Proginet Announces Preliminary First-Quarter Financial Results

    GARDEN CITY, N.Y., November 14 /CNW/ - Proginet Corporation (OTCBB:
PRGF), developer of enterprise security software, today announced preliminary
(unaudited) financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2008, which
ended October 31, 2007. Proginet expects that total revenues for the quarter
will amount to approximately $2 million, compared to $1.9 million in the
equivalent period last year. With operating expenses for the quarter amounting
to $2.4 million, the Company expects to report a net loss of approximately
$400,000. The Company's cash position remains strong, at approximately $3

    "Proginet has been busy executing according to its 2008 business plan,
which calls for a major expansion in sales, marketing, and communications
activities to help grow the business," stated Kevin M. Kelly, Proginet's
President and CEO. "These initiatives are now fully underway and the
substantial related expenses are reflected in our bottom-line numbers."

    "We've retained a leading public relations agency focused on
high-technology, we've attended several industry conferences, including the IT
ChannelVision event, where Proginet generated many new channel partner
opportunities and received the 'Best Channel Strategy Award', and we've
engaged in new lead generation programs with a number of the industry's
leading syndication services," he continued. "These are critical programs for
the Company. From that perspective, the quarter represents the foundation for
Proginet's long-term growth, and the linchpin for the success of fiscal 2008
overall. As I stated in our recent conference call, the primary metric for
Proginet's performance is the full year's performance, with less emphasis on
quarterly results in isolation."

    "Kevin's statement echoes many of the things outlined in our recent
conference call when we reviewed the 2008 business plan," commented Debra
DiMaria, Proginet's Chief Financial Officer. "Operating expenses for the
quarter are up almost 20% over last year, and will remain higher as we execute
according to the business plan. What also impacted our numbers this quarter
was that we were unable to close any large deals, which our sales team
attribute to the longer sales cycles typical of larger deals. Additionally,
we've established a large reserve for a sale recorded in Q4 of 2007, but not
yet collected on," she concluded.

    "On a final note, I would like to clarify something important but
unrelated," stated Kevin M. Kelly. "Proginet will continue with the expansion
of its sales and sales-support teams in the year ahead, just as we have done
in Q1. This is contrary to an inaccurate article that appeared last week on a
UK technology Web site. Proginet would like to confirm that it is wholly
committed to its direct sales strategy, and that it is, in fact, actively
seeking to expand its direct sales team. In parallel, we will continue
pursuing our channel partner initiatives so that we can better leverage
opportunities in the channel, where we believe we can achieve targeted success
in specific vertical and geographic markets."

    Proginet points out that all estimates are preliminary, and that
differences may arise between estimates and actual results, which will be
available when the Company and its auditors complete their review of the
Company's results for the first quarter of fiscal 2008. The Company will
report first quarter 2008 financial results on November 20, 2007, with an
investor conference call scheduled for the same day (full details below).
