Dear Members,

       Our pick for the morning of 4/18 is GTDA.  This company is moving in 
the right direction this year as its revenue was up 27% in 2001 making over 9 
million dollars.  Despite their incredible growth, they have a mere $4 
Million dollar market cap. If you want to compare, just look at AMEX traded 
SOS, Storage Computer Corp., a similar company to GTDATA, which has smaller 
revenues coupled with large losses, and it possess' a market cap valuation of 
$86.7 Million! It's hard to even grasp the thought of how undervalued GTDATA 
is and to think of the upward potential this little gem has blows my mind.  
This company has many things going for it: rapidly growing revenue in an 
industry (data storage) that The Gartner Group estimates will grow from 
$20-Billion in 2001 to $28-Billion in 2003. Many of GTDATA's clients are also 
Fortune 500 companies, they have an excellent contract flow, they anticipate 
global expansion along with their current customers, and have an absolutely 
stellar management team in place and so much more.  With their great previous 
performance, we can only expect the best from this up and coming gem.  This 
is a rare find in the OTC and should not be overlooked.  Here is your chance 
to get in on the ground floor on a very solid company with huge potential.  
This is one undervalued stock which is just on the verge of exploding.  
Please take a look at our research below for more information on GTDA.  We 
have both fundamental data, technical analysis, as well as a commentary on 
many other aspects of the company.  As always, please do you own due 
diligence before investing.  Good luck with your investments tomorrow and 
please remember to Invest With Cents.

TECHNICAL ANALYSIS 4/17
GTDA is showing solid support at around the $0.20 level which will provide a 
nice cushion after it makes its move.  Watch for a break through the short 
term trendline tomorrow to show strength in the upward move.  If this upward 
move is supported by large volume, you can expect even greater holding 
strength.


ABOUT THE COMPANY
GTDATA is a data storage company and fortunately the need for enhanced data 
storage solutions has never been greater. The Gartner Group estimates that 
the data storage industry will grow from $20-Billion in 2001 to $28-Billion 
in 2003, an annual growth rate in excess of 20%. GTDATA believes that it will 
not only grow with, but also capture increasing market share within this 
expanding industry. 

GTDATA currently provides its clients, many of whom are Fortune 500 and 100 
companies, with highly specialized and critical services such as repair, 
remarketing and logistics support for tape and hard disk drive storage 
products. They are focused primarily upon the high margin service provider 
industry. Their existing client base includes mass storage OEMs and key 
integrators. Strategic alliances include relationships with mass storage OEMs 
and key integrators. GTDATA believes that profitable relationships with 
client/partners have positioned GTDATA for significant near-term growth.


BACKGROUND
GTDATA is a leading provider of full-service solutions to the mass storage 
industry. Founded in June 1995 by senior management, TSLi an operating 
division of GTDATA identified a glaring need by tape drive manufacturers for 
quality service work, prompt turnaround times and stable and quality (ISO9002 
Certified) infrastructure. 

While TSLi's original core competency consisted of tape drive repair to the 
component level, they have adapted to the changing requirements of current 
key customers. These partners, along with TSLi's core of established tape 
OEM's are now in need of faster cycle times and higher volume commitments, 
and TSLi's response has positioned the company for significant immediate 
growth. TSLi is adapting to these needs in a more unique manner than its 
competitors. Instead of devoting greater resources to personnel, TSLi has 
concentrated on improving processes and controls, working closely with their 
OEM partners on proprietary technology and equipment, and continuing to 
"think outside of the box". 

TSLi continues to provide quality tape repair to the component level. They 
also provide additional service offerings that include inventory management, 
advance-exchange and engineering consultation. These added services, which 
they expect will continue to increase as a percentage of their business, is 
supported by a full-service infrastructure. A distinct competitive advantage 
is their ability to offer a wide spectrum of services within one 
facility/company. This infrastructure includes:

·        Customer Service
·        Technical Support
·        Sales and Marketing
·        Engineering Support
·        Program Management
·        Logistics Expertise 

TSLi's infrastructure is poised not only to support its own core business as 
stated above, but also to support additional opportunities. TSLi's background 
includes manufacturing expertise, and this strength bodes well for any 
manufacturing opportunities. 


MARKETING STRATEGIES
GTDATA markets its services and products throughout the world, and to date 
has generated the majority of its sales in the United States. In addition to 
growing our top accounts through additional service offerings and a wider 
variety of models serviced, we are establishing vertical penetration within 
each of our top accounts.

GTDATA has benefited from an industry-wide consolidation in the past 18 
months. Past competitors (e.g. ESL) have been acquired by full-service 
organizations (e.g. Teleplan), and their core competencies, in turn, have 
changed dramatically. GTDATA is one of the largest mass storage service 
companies to offer unique value-added services such as full configuration 
kitting, repair to the component level, and unequaled turnaround time for 
volume transactions in the US.
