C2 Global Technologies Inc. Reports 2009 Second Quarter Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 10, 2009) - C2 Global Technologies Inc. ("C2" or the "Company") (OTCBB:COBT) today reported its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2009. All amounts are stated in US dollars.

The Company had net income of $0.1 million or $0.01 per common share, basic and diluted, for the second quarter of 2009, compared to net income of $0.3 million or $0.01 per common share, basic and diluted, for the second quarter of 2008.

For the second quarter of 2009 the Company's revenue from continuing operations was $4.1 million, compared to $1.9 million for the second quarter of 2008. $3.1 million of the revenue was earned by the Company's 75%-owned subsidiary, Counsel RB Capital, LLC ("Counsel RB"), which commenced operations in the second quarter of 2009. The remaining $1.0 million is from a license agreement that the Company entered into in June 2009 with respect to C2's patents in the Republic of Korea. The 2008 revenue was from a settlement and license agreement that the Company entered into in May 2008 with a US telecommunications carrier.

For the six months ended June 30, 2009, the Company had a net loss of $0.2 million compared to net income of $2.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2008. The net loss per common share for the six months ended June 30, 2009 was $0.01, basic and diluted, compared to net income of $0.09, basic and diluted, for the six months ended June 30, 2008. The Company's operating revenue from continuing operations for the six months ended June 30, 2009 was $4.1 million, as detailed above, as compared to $8.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2008. All of the 2008 revenue was from three settlement and license agreements with US telecommunications carriers.

In May 2009, C2 invested $2.6 million to indirectly acquire an approximate 5% interest in Polaroid Corporation, pursuant to a Chapter 11 reorganization in a U.S. bankruptcy court. C2's interest will be managed by Knight's Bridge Capital Management L.P., an affiliate of C2's parent, Counsel Corporation.

"We are pleased with the progress made by C2 in the second quarter of 2009", said Allan Silber, Chairman and CEO of C2.
