First Quarter 2007 Results

Operating expenses were $3.2 million in the first quarter, including $170,000 of stock-based employee compensation charges in accordance with SFAS 123 ( R ). This compares with $3.4 million of operating expenses in the fourth quarter of 2006, including $59,000 of stock-based employee compensation charges in accordance with SFAS 123 ( R ).

"In the first quarter, revenues and net loss were within the guidance range we forecasted on our last earnings conference call, and cash exceeded our guidance. We were again able to lower our operating expenses this quarter, making this the eighth consecutive quarter of reduced operating expenses," said James T. Healy, president and CEO of LogicVision.

"We booked three new accounts in the first quarter -- SanDisk, Micron Technology and a new division of Sharp in Japan. In addition, we amended a contract with Matsushita and expect to start eight new evaluations during the second quarter. We are seeing increasing interest for our products to replace internal solutions as well as part of a bundled solution, and are also having successes in broadening the adoption of our solutions within existing customers," said Mr. Healy.

    Guidance for the Second Quarter of 2007
    -- Revenues are expected to be in the range of $2.7 million to $3.0
    -- Net loss is expected to be in the range of $1.0 million to $1.2 million
       or a net loss in the range of $0.04 to $0.05 per share.

       $5 million at the end of the second quarter.
