Financial Results

The following review of results includes ProSep Inc. financial results as
at the end of March 31, 2008 for a three-month period.

$9,117,043. Of the total revenue, $7,767,263 was generated from conventional
products and $1,349,780 from proprietary products.

Gross profit was $2,652,556, or 29% of revenues, for the first quarter of

technologies reduces sales volatility and provides the possibility to increase
profitability.

2008. The majority of expenses are related to salaries, travel expenses, and
professional fees paid to sales and marketing experts in Houston, Montreal and
Norway.

period ended March 31, 2008. This amount is mostly comprised of salaries.

2008, totalled $2,229,348. Of the total G&A expenses for the three month
period ended March 31, 2008, the most significant expenses related to
salaries, professional fees and office infrastructure.

The Company reports a net improvement of EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest
Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization) from ($1,863,748) for the three-month
period ended March 31, 2007 to ($441,061) for the same period ended March 31,
2008, which includes $368,000 of non-recurring items.

Financing charges reached $1,958,870 for the quarter ended March 31, 2008
