Clement Forget, President and CEO of Clemex Technologies Inc. stated: "Despite a catch-up in our traditional activities at International, our sales still suffer from the uncertainty in the manufacturing sector, more specifically with capital investment in the US, traditionally the most important market for Clemex. Unfortunately, our order book does not reflect short term increase in sales activity in the manufacturing sector abroad nor in North America.

On a more positive side, we are eager to launch our first sales of the Hematology instruments before the end of this current fiscal year. These sales will undoubtedly reinforce our sales performance to hopefully end our fiscal year on a positive note as for sales and profitability.

Mr. Forget continued "Concerning the hematology instrument project; we have been very active with medical instruments exhibitions (AACC Houston, TX) and private demos of our new instruments to major customers and we are convinced that these will result in business opportunities in the short term. As for the 13485 ISO certification, mandatory to obtain Canada Health and FDA approval, we are on time with our implementation plan and should complete the process by mid-January 2014."
