Remedent Reports Fourth Quarter and Year End Results and to Host a Conference Call at 10 AM EDT, Tuesday, July 19, 2011

GENT, BELGIUM--(Marketwire - Jul 15, 2011) - Remedent, Inc. (OTCBB: REMI), an international company specializing in research, development, and manufacturing of oral care and cosmetic dentistry products, reported results for the fourth quarter and for the year ended March 31, 2011 (in US Dollars).

Net sales for the fourth quarter increased 17% to $2.8 million from $2.4 million in the same year ago quarter. The increase in sales is attributable to increased sales in Asia.

Loss from operations in the fourth quarter was a loss of $933,000 compared to a loss of $462,330 in the same year ago quarter.

Net sales for the year increased by $4.25 million, 52% to $12.5 million in the year ended March 31, 2011 as compared to $8.25 million of sales in the year ended March 31, 2010. Net loss for the year ended March 31, 2011 was $1.5 million or $(.08) per share, as compared with a loss of $2.4 million, or $(0.12) per share for the year ended March 31, 2010.

Cash and Cash equivalents totaled $1.6 million at March 31, 2011 as opposed to $614,000 at March 31, 2010.

Management Commentary:

"Our investment in our Chinese operations continues to exceed our expectations. For the year ended March 31, 2011, Glamsmile Asia generated approximately $850,000 in net income prior to tax. We anticipate further growth in China as a new fourth studio is expected to open in Wenzhou, China in September 2011.

"Our net loss for the year was negatively impacted by an impairment loss of $750,000 for Soca Networks Singapore, an investment made in a production facility to produce our Glamsmile veneers. The investment was made in two installments of $375,000 each, with the last payment being made in March 2008. Since management believes that the time-frame for recovery cannot be predicted with any certainty and as a result we took a 100% impairment allowance at year-end. In addition to this, our results were also impacted by the write off of approximately $100,000 for certain patents which are unrelated to our veneer market and current strategic plan. In addition, our results also reflect a deferred revenue of $475,250 for an advance payment we received for veneers. Upon delivery of the veneers, the cost of goods sold will be recorded and the revenue recognized.

"For the remainder of the fiscal year, management intends to focus its efforts and resources on expanding and developing its Chinese operations, where it sees growth and potential. This focus may include changing the name of our entity from Remedent, Inc. to Glamsmile Inc., and seeking additional board members who have relevant experience with our business, particularly in the dental market in Asia. In addition, management intends to focus on reducing current and future corporate overhead expenses, by consolidating some of its operations and repositioning the strategy of its USA and European operations on establishing revenue streams through royalty agreements for its products.

"We certainly are looking forward to getting Glamsmile Asia positioned as one of the leading dental brands luxury brands in China as well as the neighboring nearby other emerging Asian markets," said Guy De Vreese, the CEO of Remedent.
