Ophthalmic Imaging Systems Reports First Quarter Financial Results

Announces Appointment of Full-Time Abraxas Medical Systems CEO

SACRAMENTO, CA--(Marketwire - May 13, 2011) - Ophthalmic Imaging Systems (OIS) (OTCBB: OISI), a leading digital imaging, image management, Electronic Medical Records (EMR) and Practice Management (PM) company, today reported financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2011, and provided an update on recent corporate developments.

For the first quarter of 2011, OIS reported net revenue of $3.5 million, compared with net revenue of $4.1 million for the first quarter of 2010. Lower product sales in the 2011 quarter are attributable primarily to the introduction of improved software in March for the OIS EyeScan™, which delayed product sales for two months during the quarter, and lower EMR/PM product sales due to a shift of focus and priorities at OIS' wholly owned subsidiary Abraxas Medical Systems, following the appointment of a full-time Chief Executive Officer.

Operating expenses for the first quarter of 2011 were $3.2 million, compared with $2.9 million for the first quarter of 2010. Sales and marketing expenses increased to $1.7 million, compared with $1.5 million in the prior year period, with the increase primarily due to an increase in the sales force at OIS and Abraxas.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2011 was $1.5 million, or $0.05 per share, compared with net loss of $1.5 million, or $0.06 per share, for the first quarter of 2010.

"We are reporting important recent developments aimed at supporting growth and improving our position in both the informatics solutions and ophthalmic digital imaging markets," said Gil Allon, Chief Executive Officer of OIS. "To better capitalize on favorable market dynamics in the informatics solutions market, we appointed Garret Erskine as full-time Chief Executive Officer of Abraxas. Garret is a seasoned professional with more than 20 years in healthcare IT experience. He brings Abraxas proven leadership, revenue building and operational efficiency abilities, and first-hand knowledge of the EMR solutions market. We thank our Chief Financial Officer Ariel Shenhar who had taken on the additional responsibility of leading Abraxas since inception in January 2008. With Garret's appointment, Ariel will be able to place additional focus on overseeing our financial operations during this critical time when we see prospects for significant growth.

"We also introduced improved software for the OIS EyeScan toward the end of March, which delayed product sales for two months during the quarter. Our ultraportable, modular EyeScan imaging device has capabilities to capture images of both the anterior and posterior of the eye, opening new marketing opportunities in international markets as well as within the domestic optometry market. With the introduction of the new software, we believe sales of the OIS EyeScan are now back on track."

"We increased our investment in sales and marketing activities, primarily in the U.S. market," he added. "Our sales function is separated into teams with one team solely focused on selling the OIS EyeScan, another selling Abraxas EMR and PM systems to the non-ophthalmic markets and the third selling all other product lines, including our other ophthalmic digital imaging product and OIS EMR and PM solutions, to the eye-care market. We believe this strategy and our investment will support future revenue increases."
