2008 "Q1-2008" Compared to Quarter Ended

March 31, 2007 "Q1-2007"

Revenue increased to approximately $2,773,000 in Q1-2008 from approximately $1,427,000 in Q1-2007. Recurring revenue, which includes SPY and TMR consumables, rentals and parts increased from approximately $693,000 in Q1-2007 to $1,496,000 in Q1-2008. The primary reason for the increase is that TMR consumable revenue was recognized for a full quarter in 2008. Capital sale revenue increased from approximately $734,000 in Q1-2007 to $919,000 in Q1-2008, as an increase in SPY capital of $540,000 was partly offset by a decrease in TMR capital of $363,000. Service revenue, which increased from nil in Q1-2007 to approximately $358,000 in Q1-2008 relates partly to the TMR business which was acquired in the last few days of Q1-2007, and to PINPOINT, which was acquired after Q1-2007.

Recurring revenue and service revenue increased from Q4-2007 to Q1-2008 whereas capital sale revenue decreased, as an increase in SPY capital sale revenue was more than offset by decreases in TMR and PINPOINT capital revenue.

Gross profit increased to approximately $1,305,000 in Q1-2008 from approximately $679,000 in Q1-2007 as a result of the increase in revenue described above. Gross profit as a percent of sales was substantially unchanged.

Sales and marketing expenses increased by approximately $567,000 to approximately $2,784,000 in Q1-2008 from approximately $2,217,000 in Q1-2007 due to expansion of a direct sales team through 2007 and into 2008. $242,000 of the increase occurred from Q4-2007 to Q1-2008.

Research and development expenses increased by approximately $317,000 to approximately $1,612,000 in Q1-2008 from approximately $1,295,000 in Q1-2007. The increase relates primarily to the establishment of a research and development center in Vancouver B.C. staffed by former employees of Xillix. Research and development expenses in Q1-2008 increased by $79,000 from Q4-2007. The increase related primarily to patent costs.

General and administration expenses increased by approximately $581,000 to approximately $1,459,000 in Q1-2008 from $878,000 in Q1-2007. Increases relate primarily to costs incurred to defend patents in Japan and general increases to support a direct sales team, and the acquired TMR business. General and administrative expenses in Q1-2008 decreased by $50,000 from Q4-2007 due to lower professional fees.

Depreciation expense increased to approximately $89,000 in Q1-2008 from approximately $52,000 in Q1-2007 primarily as a result of computer equipment purchased in 2007 for sales representatives hired during the period. Depreciation expense in Q1-2008 was generally consistent with Q4-2007.

Amortization increased by from $121,000 in Q1-2007 to $308,000 in Q1-2008 as a result of the acquisition of intangibles related to TMR and Xillix. Amortization in Q1-2008 was slightly higher than amortization in Q4-2007 because the final earn out amount associated with the TMR acquisition was calculated effective December 31, 2007.

The Company had interest expense in Q1-2007 of approximately $9,000 relating to a $3,000,000 note payable issued on March 20, 2007 in connection with the acquisition of TMR distribution rights. The note was repaid in 2007 and there was no interest expense in Q1-2008.

Interest income decreased by approximately $36,000 to $158,000 in Q1-2008 from $194,000 in Q1-2007. The primary reason was lower interest rates.

Net loss increased by approximately $1,138,000 to approximately $4,839,000 in Q1-2008 from approximately $3,701,000 in Q1-2007 primarily as a result of an increase in sales and marketing costs of approximately $567,000, an increase in R&D expenses of approximately $317,000, an increase in general and administrative expenses of approximately $581,000 which were partly offset by an increase in gross profit of $626,000.

As at March 31, 2008 the Company had cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments of approximately $14,775,000, a decrease of approximately $4,086,000 from December 31, 2007. Approximately $4,075,000 of the decrease relates to a net loss incurred during the period after deducting items not involving cash, a source of approximately $2,489,000 in net changes in non-cash working capital relating primarily to the collection of accounts receivable from Edwards, an investment in the TMR business of $2,089,000 relating to the payment to Edwards of earn-out purchase consideration, and an investment of approximately $436,000 in property, plant and equipment.

As at March 31, 2008 there were a total of 24,533,982 common shares (26,094,395 on a fully diluted basis) and no preferred shares outstanding. As at March 31, 2008 a total of 1,560,413 stock options were outstanding under the Company's employee stock option plan.

About Novadaq Technologies

Novadaq Technologies Inc. commercializes real-time imaging and image guidance systems for use in the operating room. With one set of proprietary core technologies, Novadaq's products have multiple applications. Novadaq's SPY System enables cardiac surgeons to diagnose intra-operatively by visually assessing coronary vasculature and bypass graft functionality during the course of heart bypass surgery. The SPY System is also indicated for use during other surgeries, such as cardiovascular, plastic, reconstructive, organ transplant and urological procedures. SPY can be used to visualize blood vessels, tumors, tumor margins and the lymphatic system. Novadaq introduced PINPOINT, its first minimally invasive imaging system for autofluorescence in October 2007. PINPOINT allows surgeons to differentiate between healthy and cancerous tissue in the lung and other hollow organs. Further expanding its portfolio of minimally invasive products, Novadaq is developing SPYscope which combines the typical features of a standard endoscope with the additional capabilities of SPY imaging. Novadaq is the exclusive United States distributor of PLC Medical's CO2 HEART LASER System, used in the same cardiac procedures as the SPY System. Novadaq also offers the OPTTX(R) System, which leverages the company(1)s core imaging technology and is designed for the diagnosis, evaluation and treatment of wet Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD).
