Significant revenue growth continued
Based on preliminary figures, Card Guard recorded a strong increase in revenues compared with Q1 2008 results, marking the sixth consecutive quarter of year-over-year growth. In the first quarter, the company experienced strong sequential growth at its U.S. subsidiary, LifeWatch Services, primarily driven by the continued market adoption of the company's ACT offering for wireless cardiac monitoring services. Card Guard believes that the positive trends shown in the first quarter of 2009 will continue throughout the year.
