Rapid Solutions Corporation reports fiscal 2008 first quarter results



    Highlights second consecutive quarter of positive earnings

    CALGARY, Sept. 26 /CNW/ - Rapid Solutions Corporation (TSX-V: RPD), a
business process solutions focused software company targeting the petroleum
industry, today announced its financial results for the three months ended
July 31, 2007.
    The Company posted revenues of $1.5 million from consulting and licensing
of its software solutions for the quarter ended July 31, 2007, representing an
increase of 46% over the prior year.
    "We are operating our business on the basis of maintaining positive
margins while reinvesting earnings into our technology platform, reporting
modest net income for two sequential quarters," noted Michael Jones, Chief
Executive Officer of Rapid Solutions. "We continue to develop our software and
have enjoyed success in the US market."

    
    Key results, achievements and events for the quarter included:

    -   The Company achieved significant year-over-year revenue growth of 46%
        as a result of important strategic acquisitions and increases in both
        software and service revenue, fuelled by overall market strength and
        improved sales execution;

    -   The Company achieved sequential profitability in the fourth and first
        quarters;

    -   Revenue from software license and support fees increased by 99% year
        over year as the Company began to execute on its plan to leverage its
        consulting business channels to license software.

    Financial Highlights

    Revenue in the first quarter of 2008 was $1.5 million, an increase of 46%
over the same period a year earlier. The Company posted net income of $16,606
or $0.00 per share compared to a loss of $319,815 or $0.01 per share in the
same period last year. Typically, the summer months reflect lower seasonal
revenue; the Company anticipates this will be the case for the second quarter
while the Company focuses resource deployment on technology implementations.
