April 30, 2008

Omni-Lite Industries Canada Inc., in the year ended Dec. 31, 2007, increased its revenue 39 per cent over fiscal 2006. These results are largely the effect of growth experienced in the military and aerospace divisions. In 2007, the military and aerospace divisions accounted for approximately 68 per cent of revenue, up from 57 per cent in 2006. In the 2007 fiscal period, EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) increased 76 per cent and cash flow increased 65 per cent. Net income increased 58 per cent.

"In 2007, gross margins were 70 per cent, an increase from 65 per cent in fiscal 2006. This increased productivity was highlighted by the fact that the company manufactured approximately 74 million components in 2007, an increase of 90 per cent from 2006. The significant efforts to improve productivity made in the last year are continuing to pay dividends as the company estimates gross margin for the first quarter 2008 at approximately 73 per cent," stated David Grant, chairman and chief executive officer. "As the company adopts the Vision 2015 plan approved by the board in February, 2008, further build out in the infrastructure of the company is under way. The company has added new design and engineering capabilities, and is actively looking for a 60,000- to 70,000-square-foot building in the vicinity of the current 30,900-square-foot building in Cerritos. To meet the significant opportunities that the company is fortunate to have on the table will require considerable continued investment by the company within the next 24 months. Many of the very large programs that the company is developing products for could be in production in 2009 and 2010."

Revenue in the fiscal 2007 period was $6,983,845 (U.S.), up from $5,007,061 (U.S.) in 2006.
