Lyrtech secures $1 million in purchase orders for distributors network

    - Company posts record high sales backlog -

    QUEBEC CITY, Nov. 20 /CNW/ - Lyrtech Inc. ("Lyrtech" or the "Company")
(TSX-V: LYT), a worldwide leader in digital signal processing ("DSP")
technologies with state of the art EMS facilities, announced today that its
distribution network obtained purchase orders totaling $1,033,500 between
August 1 and October 31, 2007. This amount is the highest ever recorded by
Lyrtech for a three-month period. Revenue recognition for these purchase
orders will start in January 2008. Regional breakdown reveals that 67% of
these orders originate from Europe, 26% from Asia, and 7% from other
countries. This geographic diversification will help reduce the Company's
exposure to the US dollar as these revenues will be generated in other foreign
currencies. The largest share of orders is for Lyrtech's Small Form Factor
Software-defined Radio Development Platform (SFF SDR DP) and associated
    The Company also currently has the highest backlog in its history, with
contracts worth $10.4 million to be delivered. Part of this amount is for the
major contract announced on November 7, 2007. Management believes that this
backlog amount positions the Company well to meet all its financial
obligations. In the scope of its normal activities, the Company reckons no
specific undisclosed reason for the stock's price recent decline.
    "Our distributors have improved their market penetration because our
traditional networks are generating more and more business referrals," said
Miguel Caron, President and Chief Executive Officer of Lyrtech. "These
referrals have translated into a record high backlog which is strengthening
our business outlook. We are working to drive efficiencies in our business to
enable us to address current challenges in the macroeconomic environment while
continuing to deliver best-in-class products and services to our customers."
