(a wholly-owned subsidiary of P2i, Inc.) Bethlehem, PA We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheet of P2i Newspaper, Inc. (a wholly-owned subsidiary of P2i, Inc.) as December 31, 2002 and 2001, and the related consolidated statements of operations and accumulated deficit, and of cash flows for the years then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits. We conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion. In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of P2i Newspaper, Inc. as December 31, 2002 and 2001, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for the years then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern. As shown in the accompanying financial statements, the Company incurred net losses of $954,699 and $382,547 during the years ended December 31, 2002 and 2001, respectively. As discussed in Note 1 to the financial statements, the Company's significant operating losses raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management's plans in regard to these matters are also discussed in Note 1. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty. /s/ MARGOLIS & COMPANY P.C. --------------------------- Certified Public Accountants Bala Cynwyd, PA October 30, 2003 - - 2 -

(a wholly-owned subsidiary of P2i, Inc.) NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS FOR THE YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2002 AND 2001 1. Nature of Business and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies ----------------------------------------------------------------- Nature of business - P2i Newspaper, Inc. ("the Company") is principally engaged in the conversion of text and graphics from print to interactive Web content. Its clients include newspaper groups located in the United States and the United Kingdom. The Company is headquartered in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania and has a west coast sales office in California and a data conversion center located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The Company, a Delaware corporation, was incorporated in August 2002. During September, 2002, the Company issued 100 shares of common stock to its parent, P2i, Inc. ("P2i") in exchange for P2i's assets relating to the newspaper business (principally patents, Internet domain and trade names, the newspaper-related customer base, technology and use of the production facility in Malaysia). In addition, newspaper employees were transferred from P2i, Inc. to the Company. Basis of consolidation - The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiary, P2i Online SDN BHD, a Malaysian corporation (incorporated December 7, 2000). The consolidated financial statements also include the activity of P2i, Inc.'s Newspaper Division for 2001, and from January 1, 2002 through September 30, 2002. This activity has been extracted from the books and records of P2i, Inc. and includes all revenues and associated costs attributable to the conversion of print to Web content for newspaper customers, and either direct or allocated operating expenses of the Newspaper Division. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated. Basis of presentation - The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amount and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern. The Company's continuation as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to generate sufficient cash flows to meet its obligations on a timely basis, to obtain additional financing as may be required, and to generate revenues to a level where the Company becomes profitable. Additionally, the Company has experienced extreme cash liquidity shortfalls from operations. The Company's continued existence is dependent upon its ability to achieve its operating plan. Management's plans include the following: o In February, 2003, the Company signed an Agreement and Plan of Merger with ProtoSource Corporation ("ProtoSource") to allow ProtoSource to acquire P2i Newspaper, Inc. in exchange for a controlling interest in ProtoSource. o Obtaining additional working capital through the sale of common stock or debt securities. If management cannot achieve the above objectives, the Company may find it necessary to dispose of assets, or undertake other actions as may be appropriate. - - 6 - P2i NEWSPAPER, INC. (a wholly-owned subsidiary of P2i, Inc.) NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - CONTINUED FOR THE YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2002 AND 2001 1. Nature of Business and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies - Continued ------------------------------------------------------------------- Revenue recognition - The Company recognizes service revenue when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, services are performed, the price of the transaction is fixed and determinable, and collectibility is reasonably assured. Use of estimates - The presentation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires 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 revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Accounts receivable - The Company considers accounts receivable to be fully collectible; accordingly, no allowance for doubtful accounts is required. If amounts become uncollectible, they will be charged to operations when that determination is made. Property and equipment and depreciation - Property and equipment is stated at cost. Depreciation is provided using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the related assets. Capitalized software costs - The Company accounts for software development costs in accordance with Statement of Position 98-1 "Accounting for Costs of Computer Software Developed or Obtained for Internal Use", which provides that costs incurred in the preliminary project stage be expensed as incurred and cost incurred during the application development stage be capitalized. Internally developed software is amortized using the straight-line method over three years after the software is placed in service. Amortization - Debt issuance costs are being amortized using the straight-line method over one year. Foreign currency translation - For foreign currencies whose functional currency is the local currency, balance sheet accounts are translated at exchange rates in effect at the end of the year and income statement accounts are translated at the average exchange rates for the year. Translation gains or losses are included in other comprehensive income (loss) and are presented as a separate component of stockholders' equity (deficit). Transaction gains and losses are reflected in operations. There were no translation gains or losses in 2002 or 2001, as the exchange rate for the local Malaysian currency (the Ringgit Malaysia, "RM") was fixed at 3.8 RM to 1 U.S. Dollar. Income taxes - Deferred income taxes are provided for temporary differences between the financial reporting and tax basis of assets and liabilities using enacted tax laws and rates for the years when the differences are expected to reverse. - - 7 - P2i NEWSPAPER, INC.

Proposed Acquisition -------------------- On February 13, 2003, the Company announced an agreement and Plan of Merger to transfer all of its outstanding capital stock to ProtoSource, in exchange for the issuance of up to 19,383,531 shares of ProtoSource common stock and satisfaction of the existing debt to ProtoSouce (the "Agreement"). The 19,383,531 shares will be reduced by the number of shares equal to the total fees incurred to audit the financial statements of the Company, divided by $0.50 (the "Adjusted Shares"). The P2i Newspaper shareholders shall receive 10 shares of ProtoSource common stock for each $1.00 of gross income (as defined in the Agreement) earned by P2i Newspaper during calendar years 2003-2005, calculated quarterly, up to the total number of Adjusted Shares. The Adjusted Shares shall be subject to a three-year lock-up, which may be released upon the stock price and volume reaching established thresholds. ProtoSource loaned the Company $50,000 in 2001, $995,280 in 2002, and $348,673 between January 1, 2003 and September 30, 2003. The loans to P2i are in the form of demand notes which, in the event that the merger does not get completed, will be due on demand. The notes accrue interest at the rate of 8% per annum. The ultimate repayment of the debt is highly dependent upon the completion of the merger. The closing of this Agreement is subject to approval by the shareholders of ProtoSource and P2i Newspaper, and other customary terms and conditions. After the acquisition, P2i Newspaper will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of ProtoSource. 3.
