Mr. Carol Murray, President and Chief Executive Officer of PowerTech stated: "We are somewhat satisfied with the results as we continue to work with OEM partners to develop new markets but are disappointed on the continued slow economic situation and the delays in closing the previously announced acquisition but we remain optimistic to close the transaction. Also, the conversion of the debenture into shares of the Company will reduce our short term debt obligation and improve our balance sheet. Due to the ongoing economic downturn, OM Engineering delayed the deployment plan which will impact PowerTech's revenues from this OEM agreement in the short term.".

Outlook

The Company's current focus is to successfully complete the purchase of all the assets of a construction, and agricultural wear and tear parts manufacturer. The company believes it can clearly benefit by consolidating regional niche players in Northeast Canada which would allow for the elimination of many duplicate products and the potential for operational and business development synergies. This acquisition could create a springboard for future acquisitions that would quickly translate into an improved financial profile.

The Company's immediate goal is to secure the necessary financing to complete this transaction. As such there are no guarantees that such a financing can be completed, nor any guarantees it can be completed in a timely manner. Management is however dedicating every necessary effort to ensure the completion of this transaction as soon as possible.

Overall the Company wishes to fund its capital requirements mainly by way of cash flows generated from operations and additional capital. The Company's ability to generate sufficient short-term and long-term capital depends on various factors, including general economic conditions, technological advancements, market acceptance of its products and competition. Generally speaking, there can be no assurance that the Company will generate sufficient cash flows from operations or capital to meet its current needs.
