Summary of Sales Revenue and Net Earnings:
Titan Logix Corp.'s sales for fiscal 2012 totaled $17,941,757, an increase of $6,836,782 from sales of $11,104,975 in the previous year. Earnings before income tax, for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2012 was $4,271,468 compared to $1,108,264 in fiscal 2011. Net earnings and comprehensive income were $3,657,718 compared to $1,709,599 for fiscal 2011. This represents a 62% increase in sales and a 114% increase in net earnings. The fiscal 2012 results reflect the successful execution of our strategic plan, our continually improving operational strength, and the increased customer demand for our oilfield fluid transport products.
In the fourth quarter of 2012 Titan's sales were $5,131,387, an increase of $1,674,037 from the fourth quarter sales of $3,457,350 in fiscal 2011. The net earnings in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 were $878,981 compared to net income of $1,262,889 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011. The decrease in net earnings is attributable to the fourth quarter increase of $40,549 in income tax expense as compared to the $608,209 income tax recovery recorded in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011, offset by the increase in earnings before tax.
Fiscal 2012 marked the achievement of record revenues in Titan's history.

This substantial increase in U.S. sales is a reflection of the success of Titan's strategy and response to the increasing market demand.

"The markets we serve are ever-changing. We monitor the activity and act accordingly."
The Company's strategy is to develop, manufacture, market and support the right products to ensure its customers achieve a high return on investment/low true cost of ownership through advanced technology. Titan sells engineered, purpose-built products that meet market needs today while providing the facility for future expansion as customer needs change.
