Quorum Releases Fiscal Year 2007 Results And and Announces Financing

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - April 18, 2008) - Quorum Information Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:QIS) ("Quorum" or the "Corporation") today released Fiscal Year (FY) 2007 results. Quorum provides services to General Motors (GM), Chrysler and Hyundai dealerships in North America. The Corporation is an Integrated Dealership Management System (IDMS) strategic partner with GM and a strategic partner with Microsoft. Quorum has a large opportunity with a market of approximately 12,000 dealerships and to capitalize on this market Quorum has invested significant funds. Historically the Corporation has placed significant emphasis on growing its customer base, however in FY2007, Quorum placed a much greater emphasis on cost management and on providing value added, recurring services to existing customers. Some of the Corporation's key results were:

- Increased sales by 10% from $7.4 million in FY2006 to $8.2 million in FY2007;

- Reduced operating loss before interest, amortization and taxes by 65% from negative $4.3 million in FY2006 to negative $1.5 million in FY2007;

- In fourth quarter of FY2007 the Corporation recorded recurring support revenue of $1.2 million compared to $0.8 million for the fourth quarter of FY2006;

- The Corporation's consolidated statement of cash flow shows cash consumption of less than $110,000 for the fourth quarter of FY2007.

In 2008, we plan to maintain our focus on efficiency and effectiveness to generate positive cash flow. However, we also see 2008 as a growth year for new sales as our sales department becomes more focused on specific US regions. Early in 2008, one of the Corporation's key competitors exited the GM IDMS program and this has significantly enhanced Quorum's sales opportunities.

2007 Financial Highlights

- 10% increase in gross revenues from FY2006.

- 15% increase in customer base from 175 to 201 installations.

- Net loss for FY2007 decreased to $1.952 million from $3.666 million in FY2006.

Quorum is also pleased to announce today that it has closed a non-brokered private placement of 1,500 units ("Units") at a price of $1,000 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $1,500,000 (the "Offering"). Each Unit is comprised of one 12% convertible secured debenture (a "Debenture") of the Corporation having a principal amount of $1,000 and 750 common share purchase warrants (the "Warrants") of the Corporation, each whole Warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one (1) common share (a "Common Share") in the capital of the Corporation at an exercise price of $0.55 per share until that date that is two (2) years from the earlier of the maturity date of the Debentures, being three (3) years from the date of closing, and the conversion date of the Debentures. The Debentures, Warrants and Common Shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrants are subject to a hold period of four (4) months from closing. The Corporation's obligations under the Debentures are secured by a first priority security interest in and to, and a first floating charge against, all of the Corporation's present and after-acquired property.

The net proceeds of the financing will be used to capitalize on the sales opportunity created by a key competitor exiting the GM IDMS program and for general corporate purposes, including software development, marketing and implementation and working capital.
