"DEQ has yet again delivered another solid quarter of product penetration and growth as well as overall company performance," stated Earle G. Hall, President & CEO of DEQ. "The trend is clear; we obtain an operating license and we see product penetration almost immediately. In these very difficult economic times we can say that we are doing quite well. With increased recurring revenue by 70%, a gross margin of 90%, positive cash flows and a solid bank account, we are in a very envious position. Our promised cost control measures have yielded results and we have seen a 7% decrease in our operating expenses. Our focus now turns to increasing our operational penetration while increasing our scope of products. As well, it goes without saying that we plan to maintain a lean business model that produces hallmark results such as a 90% margin."
