Impressive Start to 2006 Continues

NEW BERLIN, WI -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 16, 2006 -- International Monetary Systems, Ltd. (OTC BB: INLM), a worldwide leader in business-to-business barter services, today announced that its revenue for February was $526,000, an increase of 42% over February 2005.

Don Mardak, President and CEO of International Monetary Systems, commented, "These recent numbers are quite impressive. Historically, January and February are the weakest months of the year for us. But this year, we have set new standards, as we are already 49% ahead of last year's income for the two months. In addition, International Monetary Systems is featured in the current issue of ValueRich Magazine and, last week, exhibited at the ValueRich Investor Conference in Miami, FL.
