IT Staffing Company Still Flying High! Eagle's Q2 Results Indicate a Hot Economy Amid New Challenges With IT Skill Shortages

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - April 3, 2006) - Eagle Professional Resources Inc. (Eagle) is pleased to announce second quarter financial results for the period ended February 28, 2006. Revenues for the quarter were $24 million, up 15% from the same quarter last year. Six months into the fiscal year, year-to-date revenues hit the $49 million mark representing a 20% increase over the same period last year. With two remaining quarters before Eagle's tenth anniversary, the company posted its 38th consecutive profitable quarter.

There was some exciting news for Eagle this quarter. Eagle was officially awarded Platinum Club status as of Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies, a designation reserved for companies which have received the 50 Best Award for more than six consecutive years. This was also the seventh consecutive year that the company has been listed among Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies. Eagle continued the tradition of fundraising efforts for the Children's Aid Foundation over the holidays with silent auctions and toy drives across all of Eagle's offices. Also during this quarter, Eagle released its official blog, which can be found at http://eagleceonews.blogspot.com.

"The pendulum has truly swung in the IT staffing space, and the issue today is finding great candidates who are available, as opposed to finding job opportunities," said Kevin Dee, Eagle's CEO. "We are pleased with our results year-to-date, and are bullish that we will be celebrating our tenth anniversary by breaking the $100 million revenue mark this year."
