Labwire Announces Financial Results for the Second Quarter of 2008

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - September 8, 2008) - Labwire, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: LBWR), a leading provider of employee screening solutions and canine security and surveillance services, announced that Moore and Associates has completed it's review of the financial records and results for the quarter ending June 30, 2008 and is pleased to report the following results:

     1) Total Revenue of $ 1,019,324 vs. $ 1,009,310 in 2007. The increase
        in revenue is indicative of the first business from the USIS
        Alliance, strong performance of the OTI unit, and additional
        revenue from existing Labwire customers.

     2) Gross Profit improved to $ 522,520 vs. $ 445,379 in 2007. This
        represents a $ 77,141 increase or a 17.32% improvement. Most
        importantly, gross margin improved to 51% from 44% in 2007. This
        encouraging trend is indicative of the addition and growth of the
        OTI business, a swift and successful conversion of the first
        business from the USIS Alliance, and management's focus on adding
        high margin business to its existing contracts and capturing
        revenue for its technology services.

     3) Operating Expense:  Total operating expense was $ 430,694 vs.
        $ 298,988 in 2007. Management continues to focus on controlling
        operating expense. Most areas were flat or down except Payroll
        Expense which increased to $ 225,888 vs. $ 162,402 in 2007. This
        is primarily attributable to the addition of OTI. Management
        expects this to become less of a factor as the company is now set
        up for additional revenue growth in future quarters and the
        restructuring of OTI staffing needs have been addressed.

"The 2nd quarter pre-tax net income of $ 57,235 represents another in a string of profitable quarters for Labwire," stated Marlin Williford, CFO. "Our numbers were in line with our previous management release except a slight difference in net income of about $ 8,000. This was attributable to some additional amortization applied by our auditors. We continue to focus on controlling expense while improving margins and building revenue. We feel we have a good foundation established as we anticipate additional revenue growth in the second half of the year."

Dexter Morris, Labwire Chairman and CEO, provides the following insight into business activity for this year: "We have been working very hard to put everything in place to operate as a fully-reporting public company. This has been very time consuming as we move thru the various steps in the process. With the completion of the audit process thru June, we have cleared an important hurdle to up-listing. We will be aggressively pursuing this agenda in the near term and will keep our shareholders advised of our progress. The 2nd quarter numbers were very encouraging with $1MM+ revenue, increasing margins and profit, and the further growth and development of our OTI acquisition. We are also pleased to see the impact of our first revenue under the USIS Alliance (see press release May 15, 2008). We see great potential in this relationship. We thank our shareholders for their support and we are excited about the future business prospects for Labwire."
