Strategic Environmental & Energy Resources Reports Financial Results for 2009 and 2008

COMMERCE CITY, CO--(Marketwire - January 13, 2011) - Strategic Environmental & Energy Resources, Inc. (SEER) (PINKSHEETS: SENR), a provider of technology-based industrial services in the environmental, energy, and rail transportation sectors, today reported financial results for its fiscal years ended December 31, 2009 and 2008.

Revenue for 2009 increased to approximately $9.0 million from approximately $8.4 million in 2008 primarily as a result of a full year of revenue from the Company's MV subsidiary, which was acquired in June 2008.

Operating income excluding depreciation and amortization and stock-based compensation was approximately $154,000 for 2009, a positive swing of approximately $1.8 million over an adjusted operating loss of approximately $1.6 million in 2008. The improvement was attributed to higher revenue and gross margins in combination with and a focus away from low margin third-party transportation revenue.

The Company reduced its net loss in 2009 to approximately $1.2 million, or $0.05 per share, from approximately $2.3 million, or $0.10 per share, in 2008.

At December 31, 2009, the Company reported total assets of approximately $3.8 million, total liabilities of approximately $4.3 million and a stockholders' deficit of nearly $533,000.

While management expects to report lower revenue and adjusted operating income in 2010, primarily due to the impact of the economy on its rail operations and a significant reduction of low margin third-party transportation revenue, the Company expects to achieve improved results in 2011.

John Combs, president of SEER, said, "We are pleased with the solid progress we made in 2009 that gave us a good foundation to operate in the continued uncertain economic environment. As we enter 2011, we see signs of improvement in all sectors we serve and some significant growth opportunities emerging as a result of the synergies developing from our combination of businesses. We are continuing our progress in organization development, management and executive hirings, and have already consummated select acquisitions of new complementary opportunities and technologies in the last two months -- all with the intent to aggressively grow and improve our domestic core businesses and become fully reporting in 2011."
