"In addition to increasing demand for Ironclad products, the Company continues to successfully execute on the financial plan it developed in early-2009, as evidenced by our achievement of a second profitable quarter for the year," said Scott Jarus, Chairman and CEO of Ironclad. "Despite the lingering global economic downturn, Ironclad has been successful in expanding into new markets and increasing penetration within its existing accounts."

Mr. Jarus added, "2009 represented an inflection point for Ironclad, and its ability to build a successful and sustainable business. Business with existing customers grew in 2009, despite current economic conditions, and we acquired several significant new customers. The Company's cost structure is now in line with its revenues, and we have the ability to leverage our vastly improved financial condition to take advantage of new opportunities."
