QIS Capital: While it has been extremely frustrating to watch NTG Clarity’s share price diminish over the past few months, the company’s fundamentals are in complete contradiction as NTG continues to show growth and strong earnings. Value and growth typically win in the end and unfortunately do not always correlate with share volatility and/or buying or selling trends. Investors are reminded that NTG Clarity has achieved earnings of $0.06 per share in the trailing 12 months and has positive working capital of $4.7 million or $0.13 per share and no long-term debt.

The company is pleased to announce the appointment of William (Bill) Woods as Virtuone’s new Chief Financial Officer. Bill has over 15 year experience in CFO roles with various TSX and TSXV companies, in both the United States and Canada. We would like to welcome Bill to the team said Jason Allen, Chief Executive Officer of Virtutone. We would also like to thank Sergio Valacco, for stepping in while we searched for our long-term CFO that will help take the company to the next level.
