BROSSARD, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - March 25, 2011) - Biotonix (TSX VENTURE:BTX) ("Biotonix), a leader in postural health, today announced the financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2010. "Biotonix has just completed its first fiscal year as a public company. Recent financings helped boost the visibility of the Company's products worldwide, including Europe. Now that new R&D targets have been prioritized, the Company can focus its sales initiatives on two high-potential markets: fitness and corporate health. According to recent findings published by the Wellness Council of America, companies save $3 in health costs for every $1 invested in wellness programs. The sales cycles for both markets is estimated at 9 to 12 months. The outlook for 2011 suggests increased adoption of our applications and a marked drop in operating expenses", declared Louise St-Onge, CEO.
