Top Image Systems Reports Fourth Consecutive Quarter of Growing Profitability

First Quarter 2006 Revenues Up 15% Year-Over-Year

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 10, 2006 -- Top Image Systems, Ltd. (NASDAQ: TISA), the leading innovator of data capture solutions, today announced its financial results for the first quarter of 2006.

Revenues for the first quarter of 2006 were $4.54 million, an increase of 15% from the $3.96 million revenues recorded for the first quarter of 2005, and a 4% decrease from the $4.71 million revenues for the fourth quarter of 2005. The first quarter is seasonally the weakest quarter of the year in TIS' market. 43% of first quarter revenues were generated from services and 57% from products. 55% of the quarterly revenues were generated from existing customers and 45% from new customers.

Net income for the first quarter was $181 thousand, compared with a net loss of $771 thousand in the first quarter of 2005, and net income of $152 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2005. Net income per share in this quarter was $0.021 compared with net loss per share of $0.888 in the first quarter of 2005, and net income per share of $0.017 in the fourth quarter of 2005.

First quarter highlights:

--  First quarter revenues increased 15% year-over-year.
    
--  Operating profit in the first quarter was $101 thousand, compared with
    an operating loss of $692 thousand in the first quarter of 2005.
    
--  Company generated positive operating cash flow.
    
--  Success in Japan and the UK generated 20% and 27% of company's
    quarterly revenues respectively.
    
--  Levels of activity in the USA and Latin America showed growth. A new
    project for The World's Foremost Bank broke new ground for eFLOW Ability in
    the USA.
    
--  A number of sales activities in Europe are expected to mature in the
    second quarter of 2006.
    
--  Increased awareness, mainly in the UK, of TIS' compelling solution for
    Oracle enterprise resource planning (ERP) was achieved.
    
"We are delighted to announce strong first-quarter 2006 results. Revenues, operating profits and net income are all up with strong organic year-over-year growth," commented Dr. Ido Schechter, Chief Executive Officer of Top Image Systems. "Although our first quarter is seasonally the weakest, there has only been a slight sequential revenue decline. The significant revenue increase over the first quarter of 2005 is a good sign for the rest of the year."

Dr. Schechter continued, "This was the last quarter of the Japanese fiscal year and we have witnessed growing levels of activity in this market. With the recently reported acquisition of the Nagase Healthcare business, we have gained direct access to many of the Japanese healthcare companies, resulting in introductions of eFLOW to a growing number of potential customers. Furthermore, the current regulatory changes in the healthcare business in Japan significantly increase the potential of our offering to the market."

Dr. Schechter concluded, "In the past few months, we have seen strong and growing market interest, particularly in Europe, for eFLOW Ability, our SAP-based solution. We have already announced a number of projects and are implementing over half a dozen new projects. This, and our general performance over the last few months, makes us increasingly confident in our ability to maintain our growth and improve our profitability throughout 2006."
