Net income for the 2008 third quarter was $318,800, compared with a net loss of $43,269 for the three months ended September 30, 2007.

Basic earnings (loss) per share for the three months ended September 30, 2008 and 2007 was $0.00 in each of the respective periods on weighted average shares of 167,118,739 and 151,187,580, respectively. Diluted earnings (loss) per share for the three months ended September 30, 2008 and 2007 was $0.00 in each of the respective periods on weighted average shares of 201,883,203 and 151,187,580, respectively.

Strong revenue growth in the 2008 third quarter was driven by an increase in recurring revenue among two of our operating business units, as well as a $447,408 contribution from our Questys Solutions, Inc. (QSI) business unit, which we acquired effective August 1, 2008.

"With a client roster of more than 1,400, we continue to focus on balanced growth both internally as well as through selective synergistic acquisitions such as QSI. At the same time, we are continuing to emphasize and drive efficiency and effectiveness throughout our group of companies, and we are now beginning to feel the real impact of this having achieved net profitability in the third quarter, on 19% revenue growth," Mr. Conner said.

"We continue to work to align each business unit around shared goals and performance targets. We are also striving to maximize cross-selling activities and we are devoting strategic product management and technical resources both to strengthening the integration of our existing products and services and to developing new products and services that will allow us to offer our clients powerful new solutions comprised of the best that each of our business units has to offer," he added.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2008, VillageEDOCS had consolidated net revenue of $10,965,907, an 8% increase over net revenue for the prior year period of $10,176,538.
