Edward Spink, TurboSonic CEO, commented, "Subsequent to our release on September 24, 2009 of our operating results for our fiscal year ended June 30, 2009, we have received numerous requests from stockholders and the investment community for our fourth quarter results and to discuss TurboSonic's strong growth within the context of the recessionary economic climate so that it is more fully understood.

Our fourth quarter results have improved considerably over those from fiscal 2008: revenue increased to $7,855,038 from $5,686,314 in fiscal 2008, net income before taxes of $750,383 was recorded, up $403,453 from $346,930 in fiscal 2008, while our backlog has improved from $5.7 million entering 2009 to $10.2 million entering our 2010 fiscal year.

Highlights of the 2009 fiscal year include two successes related to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions; the first for the supply of SonicKleen(TM) WESP technology for a European carbon sequestration project and the second for the introduction of Catalytic Gas Treatment (CGT)(TM), a new patented technology to which TurboSonic has exclusive worldwide marketing rights. CGT destroys volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as formaldehyde from industrial air emissions, eliminating dependence on natural gas combustion in thermal oxidizers, the traditional approach to VOC control. CGT also eliminates CO2 and nitrogen oxides generated by the combustion of natural gas.

The CGT technology offers an opportunity for a return on investment from the savings to the user on natural gas and we believe projects will qualify for carbon credits under proposed cap-and-trade legislation. In one example of a CGT application, we can create a 34,000 ton per year reduction in carbon dioxide emissions, which at $10 to $30/ton provides a glimpse of the importance of this new technology. According to the McIlvaine Company, a recognized independent market-consulting firm, the worldwide market for thermal oxidizers represents 40% of the total market for VOC abatement equipment, which was estimated in 2008 to be $4.25 billion annually. We believe that CGT technology can capture a significant portion of this market.

We have also penetrated new markets with contracts for control of nitrogen oxides from cement and wood panel production, as well as contracts for particulate control technologies for oil refineries.

We completed ISO 9001 certification for our Quality Management system, highlighting our commitments to product excellence and customer satisfaction and qualifying us for larger international projects.

TurboSonic's intellectual property continues to grow with a new patent granted and five new patent applications filed in fiscal 2009 for a total of 35 patents granted and applied for to date. Two new marketing agreements have been signed further expanding TurboSonic's technology base and market opportunities.

On the strength of our company's accomplishments, TurboSonic is pursuing an aggressive plan for growth. While the exact timing of legislation and its effect on our short-term business is a variable, our addition of new technologies, growth and penetration of core technologies, geographic expansion and the worldwide push for a clean environment and greener world are aligning to drive TurboSonic's long-term plans for growth."
