Blackline GPS Corp. Reports 1st Quarter 2010 Financial Results

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - March 26, 2010) -


Blackline GPS Corp. (TSX VENTURE:BLN) ("Blackline" or "the Company") is pleased to report its financial results for the first quarter ended January 31, 2010.

Revenue for the quarter was $0.350 million compared to $0.235 million for the first quarter of 2009, an increase of approximately 49%. This increase was a result of revenues from the fourth quarter 2009 introduction of the Escort® Entourage™ CIS and Escort® Entourage™ PS vehicle security and recovery products, both powered by Blackline GPS, and from increased service revenues as the user base of the Company's products grows.

The Company also continued to grow its product suite and distribution channels during the first quarter, including the introduction of the Harpoon GPS watercraft security system and the announcement of the Young Driver Report Card. In March 2010, the Company also announced a new product, geared toward law enforcement specific GPS tracking technology, which is in late-stage development and due for release this year. The company has received favorable response from the sales channels for their products, executing new agreements with major distributors.

"We are pleased to have delivered a suite of products that can address targeted markets where demand is currently underserved. The advantage of having a highly skilled and capable team with a flexible LBS platform allows Blackline to address these markets quickly", said company CEO, Clark Swanson. "We have now secured several new channel partnerships with major distribution companies outside our traditional channels, a result which should better reflect growth of our company stimulated by the marketability of our product portfolio".

The net loss for the quarter was ($0.806) million compared to ($0.609) million for the same quarter in the previous year. This loss reflects the increase in revenue offset by increased product development and selling, general and administration costs incurred as the Company continues to develop.
