Radiant Energy Corporation Announces 2009 Year End Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 26, 2010) - Radiant Energy Corporation (TSX VENTURE:RDT) ("Radiant" or the "Company") (amounts in U.S. dollars), the developer and marketer of radiant aircraft de-icing systems, announced its results for the year ended October 31, 2009, which are also available on SEDAR.

The Company reported a loss of $2,048,453, or $0.01 per share for the year ended October 31, 2009 compared with a loss of $3,831,130, or $0.02 per share for the year ended October 31, 2008. The loss reported for 2009 from the Company's continuing operations was $1,838,622 compared with a loss for the 2008 year of $3,534,365. Revenues of $431,948 for the year ended October 31, 2009 were sixty percent higher than in 2008. Operating expenses decreased substantially during 2009 as a result of a reduction of accruals related to the dismantling of a de-icing facility expensed in the prior year, lower amounts recorded on the granting of stock options, lower professional fees and other cost reductions. The results of the Company's Norwegian operation are reported as a discontinued operation in the Company's consolidated financial statements. Losses from the discontinued operation of $209,831 resulted from foreign exchange translation.

For the three months ended October 31, 2009, the Company reported a loss of $431,876 compared with income $759,169 for the three-month period ended October 31, 2008. The loss from continuing operations of $344,726 for the three-month period in 2009 was $513,533 lower than the loss of $858,259 in 2008, as a result of lower operating costs, the positive impact of a foreign exchange translation gain and a decrease in losses from debt settlements. A loss of $87,150 for the discontinued operation for the three month period ended October 31, 2009 resulted from foreign exchange translation. This compared with a large gain in the prior year period of $1,617,428 resulting from debt settlement gains, gains related to the disposal of the de-icing facility and foreign exchange translation gains.
