    The Company begins its third quarter with well garnished order book

    MONTREAL, Dec. 12 /CNW Telbec/ - Clemex Technologies Inc. (TSX Venture
CXG.a), designer and manufacturer of Image Analysis systems and software for
microscopy applications, announced today its FY 2008 second quarter results
ending October 31 2007. For this second Quarter of FY 2008, sales reached
$1,502,403, which is $104,053 more than last year sales of $1,398,350 for the
same period. The Corporation ends this Quarter with a Net loss of $66,538
compared to a profit of $40,174 for the same period last year. This quarter's
deficit is due to the substantial appreciation of the Canadian dollar which
resulted in a net foreign exchange loss of $65,935. Gross Margin remained the
same at 59.9% while it was 59.4% last year.
    The severe US dollar depreciation of 11% since last year have further
reduced the total sales revenues by nearly $100,000 since sales in US dollars
accounted for over $950,000 this past quarter. The Corporation has increased
its prices by 5% three months ago and anticipates a further price increase in
January in order to adjust one again with the recent Canadian dollar reality.

    Clement Forget, President and CEO of Clemex Technologies declared:
"Results for this Second Quarter are actually positive and reflect the order
book's increase with regards to all the efforts of previous months. Moreover
the order book will get even better once sales for our new partner, Horiba
Instruments Inc, begin to flow in these upcoming quarters. Had it not been of
the sudden increase of the Canadian dollar value and exceptional expenses
encountered for the Annual General Meeting, the final results could have been
close to $100,000 profit for this quarter."
