Vigil Health Solutions Achieves Second Profitable Quarter

Revenue up 95% over Q1FYE09

VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 10, 2009) - Vigil Health Solutions Inc. ("Vigil") (TSX VENTURE:VGL) announces the results of operations for the quarter ending June 30, 2009.

"The company has continued to grow revenue and achieve profitability during the current challenging economic times. We are encouraged to see some improvements in the overall economy, specifically in lending for seniors housing and correspondingly anticipate renewed growth in the new construction segment of this market," stated Troy Griffiths, President and CEO of Vigil Health Solutions Inc. "Moreover, we have continued investing in sales and marketing, as well as new product development to position the company to best serve the built up demand in the industry as more new projects come on line."

Business highlights

- Income of $66 thousand in Q1FYE10 compared to a loss of $288 thousand in Q1FYE09

- 95% growth in revenue over Q1FYE09 to $1.37 million in Q1FYE10

- Third consecutive quarter of positive Adjusted Operating Income of $63 thousand

- Achieved gross margin of 48% for the quarter compared to 47% in Q1FYE09

Financial Results

Revenue for Q1FYE10 was $1.37 million compared to $701 thousand in Q1FYE09, an increase of 95%. There were 11 projects completed in the quarter compared to 8 in Q1FYE09.

Bookings for the quarter were $755 thousand, down 35% compared to $1.16 million in Q1FYE09. The decrease in bookings relates to a significant portion of new construction business in the United States being put on hold due to the current recession and credit crunch. This is validated by the fact that 72% of project bookings this quarter were retrofits.

At June 30, 2009, Vigil had a backlog of approximately $2.72 million (including $1.34 million in deposits and progress billings, recorded as deferred revenue on the balance sheet) as compared to approximately $3.97 million (including $1.66 million in deposits and progress billings, recorded as deferred revenue on the balance sheet) at June 30, 2008.

The gross margin percentage for Q1FYE10 was 48% compared to 47% for Q1FYE09. The gross margin was slightly higher than management's expectations of annual margins of between 42% and 47%. This was due to the product mix of the projects completed this quarter.

Operating expenses for Q1FYE10 were $599 thousand, down 2% from $614 thousand in the same quarter of the prior year. The decrease relates mainly to government funding received for salaries relating to a specific research project.

Income for Q1FYE10 was $66 thousand, or $0.001 per share compared to a loss of $288 thousand, or $0.003 per share for the same quarter in the previous year. The income reflects the large increase in revenue, strong margins, stable expenses and the Company's ability to minimize the impact of foreign exchange fluctuations.

Non-GAAP Measure

For the three months ended June 30, 2009, we are disclosing Adjusted Operating Income, a non-GAAP financial measure, as a supplementary indicator of operating performance. We define Adjusted Operating Income as net income before, interest, income taxes, amortization, and currency gains or losses including derivative foreign exchange differences. We are presenting the non-GAAP financial measure in our filings because we use it internally to make strategic decisions, forecast future results and to evaluate our performance and because we believe that our current and potential investors and analysts use the measure to assess current and future operating results and to make investment decisions. It is a non-GAAP measure, may not be comparable to other companies and it is not intended as a substitute for GAAP measures.
