In 2005, Restaurants For Sale Online experienced another record year. Our buyer activity grew substantially over the prior year by over 30% in new registrations, and 63% in cash available. The median cash available and average cash available were up over 26% as a result of the large real estate boom. In total the site received over 4,000 new registered buyers which equated to nearly $1.5 billion of cash available to invest in restaurants by our buyer pool. Over the last 3 years we have generated almost $4 billion in buyer funds available and will continue to push to grow our database.
