IWG Announces Second Quarter Results-Fiscal 2008

BURNABY, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 8, 2008) - International Water-Guard Industries Inc. (TSX VENTURE:IWG) today announced the financial results of the quarter ended March 31, 2008.

An expected decrease in Company revenue for the first quarter of financial 2008 continued into the second quarter of the year, although there is an anticipation of improvement in the last half. The Company reported sales during the second quarter of fiscal 2008 of $856,064, down from $1,149,646 in the same quarter of the previous year. Second quarter loss was $102,760 compared to net earnings of $176,466 in the prior year's second quarter. Six month sales to March 31st were $1,710,447 compared to $2,163,330 in the prior year. The six month net loss was $183,451 compared to earnings of $311,742 a year earlier.

In both the current quarter and the six month period, the Company has accelerated its new product development efforts for fiscal 2008 to meet an emerging need for complementary products in aircraft water treatment and systems. The related expenditures have reduced the Company's net income in this period, which will continue for the balance of the fiscal year. Also, what has become common to Canadian exporters during the middle of 2007 was the sudden impact of the stronger Canadian dollar on the Company's sales and earnings until adjustments could be implemented.

The results for the quarter provided a 0.3 cents net loss per share in the current quarter (0.5 cents year to date), compared to net earnings of 0.5 cents per share in the second quarter of the prior year (0.9 cents year to date) on both a basic and fully diluted basis.
