    Revenues totaled $431,133 for the three month period ended June 30th,
2007, a 4% increase over the $413,410 in revenues reported for the same period
last year. Revenue was lower than expected due to the strengthening Canadian
dollar adversely affecting US sales and the training of additional sales
staff.
    Cost of sales for the current period under review was $104,849, resulting
in a gross profit, before expenses, of $326,284 for an operating margin of
76%, compared with a 78% margin for the same period last year.
    Expenses increased by 56% for the current period under review to $422,526
from $271,278, as the Company increased the depth of personnel in the sales,
production and finance departments, accelerated our marketing efforts in the
US market and took a non-cash expense of $55,816 for stock based compensation.
    Development costs, totaled $34,591 for the three months ending  June 30,
2007, compared to $3,529 for the same period in 2006. The increase in
development costs for the current period under review are due to two factors;
the development of the TLC-2000 biofeedback technology and the development of
the 3 lead photo dynamic compounds for the TLC-3000 photo dynamic technology
project.
    The Company reported a loss of $95,177 for the three month period ended
June 30th, 2007, but after accounting for non cash expenses such as
amortization and stock-based compensation, the Company would have reported a
positive contribution of $2,118.

    Corporate developments during the period:

    Biofeedback Laser Technology Advance

    Theralase's patented TLC-2000 biofeedback technology established a new
standard in the therapeutic laser marketplace by introducing technology that
is able to precisely target tissue to within a millimeter with an exact dosage
of energy; hence, dramatically improving the efficacy of patient based
treatments. The TLC-2000 is also a learning device that memorizes successful
laser dosages and transmits these to all users through a Theralase proprietary
HIPAA compliant central databank. Theralase is in the alpha prototype stage of
the project and is targeting introduction of the TLC-2000 biofeedback
technology to the international medical market in the 2nd quarter 2008.

    Cancer Therapy and Wound Healing

    On July 23rd, 2007, Theralase in conjunction with University Health
Network (UHN) and the Ontario Centres of Excellence's (OCE) Centre of
Excellence for Photonics commenced a two year project focused at harnessing
the energy of these PDC's with the power of the patented Theralase laser
technology in the destruction of cancer, bacterium (wound healing), viruses
and fat cells. Analysis of the PDC's commenced 3rd quarter 2007, with initial
results expected 1st quarter 2008. Commencement of the Theralase TLC-3000
laser system to activate the compounds is scheduled to commence 2nd quarter
2008.
