ENGINEERING.com Incorporated Announces First Quarter 2009 Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 4, 2009) - ENGINEERING.com Incorporated (TSX VENTURE:EGN), developer of the ENGINEERING.com online resource and business for engineers today announced its financial results for the first quarter of 2009.

ENGINEERING.com revenue was $250,926 for the three months ended March 31, 2009, compared to revenue of $387,754 for the first quarter of 2008. The net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2009, totaled ($194,708) and ($0.01) per Common Share compared with a net loss of ($105,358) and ($0.00) for the same period a year ago. The decrease in revenue is attributed primarily to the termination of an outsourcing agreement with a former related party. The decline in revenue was mitigated by an increase in the Company's Internet advertising revenue, which rose by 82% as compared to the same period a year ago.

Operating losses measured as earnings before interest, taxes, amortization and stock-based compensation, was ($133,975) or $0.00 per Common Share for the first quarter of 2009 compared with an operating loss of ($40,174) or ($0.00) per Common Share for the three months ended March 31, 2008. The operating expenses in the latest period were $302,423, down from $305,575 in the first quarter a year earlier. The reduction in operating expense resulted from lower salaries and administrative expenses.

"During the first quarter of 2009 we saw growth at our primary web site of more than 2.5 times last year's first quarter traffic," said John Hayes, President of ENGINEERING.com. "We plan to introduce more online services in 2009 to build site traffic and related advertising revenue."

As at March 31, 2009, the Company had a cash balance of $440,473 compared to a cash balance of $274,800 as at March 31, 2008.
