Omni-Lite Industries Canada Inc.

May 1, 2007

For the year ended Dec. 31, 2006, Omni-Lite Industries Canada Inc.'s revenue increased 15 per cent over fiscal 2005. This is the first year that the company has exceeded $5-million in revenue. These results are largely the effect of growth experienced in the aerospace, military and specialty automotive divisions. All financial amounts are reported in United States dollars, unless otherwise indicated.

"In 2006, Omni-Lite focused on several difficult projects that increased expenses significantly. These projects only began to add to revenue in first quarter of 2007. In addition, in 2006, the company had to consolidate the financial results of California Nanotechnologies Inc., a partially owned California corporation set up to conduct research into the commercialization of nanocrystalline materials," stated David F. Grant, chairman and chief executive officer. "The implementation of our vision 2010 plan has led to a significant increase in production capabilities, tooling support infrastructure, quality control systems and world-class laboratory facilities. This progress is evident in the increase in the number of components manufactured in first quarter 2007. In first quarter 2007, approximately 16.9 million components were manufactured versus 6.8 million components manufactured in first quarter of 2006. On a quarter-to-quarter basis, the production in the company increased by 2.5 times. These results were evident in the 61-per-cent increase in revenue in first quarter of 2007."

Revenue in the fiscal 2006 period was $5,007,061 ($5,840,236 (Canadian)). Cash flow over the same period was $1,490,916 ($1,739,004 (Canadian)) down 24 per cent for the year. Net income was $1,001,312 ($1,167,930 (Canadian)), a decrease of 20 per cent for the year. Gross margins for the year were 65 per cent and net margins were 20 per cent.
