    Real Time Measurements Inc. (RTM, RTY on TSX.V, the “Company”) discloses the following information: On February 12, 2010, the Alberta Securities Commission (ASC) revoked the Cease Trade Order that was imposed on the Company by the ASC on August 10 2009 for late filing of annual audited financial statements. The Company is still a listed issuer on the TSX Venture Exchange (TSX.V), however the Company’s shares will not be trading on the TSX.V until such time as the Company has met all the requirements of the TSX.V as set out in the TSX.V Corporate Finance Manual. Management is endeavoring to meet said requirements.

    On May 31 2010 the Company is due to file its annual audited financial statements for the preceding fiscal year which is the 12 month period ended January 31 2010. The statements will not be prepared on time due to financial constraints. Management therefore expects the ASC will impose a CTO on the Company on or about May 31 2010. Management will endeavor to get the annual audited statements prepared as soon as possible and apply to the ASC to have the CTO lifted as soon as possible.

    Further to the April 20 2009 Press Release issued by the Company regarding a bid won by the Company to supply C$2.3M worth of downhole electronic instrumentation to a major oil producer in the Middle East. Despite the April 20 2009 estimate that the awardness process should have been completed within 90 days of the April 20 2009 Press Release, 13 months later, as of today, the final details of the contract have not been worked out. The contract awardness process is still proceeding. However given management’s obvious inability to accurately predict when the contract will be finalized, and with the understanding that the contract is not finalized, and that there is no guarantee that it will ever be finalized, management is committed to doing whatever is required to finalize and complete the contract when the time comes. Once the awardness process is complete, the Company will require financing in order to complete the order. Presently there is no assurance that the Company will be able to get the financing on terms that are acceptable. Please also note that the actual value of the contract is US$1.9, which on April 20 2009 represented the C$2.3M announced value, however the current USD/CAD exchange rate means the contract is worth roughly C$1.9 as of today’s date.
