    TORONTO, May 27 /CNW/ - YANGAROO Inc. (TSX-V: YOO, OTC: YOOIF), the
industry's leading secure digital media distribution company, today announced
results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2009. Revenues for the first
quarter of 2009 set a new record for the company and were 43% higher than for
the same period in 2008. First quarter revenues increased 31% over the
revenues for the preceding fourth quarter of 2008. EBITDA (earnings before
interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) for the first quarter of 2009
improved by 33% over the same period in 2008. Cash and cash equivalents at
March 31, 2009 were $2,248,000.
    Other highlights from the first quarter of 2009 include the launch of the
next generation of YANGAROO'S patented Digital Media Distribution System -
DMDS 5.0, the use of the new DMDS 5.0 platform to power the 2009 JUNO Awards
for The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS), and the
allowance and subsequent grant of the company's United States patent No.
7,529,712 titled "Content Distribution System and Method".
    "The growth in revenue shows that DMDS' adoption across North America
continues to accelerate," said YANGAROO President & CEO John Heaven. "Not only
are existing partners increasingly relying on it, but DMDS 5.0 has been
embraced by the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences and demonstrated
how cost-effective, environmentally friendly and less labour-intensive it is.
In addition, the grant of our third patent has further recognized and
protected our sector leading technology innovations."
