Orsus Xelent Announces 2010 Third Quarter Results; Achieves Small Gain on Substantially Reduced Revenues

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 15, 2010) - Orsus Xelent Technologies, Inc. (NYSE Amex: ORS), a designer and manufacturer of award-winning mobile phones for the Asian market, today announced results for its 2010 third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2010. 

Revenues in this year's third quarter decreased significantly year over year from $19,125,000 to $5,907,000. The Company achieved a gain in the quarter of $117,000 compared with net income of $1,370,000 or $.05 per share in the third quarter last year.

For the first nine months of 2010, the Company reported revenues decreased to $19,971,000 from $62,181,000 in the same period year over year. The Company incurred a net loss on the lower revenues of ($585,000), compared to net income of $5,812,000, or $.19 per share, for the same period in 2009.

The Company said results in the recent quarter were affected by a decline in demand in the market for low-priced, non 3-G products, a major focus of the Company, as many of the larger telecom companies have focused on gaining market share in the rural areas of China. Additionally, the Company's distributors experienced a decline in the number of anticipated large orders from their major customers.
