The corporation has commenced the process for revocation of the cease trade orders.

First quarter 2005 results

For the quarter ended March 31, 2005, Omni-Lite Industries Canada Inc. reported revenue of $923,660 ($1,124,371 (Canadian)), a new record. In this quarter, the aerospace division primarily drove growth with a 231-per-cent increase over the same period in 2004. The growth in the aerospace division reflects the increased requirement for Omni-Lite's components and the completion of several research and development projects. The favourable growth rates were offset by reductions of revenue in the military and automotive divisions of 33 per cent and 29 per cent, respectively. In the military division, sales are steady and are expected to grow in the second half of 2005. The decline in revenue in the automotive division reflects the phasing out of certain components which have been replaced by a new design, which is also provided by Omni-Lite. Over all, revenues increased by 35 per cent.

Net income for the first quarter of 2005 was $309,156 ($379,427 (Canadian)) or three cents (four Canadian cents) per common share. This compares with net income of $265,782 or three cents per share in the first quarter of last year, an increase of 16 per cent.

(1) Cash flow from operations is a non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) term requested by the oil and gas investment community that represents net earnings adjusted for non-cash items including depreciation, depletion and amortization, future income taxes, asset writedowns, and gains (losses) on sale of assets, if any. Cash flow per share is calculated by dividing cash flow from operations as previously described by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period.

Year-end 2004 results

For the year ended Dec. 31, 2004, Omni-Lite Industries Canada reported revenue of $3,153,655 ($3,799,524 (Canadian)), an increase of 8 per cent. The sports and recreation division represented the largest portion of sales with 30 per cent of revenue, down from 36 per cent in 2003. As the other divisions continue to grow, the amount of revenue becomes less weighted toward sports and recreation, allowing for more balanced revenue streams. Aerospace division sales contributed 28 per cent of the revenue, up from 24 per cent in 2003. The automotive and military divisions provided 14 per cent and 21 per cent of the revenue, respectively. The commercial division contributed the remaining 7 per cent of revenue.

Net income was $768,297 ($925,644 (Canadian)) compared with $682,404 ($883,440 (Canadian)) in 2003.

Earnings per share were nine cents (11 Canadian cents) compared with seven cents, based on the weighted average shares outstanding of 8,558,412. A total of 435,000 common shares were repurchased in 2004 through the normal course issuer bid, which reduced the actual number of outstanding shares to 8,298,303.

For the year, cash flow from operations increased by 19 per cent to $1,185,472 ($1,428,257 (Canadian)). This reflects the increase in revenue and amortization expense, which is non-cash.
