     The increase in revenue is primarily attributable to an overall
 increase in our client's information technology ("IT") spending
 particularly with departments of the United States Government and the
 education business. Operating income increased as a result of increased
 revenue, increased gross profit primarily attributable to higher
 engineering utilization and reduced SG&A as a result of the non-recurrence
 of certain charges that were recorded during the six months ended February
 28, 2007.
 
     "We are pleased to have achieved significant increases in our
 performance over the preceding periods and to have improved our earnings
 for the third successive quarter when considered on a year-over-year
 basis," said Dinesh Desai, Chairman, CEO, and President of Emtec. "With our
 recent acquisition of Luceo, Inc. which is accretive to our earnings per
 share, I am confident that our expansion into the software services area
 will continue our success."
