CORRECTION: OSI Geospatial Inc Reports 2008 Fourth Quarter and Year End Results

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 23, 2009) - The following document corrects and replaces the release sent earlier today at 4:05 PM ET. The Complete corrected version follows:

OSI Geospatial Inc (TSX:OSI) today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2008 and 12 months ending November 30, 2008, reported in US dollars and in accordance with Canadian Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). The company previously announced that it will present its results during a conference call scheduled for 5:00PM, Eastern Time, today February 23, 2009.

For the fourth quarter of 2008, OSI Geospatial Inc reported consolidated revenue of $6.9 million, a decrease of 16% from the $8.3 million reported in the fourth quarter of 2007. The consolidated revenue for the full year of 2008 was $25.5 million compared to $25.3 million in the prior year, an increase of 1%. The revenue in the fourth quarter of 2008 was negatively impacted by approximately $1,000,000 due to the significant decline in the value of the Canadian dollar against the US dollar.

For the fourth quarter of 2008, the Company reported net earnings of $241,000 before taxes and $782,000 after taxes compared with a net loss of $782,000 before taxes and a $798,000 after taxes in the fourth quarter of 2007. For the 12 months ending November 30, 2008, the company reported a net loss of $2.5 million before taxes and $1.6 million after taxes compared to a $2.8 million loss before taxes and a $2.9 million loss after taxes in the same period of 2007. The net earnings before taxes in the fourth quarter of 2008 were negatively impacted by approximately $250,000 due to the significant decline in the value of the Canadian dollar against the US dollar.

For the fourth quarter of 2008, the net income attributable to common shareholders was $656,000 or $0.01 per share, compared to a net loss of $960,000 or $0.02 per share in 2007. For the full year of 2008, the net loss attributable to common shareholders was $2.1 million or $0.05 per share compared to the net loss available to common shareholders of $3.6 million or $0.09 per share in the prior year.

Fourth Quarter Highlights

- Generated positive net earnings.

- Secured and began execution of security risk assessment contracts with the Port of Buffalo and Port of Miami.

- Announced and began the execution of a security training exercise project with U.S. Navy.

"It is clear from our fourth quarter financial results that the cost reduction initiatives that we implemented across the company in 2008 are beginning to yield results. These initiatives have significantly reduced our overhead expenses and we are well positioned to return the company to a profitable position in 2009," said Ken Kirkpatrick, president and CEO. "During the fourth quarter, we made good progress in developing our new market initiatives by securing two ports security risk assessment contracts, closing our first SBC2 system contract and signing enhancement contracts for the SAC2 systems previously delivered to the UK Navy. We strongly believe that these initiatives present significant opportunities for our company and we are optimistic that further success will be achieved in 2009."
