IWG Announces First Quarter Results-Fiscal 2008

BURNABY, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 19, 2008) - International Water-Guard Industries Inc. (TSX VENTURE:IWG) today announced the financial results of the quarter ended December 31, 2007. The Company reported sales during the first quarter of fiscal 2008 of $854,383, a decrease of 16% from the same quarter of the previous year. First quarter loss was $80,691 compared to net earnings of $135,277 in the prior year's first quarter. These results were in line with previously announced expectations, and were driven by realignment of customer supply chains and delivery timing, together with the commencement of increased engineering development expenditures. The adverse impact of the US/ Canadian dollar exchange rate also continued to be felt.

These results for the quarter provided a net loss of 0.2 cents per share in the current quarter, compared to net earnings of 0.4 cents per share in the first quarter of the prior year on both a basic and fully diluted basis.

The full version of the Company's financial statements can be viewed at and on IWG's website.
