   GPA Market Reports
 
  GPA for CGC Comics provides an additional service to its subscribers, GPA Market Reports.  This service is substantially different to the current GPA service and functionality in that it provides subscribers with summary reporting on the total GPA data.

GPA Market Reports will refer to data as "progressive" and "monthly". Progressive data is represented as a 12 month report, ending as of the previous month. Monthly data is represented as the previous month's data only.
