MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 12/19/12 -- IBEX Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:IBT) today reported its financial results for the quarter ended October 31, 2012.

FIRST QUARTER FISCAL 2013 FINANCIAL RESULTS

The Company recorded net earnings of $68,670 compared to $144,752 for the same period year ago. This decrease in net earnings is attributable to a lower inventory allocation which is the impact of goods manufactured for sale in subsequent quarters.
