GUELPH, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 26, 2011) - Texada Software Inc. ("Texada") (TSX VENTURE:TXS), the premier provider of equipment rental and mobile asset management software, announces today its audited financial results for the year ended December 31, 2010.

For the year ended December 31, 2010, the Company generated total revenues of $4.45 Ml. and net earnings of $0.30 Ml. Adjusted EBITDA (defined as net earnings for the year adjusted for amortization, accretion on convertible debt, interest expense, foreign exchange, stock based compensation expense and lease closure settlements) was $0.69 Ml. These results compare to total revenues of $4.44 Ml., net earnings of $0.32 Ml. and Adjusted EBITDA of $0.56 Ml. for fiscal 2009.

Revenue for 2010 was consistent with that recorded in fiscal 2009. The split of license revenue as a percentage of total revenue increased marginally in 2010 compared to 2009. Gross profit in 2010 improved to $4.0 Ml. compared to $3.7 Ml. in 2009 and operating expenses increased by $0.16 Ml. or 5.0% in the year.

A reduction in amortization expense of $0.04 Ml. was offset by a foreign exchange loss of $0.02 Ml. compared to a gain in 2009 of $0.03 Ml., an increase in stock-based compensation expense of $0.03 Ml. and the non recurrence of a lease settlement gain of $0.09 Ml. which resulted in an overall increase $0.15 Ml. in non-operating expenses during the current year.

The improved gross profit performance in 2010 combined with the increase in operating expenses of $0.16 Ml. and the increase in non-operating expenses compared to 2009 resulted in Texada achieving a small decline in net earnings in the current year of $0.015 Ml.

"Our 2010 operating results, achieved during a very challenging twelve months for our key customer base of equipment rental and software expenditures in general, are a testament to our outstanding contingent of dedicated staff and service providers", commented Brian Spilak, Texada's President. He added, "We are proud of these results which build on our operating turnaround commenced in 2009, with Adjusted EBITDA improving by more than 23% in the current year".

Chief Executive Officer Willie Swisher added, "Texada's management team delivered another strong year in 2010 and we thank everyone for their efforts and our customers for their ongoing support. We look forward to expanding the Company's platform in 2011 as economic conditions improve throughout our marketplace."
