Hypertension Diagnostics Announces Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2011 Results

ST. PAUL, MN--(Marketwire - February 11, 2011) - Hypertension Diagnostics, Inc. (OTCBB: HDII), today announced financial results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2011 ("Q2 2011") ended December 31, 2010.

Revenue for Q2 2011 was $457,986 compared to $458,325 for the second quarter of fiscal year 2010 ended December 31, 2009 ("Q2 2010"). During Q2 2010, the Company recorded revenue of $106,340 related to the START study funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to determine whether the measurement of arterial elasticity can assist in the prevention of cardiovascular disease in HIV patients. Without the START study, revenues for Q2 2010 were $351,985. There were no START revenues after the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010 ended June 30, 2010. Excluding START, revenues for Q2 2011 of $457,986 were up by 32% compared to revenues for Q2 2010 of $351,985.

The Company realized a net loss of $181,397 for Q2 2011 or $.00 per share, compared with a net loss of $233,129 for Q2 2010, or $(.01) per share. Included in the net loss for Q2 2011 is a non-cash deferred compensation expense of $116,250. The deferred stock compensation expense was a direct result of the increase in Company's stock price which increased from $0.09 at the beginning of the quarter to $0.095 as the end of the quarter which caused the overall accrual to increase by $64,125 and the Company recorded $52,125 of additional deferred compensation to its CEO during the quarter. The Company reported a cash balance on December 31, 2010 of $924,060, a 3.9% increase compared with a cash balance of $889,425 on September 30, 2010.

For the six month period which ended December 31, 2010, total revenue was $715,194, compared to $760,400 for the six month period which ended December 31, 2009, a 5.9% decrease. Without the START study revenues of $205,085 for the six months ended December 31, 2009, revenue was $555,315. Compared to $715,194 for the six months ended December 31, 2010, there was a 29% increase in revenue.

The Company realized net income of $82,824 or $0.00 per share, including a non-cash deferred compensation benefit of $261,750 for the six month period ended December 31, 2010, compared to a net loss of $1,013,196 or $(.02) per share, which included a non-cash deferred compensation charge of $1,123,500 for the six month period ended December 31, 2009.

"We continue to make progress in growing our business," said Mark Schwartz, Chairman and CEO. "We continue to expand our network of independent distributors and their success provides evidence of our ability to capitalize on the market opportunity to help physicians better identify and manage cardiovascular disease," commented Schwartz.
