    Full year license revenues for 2006 are up 134% over the prior year with
the inclusion of Wellcore sales plus significant Oncore sales in the fourth
quarter. Services have increased due to an increase in chargeable projects and
manpower utilization.
    Total expenses are up over 2005 due to the inclusion of operating costs
attributable to the Malibu acquisition plus growth in operating and sales
resulting from new hires this year. Fourth quarter 2006 expenses are up over
the same quarter last year largely due to the growth in personnel in
anticipation of higher sales and the impact of restructuring costs. These

    Notes to Table

    (1) "EBITDAS" means earnings from continuing operations before interest,
        taxes, depreciation, amortization, foreign exchange, and stock based
        compensation. It may be derived by subtracting stock based
        compensation from the subtotal titled Loss before the undernoted on
        the Statement of Loss and Deficit. EBITDAS does not have a
        standardized meaning under Canadian GAAP and may not be comparable to
        other entities in the industry; however, the Company believes it is
        an important indicator of success for software businesses and is
        relevant to readers within the investment community.
