Serebra Reports Financial Results for the Year Ended March 31, 2005; Posts Two Sequential Profitable Quarters

VANCOUVER, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 25, 2005 -- Serebra Learning Corporation (TSX-V: SBR), a leading provider of e-learning solutions, today reported financial results for the year ended March 31, 2005.

Revenue for the year ended March 31, 2005 was $1,978,392 compared to $2,094,015 a year earlier. This decrease of 5% was primarily due to the changing revenue mix of the Company, as international customers became an increased part of Serebra's market base.

The loss for the year ended March 31, 2005 was $330,486 compared to $670,387 for the year ended March 31, 2004, and the respective losses per share were $0.01 and $0.02. Quarterly profits for the third and fourth quarters of the year were $66,813 and $95,407 respectively, which resulted from the Company realizing its first significant revenue from international sales.

Serebra's focus on operating efficiency during the past year has resulted in the following highlights:

--  Profitability in each of the third and fourth quarters
--  An improvement in the current ratio from 0.94 to 1.15
--  Reduced administrative salaries and wages by $127,956
--  Reduced office and other expenses by $79,054
    
Richard Walton, Serebra's chief financial officer, stated, "We are pleased that we ended the year with a strengthened balance sheet and positive working capital. March 31 marks the second consecutive quarter that Serebra has generated positive cash flow from operations. Delivering growth and profits in those quarters while we continue to put into place the key relationships and internal changes necessary to build the business is a great way to end the year."
