Zim Corporation announces first quarter 2009 financial results

    OTTAWA, Aug. 18 /CNW Telbec/ - ZIM Corporation (OTCBB: ZIMCF), a provider
of software products and services for the database, mobile and IPTV markets;
today announced its results for the quarter ended June 30, 2008. All figures
presented are calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting
principles (GAAP) in the United States and presented in US dollars.
    Revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2008 was $439,330, a decrease from
$538,027 for the same period last year. As previously announced, ZIM's
decrease in revenue is primarily attributable to the decline in revenue from
our Mobile segment.
    Net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2008 was $35,411 or a basic and
diluted loss per share of $NIL. The net loss for the same period last year was
$97,397 or a basic and diluted loss per share of $0.001. The decrease in net
loss is a reflection of the Company's reduction in selling and general
administrative expenses, increased gross margins and an increase in revenue
from maintenance and consulting services related to our database products.
    ZIM had cash of $401,525 at June 30, 2008 as compared to cash of $299,943
as at March 31, 2008 with no other outstanding debt.

expense reductions" said Dr. Michael Cowpland, President and CEO of ZIM. "Our
current cost structure continues to improve and supports our continuing
