("Cal Nano" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that unaudited revenue in the fourth quarter ended February 28, 2014 was approximately $174,000 US ( $193,500 CDN).

Total unaudited revenue for the year was approximately $371,000 US ( $413,000 CDN). In US dollar terms, this represents an approximate increase of 42% over fiscal 2013.
