per share for fiscal 2006.
K. Barry Sparks, the President of Cencotech, stated: "While order
generation for the CashNet product during the quarter was strong, the supply
line disruption as a result of the manufacturer of the product moving
production facilities from Canada to Texas resulted in minimal production and
order completion. The transition of manufacturing facilities was exacerbated
by a decision to bring forward a new version of the CashNet products
concurrent with the move. The Company has been working closely with the
manufacturer to bring the new products on line as quickly as possible.
Nevertheless, steady state manufacturing of the new CashNet products will not
be achieved until March/April, 2008."
Mr. Sparks continued: "Software license sales and consulting revenues
will have to pick up the slack created by the delay in hardware product
deliveries through mid second quarter 2008. While as noted earlier, the sales
cycle for the Company's software tends to be quite lengthy, we remain
optimistic with respect to the future of all the Company's products, as we
look at the possibilities for continuing growth."
The Company also announced the completion of extension agreements with
its convertible debenture holder and its secured debt provider to extend the
term on these facilities to September 30, 2008. Cencotech is also pleased to
announce the appointment of Christopher Adams as Chief Financial Officer of
the Company; he replaces E. Christopher Stait-Gardner who has been interim
Chief Financial Officer since September 2007.
