SAND Technology Inc. (OTCBB:SNDTF), an international provider of data management software and best practices, today reported a loss for the three-month period ended January 31, 2009. The Company reported a net loss for the second quarter of fiscal year 2009 of $127,415 on revenues of $1,747,384 compared with a net loss of $491,343 on revenues of $1,419,521 for the second quarter of fiscal year 2008.

"Our second quarter has shown an improvement compared to our first quarter this year as well as over the second quarter of last year," notes Arthur Ritchie, President and Chief Executive Officer of SAND.
"While we see the positive impact of closing some of the orders that were delayed, we still remain challenged by customers who have adopted a more cautious attitude to spending by decreasing and/or delaying the placing of orders and conserving their cash. However, we believe that the value of SAND/DNA products as an enabling technology that increases efficiency and saves costs will remain intact over the long-term. These strengths may prove to be real opportunities in a time when budgets are being cut. Despite the macro factors affecting our business, we continue to make positive strides in attracting new business directly from customers and indirectly through our systems integrators and application vendors."
