MONTREAL (Quebec), December 16 2008 – Alphinat Inc. (TSX-VN : NPA) announces its results for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2008.

The 2008 fiscal year was characterized by consolidation and growth. After concluding the sale of the government license for SmartGuide to the Quebec government in 2007, Alphinat consolidated its position as an eGovernment software supplier by assisting various agencies and departments in deploying government services targeted at citizens and entrepreneurs. The Company’s successful implementations with the Quebec government drew international recognition that led to commercial dialogue between Alphinat and the French government. In September 2008, Alphinat announced its first European contracts by way of partnerships with large French systems integrators.

During fiscal 2008, Alphinat recognized revenue totaling $1,342,504 compared to $341,060 for 2007 and $111,550 for 2006. This increase represents an average annual growth of over 300%. Net losses for fiscal 2008 totaled $128,377 compared to a net loss of $890,969 for fiscal 2007. For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008 alone, revenue totaled $545,317 and net income totaled $139,056.

Alphinat is pleased to announce that in December 2008 it has signed a contract with Revenu Québec for an amount of $354,500. This agreement follows the contract announced in July 2008 and will allow Revenu Québec to benefit from the support of the SmartGuide software experts at Alphinat for the implementation, evolution and use of this tool for the development of constituent-centric Internet services.

Furthermore, Alphinat announces that in December 2008 it has signed an agreement with the ministère de la Justice du Québec for an amount of $90,000 for the implementation of constituent-centric Internet services based on SmartGuide.
