Softchoice Reports Record 2007 Results and 38 Percent Earnings Growth

TORONTO, Feb. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Softchoice Corporation (TSX: SO), a leading North American provider of technology solutions and services, today reported record financial results for the fourth quarter and 12 months ended December 31, 2007.

TORONTO, Feb. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ – Softchoice Corporation (TSX: SO), a leading North American provider of technology solutions and services, today reported record financial results for the fourth quarter and 12 months ended December 31, 2007.

For the year ended December 31, 2007, Softchoice recorded record net income of US$22.0 million on revenue of US$777.1 million compared to net income of US$15.9 million on revenue of US$703.2 million recorded during the year prior. Earnings per share for the year amounted to US$1.27 per share basic (or US$1.25 per share fully diluted) compared to US$0.93 per share basic (or US$0.92 per share fully diluted) recorded in 2006.

"I am pleased to report that the Softchoice team has delivered another exceptional set of financial results," said David MacDonald, President and CEO of Softchoice. "Over the past year we have focused on consolidating market share, expanding our revenue base and diversifying the offerings we deliver to our customers. As a leading Microsoft LAR in North America, we have benefited from the very strong new product pipeline that Microsoft began bringing to market in 2007. We also seeded our own growth opportunities toward the end of the year by making a series of strategic acquisitions that are allowing us to deliver more advanced infrastructure solutions to a larger number of North American mid-market, enterprise and public sector organizations. Together, these initiatives do two very important things for Softchoice: they increase the strategic value of what we do for customers and they lay the foundation for the next phase of our growth."

For the three-month period ended December 31, the Company recorded net income of US$5.2 million compared to US$6.3 million for the same period the prior year, a decrease of 17 percent as a result of costs related to the acquisitions in the quarter. Earnings per share were US$0.30 per share basic (or US$0.30 per share fully diluted), compared to the US$0.36 per share basic (or US$0.36 per share fully diluted) recorded in the fourth quarter of 2006. Revenues for the period increased by 24 percent over the same time last year to US$266.1 million. These results include the results from the following acquisitions Softchoice made late in the year: the business of NexInnovations for the period of October 12, 2007, to December 31, 2007, and Software Plus for the period of December 13 to December 31, 2007.

On a stand-alone basis, Softchoice recorded revenues of US$225.9 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2007, representing an increase of 6 percent over the same period the year prior. Hardware sales amounted to US$57.6 million, representing an increase by 23 percent over the same quarter last year. On a stand-alone basis, operating income for the quarter remained flat year over year at US$6.1 million.

NexInnovations recorded revenues of US$25.6 million in the period following the close of this acquisition, including US$22.1 million in hardware revenues and US$3.5 million in software revenues. As expected, operating costs had yet to be fully realigned, resulting in a negative contribution from the business and a reduction in earnings of $1.3 million in the period following the acquisition, including amortization costs of US$0.3 million.

Software Plus recorded US$14.7 million in revenues in the period following the close of this acquisition; 84 percent of this revenue represents sales of software. This acquisition resulted in a slight increase in earnings of US$0.3 million.

"Over the past few months we have also made tremendous strides in the implementation of our growth strategy with our acquisitions of NexInnovations, Software Plus and Optimus Solutions," added Mr. MacDonald. "These transformational transactions are highly complementary to our business, whether by giving us the opportunity to extend our software licensing expertise to new accounts or to deepen relationships with existing customers by delivering and supporting a full spectrum of infrastructure solutions. From this broader and deeper revenue base, we plan to continue to achieve above-market growth and to pursue selective acquisition opportunities that complement our business model."

On February 12, 2008, the Directors of Softchoice declares a dividend in the amount of C$0.10 per common share payable on March 31, 2008, to shareholders of record at the close of business on March 14, 2008.

Acquisition Highlights – On October 12 and October 25, 2007, Softchoice acquired the Technology Solutions and Professional Services divisions of NexInnovations for US$12.4 million, including fees and expenses of US$0.6 million. The acquisition gives the Company the necessary capabilities to provide advanced systems infrastructure solutions to Canadian enterprise and public sector organizations. – On December 11, 2007, Softchoice completed the acquisition of Software Plus, the largest corporate Microsoft reseller in the U.S. Midwest, for a purchase price of US$47.1 million, net of cash acquired of US$1.8 million and fees and expenses of US$3.8 million. The purchase has served to bolster Softchoice's position as the fifth-largest Microsoft LAR in North America and a key provider of software licensing to U.S. small, mid-market, enterprise and public sector organizations. – On January 3, 2008, Softchoice acquired Optimus Solutions for a purchase price of US$38.1 million with a deferred payment of US$9 million payable in 2008, depending on the financial performance of the company. Optimus Solutions is a comprehensive IT products and solutions provider focused on helping U.S. enterprise and mid-market organizations plan, build and maintain their information technology systems infrastructure. Financial and Operational Highlights – Softchoice's hardware business demonstrated strong growth, increasing from 25 percent of total sales in 2006 to 30 percent of total sales in 2007. During the fourth quarter, hardware sales grew by 76 percent year over year. – During the year, sales of Microsoft Enterprise Agreements (EAs) licensing increased in Canada and the U.S. by 71 percent and 36 percent, respectively. Softchoice is the fifth-largest Microsoft LAR in North America and the number one provider of EA licensing based on the number of agreements managed. – Gross profit per employee increased by 23 percent over 2006, reflecting the proficiency of Softchoice's sales and marketing personnel in providing integrated technology solutions to North American organizations. – Over the past year Softchoice completed a total of 275 TechCheck assessments, helping a wide range of small, mid-market and enterprise organizations to reduce the cost, complexity and risk of managing their IT environment. – In 2007, Softchoice became authorized as a North American Corporate Tier reseller by VMware, the world's leading provider of virtualization software, and successfully attained Diamond Partner status in Canada for Hewlett-Packard. – Softchoice was named one of Canada's Best Workplaces by Canadian Business magazine and Canada's Top Solution Provider of the Year by Computer Dealer News magazine for the second year in a row.

Nature of operations Softchoice Corporation (the "Company") was formed on May 15, 2002 pursuant to an amalgamation with Ukraine Enterprise Corporation (UEC). The Company was incorporated under the Canada Business Corporations Act. The Company is a North American business-to- business direct marketer of technology products. Softchoice's United States operations are carried on by Softchoice Corporation ("Softchoice U.S."), a corporation incorporated under the laws of the state of New York. On December 10, 2007, Softchoice incorporated a wholly owned subsidiary, Softchoice Holding Corporation ("Holdco"). Holdco is incorporated under the laws of Delaware. Softchoice transferred its ownership in Softchoice US into Holdco in exchange for the common shares of Holdco. Holdco is not an operating company. Softchoice U.S. has also issued preferred shares, which are entirely owned by the Company. 2. Significant accounting policies These consolidated financial statements have been prepared by management in accordance with Canadian generally accepted accounting principles. Principles of consolidation These consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Softchoice Corporation and its wholly owned subsidiary, Holdco, and its wholly owned subsidiary Softchoice U.S. Accounting changes On January 1, 2007, the Company adopted Section 1506 of the CICA Handbook, Accounting Changes, which prescribes the criteria for changing accounting policies, together with the accounting treatment and disclosure of changes in accounting policies, changes in accounting estimates and corrections of errors. This standard did not affect the Company's consolidated financial position or results of operations. Cash Cash consists of cash on hand and cash balances with major financial institutions. Book overdrafts are included in bank indebtedness. Accounts receivable and allowance for doubtful accounts Trade accounts receivable are recorded at the invoiced amount net of provisions for doubtful accounts. The Company maintains an allowance for doubtful accounts at an amount estimated to be sufficient to provide adequate protection against losses resulting from collecting less than full payment on its accounts receivable. Individual overdue accounts are reviewed, and allowances are recorded when determined necessary to state accounts receivable at net realizable value. Additionally, the Company assesses the overall adequacy of the allowance for doubtful accounts by considering various factors including the aging of receivables, historical bad debt experience, and the general economic environment. Management's judgment is required when the Company assesses the realization of accounts receivable, including assessing the probability of collection and the current credit worthiness of each customer. Sales returns allowance At the end of each period, the Company records an estimate for sales returns based on historical experience. If actual sales returns are greater than estimated by management, additional expense may be incurred. The historical estimate is revisited twice a year to ensure it reflects the most relevant data available. Deferred revenue Deferred revenue includes revenue that is not yet earned on sales to customers with extended payment terms beyond 180 days. Revenue is recognized as the funds are received from the customer. Revenue recognition The Company generates revenue from selling technology products and licensing the rights to software products to end-users. Sales of product in which the Company acts as a principal are presented on a gross basis. As a principal, the Company obtains and validates a customer order, purchases the product from the supplier at a negotiated price, arranges for shipment of product, collects payment from customers, ensures that product reaches customers and processes returns. The Company's product is shipped directly to customers using third party carriers. Sales of product in which the Company acts as an agent are presented on a net basis. As an agent, the Company obtains the order and refers the order to a supplier for a fee. Revenue is recorded when the product is shipped to customers, FOB shipping point, or when customers acquire the right to use or copy software under license, but in no case prior to the commencement of the term of the software license agreement or service contract, and when the price is fixed and determinable and collection is reasonably assured. The Company estimates the level of anticipated returns based on historical experience and makes appropriate reserves at the time the revenue is recognized. The Company also generates revenue from providing professional services to end-users based on a pre-determined time and materials basis contract. Time incurred on the contract is tracked and billings are processed based on the percentage-of-completion method of accounting. Costs associated with the interim billings are tracked and recorded against the associated revenue. Cost of sales Rebates and market development funds received from vendors are included in cost of sales and are recorded as earned based on the contractual arrangements with the suppliers. Marketing development funds The Company receives funds from vendors to support the marketing and sale of their products. When these funds represent the reimbursement of a specific, incremental and identifiable cost, the related costs are netted against these funds and excess profits, if any, are recorded as a reduction of cost of sales. When the funds are not related to specific, incremental and identifiable costs, the amounts received are recorded as a reduction of cost of sales. Funds are recorded at the later of the date that the vendor is invoiced, according to the terms of the agreement with the vendor, or when the marketing effort is completed. Inventories Inventory is comprised of finished goods and is valued at the lower of cost and net realizable value. Cost is determined on a first-in, first-out basis. The new Section 3031, Inventories, relates to the accounting for inventories and revises and enhances the requirements for assigning costs to inventories. The new standard applies to interim and annual financial statements relating to fiscal years beginning on or after January 1, 2008. This standard is not expected to have a significant effect on the Company consolidated financial statements. Property, plant and equipment Property, plant and equipment are recorded at cost less accumulated amortization. Amortization is provided on a straight-line basis over their estimated useful lives as follows: Office equipment three years Computer equipment three years Computer software three years Leasehold improvements over the term of the related lease Property, plant, and equipment are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. An estimate of undiscounted future cash flows produced by assets, or the appropriate grouping of assets, is compared with the carrying value to determine whether an impairment exists. If an impairment is determined to exist, the assets are written down to their fair value. Goodwill Goodwill represents consideration on acquisitions in excess of the fair value of tangible and identifiable intangible assets acquired. Goodwill is not amortized; however it is tested annually for impairment or more frequently if circumstances indicate goodwill may be impaired. The Company determines any impairment in value primarily on the ability to recover the balance from expected future operating cash flows on an undiscounted basis. Any permanent impairment in the value of goodwill is written off against income. Intangible assets Intangible assets are related to acquisitions and are recorded at their fair value at the acquisition date. These assets include customer relationships, non-compete agreements, and acquired contracts, which have finite lives. These intangible assets are amortized over the estimated economic lives of 5 to 10 years, unless indicated otherwise. Management reviews the carrying value of its intangible assets annually, or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that the asset might be impaired. If an impairment is determined to exist, the assets are written down to fair value. Income taxes The Company follows the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes. Under this method, future tax assets and liabilities are determined based on the differences between the financial reporting and income tax bases of assets and liabilities and are measured using the substantively enacted tax rates and laws. The Company provides a valuation allowance for future tax assets when it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the future tax assets will not be realized. Foreign currency transactions Assets and liabilities denominated in currencies other than the respective functional currency are translated at exchange rates in effect at the balance sheet date into the functional currency. Revenue and expense items are translated at average rates of exchange for the period. Translation gains or losses are included in the determination of earnings. The Company is considered to be a self-sustaining foreign operation whose financial results are translated using the current rate, under which all assets and liabilities are translated at the exchange rate prevailing at the balance sheet date, and revenues and expenses are translated at average rates of exchange during the period. Resulting translation gains and losses are included in the Foreign Currency Translation Adjustment in the Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income and Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income. Capital disclosures The new Section 1535, Capital Disclosures, requires that an entity disclose information that enables users of its financial statements to evaluate an entity's objectives, policies and processes for managing capital, including disclosures of any externally imposed capital requirements and the consequences of non-compliance. The new standard applies to interim and annual financial statements relating to fiscal years beginning on or after October 1, 2007, specifically January 1, 2008 for the Company. This standard will impact the Company's disclosures provided but will not affect the Company consolidated results or financial position. Use of estimates Financial statements prepared in conformity with Canadian generally accepted accounting principles require management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities, and amounts of revenue and expenses reported during the reporting period. Management must also make estimates and judgments about future results of operations, related specific elements of the business and operations in assessing recoverability of assets and recorded value of liabilities. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Earnings per share Financial statements prepared in conformity with Canadian generally accepted accounting principles require management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities, and amounts of revenue and expenses reported during the reporting period. Management must also make estimates and judgments about future results of operations, related specific elements of the business and operations in assessing recoverability of assets and recorded value of liabilities. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Pension Plan The Company has a defined contribution plan providing retirement benefits for its employees. Employees may contribute subject to certain limits based on federal tax laws. The Company contributes 25% of the employees contribution up to 1% of the employee's base compensation. The Company contributions vest 50% after 2 years but before 3 years, 75% after 3 years but before 4 years, and 100% after 4 years. Employees that joined the Company as part of the Software Plus acquisition still remain under their existing plan as of December 31, 2007. All non-contract employees were moved onto the Company's pension plan as of January 1, 2008. Financial instruments Effective January 1, 2007 the Company adopted new recommendations from the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants (CICA) Handbook Section 3855, Financial Instruments – Recognition and Measurement; Section 1530, Comprehensive Income; Section 3861, Financial Instruments – Disclosure and presentation; Section 3251, Equity and Section 3865, Hedges. The adoption of these new standards resulted in changes in the accounting for financial instruments as well as the recognition of certain transition adjustments that have been recorded in opening accumulated other comprehensive income as described below. The standards are applied retroactively with prospective presentation except for adjustments relating to the cumulative translation adjustments account for foreign self-sustaining subsidiaries which are applied and presented retroactively. The principal changes in the accounting for financial instruments due to the adoption of these accounting standards are described below. The new Sections 3862 and 3863 replace CICA Handbook Section 3861 Financial Instruments – Disclosure and Presentation, revising and enhancing its disclosure requirements, and carrying forward unchanged its presentation requirements. These new sections place increased emphasis on disclosures about the nature and extent of risks arising from financial instruments and how the entity manages those risks. The new standards apply to interim and annual financial statements relating to fiscal years beginning on or after October 1, 2007, specifically January 1, 2008 for the Company. This standard will impact the Company's disclosures provided but will not affect the Company's consolidated results or financial position. (a) Financial assets and financial liabilities Under the new standards, financial assets and financial liabilities are initially recognized at fair value and are subsequently measured based on their classification as described below. The classification depends on the purpose for which the financial instruments were acquired and their characteristics. The classification generally cannot be changed subsequent to designation at initial recognition of the instruments. Held for trading Financial assets that are purchased and held with the intention of generating profits in the near term are classified as held for trading. These instruments are accounted for at fair value with the change in fair value recognized in net earnings during the period. Cash is classified as held for trading. Held-to-maturity Securities that have a fixed maturity date and which the Company has positive intention and the ability to hold to maturity are classified as held-to-maturity and accounted for at amortized cost using the effective interest rate method. No investments are classified as held-to-maturity on December 31, 2007. Receivables On the adoption of the new recommendation, accounts receivables are carried at amortized cost. This classification is consistent with the classification under the prior accounting standard. Available-for-sale Financial assets designated to be available-for-sale or not designated as one of the above categories are classified as available-for-sale. These assets are accounted for at fair value, with changes in fair value recognized in other comprehensive income. When a decline in fair value is determined to be other-than- temporary, the cumulative loss included in accumulated other comprehensive income is removed and recognized in net earnings. Gains and losses realized on disposal of available-for-sale securities are recognized in other income in net earnings. No investments are classified as available-for-sale on December 31, 2007. Financial Liabilities Bank indebtedness, accounts payable, accrued liabilities, deferred revenue and income taxes payable have been classified as other financial liabilities on the adoption of the new recommendations. Financial liabilities are initially recognized at fair value and are subsequently measured at amortized cost. (b) Embedded derivatives Derivatives may be embedded in other financial and non-financial instruments (the "host instrument"). Prior to the adoption of the new standards, embedded derivatives were not accounted for separately from the host instrument. Under the new standard, embedded derivatives are treated as separate derivatives when their economic characteristics and risks are not clearly and closely related to those of the host instrument, the terms of the embedded derivative are the same as those of a stand-alone derivative, and the combined contract is not held for trading or designated at fair value. These embedded derivatives are measured at fair value with subsequent changes recognized in the Statement of Earnings and Retained Earnings as an element of administrative expenses. From time to time, the Company enters into certain contracts for the purchase or sale of non-financial items that are denominated in currencies other than the Canadian dollar. In cases where the foreign exchange component is not leveraged and does not contain an option feature and the contract is denominated in the functional currency of the counter-party, the embedded derivative is considered to be closely related and is not accounted for separately. If the contract is neither in Canadian currency nor the functional currency of the counter-party, the embedded foreign currency derivative is separated unless the non-functional item delivered under the contract is routinely denominated in the currency of the contract in international commerce or the currency the contract is denominated in is commonly used in the economic environment in which the transaction takes place. The change in accounting policy related to embedded derivatives did not result in any material changes to the December 31, 2006 financial statements. As of December 31, 2007, the fair market value of embedded derivatives was not material and did not have a significant impact on earnings. (c) Comprehensive income The Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants (CICA) issued section 1530 of the CICA Handbook, Comprehensive Income, effective for fiscal years beginning on or after October 1, 2006. Comprehensive income is described as the change in a company's net assets that results from transactions, events and circumstances related to sources other than the company's shareholders. The CICA also made changes to section 3250 of the CICA Handbook, Surplus, and reissued it as section 3251, Equity. The section is also effective for fiscal years beginning on or after October 1, 2006. The Company has adopted these sections effective January 1, 2007. Credit risk The Company's financial instruments that are exposed to concentrations of credit risk consist primarily of accounts receivable and other receivables. The Company performs ongoing credit evaluations of its customers' financial condition. Foreign exchange and interest rate risk The Company operates in both the U.S. and Canada, which gives rise to a risk that its earnings and cash flows may be adversely impacted by fluctuations in foreign exchange conversion rates. From time-to-time, the Company may use derivatives to manage this foreign exchange risk. The Company's policy is to use derivatives for risk management purposes only, and it does not enter into such contracts for trading purposes. The Company enters into derivatives only with high credit quality financial institutions. There is one outstanding derivative financial instrument as at December 31, 2007 relating to an interest rate swap (note 9). There were no outstanding derivative financial instruments as at December 31, 2006. This swap is classified as held for trading. Fair value of financial instruments The book values of cash, bank indebtedness, prepaids, accounts receivable, accounts payable, future income taxes, income taxes payable and accrued liabilities approximate their respective fair values due to the short-term nature of these instruments. Deferred Share Unit Plan and Long Term Incentive Plan On May 7, 2007 the shareholders approved the implementation of a Deferred Share Unit Plan (DSU) and Long Term Incentive Plan (LTIP) for directors and key employees respectively. The Company is accruing for the costs of the DSU and LTIP programs based on projected payments under the respective plans. The details of the plan are described in note 10. Share based compensation The Company has a share based compensation plan. The Company accounts for this plan, which calls for settlement by the issuance of equity instruments, using the fair value based method. Under the fair value based method, compensation cost attributed to the options to employees is measured at fair value at the grant date and amortized over the vesting period. Compensation cost attributable to awards to employees that call for settlement in cash that is measured at the intrinsic value between the grant date and measurement date results in a change in compensation cost. For options that vest at the end of a vesting period, compensation cost is recognized on a straight-line basis over the vesting period. No compensation cost is recognized for options that employees forfeit if they fail to satisfy the service requirement for vesting. 3. Acquisitions On October 12 and 26, 2007, the Company completed the acquisition of the technology solutions and products division of NexInnovations Inc., in exchange for total cash consideration of $12,428, including acquisition costs of $624.

The credit facility is with a large American financial institution and its Canadian subsidiary and provides for credit to both the Company and its US subsidiary in the combined amount of $70,000. $25,000 of this amount is provided under a term loan payable in semi-annual installments over five years with interest payable monthly. Availability under the remaining facility is subject to a formula based on eligible accounts receivable. The interest charged on the facility fluctuates from prime to prime less 0.75 percent. The facility is subject to various covenant requirements that have been met for the current period. The Company had also used $1,500 of its available credit as security for letters of credit issued to various institutions. The Company has entered into an interest rate swap to convert a total of $7,500 of the floating rate credit facility to a fixed rate of interest. Under the terms of the swap, the Company receives interest based on the CAD-BA-CDOR rate and pays a fixed rate of 5.20% on a monthly basis. The swap went into effect on July 11, 2007 and will terminate on January 11, 2009. As of December 31, 2007, the interest rate swap had a negative fair market value of $82. This loss has been recorded in the Consolidated Statement of Earnings. 10.

For the purposes of calculating the stock option expense, the fair value of each option granted for each year was estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The Company has not granted stock options during the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2007 (2006 – nil). The 2003 stock options were valued using the following assumptions: expected volatility of 75%, risk free interest rates of 5%, expected lives of 4 years; and expected dividend yields of nil percent. The weighted average grant date fair value of the options issued in 2003 is $5.57, net of cancellations. There have been no additional stock options issued since 2003. On May 7, 2007, the shareholders approved the implementation of a Deferred Share Unit Plan (DSU) and Long Term Incentive Plan (LTIP) for directors and key employees respectively, the details of each plan are as follows : Deferred Share Unit Plan The Company offers a Deferred Share Unit Plan (DSU) for members of the Board of Directors. For each calendar year, the Board of Directors shall determine the amount of compensation for non- executive directors that shall be paid in Deferred Share Units. At the beginning of each calendar quarter, the number of DSUs to be credited to the account of each eligible director will be determined by dividing one-quarter of that portion of the annual compensation that is to be paid in DSUs by the Fair Market Value of the Common Shares. The Fair Market Value is the volume weighted average trading price per common share of the Company on the Toronto Stock Exchange during the five trading days immediately preceding such quarter if the Common Shares are then traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange or the fair market value as determined by the Board. Each DSU represents the right to receive one Common Share of the Company when the holder ceases to be a non-executive director of the Company. To satisfy this obligation, the Company shall at its option either (i) issue Common Shares from treasury to the director, or (ii) direct the Plan Trustee (an independent trust company selected by the Company) to acquire Common Shares in the market at the direction of the Company for the purpose of share compensation arrangements, including the DSU Plan to deliver Common Shares to the director. The cost to the Company of the DSU's granted for the twelve month period ended December 31, 2007 was $224, respectively. Long Term Incentive Plan Under Softchoice's Long Term Incentive Plan (LTIP), executives and other senior employees are granted awards to receive Softchoice common shares as a portion of their total compensation. For each year, the participating employee shall elect the number of Common Shares he or she will agree to hold (the ""invested shares"") between a minimum number and a maximum number determined by the Human Resource and Corporate Governance Committee. At the end of a stipulated performance period (which is December 31, 2009 in the case of the initial grants), the Company will deliver a multiple of the number of invested shares that were owned by the participating employee throughout the period, where the matching multiple depends on several factors. LTIP awards will not vest until the end of the applicable performance period. The Company may fulfill its obligations to deliver Common Shares under the LTIP at its option by either (i) issuing Common Shares from treasury to the participating employee, or (ii) directing the Plan Trustee (an independent trust company selected by the Company) to acquire Common Shares in the market at the direction of the Company for the purpose of share compensation arrangements, including the LTIP to deliver Common Shares to the participating employees. As at December 31, 2007, there were no awards made from the LTIP program. The cost of the LTIP program accrued for the twelve month period ended December 31, 2007 was $941. 11. Contributed surplus For stock options granted to employees and directors after January 1, 2002, the Company records compensation expense using the fair value method. Fair values are determined using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. Compensation costs are recognized over the three year vesting period as an increase to stock-based compensation expense and contributed surplus. When options are exercised, the proceeds received by the Company, together with the fair-value amount in contributed surplus are credited to capital stock. Amount Balance of Contributed Surplus as at January 1, 2005 $ 612 Stock based compensation expense (6) Stock options exercised (note 10) (124) ————- Balance of Contributed Surplus as at December 31, 2006 $ 482 Stock based compensation expense 1,166 Stock options exercised (note 10) (305) ————- Balance of Contributed Surplus as at December 31, 2007 $ 1,343 ————- ————- 12. Commitments and contingencies During the normal course of business, there have been various claims instituted against the Company. Management is unaware of any matters that have a material adverse effect on the financial position of the Company or its results of operations. No amount has been provided in these financial statements in respect of these claims. Loss, if any, sustained upon their ultimate resolution will be accounted for prospectively in the period of settlement in the consolidated statements of earnings. The Company is obligated to make future minimum annual lease payments under operating leases for office equipment and premises as well as a commitment for the implementation of a new tax software package as follows: Amount 2008 $ 7,198 2009 5,641 2010 4,895 2011 4,307 2012 4,278 Thereafter 12,136 ————- $ 38,455 ————- ————- 13. Dividend In 2006 and 2007 the Company paid an annual dividend of CAD$0.40 per common share in instalments of CAD$0.10 each quarter. 14. Defined contribution plan The Company has a defined contribution plan providing retirement benefits for its employees. Employees may contribute subject to certain limits based on federal tax laws. The Company contributes 25% of the employees contribution up to 1% of the employee's base compensation. The Company contributions vest 50% after 2 years but before 3 years, 75% after 3 years but before 4 years, and 100% after 4 years. The total pension expense for 2007 was $120 (2006 – $89). 15. Related party transactions Included in accounts receivable is an amount due from a related party: $549 (2006 – $83) due from a major shareholder for product sales with shareholder were $834 (2006 – $450). This related party transaction is in the normal course of operations and has been recorded at the exchange amount, which is the amount of consideration established and agreed between the related parties.

Economic dependence Approximately 37% (December 31, 2006 – 43%), of the Company's sales in the period relate to products published by one software publisher. 19. Subsequent events On January 2, 2008 the Company announced that it had reached a definitive agreement to acquire Optimus Solutions for an estimated purchase price of $38,100 in cash with a deferred payment of up to $9,000 payable in 2008 depending on the financial performance of Optimus Solutions. Optimus Solutions is a comprehensive IT products and solutions company focused on helping enterprise and mid-market clients plan, build and maintain their information technology infrastructure with headquarters in Norcross Georgia, and nine offices in the United States. The acquisition has been funded by a term loan in the amount of $44,500 CAD from a major Canadian financial institution. The debt has a one year term with interest charges of prime plus 2.5% in the first quarter of 2008 and rising by 50 basis points each quarter thereafter. In order to support the working capital requirements of this acquisition the Company has increased its revolving credit facility with a major American financial institution for its U.S. subsidiary by $15,000. The total available credit under the revised facility is $85,000, including the term debt referred to in note 9. On February 12, 2008, the Directors declared a dividend in the amount of CAD$0.10 per common share payable on March 31, 2008 to shareholders of record at the close of business on March 14, 2008. 20.
