FINANCIAL SUMMARY

The Company's continuous disclosure documents provide discussion and
analysis of "cash EBITDA", "funds from operations" and "funds from operations
per share". These financial measures do not have standard definitions
prescribed by GAAP in Canada and, therefore, may not be comparable to similar
measures disclosed by other companies. The Company has included these non-GAAP
financial measures because management, investors, analysts and others use them
as measures of the Company's financial performance. The Company's definition
of cash EBITDA is cash available for interest payments, cash taxes if
applicable, debt servicing, discretionary capital expenditures and the payment
of dividends, and is calculated as earnings before interest, taxes,
depreciation and amortization less participation survey revenue, plus non-cash
and non-recurring general and administrative expenses. The Company's
definition of funds from operations is cash flow from operations as prescribed
by Canadian GAAP but excluding the impact of changes in non-cash working
capital. Funds from operations per share is defined as funds from operations
divided by the weighted average number of shares outstanding for the period.

On July 1, 2008 the Company changed its participation survey revenue
recognition policy from the completed contract method to the percentage of
completion method. Under the percentage of completion method, participation
survey revenue is recognized proportionately with the degree of completion of
the participation survey projects.

Management considers that the new policy is preferable because it results
in a more transparent treatment of participation survey revenue and is
consistent with industry practice, making the Company's financial statements
more comparable. This change in accounting policy has been accounted for
retrospectively, and the comparative statements for 2007 have been restated.
The percentage of completion method is compliant with the current
International Financial Reporting Standards for revenue recognition.

The effect of this change in participation survey revenue recognition on
the interim financial statements for the three-month and nine-month periods
ended September 30, 2008 and 2007 is as follows:

Overview

Total seismic revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2008 was
$14.0 million, comprised of $8.1 million in data library sales and $5.9
million in participation survey revenue, compared to $11.6 million for the
third quarter of 2007, comprised of $9.1 million in data library sales and
$2.5 million (restated) in participation survey revenue. These results
represent a 20 percent increase in total seismic revenue for the three-month
period, and the second highest quarter for total seismic revenue in Pulse's
history.

Total seismic revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2008 was
$33.1 million, compared to $32.8 (restated) million for the nine months ended
September 30, 2007. Data library sales for the nine months ended September 30,
2008 were $26.8 million, an 11 percent decrease from $30.2 million for the
comparable period in 2007. Participation survey revenue for the nine months
ended September 30, 2008 was $6.3 million, compared to $2.5 million (restated)
for the same period in 2007. The slight increase in total seismic revenue for
the nine month period ended September 30, 2008 was due mainly to the increase
in participation survey revenue, partially offset by a decrease in data
library sales.

Sixty-four percent of seismic data library revenue was generated from the
2D library and 36 percent from the 3D library for the third quarter of 2008,
while 51 percent of seismic data library revenue was generated from the 2D
library and 49 percent from the 3D library for the first nine months of 2008.
Geographically, the sales breakdown of seismic data library in the third
quarter of 2008 was 53 percent from data located in Alberta, 42 percent from
British Columbia and the remaining 5 percent from Saskatchewan and the
Northwest Territories. For the nine months ended September 30, 2008 the
Alberta seismic data generated 65 percent of the seismic data library sales,
British Columbia generated 27 percent and the remaining 8 percent came from
data located in Saskatchewan, Manitoba and the Northwest Territories.

Net earnings from continuing operations for the three months ended
September 30, 2008 were $2.2 million ($0.04 per share basic and diluted)
compared to $320,000 ($0.00 per share basic and diluted) for the comparable
period in 2007. This improvement reflects higher total seismic revenue for the
period and a decrease in interest and general and administrative expenses,
including corporate transaction costs. This was partially offset by higher
seismic data library amortization expense, resulting in an overall increase of
$1.9 million in net earnings from continuing operations for the three months
ended September 30, 2008 from the comparable period in 2007.

Net earnings from continuing operations for the nine months ended
September 30, 2008 were $2.5 million ($0.05 per share basic and diluted),
compared to $1.5 million ($0.03 per share basic and diluted) for the same
period in 2007. The increase reflects higher participation survey revenue for
the period and decreased interest and general and administrative expenses,
including corporate transaction costs. This was partially offset by a decrease
in data library sales and higher seismic data library amortization expense,
resulting in an overall increase of $1.0 million in net earnings from
continuing operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2008 from the
comparable period in 2007.

Net earnings for the three months ended September 30, 2008 were $2.2
million ($0.04 per share basic and diluted) compared to a net loss of $4.2
million ($0.08 per share basic and diluted) for the same period in 2007. Net
earnings for the nine months ended September 30, 2008 were $2.2 million ($0.04
per share basic and diluted) compared to a net loss of $4.7 million ($0.09 per
share basic and diluted) for the same period in 2007. Both the three and nine
month periods ended September 30, 2007 included losses from discontinued
operations. The three month loss from discontinued operations was $4.5 million
and the nine month loss from discontinued operations was $6.2 million. When
calculating the loss per share for the three and nine months ended September
30, 2007, the basic number of shares outstanding was utilized, as using
diluted shares would have the effect of inappropriately decreasing the net
loss per share.

Funds from continuing operations for the three months ended September 30,
2008 were $11.6 million ($0.22 per share basic and $0.21 per share diluted),
compared to $8.4 million ($0.16 per share basic and diluted) for the third
quarter of 2007. Funds from continuing operations per share for the third
quarter of 2008 are based on the weighted average shares outstanding of
53,843,690 (diluted - 54,293,635), compared to 52,634,778 (diluted -
53,609,240) for the comparable period in 2007.

Funds from continuing operations for the first nine months of 2008
totaled $26.0 million ($0.48 per share basic and diluted), compared to $22.7
million ($0.46 per share basic and $0.45 per share diluted) for the first nine
months of 2007. Funds from continuing operations per share for the first nine
months of 2008 are based on the weighted average shares outstanding of
54,067,344 (diluted - 54,476,972), compared to 49,544,392 (diluted -
50,303,149) for the comparable period in 2007.

Cash EBITDA for the third quarter of 2008 was $6.1 million compared to
cash EBITDA of $7.2 million for the same period in 2007, and cash EBITDA for
the first nine months of 2008 was $20.8 million compared to cash EBITDA of
$24.1 million for the comparable period in 2007.

Pulse had working capital of $7.3 million (including cash of $8.9
million) at September 30, 2008 compared to working capital of $9.9 million
(including cash of $11.8 million) at September 30, 2007 and $12.3 million
(including cash of $6.5 million) at December 31, 2007. At each date, working
capital included $8.0 million of current portion of long-term debt.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2008 the Company repurchased
and cancelled 1,459,200 common shares under its Normal Course Issuer Bid at an
average purchase price of $2.72 per share, before brokerage fees, for a total
cost of approximately $4.0 million. No shares were repurchased during the
third quarter of 2008.

During the third quarter of 2008 the Company added 193 net square
kilometres of 3D seismic data with the completion of one participation survey
in the west central area of Alberta for a total cost of $5.1 million. This
brings the total 3D seismic data acquired for the first nine months of 2008 to
365 net square kilometres.

On September 19, 2008, Pulse paid its twenty-first consecutive quarterly
dividend. The dividend rate for the third quarter of 2008 was $0.05 per common
share.

Liquidity, Capital Resources and Capital Requirements

At September 30, 2008 the working capital position of Pulse, including
the current portion of long-term debt of $8.0 million, was $7.3 million, a
decrease of $5.0 million from $12.3 million at December 31, 2007. For the nine
months ended September 30, 2008 Pulse generated $26.0 million in funds from
continuing operations, had a positive net change of $5.2 million in non-cash
working capital items relating to continuing operations and investing,
generated $1.4 million from the exercise of stock options and had net cash
flow from discontinued operations of $3.7 million. Pulse utilized working
capital for long-term debt repayment of $6.0 million and for payment of
dividends (net of DRIP receipts) of $7.7 million. Additionally, the Company
purchased $2.0 million of seismic data, incurred a total of $13.3 million in
participation survey costs, including participation surveys in progress,
acquired $544,000 of property and equipment, incurred $302,000 in deferred
charges and purchased $4.0 million of its common shares through the Company's
Normal Course Issuer Bid. All of these items resulted in an increase in cash
from December 31, 2007 of $2.3 million to $8.9 million at September 30, 2008.

Although there is uncertainty surrounding seismic data library sales for
the remainder of 2008, Pulse's management expects that the Company's funds
from operations will be sufficient to finance future operations, service debt,
pay dividends and carry out the budgeted capital expenditures through 2008.
Since the Company's ability to pay dividends depends upon data library sales
and cash EBITDA, the Company will continue to closely monitor data library
sales and cash EBITDA in the current economic climate. The ongoing growth in
the Company's seismic data library continues to position Pulse to be a leading
provider of valuable seismic data to industry participants well into the
future. Historical data sales analysis shows that most seismic data retains
its value for many years. Utilizing the ongoing technological advancements in
data reprocessing, the Company's clients are able to enhance the quality of
older data in the library.

Data Library

Pulse acquires seismic data to grow its data library through two main
methods. The Company purchases proprietary rights to complementary seismic
data sets when the opportunity arises, and also conducts participation
surveys. During the first nine months of 2008, Pulse completed one 3D
participation survey and began a second 3D participation survey program. Pulse
also purchased 172 net square kilometres of 3D seismic data through three
transactions, the largest of which was a 117 net square kilometre survey in
southeast Saskatchewan.

The two current 3D participation surveys are located in the west-central
area of Alberta. In June 2008 Pulse commenced the first participation survey,
consisting of 193 net square kilometres of 3D data, which was completed and
delivered in September 2008 at a cost of $5.1 million. In July 2008 Pulse
commenced the second participation survey, consisting of 355 net square
kilometres of 3D data which was approximately 73% completed at September 30,
2008, with an expected delivery date in Q4 2008. In September 2008 Pulse
commenced initial work on a third participation survey, with expected delivery
to the customer in the first quarter of 2009.

OUTLOOK

Pulse entered the second half of 2008 positioned as a pure-play seismic
data library company providing 2D and 3D seismic to the oil and natural gas
industry in western Canada. The benefits of divesting its non-core assets
include enabling Pulse's management team and directors to focus their time and
effort, as well as the Company's capital, on optimizing and growing the
Company's core business. The Company's success in continuing to generate a
respectable level of seismic data library sales indicates that Pulse's
business model is working.

The worsening of the global credit crisis, severely declining valuations
on equity markets worldwide, weakening economic growth and sharp falls in
commodity prices, all occurring late in the third quarter and early in the
fourth quarter of 2008, have generated significant uncertainty for the energy
sector in Western Canada. Several major producers recently announced cutbacks
to capital spending. Given depressed trading multiples, energy producers can
be expected to encounter poor terms in accessing new equity capital, while
their credit conditions may tighten despite low interest rates. Mitigating the
recent weakness in crude oil and natural gas prices is the decline in the
Canadian dollar relative to the U.S. dollar, which improves U.S. dollar based
revenue to oil and natural gas producers in western Canada. Pulse's sales
force has observed that in some cases energy producers are delaying making
spending commitments for the coming winter and 2009 drilling season.

These numerous and in some cases contradictory uncertainties necessitate
Pulse taking a cautious position regarding its outlook for revenues over the
next several quarters. The Company's revenue levels over the past eight
quarters have shown less volatility than that of the overall energy services
sector, supporting the Company's view that Pulse occupies a somewhat
counter-cyclical niche within the energy services sector's capital spending
dynamic. By providing high-quality 2D and 3D seismic data in a readily
accessible and cost-competitive form, Pulse has attracted a share of the
industry's capital spending even during times of tightened expenditures. In
addition, Pulse is not significantly dependent on seismic sales to the oil
sands sector, the main focus of some recent capital spending reductions.

Pulse's decision to seize the opportunity provided by moderating field
costs and re-emphasize 3D seismic participation surveys has met with a
positive response from industry customers. The total projected capital cost of
the two surveys recently completed or underway is approximately $16 million.
Pulse's participation survey program is being driven by a reorganized and
expanded surveys department headed by an experienced manager hired in early
2008. The positive results to date create optimism that more new participation
surveys will follow. Concurrently, Pulse continues to seek opportunities to
acquire existing high-quality seismic datasets to expand the Company's data
library and drive future seismic data library sales. Current economic weakness
may provide opportunity to make new acquisitions at more favourable
valuations.

The Company believes that the strengths in its business model will
continue to yield benefits. Following its strong third quarter, Pulse is
on-track to end the year with a satisfactory level of seismic revenue.
Financially, Pulse is well-positioned for the remainder of 2008 and into 2009,
whether to continue investing in growth initiatives or to weather a potential
industry downturn. The Company has strong working capital and cash positions
and moderate debt, and remains committed to maintaining a strong balance
sheet. Although the Company's rate of growth will vary as energy producers
adjust their capital budgets and apportion spending priorities within budgets,
Pulse remains committed to being a growth company.

CORPORATE PROFILE

Pulse is a market leader in the acquisition, marketing and licensing of
2D and 3D seismic data to the western Canadian energy sector. Pulse owns the
second-largest licensable seismic data library in Canada, currently consisting
of approximately 257,300 net kilometres of 2D seismic and approximately 12,000
net square kilometres of 3D seismic. The library extensively covers the
Western Canada Sedimentary Basin where most of Canada's oil and natural gas
exploration and development occurs.

Pulse has publicly traded on the TSX since 2001. The Company has paid its
shareholders a quarterly dividend since 2003 and at Pulse's current share
price provides one of the highest dividend yields on the TSX.

Forward Looking Statements

This document contains information that constitutes "forward looking
information" or "forward looking statements" (collectively, "forward looking
information") within the meaning of applicable securities legislation. This
forward looking information includes, among other things, statements
regarding:

- estimated future demand for seismic data;

- estimated future seismic data sales;

- estimated future demand for participation surveys;

- estimated costs, funding, size, commencement dates and delivery dates
of participation surveys;

- planned future participation surveys;

- planned growth of the seismic data library;

- estimated future revenues, cash flow, cash EBITDA and earnings;

- estimated future oil and gas drilling activities;

- planned future dividend payments;

- planned future normal course issuer bid purchases;

- Pulse's business strategy;

- other expectations, beliefs, plans, goals, objectives, assumptions,
information and statements about possible future events, conditions,
results and performance.

Often, but not always, forward looking information uses words or phrases
such as: "expects", "does not expect" or "is expected", "anticipates" or "does
not anticipate", "plans" or "does not plan", "estimates" or "estimated",
"projects" or "projected", "forecasts" or "forecasted", "believes" or "does
not believe", "intends" or "does not intend", "likely" or "unlikely",
"possible", "probable", "scheduled", "positioned", "goal", "objective",
"hopes", "optimistic" or states that certain actions, events or results
"should", "may", "could", "would", "might" or "will" be taken, occur or be
achieved.

Undue reliance should not be placed on forward-looking information.
Forward looking information is based upon current expectations, estimates and
projections that involve a number of risks and uncertainties which could cause
actual results to vary and in some instances to differ materially from those
anticipated in the forward looking information.

The material risk factors include, but are not limited to:

- the demand for seismic data and participation surveys;

- the pricing of data library license sales;

- the level of pre-funding of participation surveys, and the ability of
the Company to make subsequent data library sales from such
participation surveys;

- the ability of the Company to complete participation surveys on time
and within budget;

- the price and demand for oil and natural gas;

- the level of oil and gas exploration and development activities;

- the ability of the Company's customers to raise capital;

- environmental, health and safety risks;

- the effect of seasonality and weather conditions on participation
surveys;

- federal and provincial government laws and regulation, including
taxation, royalty rates, environment and safety;

- competition from other seismic data library companies;

- dependence upon qualified seismic field contractors;

- dependence upon key management, operations and marketing personnel.

The foregoing list of risks is not exhaustive. Additional information on
these risks and other factors which could affect the Company's operations or
financial results are included in the Risk Factors section of the Company's
MD&A for the most recent calendar year and interim periods.

Forward looking information is based upon the assumptions, expectations,
estimates and opinions of the Company's management at the time the information
is presented. The Company does not update forward looking information should
circumstances change or management's assumptions, expectations, estimates or
opinions change, except as required by securities laws.
