SARASOTA, FL--(Marketwire - February 23, 2011) - Integrated Freight Corporation (http://www.integrated-freight.com) (OTCBB: IFCR) announced today that financial results were reported yesterday for its fiscal third quarter ended December 31, 2010.

For the quarter, gross revenue increased 135.5% to $10.34 million from $4.39 million for the same period in 2009. Additionally, net loss for the quarter increased to $1.68 million, up from $0.86 million during the previous year.

For the previous nine months, gross revenue increased 94.4% to $25.71 million from $13.22 million for the same nine month period in 2009.

Fiscal Third Quarter 2010 Financial Results

Revenues

For the nine months ended December 31, 2010, the Company reported revenues of $25,714,153 as compared to revenues of $13,323,711 for the nine months ended December 31, 2009, an increase of $12,490,442 or 94%. The increase is due to two primary factors: the acquisition of Triple C Transportation in May 2010 and the increase in freight revenue in correlation to the US economy.

Net Loss

The Company reported a net loss of $2,534,406 for the nine months ended December 31, 2010, as compared to a net loss of $2,430,828 for the nine months ended December 31, 2010, an increase of $103,578 or 4%. The increase was a result of increased sales and lower operating expenses as a percentage of sales offset by increased corporate level general and administrative expenses.

Outlook

Notwithstanding IFCR's operating losses in the comparative quarters covered by the report on Form 10-Q, the Company has experienced positive cash flows and improvements in its working capital positions at the subsidiary level during the quarter ended December 31, 2010, compared to the same quarter in 2009. As IFCR begins to consolidate the duplicated functions among its subsidiaries, it is expected to achieve further savings which will be reflected in improved cash flows and working capital positions, and profitable operations of which there is no assurance. The expenses associated with maintaining the Company's reporting under the Securities Exchange Act at the parent level has significantly contributed to consolidated negative cash flow and working capital positions. In particular, the legal and accounting expenses associated with acquisitions and first-time audits of acquisition candidates have resulted in greater cash outflows and expenses in these categories than IFCR expects to experience when its acquisition program matures in the future. The Company does not expect a positive change in these factors until it completes additional acquisitions, if any, which will enable IFCR to spread the parent's expenses, associated with being a publicly traded and reporting company and costs of future acquisition over a larger revenue and cash flow base.

Although management is optimistic about the economic recovery, the transportation industry is generally cash lean with over-leveraged balance sheets. IFCR intends to invest more heavily as demand for truckload services improves. The Company believes it is well-positioned to grow its business as the recovery continues to develop.
