CTI Group Reports First Quarter 2008 Results

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwire - May 15, 2008) - 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 months ended March 31, 2008 of $5,339,212 compared to $5,054,560 for the three months ended March 31, 2007. The increase in revenues was primarily associated with increased EIM revenues generated in the UK. The Company reported a net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2008 of $(179,843) or $(0.01) cents a share compared to a net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2007 of ($586,701) or (0.02) cents a share. The reduction in net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2008 was a combination of increased revenue generation and reduced selling, general and administration expenses associated with certain cost efficiencies realized in the operations of the EIM and telemangement business segments.

Commenting on the results, John Birbeck, CTI President and CEO, stated, "We are pleased with the improvement in performance, especially the performance of our acquired operations, CTI Billing Solutions, Ltd. in Blackburn, UK, which provides EIM software and solutions to major mobile phone carriers in Europe. We believe these operations provide us with a growing recurring revenue stream with leading international telecommunications service providers, with the emphasis on mobility and new on-line services."

Commenting on product developments, Mr. Birbeck stated, "We continue to develop our VoIP applications to meet new market opportunities and the demands of Tier 1 Carriers. We believe we are well positioned for growth in the VoIP market as the Carriers begin deployment in the future. Current and proposed government legislation in Europe regarding financial services companies may increase the demand for VoIP Call Recording more rapidly as VoIP systems are deployed by their Carriers."
