Intrinsyc Reports Transition Period Financial Results

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 20, 2008) - Intrinsyc Software International, Inc. (TSX:ICS), a global wireless software solutions provider, today announced its financial results for the four-month transition period ended December 31, 2007, reported in Canadian dollars and in accordance with Canadian Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). As previously reported, Intrinsyc has changed its fiscal year-end from August 31 to December 31. Accordingly, the Company is required to report financial results for the four-month transition period ended December 31, 2007. The comparative periods are the three months ended August 31, 2007 and November 30, 2006.

Total revenue for the four-month transition period was $5.2 million compared to $4.5 million in the three months ended August 31, 2007 and $5.0 million in the three months ended November 30, 2006. Gross margin for the transition period was 36 percent compared to 49 percent in the three months ended August 31, 2007 and 46 percent in the three months ended November 30, 2006. The slower rate of revenue growth and commensurate gross margin decline compared to the prior quarter was due primarily to the weakening of the U.S. dollar versus the Canadian dollar as well as a delay in signing an engineering services agreement. The impact of the weakening U.S. dollar in the period had a negative impact on revenue and gross margin of approximately $425,000 from what the revenue and gross margin would have been had the exchange rates remained consistent with the three month period ended August 31, 2007. The gross margin decline caused by the depreciation of the U.S. dollar equated to an approximate 5 percent decline compared to what the gross margin would have been had the exchange rates remained consistent with the quarter ended August 31, 2007.

"During the transition period, services revenues were relatively consistent with the prior period when factoring in currency impact and the effect of a services engagement with a major OEM which was underway but due to a delay in contract signing limited our ability to recognize the revenue. Our priority remained the ramp of our Soleus™ business and our progress included securing two additional design wins and signing our first silicon vendor distribution agreement. We also launched support services with three Soleus customers which, while billed at lower rates than our non-Soleus engineering rates, helped our customers accelerate their product development," commented Glenda Dorchak, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Intrinsyc Software. "In early 2008, we continued to build upon our momentum by securing a win for Soleus with Samsung Semiconductor System LSI Division. We believe this relationship has the potential to expand over time and accelerate the deployment of Soleus internationally. Additionally, we announced the launch of the first consumer product based on our Soleus software platform, which was developed by Micro-Star International Co., Ltd., and were able to demonstrate that product, along with several other customer prototypes, at our booth at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona."

Ms. Dorchak continued, "While we expect growth in our services revenues in the coming quarter, as compared to the transition period on a time comparable basis, the slower growth of that business was the reason we made the decision to invest in Soleus. During calendar 2007, we aligned our operations in support of our wireless software solutions business by closing our United Kingdom engineering operation which was completed by December, ramping our Asia Pacific operations by opening an office in Taipei, and deploying a sales and business development operation that over the course of the year closed five Soleus wins as well as a strategic development alliance with a leading Japanese OEM to develop new user interface technologies. Our confidence in Soleus remains unchanged, and we look forward to the release of a number of Soleus-based products and the commencement of royalty revenues in the second quarter of 2008."

The EBITDA loss for the transition period was $6.9 million, compared to $3.9 million in the three months ended August 31, 2007 and $2.9 million in the three months ended November 30, 2006. The EBITDA loss in the transition period includes a restructuring charge of approximately $650,000 related to the previously announced closure of the Company's United Kingdom engineering services operation which was completed during the transition period. EBITDA loss for the transition period also includes Soleus-related research and development expenditures of $3.3 million compared to $2.7 million in the three months ended August 31, 2007 and $2.9 million in the three months ended November 30, 2006. Expenditures for sales and marketing were $2.4 million in the transition period compared to $1.8 million in the three months ended August 31, 2007 and $1.3 million in the three months ended November 30, 2006. The calculation of EBITDA excludes stock-based compensation expense. See further discussion on EBITDA under the heading "Supplemental Information" later in this press release.

Cash on hand at the end of the transition period was $12.0 million, compared to $19.6 million as of August 31, 2007. Subsequent to December 31, 2007, the Company closed a bought deal offering of 28,600,000 new common shares at an offering price of $1.05 per share, resulting in gross proceeds of approximately $30.0 million.

Accounting Changes

As of the first quarter of 2008, Intrinsyc intends to report its financial results in U.S. currency, which is more reflective of its status as a global company and is the currency in which Intrinsyc receives the majority of its revenue. Intrinsyc will continue to report in accordance with Canadian GAAP.

Supplemental Information

In addition to results disclosed in accordance with Canadian GAAP, Intrinsyc discloses a non-GAAP measure of EBITDA as a method to evaluate the Company's operating performance. This non-GAAP measure should not be considered a substitute for measurements required by accounting principles generally accepted in Canada such as loss and loss per share. Management believes that this non-GAAP metric provides additional information allowing comparability regarding the Company's ongoing operating performance and the items excluded are considered to be non-operational and/or non-recurring. EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization. This non-GAAP measure is not necessarily comparable to non-GAAP information provided by other issuers. A reconciliation of the Company's EBITDA loss to the loss under Canadian GAAP is provided in the table attached.
