    Net (loss) earnings per common share                  ($0.01)      $0.05
    

For the three-month period ended October 31, 2009 the Company reported a net loss of $157,000 or $(0.01) per common share on revenues of $2.7 million as compared to net earnings of $724,000 or $0.05 per common share on revenues of $3.7 million in the corresponding prior period. The net loss is largely due to extraordinary costs resulting from the reorganization of the German office, and the impact of the global recession on demand.

"The outlook for the third quarter of fiscal 2010 is anticipated to be similar to the first half run rate as a result of the ongoing recession and weak demand," says Grant Reeves, Chief Executive. "While the market environment continues to be uncertain, management believes its diligent control of expenses, its substantial cash reserves and execution of its operating plan will keep the Company positioned for growth as opportunities arise."
