Item 3. Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.

           On October 31, 2007, as part of a debt financing transaction (the
           \"Financing Transaction\"), Averion International Corp. entered into
           certain senior secured notes and issued shares of its common stock to
           certain investors.  Dr. Lavin purchased a Note in the principal
           amount of $2,000,000 pursuant to a Securities Purchase Agreement and
           was issued 9,600,000 shares in connection therewith.  The Note is
           secured by a Security Agreement entered into by Averion and the note
           holders' collateral agent, as well as a Pledge Agreement and
           Guaranty, each for the benefit of the note holders, including Dr.

           On November 28, 2006, Dr. Lavin's shares of Series E Convertible
           Preferred Stock (\"Series E Preferred\") were automatically converted
           into shares of common stock, at a conversion ratio of 9090.91 shares
           of common stock for each share of Series E Preferred outstanding.
           Dr. Lavin's 6,714 shares of Series E Preferred converted into
           61,036,369 shares of common stock.

           On July 31, 2006, IT&E International Group, Inc. (\"IT&E\"), through
           its wholly-owned subsidiaries IT&E Merger Sub, Inc. (\"Merger Sub\"),
           and IT&E Acquisition Co., Inc. (\"Acquisition Sub\"), consummated the
           merger with Averion Inc. (\"Averion\") pursuant to the terms of the
           Agreement and Plan of Merger dated June 30, 2006, by and among IT&E,
           Merger Sub and Acquisition Sub, on the one hand, and Averion and
           Averion's shareholders (the \"Averion Shareholders\"), on the other
           hand (the \"Merger Agreement\"). At the closing of the Averion
           Merger, Merger Sub merged with and into Averion (the \"Reverse
           Merger\"). As a result of the Reverse Merger, Averion was the
           surviving corporation and a wholly-owned subsidiary of the
           registrant. Immediately following the closing of the Reverse Merger,
           a forward merger occurred whereby Averion was merged with and into
           Acquisition Sub (the \"Forward Merger\" preceded immediately by the
           Reverse Merger, constitute the \"Averion Merger\"). As a result of
           the Forward Merger, Acquisition Sub is the surviving corporation and
           a wholly-owned operating subsidiary of IT&E.

           At the closing of the Averion Merger, IT&E acquired all of the
           outstanding capital stock of Averion. In exchange for all such
           outstanding capital stock of Averion, the Averion Shareholders
           received from IT&E, in the aggregate: (i) five million six hundred
           fifty thousand dollars ($5,650,000) in cash (the \"Cash
           Consideration\"); (ii) two year promissory notes in the aggregate
           principal amount of seven hundred thousand dollars ($700,000) (the
           \"Note A Consideration\"); (iii) five year promissory notes in the
           aggregate principal amount of five million seven hundred thousand
           dollars ($5,700,000) (the \"Note B Consideration\"); (iv) forty five
           million two hundred forty five thousand four hundred fifty five
           (45,245,455) shares of the registrant's common stock (the \"Common
           Stock Consideration\"); and (v) eight thousand three hundred (8,300)
           shares of the registrant's Series E Convertible Preferred Stock,
           stated value $1,000 per share (the \"Preferred Stock
           Consideration\"). A portion of the proceeds was received from ComVest
           Investment Partners II LLC, from the exercise of their option to
           invest an additional $5,000,000 pursuant to that certain Securities
           Purchase Agreement dated November 9, 2005, was used to fund the
           majority of the Cash Consideration paid by the registrant for the
           outstanding capital stock of Averion.  Effective September 21, 2006,
           IT&E changed its name from IT&E International Group, Inc. to Averion
           International Corp.
