    Sales for the second quarter were of 2007 were 50% higher than Q2 06. In
particular, license revenues for the first half of 2007 compared to the first
half of 2006 are up 72%. This higher percentage of license sales has
contributed to a gross margin increase from 57% to 71% for the same periods.
    Staff reductions and other cost cutting measures implemented in 2006,
have succeeded in reducing expenses by approximately 21% for the six months
ended June 30, 2007 compared to the same period in 2006. In addition to the
cost cutting measures, the Company is reallocating resources from overhead and
operations to sales and marketing.
    In June the company raised $2.3 million (net of issue costs) through the
private placement of common shares and warrants. These funds will be used to
increase market penetration in the United States, accelerate new product
development and augment working capital.

    (1) "Gross profit" is revenue less cost of sales and gross margin is
        gross profit divided by revenue expressed as a percentage.
    (2) "EBITDAS" means earnings from continuing operations before interest,
        taxes, depreciation, amortization and stock based compensation. It
        may be derived by subtracting stock based compensation (other than
        expenses resulting from the Share Accumulation Plan which are cash
        based) from the subtotal titled "Income (loss) before the
        undernoted" on the Statement of Operations and Deficit.

        Gross profit, gross margin and EBITDAS do not have a standardized
        meaning under GAAP and may not be comparable to the same terms as
        used by other entities in the industry; however, the Company believes
        they are an important measure of performance and indicator of success
        for software businesses and are relevant to readers within the
        investment community.
