UNIQUELY POSITIONED TO BENEFIT FROM A RESUMPTION OF GROWTH IN OUR INDUSTRY During the quarter market conditions continued to be challenging, particularly in the U.S. Home sector, combined with some business seasonality. Excluding the impact of Southern Europe and exchange rates, operations in Europe, fuelled by market share gains in the Manufacturing Sector and building momentum in the Bathroom domain, have performed in line with our expectations. Market conditions in the Office sector remained sluggish. For the quarter, EBITDA of $2.0 million in constant dollars was achieved in spite of a lower sales volume, while margins remained stable and operating expenses decreased.

THIRD QUARTER REVIEW Third quarter revenues decreased 8.3% to $14.8 million, compared with $16.1 million a year ago. In constant dollars, revenues declined modestly in the Home sector and more significantly in the Office sector while the Manufacturing sector was up. For the quarter, unfavourable currency exchange rates negatively impacted revenues by 3.8%. Revenues for the nine-month period increased to $48.6 million or 2.6%. For the quarter, Home sector revenues reached $8.4 million accounting for 56.7% of total revenues, down 6.7% taking into account currency exchange rates and 3.6% in constant dollars over the previous year. After being the engine of growth in recent quarters, the Home sector slowed down in the U.S. and southern Europe partially offset by growth in the rest of Europe and International markets. For the quarter, Manufacturing sector revenues which account for 27.4% of total revenue, declined by 5.3% to $4.0 million. In constant dollars, revenues were up 2.5% reflecting relatively stable market conditions in North America and Europe since the beginning of the current fiscal year. For the quarter, as expected, the Office sector remained weak reflecting an oversupply of office space with revenues reaching $2.4 million, down 17.9% over the previous year with most of the impact on licenses and services. EBITDA declined to $1.4 million (9.5% of revenues) from $2.0 million (12.7% of revenues) a year ago. In constant dollars, EBITDA for the quarter would have reached $2.0 million (13.5% of revenues). The remainder of the decline in EBITDA is largely attributable to lower revenues. The Company generated net earnings of $840,000 for the third quarter, or $0.04 per share, compared with net earnings of $1.0 million or $0.06 per share, a year ago. Earnings were positively impacted by exchange gains of $838,000 ($376,000 in 2009).
A WORD FROM THE CEO In recent months, the economic recovery in the U.S. proved to be much more fragile than many expected and market conditions in the Home Sector during the third quarter haven’t improved and remained challenging in the Office sector. The Manufacturing sector was one of the bright spots during the quarter, particularly in Europe, and we currently have a healthy pipeline of business opportunities but customer purchasing decisions are often pushed back mostly in North America. In the context of very prudent and selective investments, many customers are deploying efforts to diversify and reorganize their sales and manufacturing operations, and are evaluating various solutions to further computerize their operations.
