line of credit arrangement (the “Line”) with a financial institution (the “Lender”) under which we could borrow up to an aggregate of $1.0 million for working capital, collateralized by our accounts receivable and certain other related assets. In August 2008 the maximum allowable borrowing amount under the Line was increased to $1.6 million and in December 2009 this amount was again increased to $2.0 million.

The outstanding balance bears interest at 13.5% per annum, adjustable based on changes in prime after December 28, 2009 (was prime plus 8% per annum through December 2, 2008 and prime plus 11% from that date through December 28, 2009), payable monthly in arrears. Effective December 28, 2009, we also incur a weekly monitoring fee of one twentieth of a percent (0.05%) of the borrowing limit, payable monthly in arrears.

We paid initial origination and commitment fees in December 2007 aggregating $20,015, an additional commitment fee in August 2008 of $6,000 related to the increase in the lending limit for the remainder of the year, a commitment fee of $16,000 in December 2008 related to the continuation of the increased Line for an additional year, a commitment fee of $20,000 in December 2009 related to the continuation of the Line for an additional year as well as an increase in the lending limit and a commitment fee of $20,000 in December 2010 related to the continuation of the Line for an additional year. An additional commitment fee of one percent (1%) of the maximum allowable borrowing amount will be due for any subsequent annual renewal after December 28, 2011. These origination and commitment fees (plus other fees paid to Lender) are recorded by us as debt discount and amortized as interest expense over the remaining term of the loan. The unamortized portion of this discount was $18,636 and zero as of December 31 and September 30, 2010, respectively.

NOTE 4: DEBT (Continued)

Notes and Leases Payable (continued)

Line of Credit Arrangement (continued)

The outstanding principal balance due under the Line may be repaid by us at any time, but no later than December 28, 2011, which may be extended by us for an extra year, subject to compliance with all loan terms, including no material adverse change, as well as concurrence of the Lender. We will incur a charge equal to two percent (2%) of the borrowing limit if we terminate the Line before June 28, 2011 and a charge equal to one percent (1%) of the borrowing limit if we terminate the Line after that date but before December 28, 2011. The outstanding principal is due on demand in the event a payment default is uncured five (5) days after written notice.
  
The Line is also subject to us maintaining an adequate level of receivables, based on certain formulas, as well as our compliance with a quarterly debt service coverage covenant (the “Covenant”), effective with the September 30, 2010 quarter. We were in compliance with this Covenant for the September 30, 2010 quarter. The Covenant, as defined in the applicable loan documents, requires that our net income or loss, adjusted to remove all non-cash expenses as well as cash interest expense, be equal to or greater than that same cash interest expense. Calculated strictly on this basis, we were in compliance with the Covenant for the three months ended December 31, 2010. The Lender has raised the question as to whether the net income or loss used in the Covenant calculation should also be adjusted to remove non-cash revenues (i.e. the $138,661 gain for adjustment of derivative liability to fair value). Although an adjustment for non-cash revenues is not specified in the applicable loan documents, if this adjustment to remove non-cash revenues were made, we would not be in compliance with that Covenant for the quarter ended December 31, 2010. In its February 14, 2011 communication to us, the Lender indicated that it believed that we had failed to comply with the Covenant and that it would construe such situation to be a default if not corrected within 30 days. The Lender also indicated that, while it reserves all its rights and remedies provided in the loan agreement, it is not their intention to accelerate the repayment of this loan.

The Lender must approve any additional debt incurred by us, other than debt incurred in the ordinary course of business (which includes equipment financing). Accordingly the Lender has approved the $1.0 million Equipment Notes we issued in June and July 2008, the $200,000 CCJ Note we issued in December 2009, the $250,000 Greenberg Note we issued in January 2010, the $500,000 Wilmington Notes we issued in February 2010 and the $250,000 Lehmann Note we issued in May 2010, all as discussed above, and the $2.0 million Rockridge Note we issued in April 2009 and amended in September 2009, as discussed below.
  
Mr. Leon Nowalsky, a member of our Board of Directors, is also a founder and board member of the Lender.

Rockridge Note

In April 2009 we received $750,000 from Rockridge Capital Holdings, LLC (“Rockridge”), an entity controlled by one of our largest shareholders, in accordance with the terms of a Note and Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Rockridge Agreement”) that we entered into with Rockridge dated April 14, 2009. In June 2009, we received an additional $250,000 from Rockridge in accordance with the Rockridge Agreement, for total borrowings thereunder of $1.0 million. On September 14, 2009, we entered into Amendment Number 1 to the Agreement (the “Amendment”), as well as an Allonge to the Note (the “Allonge”), which allowed us to borrow up to an additional $1.0 million from Rockridge, resulting in cumulative allowable borrowings of up to $2.0 million. We borrowed $500,000 of the additional $1.0 million on September 18, 2009 and the remaining $500,000 on October 20, 2009.

In connection with this transaction, we issued a Note (the “Rockridge Note”), which is collateralized by a first priority lien on all of our assets, such lien subordinated only to the extent higher priority liens on assets, primarily accounts receivable and certain designated software and equipment, are held by certain of our other lenders. We also entered into a Security Agreement with Rockridge that contains certain covenants and other restrictions with respect to the collateral.

Rockridge Note (continued)

The Rockridge Note had an outstanding principal balance of $1,492,668 and $1,533,843 at December 31 and September 30, 2010, respectively. The note is repayable in equal monthly installments of $41,409 extending through August 14, 2013 (the “Maturity Date”), which installments include principal (except for a $500,000 balloon payable on the Maturity Date) plus interest (at 12% per annum) on the remaining unpaid balance. Monthly payments of $45,202 were made from November 14, 2009 through October 14, 2010, at which time the payment schedule was corrected to (i) omit the November 2010 payment and (ii) start with the new payment amount on December 14, 2010.

The Rockridge Agreement, as amended, also provides that Rockridge may receive an origination fee upon not less than sixty-one (61) days written notice to us, payable by our issuance of 366,667 restricted shares of our common stock (the “Shares”). The Rockridge Agreement provides that on the Maturity Date we shall pay Rockridge up to a maximum of $75,000, based on the sum of (i) the cash difference between the per share value of $1.20 (the “Minimum Per Share Value”) and the average sale price for all previously sold Shares (whether such number is positive or negative) multiplied by the number of sold Shares and (ii) for the Shares which were not previously sold by Rockridge, the cash difference between the Minimum Per Share Value and the market value of the Shares at the Maturity Date (whether such number is positive or negative) multiplied by the number of unsold Shares, up to a maximum shortfall amount of $75,000 in the aggregate for items (i) and (ii). We have recorded no accrual for this matter on our financial statements as of December 31, 2010, since we believe that the variables affecting any eventual liability cannot be reasonably estimated. However, if the closing ONSM share price of $1.06 per share on February 4, 2011 was used as a basis of calculation, the required payment would be approximately $59,000.

Legal fees totaling $55,337 were paid or accrued by us in connection with the Rockridge Agreement. The 366,667 origination fee Shares discussed above are considered earned by Rockridge and had a fair market value of approximately $626,000 at the date of the Rockridge Agreement or the Amendment, as applicable. The value of these Shares plus the legal fees paid or accrued were reflected as a $681,337 discount against the Rockridge Note (as well as a corresponding increase in additional paid-in capital for the value of the Shares), which is being amortized as interest expense over the term of the Rockridge Note. The unamortized portion of this discount was $380,241 and $423,308 as of December 31 and September 30, 2010, respectively.

The effective interest rate of the Rockridge Note was approximately 44.3% per annum, until the September 2009 amendment, when it was reduced to approximately 28.0% per annum. These rates exclude the potential effect of a premium to market prices if the balloon payment is satisfied in common shares instead of cash as well as the potential effect of any appreciation in the value of the Shares at the time of issuance beyond their value at the date of the Rockridge Agreement or the Amendment, as applicable.

The above conversions are subject to a minimum of one month between conversion notices (unless such conversion amount exceeds $25,000) and will use a conversion price of eighty percent (80%) of the fair market value of the average closing bid price for our common stock for the twenty (20) days of trading on The NASDAQ Capital Market (or such other exchange or market on which our common shares are trading) prior to such Rockridge notice, but such conversion price will not be less than $2.40 per share.  We will not effect any conversion of the Rockridge Note, to the extent Rockridge and Frederick DeLuca, after giving effect to such conversion, would beneficially own in excess of 9.9% of our outstanding common stock (the “Beneficial Ownership Limitation”).  The Beneficial Ownership Limitation may be waived by Rockridge upon not less than sixty-one (61) days prior written notice to us unless such waiver would result in a violation of the NASDAQ shareholder approval rules.

Furthermore, in the event of any conversions of principal to ONSM shares by Rockridge (i) the $500,000 balloon payment will be reduced by the amount of any such conversions and (ii) the interest portion of the monthly payments under the Rockridge Note for the remaining months after any such conversion will be adjusted to reflect the outstanding principal being immediately reduced for amount of the conversion. We may prepay the Rockridge Note at any time. The outstanding principal is due on demand in the event a payment default is uncured ten (10) business days after Rockridge’s written notice to us.

Capitalized Equipment Leases

We are obligated under a capital lease for telephone equipment, with an outstanding principal balance of $25,599 and $27,328 as of December 31 and September 30, 2010, respectively. The balance is payable in monthly payments of $828 through January 2014, which includes interest at approximately 11% per annum.

Funding Commitment Letters

During 2009, we received funding commitment letters (“Letters”) from certain entities agreeing to provide us funding under certain terms on or before December 31, 2010. The value of shares issued as consideration for the Letters was reflected on our balance sheet as a reduction of the carrying value of notes payable, pending inclusion as part of discount for any connected financing. However, we did not obtain financing under the Letters before they expired and accordingly this $14,000 balance on our September 30, 2010 balance sheet was written off as interest expense for the three months ended December 31, 2010.

NOTE 5:  COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

Narrowstep acquisition termination and litigation – On May 29, 2008, we entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) to acquire Narrowstep, Inc. (“Narrowstep”). The terms of the Merger Agreement, as amended, allowed that if the acquisition did not close on or prior to November 30, 2008, the Merger Agreement could be terminated by either us or Narrowstep at any time after that date provided that the terminating party was not responsible for the delay. On March 18, 2009, we terminated the Merger Agreement and the acquisition of Narrowstep.

On December 1, 2009, Narrowstep filed a complaint against us in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware, alleging breach of contract, fraud and three additional counts and is seeking (i) $14 million in damages, (ii) reimbursement of an unspecified amount for all of its costs associated with the negotiation and drafting of the Merger Agreement, including but not limited to attorney and consulting fees, (iii) the return of Narrowstep’s equipment alleged to be in our possession, (iv) reimbursement of an unspecified amount for all of its attorneys fees, costs and interest associated with this action and (v) any further relief determined as fair by the court. After reviewing the complaint document, we have determined that Narrowstep had no basis in fact or in law for any claim and accordingly, this matter was not reflected as a liability on our financial statements. On December 30, 2010 Narrowstep counsel advised the Court in writing that Narrowstep had reached an agreement in principle with us to dismiss their lawsuit with prejudice, provided that both parties executed a mutual release. Under this mutual release, which has been agreed to in principle by both parties but is still being finalized, no further actions will be filed against each other or affiliated parties in connection with this matter. This resolution of this matter will not have a material adverse impact on our future financial position or results of operations.

Other legal proceedings – We are involved in other litigation and regulatory investigations arising in the ordinary course of business. While the ultimate outcome of these matters is not presently determinable, it is the opinion of our management that the resolution of these outstanding claims will not have a material adverse effect on our financial position or results of operations.

NASDAQ listing compliance issue - On June 24, 2010, we received a letter from NASDAQ stating that we are currently not compliant with NASDAQ’s minimum audit committee size requirement of three independent members, as set forth in Listing Rule 5605 (c) (2) (a) (the “Audit Committee Rule”), for which compliance is necessary in order to be eligible for continued listing on The NASDAQ Capital Market. Unless we regain compliance with the Audit Committee Rule as of the earlier of our next annual shareholders’ meeting or June 5, 2011, our common stock will be subject to immediate delisting. However, during the compliance period, our stock will continue to be listed and eligible for trading on The NASDAQ Capital Market.

On June 14, 2010, we were notified that Mr. Robert J. Wussler, who was then a director and a member of our audit committee, had passed away on June 5, 2010. He has not at the present time been replaced on the audit committee, which currently has two independent members. We are in the process of evaluating independent candidates to fill the vacancy left as a result of Mr. Wussler’s passing, both on the Board as well as the audit committee. We will make that selection as soon as possible.

NOTE 5:  COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES (Continued)
 
NASDAQ listing compliance issue (continued) - Our past operations have been financed primarily through the issuance of equity and debt and our access to funding under the LPC Purchase Agreement requires our common stock to be traded on NASDAQ or a similar national exchange. However, based on our satisfactory recent history of maintaining the effectiveness of our registration statements and our NASDAQ listing, as well as stockholders’ equity in excess of the NASDAQ listing standards as of December 31, 2010, we have concluded that the resolution of this matter will not have a material adverse effect on our financial position or results of operations.
 
Employment contracts and severance – On September 27, 2007, our Compensation Committee and Board of Directors approved three-year employment agreements with Messrs. Randy Selman (President and CEO), Alan Saperstein (COO and Treasurer), Robert Tomlinson (Chief Financial Officer), Clifford Friedland (Senior Vice President Business Development) and David Glassman (Senior Vice President Marketing), collectively referred to as “the Executives”. On May 15, 2008 and August 11, 2009 our Compensation Committee and Board approved certain corrections and modifications to those agreements, which are reflected in the discussion of the terms of those agreements below. The agreements provide that the initial term shall automatically be extended for successive one (1) year terms thereafter unless (a) the parties mutually agree in writing to alter the terms of the agreement; or (b) one or both of the parties exercises their right, pursuant to various provisions of the agreement, to terminate the employment relationship.
 
The agreements provide initial annual base salaries of $253,000 for Mr. Selman, $230,000 for Mr. Saperstein, $207,230 for Mr. Tomlinson and $197,230 for Messrs. Friedland and Glassman, plus 10% annual increases through December 27, 2008 and 5% per year thereafter. In addition, each of the Executives receives an auto allowance payment of $1,000 per month, a “retirement savings” payment of $1,500 per month and an annual reimbursement of dues or charitable donations up to $5,000.  We also pay insurance premiums for the Executives, including medical, life and disability coverage. These agreements contain certain non-disclosure and non-competition provisions and we have agreed to indemnify the Executives in certain circumstances.
 
Under the terms of the above employment agreements, upon a termination subsequent to a change of control, termination without cause or constructive termination, each as defined in the agreements, we would be obligated to pay each of the Executives an amount equal to three times the Executive’s base salary plus full benefits for a period of the lesser of (i) three years from the date of termination or (ii) the date of termination until a date one year after the end of the initial employment contract term. We may defer the payment of all or part of this obligation for up to six months, to the extent required by Internal Revenue Code Section 409A. In addition, if the five day average closing price of the common stock is greater than or equal to $6.00 per share on the date of any termination or change in control, all options previously granted the Executive(s) will be cancelled, with all underlying shares (vested or unvested) issued to the executive, and we will pay all related taxes for the Executive(s).  If the five-day average closing price of the common stock is less than $6.00 per share on the date of any termination or change in control, the options will remain exercisable under the original terms.

NOTE 5:  COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES (Continued)
 
Employment contracts and severance (continued) – Under the terms of the above employment agreements, we may terminate an Executive’s employment upon his death or disability or with or without cause. To the extent that an Executive is terminated for cause, no severance benefits are due him. If an employment agreement is terminated as a result of the Executive’s death, his estate will receive one year base salary plus any bonus or other compensation amount or benefit then payable or that would have been otherwise considered vested or earned under the agreement during the one-year period subsequent to the time of his death. If an employment agreement is terminated as a result of the Executive’s disability, as defined in the agreement, he is entitled to compensation in accordance with our disability compensation for senior executives to include compensation for at least 180 days, plus any bonus or other compensation amount or benefit then payable or that would have been otherwise considered vested or earned under the agreement during the one-year period subsequent to the time of his disability.
 
The above employment agreements also provide that in the event we are sold for a Company Sale Price that represents at least $6.00 per share (adjusted for recapitalization including but not limited to splits and reverse splits), the Executives will receive, as a group, cash compensation of twelve percent (12.0%) of the Company Sale Price, payable in immediately available funds at the time of closing such transaction. The Company Sale Price is defined as the number of Equivalent Common Shares outstanding at the time we are sold multiplied by the price per share paid in such Company Sale transaction. The Equivalent Common Shares are defined as the sum of (i) the number of common shares issued and outstanding, (ii) the common stock equivalent shares related to paid for but not converted preferred shares or other convertible securities and (iii) the number of common shares underlying “in-the-money” warrants and options, such sum multiplied by the market price per share and then reduced by the proceeds payable upon exercise of the “in-the-money” warrants and options, all determined as of the date of the above employment agreements but the market price per share used for this purpose to be no less than $6.00. The 12.0% is allocated in the employment agreements as two and one-half percent (2.5%) each to Messrs. Selman, Saperstein, Friedland and Glassman and two percent (2.0%) to Mr. Tomlinson.
 
On January 14, 2011 our Compensation Committee agreed that it would approve amendments to the executive employment agreements, as well as amending the same terms as applicable to the Board members (see below), allowing for all or part of such compensation to be paid in shares at the recipient’s option, at any time if our stock is trading above $6.00 per share, without requiring that we be sold. The issuance of such shares would be to the extent permitted by applicable law and subject to shareholder and/or any other required regulatory approvals.
 
Other compensation – In addition to the 12% allocation of the Company Sale Price to the Executives, as discussed above, on August 11, 2009 our Compensation Committee determined that an additional three percent (3.0%) of the Company Sale Price would be allocated, on the same terms, with two percent (2.0%) allocated to the then four outside Directors (0.5% each), as a supplement to provide appropriate compensation for ongoing services as a director and as a termination fee, one-half percent (0.5%) allocated to one additional executive-level employee and the remaining one-half percent (0.5%) to be allocated by the Board and our management at a later date, which will be primarily to compensate other executives not having employment contracts, but may also include additional allocation to some or all of these five senior Executives. On June 5, 2010, one of the four outside Directors passed away and we are still in the process of evaluating independent candidates to fill the resulting Board vacancy.

NOTE 5:  COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES (Continued)
 
Consultant contracts – We entered into a consulting contract, effective June 1, 2009, with an individual for executive management services to be performed for our Infinite and webcasting divisions. This contract calls for base compensation of $175,000, plus $25,000 commission, per year. In addition we pay a travel allowance of $5,000 per month for up to the first thirteen months and a one-time $15,000 moving expenses reimbursement. The contract is renewable by mutual agreement of the parties with six months notice to the other. Termination of the contract without cause after the end of the two-year contract term requires six months notice (which includes a three month severance period) from the terminating party, although termination with cause requires no notice.
 
We have entered into various agreements for financial consulting and advisory services which, if not terminated as allowed by the terms of such agreements, will require the issuance after December 31, 2010 of approximately 151,000 unregistered shares and options to purchase approximately 300,000 common shares at $1.50 per share. The services related to these shares and options will be provided over periods up to 12 months, and will result in a professional fees expense of approximately $359,000 over that service period, based on the $1.06 market value of an ONSM common share as of February 4, 2011.
 
Lease commitments – We are obligated under operating leases for our five offices (one each in Pompano Beach, Florida, San Francisco, California and Colorado Springs, Colorado and two in the New York City area), which call for monthly payments totaling approximately $57,000. The leases have expiration dates ranging from 2011 to 2013 (after considering our rights of termination) and in most cases provide for renewal options. Most of the leases have annual rent escalation provisions. The future minimum lease payments required under the non-cancelable portion of these leases (including the tentatively agreed on Pompano lease terms, as described below), is approximately $1,199,000. In addition to these commitments, we also lease equipment space at co-location or other equipment housing facilities in South Florida; Atlanta, Georgia; Jersey City, New Jersey; San Francisco, California and Colorado Springs, Colorado under varying terms. An aggregate approximately $8,000 per month related to these facilities is classified by us as rental expense with the balance of our payments to these facilities classified as costs of sales – see discussion of bandwidth and co-location facilities purchase commitment discussion below. Total rental expense (including executory costs) for all operating leases was approximately $208,000 and $203,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2010 and 2009, respectively.
 
The three-year operating lease for our principal executive offices in Pompano Beach, Florida expired September 15, 2010. The monthly base rental is currently approximately $23,400 (including our share of property taxes and common area expenses). We are currently in negotiations to extend this lease for an additional three years, and have tentatively agreed to a starting monthly base rental of approximately $21,100 (including our share of property taxes and common area expenses), which would also be retroactive to September 15, 2009, plus two percent (2%) annual increases. The proposed extension would provide one two-year renewal option, with a three percent (3%) rent increase in year one.
 
The five-year operating lease for our office space in San Francisco expires July 31, 2015.  The monthly base rental (including month-to-month parking) is approximately $8,900 with annual increases up to 5.1%. The lease provides one five-year renewal option at 95% of fair market value and also provides for early cancellation at any time after August 1, 2011, at our option, with six (6) months notice and a payment of no more than approximately $25,000.

Lease commitments (continued) – The three-year operating lease for our Infinite Conferencing location in New Jersey expires October 31, 2012. The monthly base rental is approximately $11,400 with five percent (5%) annual increases. The lease provides one two-year renewal option, with no rent increase.
 
The three-year operating lease for office space in New York City expires January 31, 2013, although both we and the landlord have the right to terminate the lease without penalty, upon nine (9) months notice given any time after February 1, 2011. The monthly base rental is approximately $12,000, with no increases.
 
Bandwidth and co-location facilities purchase commitments - We were a party to a bandwidth services agreement with a national CDN (content delivery network) provider, which expired on December 31, 2010, and included a minimum purchase commitment of approximately $200,000 per year (based on June 30 anniversary dates) and required us to use that provider for at least 80% of our content delivery needs. We were in compliance with this agreement, based on comparing our purchases through December 31, 2010 to the corresponding pro-rata share of that commitment. We have also entered into various agreements for our purchase of bandwidth and use of co-location facilities, for an aggregate minimum purchase commitment of approximately $310,000, such agreements expiring at various times through June 2013.
 
Phone system services commitment – We are a party to an agreement for services in connection with our internal corporate phone system, requiring monthly payments of approximately $2,600 per month for a three year period commencing August 2010.
 
NOTE 6:  CAPITAL STOCK
 
Common Stock
 
A 1-for-6 reverse stock split of the outstanding shares of our common stock was effective on April 5, 2010. Except as otherwise indicated, all related amounts reported in these consolidated financial statements, including common share quantities, convertible debenture conversion prices and exercise prices of options and warrants, have been retroactively adjusted for the effect of this reverse stock split.
 
During the three months ended December 31, 2010, we issued 62,500 unregistered common shares valued at approximately $72,000, which shares will be recognized as professional fees expense for financial consulting and advisory services over various service periods of up to 6 months. None of these shares were issued to our directors or officers. Professional fee expenses arising from these and prior issuances of shares and options for financial consulting and advisory services were approximately $141,000 and $169,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2010 and 2009, respectively.
 
As a result of previously issued shares and options for financial consulting and advisory services, we have recorded approximately $56,000 in deferred equity compensation expense at December 31, 2010, to be amortized over the remaining periods of service of up to 8 months. The deferred equity compensation expense is included in the balance sheet caption prepaid expenses.

Common Stock (continued)
 
On September 17, 2010, we entered into a Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with Lincoln Park Capital Fund, LLC (“LPC”), whereby LPC agreed to an initial purchase of 300,000 shares of our common stock and 420,000 shares of our Series A-14 Preferred Stock (“Series A-14”), together with warrants to purchase 540,000 of our common shares. In accordance with the Purchase Agreement, LPC also received 50,000 shares of our common stock as a one-time commitment fee and a cash payment of $26,250 as a one-time structuring fee. On September 24, 2010, we received $824,044 net proceeds (after deducting fees and legal, accounting and other out-of-pocket costs incurred by us) related to our issuance under that Purchase Agreement of the equivalent of 770,000 common shares (including those issuable upon conversion of the preferred shares). See notes 6 and 8 for further details with respect to the Series A-14 and the warrants.
 
During the three months ended December 31, 2010 LPC purchased an additional 315,000 shares of our common stock under that Purchase Agreement for net proceeds of $268,045.  During the period from January 1, 2011 through February 4, 2011 LPC purchased an additional 225,000 shares of our common stock under that Purchase Agreement for net proceeds of $185,526. LPC has also committed to purchase, at our sole discretion, up to an additional 290,000 shares of our common stock in installments over the remaining term of the Purchase Agreement, generally at prevailing market prices, but subject to the specific restrictions and conditions in the Purchase Agreement. There is no upper limit to the price LPC may pay to purchase these additional shares. The purchase of our shares by LPC will occur on dates determined solely by us and the purchase price of the shares will be fixed on the purchase date and will be equal to the lesser of (i) the lowest sale price of our common stock on the purchase date or (ii) the average of the three (3) lowest closing sale prices of our common stock during the twelve (12) consecutive business days prior to the date of a purchase by LPC.  LPC shall not have the right or the obligation to purchase any shares of our common stock from us at a price below $0.75 per share.
 
In addition, we have agreed to use our best efforts to get, within 190 days from the date of the Purchase Agreement, shareholder approval to sell up to an additional 1,900,000 of our common shares to LPC, which upon such approval LPC has agreed to purchase, at our sole discretion and subject to the same restrictions and conditions in the Purchase Agreement.
 
The Purchase Agreement has a term of 25 months but may be terminated by us at any time after the first year at our discretion without any cost to us and may be terminated by us at any time in the event LPC does not purchase shares as directed by us in accordance with the terms of the Purchase Agreement. LPC may terminate the Purchase Agreement upon certain events of default set forth therein. The Purchase Agreement restricts our use of variable priced financings for the greater of one year or the term of the Purchase Agreement and, in the event of future financings by us, allows LPC the right to participate under conditions specified in the Purchase Agreement.

Common Stock (continued)
 
The shares of common stock sold and issued under the Purchase Agreement and the shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of Series A-14, were sold and issued pursuant to a prospectus supplement filed by us on September 24, 2010 with the Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with a takedown of an aggregate of 1.6 million shares from our Shelf Registration.  In connection with the Purchase Agreement, we also entered into a Registration Rights Agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”) with LPC, dated September 17, 2010, under which we agreed, among other things, to use our best efforts to keep the registration statement effective until the maturity date as defined in the Purchase Agreement and to indemnify LPC for certain liabilities in connection with the sale of the securities. Since there are no specified damages payable by us in the event of a default under the Registration Rights Agreement, we have determined that this is not a registration payment arrangement, as that term is defined in the Derivatives and Hedging topic (Contracts in Entity’s own Equity subtopic) of the ASC.
 
On October 1, 2010 we repaid the $344,000 principal balance due under the Wilmington Notes by a cash payment of $238,756 plus the issuance of 137,901 common shares valued at approximately $110,000, which cash and shares also included the settlement of all cash and non-cash interest and fees otherwise due – see note 4.
 
On December 2, 2010, we issued 76,769 unregistered common shares for interest on the Equipment Notes, valued at approximately $71,000 - see note 4.
 
Preferred Stock
 
As of December 31 and September 30, 2010, the only preferred stock outstanding was Series A-13 Convertible Preferred Stock (“Series A-13”) and Series A-14 Convertible Preferred Stock (“Series A-14”).
 
Series A-13 Convertible Preferred Stock
 
Effective December 17, 2009, our Board of Directors authorized the sale and issuance of up to 170,000 shares of Series A-13 Convertible Preferred Stock (“Series A-13”). On December 23, 2009, we filed a Certificate of Designation, Preferences and Rights for the Series A-13 with the Florida Secretary of State. The Series A-13 has a coupon of 8% per annum, an assigned value of $10.00 per preferred share and a conversion rate of $3.00 per common share (to be modified to $2.00 per share per January 2011 agreement – see below). Series A-13 dividends are cumulative and must be fully paid by us prior to the payment of any dividend on our common shares. Series A-13 dividends are declared quarterly but are payable at the time of any conversion of A-13, in cash or at our option in the form of our common shares, using the greater of (i) $3.00 per share (to be modified to $2.00 per share per January 2011 agreement – see below) or (ii) the average closing bid price of a common share for the five trading days immediately preceding the conversion. As of December 31, 2010, we have accrued Series A-13 dividends of $28,000, which are reflected as a current liability on our balance sheet.

Any shares of Series A-13 that are still outstanding as of December 31, 2011 (to be modified to December 31, 2012 per January 2011 agreement – see below) will automatically convert into our common shares. Series A-13 may also be converted before that date at our option, provided that the closing bid price of our common shares has been at least $9.00 per share, on each of the twenty (20) trading days ending on the third business day prior to the date on which the notice of conversion is given. Series A-13 is subordinate to Series A-12 (which is no longer outstanding) but is senior to all other preferred share classes that may be issued by us. Except as explicitly required by applicable law, the holders of Series A-13 shall not be entitled to vote on any matters as to which holders of our common shares are entitled to vote. Holders of Series A-13 are not entitled to registration rights.
 
35,000 shares of Series A-13 were outstanding as of December 31 and September 30, 2010. We incurred $6,747 of legal fees and other expenses in connection with the issuance of these shares, which was recorded on our balance sheet as a discount and was amortized as a dividend over the first year of the term of the Series A-13. The unamortized portion of the discount was zero and $1,687 at December 31 and September 30, 2010, respectively.
 
In conjunction with and in consideration of January 2011 note transaction entered into by us with CCJ Trust (see note 4), it was agreed that certain terms of the 35,000 shares of Series A-13 held by CCJ Trust at that date would be modified as follows - the conversion rate to common shares, as well as the minimum conversion rate for payment of dividends in common shares, will be $2.00 per share, the maturity date will be December 31, 2012 and dividends will be paid quarterly, in cash or, at our option, in unregistered shares. In addition it was agreed that $28,000 in Series A-13 dividends for calendar 2010 would be paid by issuance of 14,000 unregistered common shares, using the minimum conversion rate of $2.00 per share.
 
Series A-14 Convertible Preferred Stock
 
Effective September 17, 2010, our Board of Directors authorized the sale and issuance of up to 420,000 shares of Series A-14 Preferred Stock (“Series A-14”). On September 22, 2010, we filed a Certificate of Designations for the Series A-14 with the Florida Secretary of State. Series A-14 has a stated value of $1.25 per preferred share and a fixed conversion rate of $1.25 per common share.  Series A-14 has a onetime 5% dividend payable in cash on the first anniversary of the original issue date. As of December 31, 2010, we have accrued Series A-14 dividends of approximately $7,100, which are reflected as a current liability on our balance sheet.
 
The holders of Series A-14 may convert, at the option of the holder and subject to certain limitations, each share of Series A-14 into one fully-paid, non-assessable share of our common stock.  Any shares of Series A-14 that are still outstanding as of second annual anniversary of the original issue date shall automatically be converted into our common shares, using the same ratio.  Series A-14 is senior to our common stock but subordinate to Series A-13 and the holders of Series A-14 shall not be entitled to vote on any matters as to which holders of our common shares are entitled to vote. Series A-14 is redeemable at our option for $1.56 per share plus accrued but unpaid dividends, provided that the holder has the right to convert to common during a ten day notice period prior to such redemption.

Series A-14 Convertible Preferred Stock (continued)
 
As discussed above, on September 17, 2010, we entered into a Purchase Agreement whereby LPC agreed to an initial purchase of common stock plus shares of Series A-14. We issued 420,000 shares of Series A-14 to LPC on September 24, 2010. The shares issuable upon conversion of Series A-14 were registered for resale subject to the LPC Registration Rights Agreement.
 
The fair value of the warrants issued in connection with the Purchase Agreement was calculated to be approximately $386,000 using the Black-Scholes model (with the assumptions including expected volatility of 105% and a risk free interest rate of 1.08%). The common shares issued as a one-time commitment fee in connection with the Purchase Agreement were valued at approximately $55,000, based on the quoted market value on the date of issuance. The aggregate of these two items, plus the cash out-of-pocket costs incurred by us in connection with the Purchase Agreement, was allocated on a pro-rata basis between the number of common shares sold and the common shares underlying the Series A-14. The amount allocated to the Series A-14, $298,639, was recorded on our balance sheet as a discount and is being amortized as a dividend over the term of the Series A-14. The unamortized portion of the discount was $258,406 and $295,735 at December 31 and September 30, 2010, respectively. See Note 8 with respect to the recording of the warrants as a liability on our December 31 and September 30, 2010 balance sheets.
 
The number of shares of ONSM common stock that can be issued upon the conversion of Series A-14 is limited to the extent necessary to ensure that following the conversion the total number of shares of ONSM common stock beneficially owned by the holder does not exceed 4.999% of our issued and outstanding common stock, although this percentage may be changed at the holder’s option upon not less than 61 days advance notice to us and provided the changed limitation does not exceed 9.99%.

NOTE 8:  STOCK OPTIONS AND WARRANTS
 
As of December 31, 2010, we had issued options and warrants still outstanding to purchase up to 2,172,439 ONSM common shares, including 1,165,843 shares under Plan Options; 41,962 shares under Non-Plan Options to employees and directors; 271,155 shares under Non-Plan Options to financial consultants; and 693,479 shares under warrants issued in connection with various financings and other transactions.
 
On February 9, 1997, our Board of Directors and a majority of our shareholders adopted the 1996 Stock Option Plan (the "1996 Plan"), which, including the effect of subsequent amendments to the 1996 Plan, authorized up to 750,000 shares available for issuance as options and up to another 333,333 shares available for stock grants. On September 18, 2007, our Board of Directors and a majority of our shareholders adopted the 2007 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2007 Plan”), which authorized the issuance of up to 1,000,000 shares of ONSM common stock pursuant to stock options, stock purchase rights, stock appreciation rights and/or stock awards for employees, directors and consultants. The options and stock grants authorized for issuance under the 2007 Plan were in addition to those already issued under the 1996 Plan, although we may no longer issue additional options or stock grants under the 1996 Plan, which expired on February 9, 2007. On March 25, 2010, our Board of Directors and a majority of our shareholders approved a 1,000,000 increase in the number of shares authorized for issuance under the 2007 Plan, for total authorization of 2,000,000 shares.
 
Detail of Plan Option activity under the 1996 Plan and the 2007 Plan for the three months ended December 31, 2010 is as follows:

We recognized compensation expense of approximately $177,000 and $262,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2010 and 2009, respectively, related to Plan Options granted to employees and vesting during those periods. The unvested portion of Plan Options outstanding as of December 31, 2010 (and granted on or after our October 1, 2006 adoption of the requirements of the Compensation - Stock Compensation topic of the ASC) represents approximately $543,000 of potential future compensation expense, which excludes approximately $165,000 related to the ratable portion of those unvested options allocable to past service periods and recognized as compensation expense as of December 31, 2010.

On January 14, 2011 our Compensation Committee awarded 983,400 four-year options under the provisions of the 2007 Plan. These options were issued to our directors, employees and consultants, vest over two years and are exercisable at $1.23 per share, fair market value on the date of the grant. The Black-Scholes valuation of this grant is approximately $803,000, which will be recognized as non-cash compensation expense over the two year service period starting in January 2011. Our Compensation Committee also instructed management to include a request for additional authorized 2007 Plan shares in the next shareholder proxy, and approved that the above grant be augmented by an equal number of options issued to the same recipients, using the same strike price as the basic grant, to the extent permitted by applicable law and subject to shareholder and/or any other required regulatory approvals.
