    ((*) EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, income taxes,
    depreciation and amortization. EBITDA is provided as a supplementary
    earnings measure to assist readers in determining the ability of the
    Company to generate cash from operations and to cover financial charges.
    It is also widely used for business valuation purposes. This measure does
    not have a standardized meaning prescribed by Canadian generally accepted
    accounting principles and may not be comparable to similar measures
    presented by other companies.)

    The increase in sales and gross profit is due to the sustained growth of
the Internet advertising market. The increase in net earnings is also due to
the absence, in 2007, of one-time charges incurred in 2006 related to the
signing of an employment agreement with the Vice-president, Sales, of the
    "BRANCHEZ-VOUS! continued to grow in sync with the Internet advertising
market", says Patrick Pierra, CEO of BRANCHEZ-VOUS!. "With net earnings
representing 14% of sales for the first six months of 2007 and 19% of sales in
the second quarter of 2007, we got back to a satisfying profit margin. We are
well positioned to benefit from the sustained growth of our market."
    These results contributed to increasing BRANCHEZ-VOUS! shareholders'
equity to $ 1.8 million, or 6 cents per share, as at June 30, 2007.
    On another matter, the Corporation granted 28,800 options to buy shares
of the corporation, at the exercise price of $ 0.60, to a director and a key
employee. This now brings to 1,124,800 the total number of options which are
currently active.
