that on May 6, 2008, the shareholders of Biorem Inc. ("Biorem") elected Mr.

    Non-GAAP Measures
    "EBITDA", "Order Bookings", and "Order Backlog" do not have any
standardized meaning prescribed by Canadian generally accepted accounting
principles ("GAAP") and may not be comparable to measures presented by other

    EBITDA is used to denote earnings (loss) from operations and represents
earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. EBITDA
should not be construed as a substitute for net income determined in
accordance with GAAP. This measure is important to the Company since it is
used by potential investors and lenders to evaluate the ongoing cash
generating capability of the Company and thus the amounts they are willing to
invest and lend to the Company.

    Order Bookings and Order Backlog are non-GAAP measures that the Company
uses to evaluate its sales performance. Order Bookings are those binding
contracts that the Company enters into with a third party for the delivery of
our products or services. As Order Bookings are received, the contract value
(before any associated sales taxes) is included in the Order Backlog. The
Order Backlog is reduced by the revenue that is recognized on each project.
