RoaDor Industries Ltd. Announces Financial Results for Fiscal Year Ended September 30, 2005-Record Sales Growth

WOODBRIDGE, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 30, 2006) - RoaDor Industries Ltd. ("RoaDor"), (TSX VENTURE:RDR) announces financial results for the year ended September 30, 2005.

Sales for the year ended September 30, 2005 reflect significant growth: $1,322,245 versus $462,795 for the year ended September 30, 2004, the best annual sales performance to date in the company's history-- a result of increasing market acceptance and growth in customer base, across North America and specifically the United States. Management projections indicate that revenues for fiscal 2006 will continue to reflect accelerating sales growth and increased market share. Product testing results by key customers during 2004 and 2005 have been favourable, and we anticipate production orders to continue to increase during 2006. The company is in the process of further expanding and developing its sales infrastructure which is expected to facilitate further increases in sales.

Gross profit for the year ended September 30, 2005 was also significantly higher at $402,111 or 30.4% versus $88,251 or 19.1% for the year ended September 30, 2004. The company's gross profit has been adversely affected by the decline in value of the US dollar; and an increase in the cost of raw materials. A price increase of 9% was implemented during the 3rd quarter. The improvement in gross margin was also favourably impacted by a shift in product mix, and economies of scale due to increased production volumes.

The company incurred a loss from operations of $306,642 (2004 - $506,762). The reduced loss is due to the increased sales, which was partially offset by an increase in expenses, and reduced scientific research and development grants.
