Sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2011 ended December 31, 2010 were $2.98 million.

This compares with sales of $2.51 million during the company's first quarter of fiscal 2011, a 19% increase. Further, revenue from the US market was $1.14 million in this quarter, up substantially from the $0.88 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2011. It was the US market in the first quarter of fiscal 2011 which was the principal contributor to the sales decline in that quarter, and the second quarter of fiscal 2011 shows significant improvement in that territory. Compared to the same quarter of last year, sales revenue of $2.97 million was up slightly.

Gross margins for the quarter were 77%, 4% above the company's immediately preceding first quarter of fiscal 2011, and 3% higher than those of the quarter ended December 31, 2009. This is the result of a beneficial mix of orders weighted slightly more heavily towards software this quarter, than is historically the case for Sangoma. Expenses for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 were $1.85 million, 7% higher than those of fiscal first quarter ended September 30, 2010, and 17% higher than those of the comparable quarter last year. Net income was $0.34 million ($0.011 per share fully diluted) compared to net income of $0.05 million last quarter and $0.37 million ($0.012 per share fully diluted) for the quarter ended December 31, 2009.

On December 31, 2010 Sangoma had working capital of $10.90 million including $7.68 million in cash and equivalents, as compared to $9.57 million on December 31, 2009.

President and CEO, Bill Wignall, and CFO, David Moore will host a conference call on Thursday February 24, 2011 at 11 a.m. Eastern Standard Time to discuss the quarter's results. The dial-in number for the call is 1-800-319-4610 (International 1-604-638- 5340). Investors are requested to dial in 5 to 10 minutes before the scheduled start time and ask to join the Sangoma call.
