(xx)Earnings before interest, taxes and amortization ("EBITDA") are not a measure of performance under Canadian GAAP. EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for Net Earnings nor as a measure of operating performance or profitability.

Commenting on the results for the three months ended December 31st, Chairman and CEO Reuben Klein stated, "During the first quarter we continued our profitable trend while refinancing our bank indebtedness and raising capital to support our current working capital requirements. While there was a slight year over year decrease in first quarter revenue reflecting a reduction in International activity, our North American business grew with improvements in areas such as our online sales channels."

"The Company in the first quarter experienced an improved result over the same prior year period. While in the second quarter we expect a year over year decrease in revenue, we are projecting full year profitability and sales growth in the latter half of the year with new product introductions."
