In-Touch Survey Systems Ltd. announces highest quarterly revenue, profits and cashflow in the company's history



    OTTAWA, Nov. 6 /CNW Telbec/ - In-Touch Survey Systems Ltd. ("In-Touch"
TSX-Venture: INX) is pleased to announce that revenue increased 48% to
$1,413,081 in Q3 2007 compared to $925,479 in Q3 2006. Net income increased
significantly to $164,749 compared to a net income of $1,037 in Q3 2006. Cash
flow from operations (adjusted EBITDA - see detailed financials) increased
227% to $295,000 in Q3 2007 compared to $94,000 in Q3 2006. The Q3 FY 2007
gross margin was 59% (58% YTD 2007) compared to 64% for Q3 (61% YTD 2006).
Management is encouraged with the fiscal performance, given the lower margins,
and anticipates margins moving back to historical levels in the future.
    Q4 revenues are typically lower than previous quarters as In-Touch
customers' focus on the annual holiday sales cycle. Management expects
Q4 Revenue in the range of $1.25 million to $1.4 million CDN and expectations
for FY 2007 revenue in the range of $4.8 million and $5.0 million. Revenues
are also expected to grow 40% in fiscal 2008.
    "New US-based customers were a major reason for the strong sales growth.
These customers provide a significant opportunity for In-Touch to grow sales
over the next few years. Becoming a major supplier to these Fortune
50 customers also validates our investment in our software and hardware
technology," said Michael Gaffney, Chief Executive Officer.
    "Over the past three years, we have significantly changed the strategy of
the company from being just a market research company to a software and
hardware solutions company that provides products directly to the marketing
and operations divisions of Fortune 1000 business to consumer companies. Our
customers want more than just market research. We provide our customers with
highly secure real-time data collection along with one-to-one marketing
capabilities, a robust real-time reporting system and digital signage
capabilities. We continue to enhance our software technology and services by
adding user friendly, leading edge, business intelligence tools for managers
and executives - helping our customers sell to their customers," said Gaffney.
