fiscal 2007, recurring revenue was 87% of revenue, or approximately

$1,577,825, compared to $562,464 for the comparable period in 2006.
"Our revenue continues to grow at a rapid pace which reflects the
popularity of our innovative on-board retail technology and platform service,"
said Tom Douramakos, President and CEO, GuestLogix. "As we secure the leading
airline brands and grow our passenger trip global footprint we will position
steadily to integrate third-party products and services that operators will
want to offer through our Mobile Virtual Store(TM). This should lead us to
additional profitable revenue growth in Fiscal 2008."
Operating expenses for the year ended November 30, 2007 increased to
$6,819,202 from $2,574,108 in fiscal 2006. The increase was due to the
continued strong growth of the Company and primarily driven by personnel
costs, equipment sales costs, sales and marketing costs and professional fees.

($1,022,754) for the prior year.
