CTI Group Reports Third Quarter 2009 Results

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwire - November 13, 2009) - CTI Group (Holdings) Inc. (OTCBB: CTIG), an international provider of electronic invoice processing and management (EIM), enterprise communications management software and services solutions, and carrier class voice over internet protocol (VoIP) management applications, reported revenues for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009 of $3,571,487 and $11,660,097, respectively, compared to revenues for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2008 of $7,916,986 and $18,291,693, respectively. The decrease in revenues was primarily due to the decline in the exchange rates of the UK pound and lack of patent enforcement revenue in 2009 compared to 2008. The Company derives the majority of its revenue from its UK operations. The Company reported a net (loss) for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009 of $(337,549), or ($0.01) per share and (1,528,238), or ($0.05) per share, respectively, as compared to a net income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2008 of $1,530,479 or $0.05 per share and $798,326 or $0.03 per share, respectively. The increase in net loss was primarily associated with the decreased revenues.

Commenting on the results, John Birbeck, CTI Group's President and CEO, stated, "Depressed global economic conditions, weakness of the UK Pound and lack of patent enforcement revenues have had an unfavorable impact on our 2009 performance. We continue to remain positive and encouraged by the increased number of opportunities in our markets and remain cautiously optimistic."
