TORONTO, CANADA – YANGAROO Inc. (TSX-V: YOO, OTC: YOOIF), the industry's leading secure digital media distribution company, today announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2009. Revenues for the first quarter of 2009 set a new record for the company and were 43% higher than for the same period in 2008. First quarter revenues increased 31% over the revenues for the preceding fourth quarter of 2008. EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) for the first quarter of 2009 improved by 33% over the same period in 2008. Cash and cash equivalents at March 31, 2009 were $2,248,000.

Other highlights from the first quarter of 2009 include the launch of the next generation of YANGAROO’S patented Digital Media Distribution System - DMDS 5.0, the use of the new DMDS 5.0 platform to power the 2009 JUNO Awards for The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS), and the allowance and subsequent grant of the company’s United States patent #7,529,712 titled “Content Distribution System and Method”.

“The growth in revenue shows that DMDS’ adoption across North America continues to accelerate,” said YANGAROO President & CEO John Heaven. “Not only are existing partners increasingly relying on it, but DMDS 5.0 has been embraced by the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences and demonstrated how cost-effective, environmentally friendly and less labour-intensive it is. In addition, the grant of our third patent has further recognized and protected our sector leading technology innovations.”
