TORONTO, CANADA -- (May 10, 2001) -- DataMirror Corporation (Nasdaq: DMCX; TSE: DMC), a leading provider of enterprise application integration and resiliency solutions, today announced preliminary estimates of its financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2002. For the quarter ended April 30, 2001, the Company estimates revenue will be approximately $13.3 - $13.5 million and the net loss from operations before equity accounting for DataMirror’s investment in PointBase will be in the range of $700,000 to $900,000 (($0.05) to ($0.07) per share). Positive cash flow from operations is expected to exceed $6 million for the quarter ended April 30, 2001.

These preliminary estimates differ slightly from the guidance that the Company provided for Q1 2002 when it announced its results for fiscal 2001. At that time the Company estimated revenues would be in the range of $14 - $14.5 million and a net loss from operations of ($0.05) per share for the first quarter of fiscal 2002. “Our preliminary results indicate that revenues from North American and Asian operations were in line with the Company’s expectations, however revenues in EMEA operations were slightly less than expected,” said Nigel Stokes, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Even though revenue from EMEA was lower than anticipated, we are pleased with the overall progress in DataMirror’s business during the first quarter and the year over year revenue growth that we were able to sustain. We believe that existing and new customers will continue to adopt DataMirror’s products for the competitive advantages they provide,” said Mr. Stokes.

DataMirror’s actual results for the first quarter of fiscal 2002 are scheduled to be announced on May 29th, 2001. DataMirror will hold a conference call at 8:30 a.m. (Eastern Time) on May 11, 2001, to discuss its preliminary results for Q1 2002 announced in this release.
