The Company increased revenue for the fourth quarter ending September 30, 2006 to $3,345,000 as compared to $1,906,174 during the comparable quarter last year. Gross profit earned was $0.2 million versus a loss of $0.4 million for the fourth quarter in fiscal 2005. EBITDA was positive for the first quarter in the company's public history. Net loss was significantly reduced to $756,000 as compared to a loss of $1,829,000 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2005.

"We have made great strides in executing our business plan and have turned a major corner by becoming EBITDA positive" Said Sam Mizrahi, President and CEO. "The addition of the Tunnel Washer will assist us in handling the increased commercial laundry volume that is the result of our most recent sales efforts, while further driving operational efficiencies."

Mr. Mizrahi also noted that: "We are expecting to triple our commercial business revenues by opening up previously untapped markets, particularly in the health care industry, with the installation of the new tunnel washer. Installation is almost complete, and this new equipment will increase our commercial laundry processing capacity considerably while decreasing our utility and labour expenses by as much as 50% and 15% respectively. The washer has a minimum yearly production capacity of 10,000,000 pounds - a significant increase as compared to our current capacity of only 3,500,000 pounds. It will also allow us to reduce the time to clean our current volume from 20 hours to less than 10."

The Company has also signed a number of large commercial clients, including the Bond Place Hotel in Toronto, and the new Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts. As well, recent marketing efforts are aimed at obtaining larger and more profitable clients in the commercial health care industry.
