"Since the establishment of our Company in 2003, we have dedicated our efforts to providing corporations and institutions with the best security management services and solutions that the industry has to offer," commented Stephane Solis, President & CEO of C-Chip. "Today, our corporate objective is to capitalize on the tremendous potential for growth that currently exists in the enterprise risk management industry while remaining focused on our corporate mission set out in 2003. This industry is very fragmented, so the opportunities that exist for consolidation are considerable. We are convinced that prudent and well-timed acquisitions will help us to significantly increase our revenues, accelerate the growth of the Company, and maximize shareholder value. In that regard, our third quarter results are particularly interesting as they only include the impact of our recent acquisitions for the month of March."

Our Company's acquisition philosophy is straightforward: we seek only those organizations that (1) provide complementary risk management services or solutions, (2) have generated positive earnings, (3) demonstrate potential for ongoing growth, (4) possess dynamic and proven management teams, and (5) have a strong client base.

Our goal is to quickly attain a leading position within the security service industry, both from internal growth and through acquisitions. We have already identified different potential acquisitions in this market segment and we are currently in discussions with a number of interesting candidates to conclude a transaction. Any announcements to that effect will be made public when, in our opinion, a transaction has been secured. Our intent is to offer both traditional security services as well as hi-tech security solutions. We believe that the security service industry can provide our Company predictable growing revenue, positive cash flows and, above all, a well established clientele base which will be leveraged for sales and marketing initiatives of state-of-the-art security products and solutions.

Over the past months, our Company has made a series of key acquisitions. In the security services sector, we have greatly enhanced our operations with the acquisition of CLI. Recognized as a leader in the field of investigative services in Canada, CLI offers us a profitable and growing revenue base as well as a strong and dynamic management team capable to lead our foray and expansion in the world of corporate investigative services.

In the risk management solutions sector, to complement our solutions enabling the remote monitoring of certain equipment which are core to our operations, we completed the acquisition of Avensys. As leader in risk management monitoring solutions for commercial and industrial buildings, infrastructures and various environments, Avensys combines skills, staff and the knowledge to integrate multiple monitoring technologies to deliver real-time, automated, cost-efficient data to business users requesting increased market intelligence for the monitoring of different environments.

"Our ultimate goal is to be a leading provider of security services and risk management solutions used by corporations and institutions worldwide," Solis stated. "To achieve this goal, we must be able to offer services and solutions that encompass all aspects of the security industry, from the collection and transmission of information and the treatment and analysis of the data collected, to the protection of assets, persons and environments. Going forward, we intend to continue to pursue our selective acquisition strategy. We believe that our business model will enable us to successfully compete with the industry leaders in our sector."
