IN-TOUCH SURVEY SYSTEMS LTD. ANNOUNCES PROFITABLE Q2 2010 FINANCIAL RESULTS

OTTAWA, Aug. 24 /CNW/ - In-Touch Survey Systems Ltd. ("In-Touch" TSX-Venture: INX) announces revenue of $1,300,599 in Q2 2010 compared to $1,414,500 in Q2 2009. Net Income for Q2 2010 increased 178% to $70,418 compared to a net loss of $89,267 in Q2 2009. The Company-defined adjusted EBITDA increased 563% to $181,000 in Q2 2010, compared to an EBITDA of $27,000 in Q2 2009.

"In-Touch is still adjusting to the effects from the 2009 recession as revenues return to pre-recession levels. The company has now enjoyed four consecutive quarters of positive income from operations; has an increasingly diversified revenue base; and encouraging financial performance in terms of net income and cash flow because of our continued investment in software tools for product development and operations", said Michael Gaffney, Chief Executive Officer.

"Looking forward, revenues for Q3 2010 will exceed revenues for the same period of 2009. Currently, Q4 2010 bookings exceed 66% of target but it is still too early to accurately forecast final Q4 2010 revenues. However, we are predicting that FY 2010 will be net income positive with a significant amount of positive cash flow (EBITDA)", said Gaffney.
