YOQNEAM, ISRAEL--(Marketwire - November 9, 2010) - MIND C.T.I. LTD. (NASDAQ: MNDO), a leading provider of convergent end-to-end billing and customer care product based solutions for service providers as well as telecom expense management (call accounting) solutions, today announced results for the third quarter of 2010.

Revenue Distribution for Q3 2010
Sales in the Americas represented 39.3% and sales in Europe represented 47.8% of total revenue.

Revenue from customer care and billing software totaled $3.9 million, while revenue from enterprise call accounting software was $0.8 million.

Impairment of Goodwill and another Intangible Asset
During the third quarter of each year we perform impairment tests for the value of goodwill and other intangible assets. Following the test performed in Q3 2010, we recorded an impairment charge of $586 thousand for goodwill and $407 thousand for intangible assets related to the company we acquired in the UK in 2007. The balance sheet as of September 30, 2010 shows a remaining amount of $5.4 million for goodwill, related to the company we acquired in US in 2005.

New Win & Follow-on Orders
The new win is a multi-year agreement with a regional wireless carrier that is a member of the Sprint Rural Alliance. MIND will implement its MINDBill end-to-end convergent billing solution. This operator will utilize MIND's convergent pay in advance and postpaid billing, rating, invoicing, roaming, customer care, web self-care, point of sale, inventory management, commissions, Web services, workflow engine, provisioning, mediation, and dashboard reporting, in order to support their wireless services.

The follow-on orders were received from various customers including two wireless carriers who have been MIND's customers since 2005 and one green-field operator that has halted its activity in the past and is re-starting it now. These follow-on orders are related to either enhanced rating capabilities, adding point of sale or order management to the existing MIND platform.

Monica Iancu, Chairperson and CEO, commented: "We are pleased with the year-to-year growth and believe that the decrease in revenue compared to the previous quarter is mainly related to timing of revenue recognition of one almost completed project. The new win this quarter increases the long-term backlog and strengthens our US footprint. We are especially pleased with the vote of confidence that we get from our customers as they enhance the part of their business that is supported by our solutions. This validates our strategy of developing additional modules to further enhance our solutions of billing and full customer-care, to support the carriers' point of sale, business intelligence reporting needs and much more. We continue to execute our strategy and to generate outstanding positive cash flow from operating activities."
