Revenues decreased by $1,803,189 (51%) to $1,701,653 in the three months ended December 31, 2010 over the same period ending December 31, 2009. In these comparable periods, loss before income taxes increased $598,514 to $1,118,880 and after-tax loss increased $641,353 to a net loss of $939,311. Our backlog of orders at December 31, 2010 was approximately $8.4 million compared to $2.3 million at December 31, 2009.

The increased activity we reported in our first quarter report has delivered orders totaling $9.2 million in the first six months ending December 31, 2010. These orders are generally unrelated to new and anticipated US EPA regulations and new products, which are expected to influence new opportunities going forward.

Commenting on the Company's results, Edward Spink, TurboSonic CEO, said, "The low backlog of orders carried into the current fiscal year coupled with low bookings in the first quarter have resulted in disappointing results for the second quarter despite the significant increase in bookings, which will favorably impact future quarters. We have continued to work on long term strategies to enhance our technologies, establish marketing agreements for complementary products and develop international growth markets. These efforts have resulted in an increase in orders from international markets which we believe will be complemented by an increase in the demand for our products resulting from the economic recovery, introduction of new products and new regulations."
