2 Copyright© 2007 WAC Survey. All rights reserved 2 WAC Survey is a full service, custom market research vendor, established in 1986 Specializing in state-of-the-art quantitative surveys and techniques: Tracking Segmentation Concept Testing and Optimization Product Testing Ad Testing New, Extended and Repositioned Products: Opportunities Analyses Market Definition and Structure Positioning Studies: Targeting, Key Drivers, Competitive Analyses Principals Have Over 60 Years Combined Market Research Industry Experience—and are hands-on with respect to project implementation Offering services BEYOND standard and traditional provided by few, if any, other research vendors—reflecting our comfort zone and sophistication level with various strategic branding and multivariate analytic techniques: Strategic branding orientation in our approach to study and survey design, data collection, analysis and reporting Not your typical research vendor, not your ‘Father’s Oldsmobile’

How the essence of the brand can be integrated into every point of contact with people inside and outside the organization Brand Extension: Products or services that can be marketed under the brand umbrella that will benefit from association and reinforce or strengthen the brand essence Brand Leverage: the strengths of the brand in order to increase its profitability, market share and equity Brand Equity Management: priority strategies to leverage the brand's equity and profitability without diluting its essence Brand Alignment: whether the intrinsic brand strengths are aligned with image Brand Equity Metrics: evaluating the impact of brand building on brand’s equity (e.g., tracking)

Our own proprietary radio advertising testing system years of expertise in emotional and image equity metrics, leading to development of emotional-based segmentation modeling and positioning testing (plutchik theory) 19.Seven years of experience in developing, managing and utilizing proprietary panels 25 Qualities That Differentiate WAC Survey from Most Research Vendors (Cont.)

7 Copyright© 2007 WAC Survey. All rights reserved 7 20.Multiple approaches to web usability testing 21.Our analyses and reporting. We go beyond mere reporting to provide ‘strategic road- mapping’ and ‘opportunity analyses’ 22.Our excellent servicing and speed of implementation: WE ARE FAST AND ON TIME! 23.For multi-phased projects, we include two initial phases as a standard deliverable that the majority of research vendors would NEVER think of including unless you told them to first. (NO, it is not qualitative research, it is something else. Ask us and we’ll gladly reveal them) 24.Our obsession with cost and quality control 25.Our competitive costing. We usually beat all other competing vendors’ costs and, on top of that, we offer a generous discount option program for various scenarios 25 Qualities That Differentiate WAC Survey from Most Research Vendors (Cont.)

8 Copyright© 2007 WAC Survey. All rights reserved 8 Concept Testing and Optimization: Neo Approaches 1.Market Estimation via Full Concept/Product Testing Answers questions: does the new product meet consumer’s needs? How can it be improved? What are likely sales volume/market shares? Identifies key purchase drivers Doesn’t require norms 2.Concept Screening or Basic Concept Testing Appends segmentation modeling for analyses: concept response based segments, early adopters, brand loyalty Cost efficient method of truncating and deconstructing concepts allows for greater number of concepts exposed in 20-minute survey 3.Concept Optimization using Conjoint/Discrete Choice Analysis Allows respondents to design their optimal product Provides simulation phase to determine market share and gauge competitive response

9 Copyright© 2007 WAC Survey. All rights reserved 9 Concept Testing and Optimization: Neo Approaches 4.Testing Concepts for Brands Extended to Different Product Categories Answers questions such as: How elastic are BRAND and its image when it is re-positioned in entirely NEW category? Tropicana Orange Juice Frozen Juice Pops Kellogg’s Cereal Cereal, Yogurt Health Bars Wolfgang Puck Canned Gourmet Soups Virgin Airlines Virgin Wireless Phones, Video stores Polo Clothing Home furnishings 5.Efficiencies Applied to ALL Concept Tests: Use of algorithms from previous research to screen for desirable target respondents Utilize previous research to ‘shape’ attributes, consumer language Append relevant models (Brand Loyalty; Early Adopters/Innovators; other custom segmentation models

10 Copyright© 2007 WAC Survey. All rights reserved 10 Segmentation Research: Neo Approaches 1.Concept Screening Response Based Segmentation 2.Concept Response Based Segmentation 3.Utilizing Conjoint Analysis 4.Utilizing Multiple Regression 5.Early Adopters’ Segmentation Modeling 6.Brand Loyalty Segmentation Modeling 7.Tagging Your Customer D-Base or Panel 8.Globally As Well: UK France Germany Italy China Brazil Japan India Spain Mexico Morocco So.
