Enablence Technologies Inc. Announces Results for the Two Months Ended June 30, 2010

OTTAWA, CANADA--(Marketwire - Aug. 26, 2010) - Enablence Technologies Inc. ("Enablence" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:ENA), a leading supplier of fiber-to-the-home ("FTTH") equipment for triple-play residential and business services and optical components and subsystems for access, metro and long-haul markets, announced today financial results for the two months ending June 30, 2010.

($000, except EPS) Two Months June 30, 2010   Three Month July 31, 2009  
Revenue $9,798   $12,586  
Operating loss 4,285   8,082  
Net loss 3,308   6,883  
E.P.S. $(0.01 ) $(0.03 )
Operating cash flows(1) $(2,893 ) $(5,530 )
1. Operating Cash Flows in a non-GAAP measure of the cash generated from or used in operating by adding back to the Net Cash from (used in) Operations for all non-cash expenses including amortization, stock-based compensation, unrealized foreign exchange gains and losses, changes to future tax recoveries and changes to inventory valuation allowances.  

On July 25, 2010 the Company changed its 2011 year end from April 30 to June 30. The current fiscal year will cover the 14 months from May 1, 2010 to June 30, 2011. Enablence will report its results for the two months ended June 30, 2010 and the four quarters ending September 30, 2010, December 31, 2010, March 31, 2011 and June 30, 2011. 

The results of operations for the two months of the current fiscal period are not comparable to the results of operations for the three months ended July 31, 2009. Revenues are not earned evenly through the quarter, while most of the operating expenses are. As is the case with many companies, the third month of each quarter generally has significantly higher revenue than either of the first two months of a quarter. Cost of revenues is not incurred in an even manner throughout the quarter, as significant elements of the cost of revenues, such as materials and cost of contract manufacturing, vary with revenues. The results of operating reflect the performance of Teledata Networks Ltd. ("Teledata") for the week following its acquisition on June 23, 2010.

Enablence's cash and cash equivalents were $6.9 million at June 30, 2010 as compared to $23.4 million at April 30, 2010. This net decrease of $16.5 million was the result investing $10.7 million for the cash portion of the acquisition of Teledata (less $1.5 million of cash in Teledata at the date of acquisition), $3.9 million of restricted cash to secure Teledata's operating loans, and $2.9 million used to fund the operating loss for the period.

"This two month period represents the transition from the Enablence business that preceded the acquisition of Teledata to the business including Teledata's customer base and products effective June 23, 2010. Our focus is now on integrating and growing the combined business profitably," said Tim Thorsteinson, Chief Executive Officer.
