GreenHouse Holdings Announces First Quarter Revenue Increase of 33%

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - May 18, 2011) - GreenHouse Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: GRHU) ("GreenHouse"), a San Diego, California-based integrated energy solutions provider and developer of eco-friendly infrastructure, announced revenue results of approximately $1.5 million for the First Quarter 2011 and is providing a shareholder update.

"We successfully increased revenue by 33% based on strong sales from our Automated Demand Response solutions, as well as while increasing training services provided by our Life Protection Inc. ("LPI" or "Life Protection") division," stated John Galt, CEO of GreenHouse Holdings. "Additionally, GreenHouse signed a $151 million contract for the design, development and construction of a national security training center. The project represents our largest building contract to date and will provide us with a stable revenue base for the next 3 years. During the quarter we also signed a $28 million agreement to provide sustainable textured coating product to OceanSafe, a manufacturer of leading-edge steel structural insulated panels, for use in the construction of energy efficient buildings. These contracts validate GreenHouse's strategic business model of leveraging key political relationships and cost-effective sustainable energy solutions, in order to become a market leader within the government contracting market. We expect to begin ramping our revenues from these projects in the second half of 2011."

Mr. Galt continued, "We intend to expand operations in our LPI division internationally, to become a one-stop-shop for worldwide, green, government contracting solutions. Management believes that the Middle East and Central America present strong opportunities for our sustainable facilities market, and we will continue to add to our contract pipeline. Based on our relationships with PepsiCo and SoCal Edison, our ADR division is rapidly growing, and we expect to sign additional contracts in the near-term. We are confident that we possess a platform capable of providing sustained operational and financial growth. We remain committed to increasing our revenue while reducing overhead across all business lines, as we strive to achieve our ultimate goals of increased earnings and improved shareholder value."

Results of Operations for the First Quarter ended March 31, 2011

Revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2011 were approximately $1,471,000 compared to approximately $1,103,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2010, an increase of 33%. The increase was the result of $323,000 in revenue generated by Life Protection Inc., which GreenHouse acquired on September 8, 2010, in the Sustainable Facilities Solutions ("SFS") segment. The gross profit percentage was 44% and 49% for the three months ended March 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively. The decrease in gross profit percentage was due to increased costs incurred as a result of rain delays on a large project completed by Life Protection, Inc.

Operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2011 were approximately $1,714,000 compared to approximately $1,075,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2010. The increase was due to the number of employees and to increased sales and marketing expenses to support the sales and marketing efforts of our new service offerings in the Energy Efficiency Solutions ("EES") segment and SFS segments. The additional increase was due to the non-cash depreciation expense of fixed assets and amortization expense of distribution rights and other intangibles.

Net loss was approximately $1,196,000 for three months ended March 31, 2011 compared to a net loss of approximately $926,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2010.
