Our Global Services Division's revenues were $8.83 million for the three months ended February 28, 2009. Global Services Division consists of revenues from our recently acquired subsidiaries Luceo, eBAS, Aveeva and KOAN-IT. Our Global Services Division's operating income for the three months ended February 28, 2009 was $242,552. Systems Division's total revenues decreased $10.93 million, or 24.8%, to $33.13 million for the three months ended February 28, 2009, compared to $44.07 million for the three months ended February 28, 2008. Operating loss for our Systems Division for the three months ended February 28, 2009 increased by 71.5%, or $247,943, to $594,482, compared to $346,539 for the three months ended February 28, 2008. The decreases in revenues and operating income experienced in the Systems Division are primarily attributed to the current economic downturn and the deferral of some larger computer roll-out projects to future quarters.

"In spite of the challenges in the present economic environment, we continue to have successes in a number of areas," said Dinesh Desai, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Emtec. "Our increased utilization of engineering associates in our Systems Division resulted in an increase in gross profit margin to 13.5% for the quarter compared to 11.3% for the comparable quarter a year ago. Additionally the positive contribution to earnings provided by Emtec Global Services continues to give us confidence that our acquisition strategy is on target."
