TouchIT Technologies Inc. Continues Its Profitability With Sales Growth of 176% for the Year Ended December 31st 2010

ISTANBUL, TURKEY--(Marketwire - March 31, 2011) -  TouchIT Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: TUCN), a leading manufacturer of touch-based visual communication products, has announced today that sales grew 176% in 2010 and the Company continues to post profits.

Total revenues for the twelve-month period ending December 31st 2010 reached $3.58 million, a 176% increase from the $2.05 million of revenues reported at the end of the same period of 2009. Gross profit was $1.07 million or 30% of net sales, as of December 31st, 2010, up 375% from $287,027 in the same period in 2009. Total comprehensive income at the end of the year 2010 was $165,178. This compares with a net loss of $262,178 for year-end 2009.

Additionally, the Company recently closed on a $1 million ABL facility through TCA Global Credit Master Fund LP to meet its rapid growth expectations into 2011. This will help the Company increase its production capacity of both the interactive whiteboards and the soon-to-be launched new range of Interactive LCDs.

"We are outperforming the visual communication market and some of our much larger competitors with our rate of growth," commented Andi Brabin, TouchIT Technologies' Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Brabin further added that the improving performance has been "a result of continued expansion" in both the Middle East and the U.S. market places, with the U.S. currently being the largest market in the world for Interactive products.

With a growing sales channel and several potential OEM opportunities, TouchIT Technologies is confident that it will achieve its earlier sales forecast for 2011.
