Global Market  -"PRPX")  today  announced  unaudited net income of $1,443,000 or
$0.15 per share for the fourth  quarter ended  December 31, 2009,  and unaudited
net  income of  $6,805,000  or $0.71 per share for the year ended  December  31,
2009.  These amounts  compare to unaudited net income of $1,515,000 or $0.16 per

$7,779,000  or $0.81 per share for the year ended  December 31, 2008.  Per share

ended  December  31,  2009 were $92.2  million  compared  to net sales of $109.0
million for the year ended December 31, 2008.

Richard J. Jarosinski,  President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We believe
that our  financial  results  for the  fourth  quarter  and full  year  2009 are
respectable,  considering  that we  continued  to operate in a very  challenging
economy.  During 2009, we succeeded in significantly  reducing  inventory levels
and generated good  operational  cash flow.  During the fourth quarter,  we also
recognized  income tax  benefits  of $0.02 per share  related  primarily  to the
recapture of research and development credits from prior years, and we continued
to benefit from a lower interest rate environment. We also developed new product
and service features for further  expansion of our friction  management  product
group and positioned the company in new markets like China."
