In commenting on the quarter`s results, Harinder Dhillon, Warp 9`s CEO, expressed satisfaction over the progress made in the last year in turning around the company`s financial performance and positioning the company for future growth and continued profitability driven not only by the sale of it core products but also the potential development and sale of new high margin products which will broaden the company`s appeal in its core markets. Highlights of the quarterly results include:

• 34% reduction in total liabilities from $2,370,477 to $1,545,682 year-over-year
The quarter ending December 31, 2007 marked the fifth consecutive quarter of positive net income, evidence that the company`s restructuring efforts are paying off, with the company achieving stabilized positive cash flow and profitability.
While the company still faces challenges in its turnaround, notably the reduction of overall debt, Mr. Dhillon believes that the company`s efforts will continue to show progress. Mr. Dhillon concluded by commenting on the goals that lie ahead: "We will continue to look for ways to increase shareholder value, continue to execute operationally by selling our core products, and look to invest in research and development and other areas needed to accelerate new products to market."
