"I congratulate our team on the increase in sales we achieved this quarter. They worked hard to make this happen," said President and CEO, Greg McGillis.

We continue to maintain strong fiscal controls and an increased focus on product and market diversification."

Summary of Sales Revenue and Net Earnings

Titan Logix Corp.'s sales for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 totaled $5,045,245, an increase of $612,928 or 14% from sales of $4,432,317 in the previous year's first quarter. Titan's sales outside of Canada, primarily to the U.S., were $2,744,144 in this first quarter of fiscal 2015, an increase of 54% from sales of $1,778,954 in the first quarter of fiscal 2014. These sales have increased as the Company has had success in increasing its market penetration in the United States and has also benefited from the strengthened U.S dollar compared to the same period last year. In addition, during the period a number of the Company's U.S. based OEM customers increased their sales to Canadian trucking companies which has caused a shift in Titan's sales from Canada to the U.S.

Earnings before income tax, for the quarter ending November 30, 2014 were $1,512,608 compared to $1,125,523 in the first quarter of fiscal 2014. Net earnings and comprehensive income for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 were $1,113,928 compared to $836,358 for the first quarter of fiscal 2014. This increase is tied to increased sales and a gain on foreign exchange offset by increases in certain expense categories, as detailed below.

Business Outlook

We expect the decrease in the price of oil to have an impact on sales of TD80 systems in new tankers in fiscal 2015. We are not certain of the timing and the depth of the reduction in sales. Our mitigation plans include increased retrofit sales efforts and sales into non-crude oil markets. Titan continues to maintain strong fiscal controls and the increased focus on product and market diversification.

Titan continues to develop the complete solution for "In the field, On the road, and In the office" product offerings to provide a fully integrated supply chain management solution to help our customers manage their fluid assets. We are partnering with well-known telematics providers and working on partnerships in other product categories that further enhance the Titan solution offering. These partnerships will allow our products to work alongside other proven products to provide reliable back-office information and control solutions to our customers. Customers are seeing the value of this enhanced management of their fluid assets as we see an increase in the demand for the integration of our products with telematics solutions.

Titan has the dominant market share for the monitoring of crude oil in over-the-road tankers in North America. To more completely facilitate the monitoring of crude oil at all points along the supply chain, Titan is working on expanding its product line to include advanced technology automated stationary tank gauging. This will enable us to provide an ideal integrated total asset management gauging solution for crude oil movement from the well head to the refinery, monitored in the cloud through Titan's telematics partners. The storage tank gauging market is fractured with a variety of products, many of which are mechanical.
