CAPE Systems Group, Inc., (Pink Sheets: CYSG) a leading provider of software technology for packaging design, pallet optimization, RFID Asset Tracking, inventory and warehouse management, supply chain execution and order fulfillment, today announced preliminary unaudited financial results for the fiscal years ending September 30, 2007 and 2008, and the three months and nine months ended June 30, 2009.
Cape Systems Group, Inc. reported revenues of $0.5 million and $1.6 million for the three and nine month periods ended June 30, 2009, respectively. The Company also reported a $15.3 million non-cash profit (unaudited) for its third quarter ending June 30, 2009 based on anticipated settlements within the next 60 days of $8 million in liabilities related to the closing of its European operations back in 2003 and $8.4 million in liabilities related to the closing of three domestic operations in 2004. Existing operations during the same quarter had a $1.1 million loss after a $0.7 million beneficial conversion charge for the conversion of accrued interest into notes to its bondholders. The same period for the prior year had a $0.8 million loss after a $0.5 million beneficial conversion charge also for the conversion of accrued interest into notes to its bondholders. Excluding the beneficial conversion charges each year, the net operating loss for the third quarter was $0.4 million vs. $0.3 million in 2008 caused by a $0.3 million decrease in gross profit that was offset by $0.2 million in reduced S, G & A expenses based on a cost savings strategy initiated in FY2009.
Based on the third quarter's $16.4 million gain in settlement the profit for the nine months ending June 30, 2009 was $14.5 million after absorbing an operating loss of $1.9 million that included $1.2 million in beneficial conversion charges. This compares to a $1.4 million loss for the nine months ending June 30, 2008 that included $0.5 million in beneficial conversion charges. Excluding the beneficial conversion charges each year 2009's net operating loss for the nine months ending June 30 was $0.7 million vs. a $0.9 million loss in 2008. This $0.2 million improvement is the result of $0.6 million in reduced S, G & A expenses offset by a $.4 million decrease in gross profit.
For the fiscal year ended September 30, 2008, the Company reported preliminary unaudited revenues of $3.5 million. The unaudited net loss for the last fiscal year ending September 30, 2008 was $1.7 million that included $0.7 million in beneficial conversion charges vs. the prior year's unaudited net loss that ended September 30, 2007 of $3.0 million (including $1.3 million in beneficial conversion charges). Excluding the beneficial conversion charges each year 2008's net operating loss for the twelve months ending September 30, 2008 was $1.0 million vs. a $1.7 million loss in 2007. This $0.7 million improvement is the result of $1.0 million in reduced S, G & A expenses (mainly intangible amortization that finished in 2007) plus a $0.3 million increase in gross profit, which was offset by a $0.6 million decrease in gains on settlement that were realized in 2007.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 23, 2009
Dear Fellow Cyberlux Shareholder:
I’m writing you a little more than 15 months after I was named Chief Executive Officer
of Cyberlux Corporation. Let me first say thank you for your continued support and
patience as we continue to build Cyberlux into the company we all believe it can be.
Without question, this has been the most challenging, most difficult year I’ve experienced
in my 20 year business career. The financial market collapse of the past year has caused
all investors, no matter what the quality of the security or the investment risk involved, to
re-evaluate their investment strategies and their allocation of capital. Cyberlux
Corporation is thankful to continue to be an investment selection for you.
From the macro-economic factors such as the performance of the capital markets to the
micro-economic reality of the restricted availability of small business credit, Cyberlux,
like many small companies, has had to focus in the last year on its core business
opportunities and the long-term growth and prosperity of the Company, sometimes at the
expense of the Company’s short-term objectives.
In this business environment, Cyberlux Management has focused the company on our
patented LED technology, our proprietary knowledge and our product development and
manufacturing capability. In the existing Department of Defense (DoD) and Homeland
Security/First Responder channels, Management has significantly changed our model
from competing as the prime contractor for DoD contracts. In January, we transformed
our Go-to-Market strategy from competing as a prime contractor to being the supplier
who supports existing prime contractors and existing contracts. In addition, Management
has also significantly changed our retail product strategy to become the product innovator
and supplier to large existing retail marketing companies that have the scale and
capability to bring a product to market world-wide.
These Go-to-Market strategy changes are significant and have far-reaching implications
for how Cyberlux Corporation creates value in the marketplace, how the business scales
and grows, how brand equity is created and how the value in the underlying equity of the
company grows. In the past, Cyberlux Corporation was competing on a very large, very
sophisticated playing field against companies that were either better positioned or better
capitalized to secure contracts and large purchase commitments.
In fact, Cyberlux found itself in this very position with the United States Air Force
(USAF) contract. Despite having developed the best products directly with the USAF
customer, the contract was awarded to another company who underbid us and, to our
knowledge, did not have a real product in market at the time of the award. This was a
4625 Creekstone Dr, Suite 130 | Research Triangle Park | Durham, NC 27703
significant setback which Management appealed to the USAF, then to the Government
Accountability Office (GAO) and the situation is still unresolved and Cyberlux may
ultimately seek legal damages as events present an opportunity to do so. Nonetheless, the
USAF contract battle was a clear indication that a Go-to-Market strategy shift was not
only necessary but fundamentally required, where Cyberlux would serve those companies
with existing contracts as an OEM supplier and sub-contractor rather than compete in an
arena where we cannot win.
Cyberlux Corporation has continued to make hard-fought progress in the marketplace,
which has required some drastic measures appropriate for the times and the
circumstances, but, nonetheless progress has been made towards the Company’s
sustainability and future growth. On the cost control side, Management has reduced all
non-essential personnel, cut all available operating costs and asked the senior
management team, beginning in 3Q 2008, to defer compensation until the Company is in
a good operating condition. This has resulted in a reduction of true operating expense of
over 75% this year. Management is continuing the very difficult task for aligning expense
to revenue, and the Company should be well positioned to take advantage of our new cost
structure as we make revenue gains going forward.
Remarkably, the Company has introduced five new, very exciting product families in
order to expand our military and commercial product offerings, despite the cost reduction
initiatives. In the first six months of 2009, Cyberlux launched the Portable Shelter
Lighting products for tents and portable structures, the Outdoor Overhead and Outdoor
Area Lighting products for municipal and military street lighting opportunities, the
ArcLight LED products to address the traditional fluorescent lighting replacement
opportunities, the BrightEye Solar-powered Trailer-mounted Lighting System for the
DoD ‘green’ initiatives, and the WhiteEye product as a white light version of the
BrightEye for lower cost tactical lighting needs.
With the Company’s change in strategy, these new products and the existing products,
are being offered to prime contractors and companies with existing contracts that contain
lighting requirements. The OEM LED lighting market is approximately $2 billion per
year, and our products represent a market opportunity of approximately $400M. If we
capture a realistic market share of 1% to 3%, we would experience a rational level of
growth. Management is beginning to see results that will be forthcoming over the next
two quarters of performance.
Management believes these changes in Cyberlux strategy will accelerate the growth of
the Company, driving Cyberlux into a sustainable, fully operating company with
important customers who have ongoing needs for our products. This process is
challenging, requiring significant effort and creative problem solving from every
Cyberlux employee. As Cyberlux begins to grow again, the Company is committed to
excellence with a vigilant focus on quality and execution, where every commitment we
make is also a commitment we make to excellence. There is no shortcut; there is only
consistent, day-in and day-out action, where excellence is achieved through the constant
4625 Creekstone Dr, Suite 130 | Research Triangle Park | Durham, NC 27703
‘whatever it takes’ effort the Cyberlux employees make across our engineering, sales,
marketing, manufacturing, accounting, legal and management functions.
Given the trials and challenges Cyberlux has faced during the past year, I am reminded of
one of my favorite passages from a speech entitled ‘The Man in the Arena’ by Theodore
Roosevelt, a passage I’ve shared with Cyberlux employees first over a year ago.
President Roosevelt’s words are an inspiring reminder of the individual responsibilities
each Cyberlux employee has in the collective effort to build a successful company. I
share this passage with you, our faithful shareholders, because I believe it represents the
character of Cyberlux Corporation and how we are tenaciously resolved to drive the
Company to success. President Roosevelt said:
“It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man
stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs
to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat
and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again, who
knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy
cause, who at best knows achievement and who at the worst if he fails at least fails
while daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls
who know neither victory nor defeat”.
Cyberlux Management and employees have the great responsibility for building the
business into a sustainable and profitable enterprise, both an arduous and noble task.
Each individual bears the responsibility for creating the future of Cyberlux, for striving
for excellence, for doing the right thing, not just the easy thing. Within the ‘Cyberlux
Arena’, Management is seeing the results of our actions and our change in strategy. We
are committed to the building of a great company, have a deep belief in our capabilities to
serve a wide range of customers and our ability to meet production and engineering
Your Management sincerely thanks you for your past and continuing support.
