Commenting on the Company's results, Edward Spink, TurboSonic CEO, said, "We recently completed a record year for fiscal 2009 with a healthy backlog and optimism for fiscal 2010. First quarter revenue is nearly 50% over the first quarter of the previous fiscal year while net income was flat, due to two large contracts with significant outsourced turnkey construction components resulting in low margins. We expect, however, that these contracts will open two new markets for our technologies, building on our strategy for diversification.

We are currently facing market uncertainties and requirements for cost containment as new opportunities are hampered by a slow economic recovery and the gap between establishment of environmental policies and their inevitable implementation as regulations. As a result, we anticipate that we will experience somewhat lower performance levels for the next several quarters. Our long-term prospects are built on product and market development, marketing agreements and geographic coverage to address regulatory progress, non-regulatory drivers, growth in energy generation and rising market projections. We have taken initiatives to develop several new technologies that offer our customers an economic payback based on non-regulatory driven purchase decisions."
