AutoInfo, Inc. Announces Quarterly Results

BOCA RATON, FL--(Marketwire - May 17, 2010) - AutoInfo, Inc. (OTCBB: AUTO), a non-asset based third party logistics service provider, today announced results of its operations for the quarter ended March 31, 2010. The Company reported gross revenues of $56.9 million as compared with $35.3 million for the prior year period. Gross profit was $10.9 million for the current period as compared with $7.8 million for the prior year period. Net income and basic earnings per share were $425,000 and $.01 per share, respectively, as compared with $219,000 and $ .01 per share for the prior year period.

Harry Wachtel, President, stated, "We are pleased to report an increase in gross revenues and profits as we move through this time of economic recovery. While this trend is a positive sign, there are no assurances that it is indicative of future results. We did experience an increase in the cost of purchased transportation during the quarter caused by an increased demand for transportation and a decrease in available capacity. We are poised to capitalize in an improved business environment and we will continue our agent network expansion efforts and seek out strategic growth opportunities."

AutoInfo, Inc. operates in two business segments, non-asset based transportation services and agent support services. The non-asset based transportation services segment includes our brokerage and contract carrier services which are provided through a network of independent sales agents throughout the United States and Canada. Revenue in this segment is generated from freight transportation transactions. The agent support services segment includes an array of services that we provide to our agent network to support and encourage the expansion of our agents' businesses, primarily financial support through interest bearing long-term loans and non-interest bearing short-term loans, as well as other services including training, margin analysis, marketing assistance, industry and market segment data and business analysis tools. Revenue in this segment consists primarily of interest on interest bearing loans. This segment also includes potential revenues related to profit participations and realization on options to acquire equity that we may receive related to a loan or advance extended to an agent.
