GUELPH, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 26, 2009) - Texada Software Inc. ("Texada") (TSX VENTURE:TXS), the premier provider of equipment rental and mobile asset management software, announces today its unaudited interim financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2009.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2009, the Company generated total revenues of $1.12 Ml. and a net income of $0.10 Ml. Adjusted EBITDA (defined as income (loss) for the period adjusted for amortization, accretion on convertible debt, interest expense, foreign exchange loss (gain), stock based compensation expense, gain on lease settlement and gain on sale of intangible asset) was $0.11 Ml. These results compare to total revenues of $1.11 Ml., a net loss of $0.21 Ml. and an Adjusted EBITDA loss of $0.18 Ml. in 2008.

Revenue for 2009 was consistent with revenue recorded in the second quarter of 2008. Operating expenses declined by more than $0.33 Ml. during the quarter primarily due to reductions in support and sales and marketing expenses. A gain on the settlement of a lease obligation on vacated office space of $0.06 Ml. in the quarter reduced overall non-operating expenses to $0.03 Ml. for the period compared to $0.31 Ml. in the second quarter in 2008.

The three month period ended June 30, 2009 marked the second consecutive quarter of profitability for Texada resulting in income for the first six months of 2009 of $0.13 Ml. compared a loss of $0.29 Ml. in 2008, with the prior year's results including a gain on the sale of an intangible asset of $0.40 Ml.

"We continue to be pleased with our operating performance", commented President & CEO Brian Spilak. "The positive start to the year which we saw in the first quarter continued into the second quarter and we are cautiously optimistic that this positive trend will continue for the balance of 2009. Our stated plan of nurturing key customer relationships continues to bear fruit and we will carry on with our endeavours to streamline our operations while at the same time readying the organization for what we anticipate will be improved macro business conditions in future quarters."
