CALGARY, May 6 /CNW/ - (TSX: HEM)   Hemisphere GPS today provided preliminary revenues and a conference call notice for its 2011 first quarter financial results.  Preliminary revenues for the first quarter of 2011 are approximately $21M, representing a year-over-year increase of approximately 40% over revenues of $15M for the first quarter of 2010.

In compliance with the Canadian Accounting Standards Board (AcSB) for all Canadian Publicly Accountable Enterprises in 2011, beginning in the first quarter, Hemisphere GPS adopts International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).
