Integral Vision, Inc. Announces Year End 2009 Results

WIXOM, MI--(Marketwire - March 31, 2010) - Integral Vision, Inc. (OTCBB: INVI), a leading global supplier of automated display inspection technology, today announced financial results for its fiscal year ending December 31, 2009.

Business Highlights

--  Integral Vision experienced increased sales activity in 2009 and
    achieved a 71% increase in revenues over those in 2008.
--  The Company increased its gross margin percentage from 42 percent 
    in 2008 to 50 percent in 2009, and expects further margin improvement
    in 2010.
--  Integral Vision is gaining considerable traction with its SharpEye
    inspection system used for Emerging Display Technologies. In 2010,
    MEMS Technologies (Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems), and e-paper are
    forecast to experience significant production increases over that of
    2009. This trend is associated with expected growth in sales of smart
    phones, e-readers, and tablets.
--  The Company has delivered several SharpEye inspection systems to LCD
    manufacturers in the current 2010 calendar year.  Interest in AOI
    (Automated Optical Inspection) is very high with LCD manufacturers due
    to the need for better quality displays.  This need is driven by
    increased content of information and video displayed on smaller
    displays.

"We enter 2010 with confidence that this year will be much improved over 2009," said Charles J. Drake, chairman and CEO of Integral Vision, Inc. "We expect revenues will be generated from Emerging Display Technologies and from traditional LCD manufacturers. In addition, we expect to see our gross margin increase again from the 50% we experienced in 2009. Comprehensive inspection of all types of displays seems to be a priority to display manufacturers. Yield management is now a priority for all display types. We have the ability to manufacture our product in Asia, and we have sales potential in Taiwan, Korea, China, and Japan."

2009 Year-End Financial Results

Total revenue for fiscal 2009 increased to $1,754,000 from $1,027,000 for fiscal 2008. The company lost $2.76 million, or $0.09 per share, in 2009 compared with a loss of $10.7 million, or $0.36 per share, in 2008. The company's loss in 2009 consisted of an operating loss of $1,926,000 and other expenses of $835,000.

CONFERENCE CALL

Integral Vision will host its usual conference call at the end of April and will announce the date and time of the call within the next few weeks.
