TORONTO, Sept. 21 /CNW/ - Today, Delta Systems, Inc. ("Delta Canada")
(TSX-V: DLT) updated its Business Outlook.
In the third quarter of this year, the order inflow for Delta Canada's
direct and indirect subsidiaries (collectively referred to as "Delta") have
been significantly below expectations in spite of normal project quote flow
and an active quote portfolio of $37 million. Delta management had expected
orders to strengthen in September and for the rest of 2007. An order in excess
of $1 million was expected by early September 2007. While Delta management was
informed by its customer that Delta was selected as the supplier it was also
advised that the placing of the order would be delayed until November 2007.
Another significant potential order totaling up to $2 million had a scope
revision reducing the size of the potential order to below $1 million. The
date on which the customer may place this potential order is also
undetermined. There have also been delays in the receipt of other smaller yet
significant orders. Delta management does not expect a strengthening of orders
in September and does not have a view as to when order inflow will improve.
Delta Canada no longer expects to generate sufficient revenue in the fourth
quarter of 2007 to generate neutral or positive EBITDA and now expects to
incur an EBITDA loss in the fourth quarter of 2007. Delays in major order
inflow have had a significant negative impact on Delta's financial condition
and future. At this time, Delta's future prospects are uncertain.
Management of Delta Canada has been exploring strategic alternatives
since the spring of this year and has had discussions with a number of
interested parties. Delta Canada retained a Toronto based investment dealer to
assist with this process. To date, no offers or proposals have been made and
management has concluded that no transaction is likely to take place in the
