Net earnings for nine months decreased to $8.4 million ($0.34 per share) compared with $10.4 million ($0.42 per share) last year. Last year’s third quarter earnings were higher due to the $1.6 million gain on the sale of capital assets. As at June 30, 2005, the total number of shares outstanding remains at 25 million.

Looking Forward

Revenue for the next 5 quarters are expected to match the previous year’s levels, however, we do forecast that our slow and steady gross margin improvement will continue and margins in the range of 18% - 20% are anticipated through the end of F2006. We will continue to monitor GSA expenses and will continue with necessary R&D expenses, which are required to retain our long term competitiveness in the marketplace.
