Commenting on the Company's results, Edward Spink, TurboSonic CEO, said, "Our revenues have increased by $4,162,857, or 65%, in the six months ended December 31, 2008 over the same period ending December 31, 2007. Gross profit, for these comparable periods, increased $1,454,157, or 102% and net income increased $847,257. Our backlog of orders at December 31, 2008 is approximately $13,800,000 compared to $5,700,000 at December 31, 2007, an increase of $8,100,000 or 142%. Based on current trends we believe our full year fiscal 2009 results will show a positive improvement over fiscal 2008.

Our strategy, embracing industry and geographic diversification, is designed to add to and balance conditions in our traditional markets. We intend to aggressively pursue initiatives relative to alternative energy and environmental compliance alternatives that offer an operating payback. We believe this strategy, combined with the environmental awareness and motivation of the "greening" revolution has allowed us to achieve the recent improvement in performance over the previous fiscal year."
