CTI Group Reports Second Quarter 2008 Results

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwire - August 14, 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 and six months ended June 30, 2008 of $5,035,495 and $10,374,707, respectively, as compared to revenues for the three and six months ended June 30, 2007 of $6,101,122 and $11,155,682, respectively. The Company reported a net loss for the three and six months ended June 30, 2008 of ($553,412) or ($0.02) per share, and ($732,153) or ($0.03) per share, respectively, as compared to net income of $48,957 or $0.00 per share for the three months ended June 30, 2007 and net loss of ($533,939) or ($0.02) per share for the six months ended June 30, 2007. The decrease in revenues and increase in net loss in 2008 was primarily due to the lack of license or settlement agreements from patent enforcement segment activities in the three and six months ended June 30, 2008.

Commenting on the results, John Birbeck, CTI Group's President and CEO, stated, "We continue to work on and have incurred significant patent license and enforcement costs in the first half of 2008 without a new settlement or license agreement being recognized. Although no assurances can be given, we anticipate that we will be able to finalize a settlement agreement during the second half of 2008."

Commenting on product developments, Mr. Birbeck stated, "I believe that the high level of innovation of our people will result in significant new products in E-Billing (EIM) and VoIP applications which positions us well to meet the growing demand of fixed-mobile convergence markets."

The Company's new hosted VoIP applications are expected to help eliminate customer resistance to conversion to next-generation platforms, while creating new revenue opportunities for service providers through the delivery of compelling value added services.
