Achievements in 2009:

    
    -   Rebranded the company "Monexa Technologies Corp." to better reflect
        the strategy of monetization for cloud computing and SaaS
        applications.
    -   Introduced a new user interface and API for Monexa Billing on demand,
        and added numerous new features.
    -   In Q3 and Q4 2009, closed a non-brokered private placement of 10.4M
        shares for total net proceeds of $1.2M to fund new customer
        acquisition.
    -   Acquired a record number of new customers in 2009.
    -   Achieved Level 1 certification to Payment Card Industry Data Security

        DSS compliant data centre.
    -   The company reduced operating costs and increased efficiency by
        implementing a new customer service strategy and partnership that

Non-GAAP measures

EBITDA is a key measure used by management to evaluate the Company's performance. Management believes that EBITDA is useful as it provides an indication of the results generated by the Company's business activities prior to taking into consideration how those activities are financed and taxed and also prior to taking into consideration asset depreciation and other non-cash expenditures. EBITDA is not a recognized measure under Canadian GAAP, and accordingly, investors are cautioned that EBITDA should not be construed as an alternative to net earnings or loss determined in accordance with GAAP as an indicator of the financial performance of the Company or as a measure of the Company's liquidity and cash flows. EBITDA may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. The schedule below details how IP Applications reconciles its net loss per GAAP to EBITDA for the most recent four quarters. Note: for the quarter ended December 31, the impact of realized and unrealized foreign exchange gains and loss are excluded.
