    Highlights:
    -----------
    
    In the three months ended March 31, 2009 the Company and its subsidiaries
produced revenues of $1,304,756 and decreased the net loss by $61,349 (-19.4%)
over the first quarter in 2008 to $255,284. Management achieved this by
reducing operating expenses by $279,101 (-22%), which more than offset the
overall reduction in gross margin. Revenue for the quarter was lower by
$447,040 over the same period in 2008, due in part to a weak cash position in
the quarter and the effects of a more cautious business environment as the
emerging recession continues.
    EBITDA, a non-GAAP indicator of financial performance, was $(109,330) for
the quarter, which included a $70,800 foreign exchange loss on the Company's
US$2 million debt. This number has improved from $(236,484)in the same quarter
last year.
    "We have undergone major restructuring events throughout this past year
including management and personnel changes, consolidation of facilities,
system integration and new sales initiatives," stated Michael Beckley,
President and Chief Executive Officer of HydraLogic Systems Inc. "These
changes have increased operating efficiencies and have helped considerably in
creating profitable business units, which we have achieved even in the off
season of Q1. As further indication of the level of improvement, had we not
included the $70,800 foreign currency adjustment on our US $2M note, we would
have reported a Q1 EBITDA of $(38,530), being an improvement of $197,000
(84%), over the first quarter in 2008. Additionally, most of the severance and
restructuring cost, at the corporate level, ran their courses in Q1 and will
no longer be an expense going forward. The mosquito and odour control season
is now in full swing and we will be focusing on sales growth with attention to
profit for the balance of 2009," concluded Mr. Beckley.
