NTG Clarity Networks Inc. Announces Year End 2009 Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 29, 2010) - NTG Clarity Networks Inc., (TSX VENTURE:NCI), a world leader in the telecommunications OSS market, today reported its 2009 year end results for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2009 (all figures in Canadian Dollars).

The Company reported revenues of $6,114,421 for 2009, an increase from $5,485,169 for the same period last year. The net income for the year was $220,556 in 2009 compared to a net income of $539,418 for the comparable period last year. This was due primarily to a foreign exchange loss of $372,905 as a result of a weaker U.S. dollar.

Due to the continued profitability of the company, NTG further strengthened its balance sheet and now has positive working capital of $1,963,925 ($0.08 per share) and long-term debt of only $367,945.

"During 2009, we implemented an aggressive marketing program for the Middle East that resulted in contracts with major carriers, increased our revenue by 10% and positioned us for growth" said Ashraf Zaghloul, Chairman and CEO.

"To build on our success, we will continue to aggressively market in the Middle East as it has large infrastructure and telecom projects. We believe our joint venture with Al Mozoon Group is key to our success in expanding our products and services in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia and positions us into becoming a major player in the telecom sector there."

"The NTG team is committed to the objective of becoming one of the leading names in the industry and is well positioned to meet future challenges".
