May 22, 2008

For the quarter ended March 31, 2008, Omni-Lite Industries Canada Inc. posted record revenue, earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and cash flow. In this period, revenue rose 20 per cent and cash flow increased by 42 per cent over the corresponding period in 2007. These results are largely the effect of increased activities in the military and aerospace divisions. "The first quarter was a very successful period for Omni-Lite. The implementation of the Vision 2010 strategy, which includes additional equipment and engineering and design personnel, is starting to show significant benefit," stated Paul A. Burkey, president and chief operating officer. "In addition, the company's activities in both the military and aerospace sectors are showing momentum, a fact that may help to provide growing sales for many years to come." All figures are in U.S. dollars unless otherwise specified.

Revenue in first quarter was $1,959,467 ($2,004,927 (Canadian)). This increase in revenue reflects a 20-per-cent gain over the same period in 2007. EBITDA over the period was $981,842, a slight increase over the 979,861 reported in 2007. Cash flow over the same period was $883,657 ($904,158 (Canadian)), up 42 per cent. Net income was $519,498 ($531,550 (Canadian)), a decrease of 29 per cent for the same period of 2007. Net income was affected by a large increase in the tax provision and by a non-cash item recorded in 2007 upon the spinoff of California Nanotechnologies. Gross margins for the period were 73 per cent and net margins were 27 per cent. The table summarizes these results.
