    Listing: TSX
    Symbol: CYM

    TORONTO, July 24 /CNW/ - Cymat Technologies Ltd. (TSX: CYM), a
Toronto-based manufacturer and licensor of stabilized aluminum foam ("SAF")
products, targeting the automotive, architectural and blast mitigation
markets, announced a revision to its press release dated July 23, 2008,
involving a minor accounting reclassification.

    Revenue

    Combined revenue for the 12 months ended April 30, 2008 remained at
$2.9 million, while the increase from the previous 12 month period decreased
from 36 percent to 28 percent. The adjustment was a consequence of the
reclassification of commissions paid on sales in the previous year from
revenue to plant operating costs, in order to provide a consistent
year-over-year comparison of results. For the same reason, revenue for the
quarter ended April 30, 2008 is now reported as $0.4 million, a decrease of 62
percent from revenue in the same quarter in 2007. Quarterly revenue and the
percentage decrease from 2007 were reported in the previous release as $0.5
million and 45 percent respectively.
    The annual financial statements, management discussion and analysis and
annual information form have been filed on SEDAR. Cymat Technologies Ltd.
trades on the TSX stock exchange under the trading symbol CYM.
