For the six-month period ended June 30, 2001, the Corporation generated revenues of $1,682,983, an increase of 45% over the same period in 2000's revenues of $1,123,671.

Total operational expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2001 were $1,059,422 overall, a 114% increase over the $497,079 in same period 2000. This is the result of increased staff and administrative expenses to support the Corporation's expansion into new products and new markets.

Net loss for the period ended June 30, 2001 was $215,763 compared to net earnings of $38,555 for the same period 2000. The increase can be attributed to the additional resources and administrative expenses required to provide and support the extensive sales and marketing activities, as well as professional services required for the reverse takeover of Carmanah Technologies Inc. ("CTI"). The Corporation's net working capital balance increased from $659,300 as at December 31, 2000 to $2,303,969 as at June 30, 2001, an increase of $1,644,669.
