<p><location>MONTREAL</location>, <chron>Nov. 13</chron> /CNW Telbec/ - Noveko International Inc. ("the Company") today announces its results for the first quarter ended <chron>September 30, 2009</chron>.</p>
<p>"We almost doubled our revenues in the first quarter and significantly reduced our loss from the same period of last year, which proves we are really starting to reap the benefits of our accelerated growth. We were pleased to achieve considerable progress in the commercialization of our antimicrobial products with new distribution agreements with BLD Distribution, L.L.C. and SappTech Sdn Bhd and a substantial increase in orders for our masks and hand sanitizers. We are confident we can keep up this momentum, especially since the refocusing of our mask marketing strategy in <location>North America</location> will give us access to a wider, fast-growing market. In addition, we recently concluded a financing agreement of more than <money>$15 million</money> that reflects the market confidence in our business model. We are actively pursuing our efforts to achieve other major advances in sales and profitability in upcoming quarters," indicated André Leroux, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of the Company.</p>

    Analysis of Operating Results

</pre>
<p/>
<p>As indicated in the Annual Management's Report for the fiscal year ended <chron>June 30, 2009</chron>, we now report segmented information based on the following business segments: medical equipment, sanitizers, antimicrobial surgical masks and respirators, filtration products and other activities consisting primarily of the activities of the parent company, Noveko International Inc. ("Noveko International"), and Noveko Trading 2008 LLC ("Noveko Trading"), as well as the marketing management services offered by Magnum Pharmaceutics Inc. ("Magnum") to external clients.</p>
<p>Furthermore, as Bolduc Leroux Inc.'s ("BLI") activities no longer fit with our growth strategy, we are actively continuing our efforts to divest this subsidiary. Accordingly, BLI's results of operations and assets and liabilities have been withdrawn from continuing operations to be treated as discontinued operations in the Company's financial statements.</p>

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Consolidated revenues for the first quarter ended September 30, 2009 grew
by $2.2 million or 97.9% to $4.5 million. This growth came primarily from:

    - the medical equipment segment, whose revenues increased by
      $0.7 million, reflecting the contribution of SARL Noveko Algérie
      ("Noveko Algérie") - acquired in July 2008 - and the increase in its
      sales, and of S.A.S. E.C.M. ("ECM"), which started to benefit from the
      launch of its new Imagyne(TM) for use in human medicine and the gradual
      recovery in the bovine and swine markets; and
    - the sanitizers and masks segments, which posted revenue increases of
      $0.7 million and $0.8 million respectively, driven by the sharp rise in
      demand in the context of the A (H1N1) influenza pandemic threat.
    
</pre>
<p/>
<p>The operating profit margin was 49.0% for the quarter ended <chron>September 30, 2009</chron>, compared with 52.6% for the quarter ended <chron>September 30, 2008</chron>. This decline is due primarily to the different product mix resulting from the acquisitions closed during the previous year and downward adjustments in the prices of filtration products for livestock farms and medical equipment for use in veterinary medicine.</p>
<p>Selling and administrative expenses increased by approximately <money>$0.2 million to $3.8 million</money>. This slight rise stemmed primarily from the costs related to product marketing and selling initiatives in the various business segments.</p>
<p>Stock-based compensation charge, which has no impact on the Company's cash balance, decreased by <money>$1.8 million</money> from the first quarter of the previous year to <money>$1.3 million</money>. Primarily as part of the acquisitions closed at the beginning of the previous year, the Company had granted stock options to employees and consultants entitling them to purchase a total of 2,950,000 Class A shares at a weighted average exercise price of <money>$2.76</money> per share with a vesting period extending over 12 to 30 months. The change in stock-based compensation charge between the first quarter ended <chron>September 30, 2009</chron> and the first quarter ended <chron>September 30, 2008</chron> thus stems from the fact that stock-based compensation is recorded gradually.</p>

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Considering the aforementioned factors, the loss before amortization,
financial expenses, income taxes and discontinued operations amounted to
approximately $3.0 million, down by $2.8 million from the first quarter ended
September 30, 2008. The following business segments contributed to this
significant improvement:

    - the medical equipment segment posted earnings before amortization,
      financial expenses and income taxes (EBITDA) of $0.1 million, compared
      with a loss of $0.4 million for the corresponding quarter of the
      previous year. This variation reflects Noveko Algérie's contribution
      and improvement in profitability, as well as that of ECM;
    - the sanitizers segment lowered its loss by approximately $0.3 million
      thanks to a strong increase in the AZURO(TM) products sales volume and
      an almost nil stock-based compensation charge for the quarter;
    - the masks segment recorded EBITDA of $39,414, up from a loss of
      $0.8 million for the corresponding quarter of the previous year, thanks
      to a significant increase in sales and operating profit margin and a
      decrease in stock-based compensation charge;
    - conversely, the filtration products segment increased its loss by
      approximately $0.3 million due notably to the higher administrative
      expenses and stock-based compensation charge of Noveko Taiwan, which
      was only in its start-up phase during the first quarter of the previous
      year;
    - as for the other activities, they lowered their loss by $1.5 million,
      due primarily to the decrease in Noveko International's stock-based
      compensation charge.

    Amortization expenses increased by $0.2 million to $0.6 million. This rise
is primarily attributable to intangible assets, notably patents in the
filtration products segment and the purchase of software for the Company's new
ERP management system.

    Quarter Highlights and Subsequent Events
    ----------------------------------------
    
</pre>
<p/>
<p>Distribution Agreement with BLD Distribution, L.L.C. - for the sale and promotion of the hand sanitizers within the <location>United States</location> to the foodservices and educational segments, industrial sectors such as janitorial, warehousing and farming, and government and pharmaceutical entities. BLD committed to purchase hand sanitizers from Noveko Inc. ("Noveko") for an amount of at least US$3 million within the first year.</p>
<p>Licence and Supply Agreement with Microban Internatinal Ltd. - global leader in built-in antimicrobial product protection, offering durable antimicrobial solutions for consumer, industrial and healthcare products around the world, granted us the right to sell our line of AZURO(TM) hand sanitizers under the Microban(R) brand name. This global agreement also granted us the right to use the Microban(R) brand as the lead/host brand or ingredient brand, and the right and licence to use the Microban(R) antimicrobial technology and proprietary antimicrobial additives in the manufacture of Noveko(TM) surgical masks and respirators through <chron>December 31, 2012</chron>.</p>
<p>Air Transat Chooses Noveko(TM) Antimicrobial Technology - first order from Air Transat obtained in <chron>September 2009</chron> for some 500,000 Noveko(TM) antimicrobial masks and respirators as well as for AZURO(TM) hand sanitizers. Additional orders are expected within the near term. The antimicrobial products purchased by Air Transat are intended to protect the airline's passengers, flight personnel and ground crew. Furthermore, discussions are still under way with Air Transat and the French company Aerosys Technologies to obtain the required certifications in order to equip Air Transat's aircraft fleet with filters incorporating Noveko's antimicrobial filtration technology.</p>
<p>Distribution Agreement with SappTech - agreement with an initial term of three years, covering the distribution of our antimicrobial masks and respirators and hand sanitizers in <location>Malaysia</location>, <location>Singapore</location>, <location>Indonesia</location>, <location>Thailand</location>, and in the State of <location>Brunei Darussalam</location>. This agreement also covers Epurair's air purifiers. SappTech has undertaken to purchase a minimum of 100 million masks over the term of the agreement for an estimated value of approximately <money>$25 million</money>.</p>
<p>Agreement with McKesson Logistics Solutions - agreement with McKesson Logistics Solutions ("MSL"), Canada's leading third-party logistics provider for the healthcare industry, pursuant to which MSL provides us with order-to-cash logistics management services, including order fulfillment, storage, inventory and transportation management, for the distribution of our Noveko(TM) surgical masks and respirators and hand sanitizers.</p>
<p>Closing of a Private Placement for Total Gross Proceeds of <money>$15.7 Million</money> - On <chron>October 8, 2009</chron>, we announced the closing of an initial amount of <money>$11.7 million</money> units in connection with a best efforts private placement (the "Offering). On <chron>October 27, 2009</chron>, we closed this Offering when the Agents exercised in whole the option granted to them pursuant to the agency agreement, generating additional gross proceeds of <money>$4 million</money>, for total gross proceeds of <money>$15.7 million</money> under the Offering. Each unit was offered at <money>$2.20</money> and consisted of one (1) Class A Share of the Company (one "Class A Share") and one-half of one Class A share purchase warrant (each whole Class A Share Purchase Warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles its holder to purchase a Class A Share, at a price of <money>$3.00</money> per share for a period of 36 months ending on <chron>October 8, 2012</chron>, subject to an exercise period acceleration clause. Accordingly, we issued a total of 7,156,000 Class A Shares under the Offering and 3,578,000 Class A Shares may be issued upon due exercise of the Warrants.</p>
<p>Increased Demand and Production for our Masks and Respirators - On <chron>September 24, 2009</chron>, we announced that the value of our firm orders for our masks, for the period beginning <chron>July 1st, 2009</chron>, totalled <money>$12 million</money>, representing a quantity of approximately 50 million masks, reflecting a sharp increase in the demand. Since then, Malaysian-based SappTech has undertaken to purchase a minimum of 100 million masks, for an estimated value of approximately <money>$25 million</money> over a three-year period. In addition to these orders, negotiations are still under way with various potential distributors and clients with respect to several other orders.</p>
<p>We are still discussing with various suppliers to increase the assembly pace of the materials used in the manufacture of our masks and remain on the lookout for opportunities to expand our production more efficiently. We expect to reach a monthly production rate of about 9 million face masks in the current quarter and to continue gradually increasing it throughout the fiscal year.</p>
<p>Increased Demand and Production for our Sanitizers - The current context of a pandemic had led to a sharp increase in the demand for sanitizers. To that effect, we announced, on <chron>September 24, 2009</chron>, that the value of our firm orders for our hand sanitizers, for the period beginning <chron>July 1st, 2009</chron>, currently totalled <money>$6 million</money>.</p>
<p>Refocusing our strategy for the marketing of our masks and respirators in <location>North America</location> - On <chron>November 6, 2009</chron>, we announced that we are refocusing our strategy for the marketing of our Noveko(TM) masks and respirators in <location>North America</location>. In this regard, the initial 510(k) submission for the Noveko(TM) 3xEZ antibacterial surgical mask to the US Food and Drug Administration ("the FDA") ("the initial FDA submission") has been withdrawn. The prevailing A (H1N1) influenza virus pandemic context and the time and cost imperatives associated with the initial FDA submission process - which took longer and proved more complex than initially expected, moreover being limited to the Noveko(TM) 3xEZ surgical mask which had only an antibacterial claim - led us to refocus our strategy to prioritize the accelerated marketing of our Noveko(TM) masks and respirators in the <location>United States</location>, outside healthcare institutions, as well as in <location>North America</location>, globally.</p>
<p>We will submit to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health ("NIOSH") an application for the certifications (N95, N99) still generally used in the North American market, for our Noveko(TM) masks and respirators, which we could not do while the initial FDA submission was underway. Even though Noveko(TM) masks integrate antimicrobial ingredients, some markets still seek NIOSH recognition when making their purchasing decisions, although NIOSH standards are only particle filtration standards.</p>
<p>We believe that the North American population would benefit from having faster access, as is the case in many other markets worldwide, to our antimicrobial masks and respirators, which have been tested and proven effective not only in filtering out, but also in neutralizing a broad spectrum of viruses and bacteria. We also plan to submit the mask product labelling to the US Environmental Protection Agency ("EPA") for certification for industrial use, as the antimicrobial chemical additive incorporated into Noveko(TM) masks and respirators is already EPA registered under the US Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Program.</p>
<p>Refocusing our strategy will also allow us to concentrate on developing the test protocols and obtaining the required performance data to support a new application to market our Noveko(TM) masks and respirators with an antiviral claim for healthcare institutions in the <location>United States</location>. As previously announced on <chron>September 11, 2009</chron>, at a formal pre-IDE (investigational device exemption) meeting with the FDA, we held discussions with respect to an additional claim that would allow Noveko(TM) masks and respirators to be marketed as a medical device reducing the exposure to airborne influenza particles. The FDA has indicated that it would treat any file supporting such an antiviral claim in priority. Furthermore, a new submission to the FDA by Noveko would allow the Company to include all the improvements currently developed in the design and antimicrobial properties of the Noveko(TM) masks and respirators since the filing of the initial FDA submission.</p>
