Financial Results Driven by Growth in Representative Base and New Revenue Streams

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - December 7, 2010) - Zurvita Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: ZRVT) (OTCBB: ZRVTE) ("Zurvita" or the "Company"), a dynamic direct-to-consumer network marketing company offering turn-key solutions for high-quality consumer and business products and services, today announced its financial results for the 2010 fiscal year ended July 31, 2010.

Fiscal 2010 Highlights

-- Full year fiscal 2010 revenues reached $6.3 million.

-- Full year fiscal 2010 gross profit rose to $1.7 million.

-- Gross margin for full year fiscal 2010 was 26.7%.

-- Net loss for full year fiscal 2010 was $11.5 million, or $0.20 per diluted share.

-- Held "Champions Weekend" and "Freedom Crusade" national conferences, drawing over 1000 in combined attendance.

-- Launched national online business advertising campaign and introduced enhancements to proprietary local search advertising and search engine directory, "ZLinked."

-- Introduced a series of enhanced business tools to capitalize on major market growth opportunities.

-- Increased total number of sales representatives by approximately 100%.

"We are excited by the results we achieved in fiscal 2010 as we continued to increase our revenue by introducing compelling new products that no one else has, such as commercial energy sales, which represents a multi-billion dollar market and is a true innovation in our industry," said Zurvita Co-Chief Executive Officer Jay Shafer. "Our 100% increase in sales representatives is clear indication that our product mix and sales focus are well on track. Sales in fiscal 2010 were driven by new revenue streams from advertising sales and commissions relating to energy sales as well as increases in marketing fees and administrative website sales. As we head into our next National Conference in February, 2011, we continue to refine our proven strategies to capitalize on growth in trillion dollar industries such as internet services and commercial energy deregulation with cutting edge tools. We continue to see strong upside for our business going into 2011 and beyond as we provide our consultants leading products and services as well as revolutionary new tools needed to create financial freedom."

Fiscal Year 2010 Results

Revenue for the twelve months ended July 31, 2010, was approximately $6.3 million, an increase of $3.5 million compared to revenue of $2.8 million for the seven months ended July 31, 2009, which represents a short fiscal year period due to a change in the Company's fiscal year end from December 31st to July 31st. The increase in total revenue is primarily a result of new advertising and energy revenue streams.

Administrative websites sales and marketing fees were approximately $2.1 million and $1.9 million for the year ended July 31, 2010, respectively, as compared to approximately $514 thousand and $1.3 million, respectively, for the seven months ended July 31, 2009. The increase in administrative website sales and marketing fees was approximately $1.5 million and $642 thousand, respectively. The increase was a direct result of the growth in the total sales representatives to approximately 5,100 as of July 31, 2010, from approximately 2,600 as of July 31, 2009. The Company was able to attract and retain more representatives as a result of greater product offerings in fiscal year 2010 than in the comparable short fiscal year ending July 31, 2009. Advertising sales related to the Company's Local Search Engine directory and commissions related to energy sales were new revenue streams between the periods that both contributed to an aggregate increase of $1.4 million of new revenue for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2010 as compared to the seven months ended July 31, 2009.

Gross profit for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2010, was approximately $1.7 million as compared to gross profit of approximately $697 thousand for the short fiscal year ended July 31, 2009. The Company realized an increase in gross profit due to less non-traditional compensation measures used to compensate consultants. This was achieved by having a greater product offering with improved margins.

Operating expenses for the twelve months ended July 31, 2010, were approximately $8.8 million, compared to $4.3 million for the seven months ended July 31, 2009. Operating expense to revenue ratio decreased to 1.36% for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2010 from 1.51% for the short seven month fiscal period ended July 31, 2009. Operating loss increased to approximately $7.1 million for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2010, from approximately $3.6 million for the short fiscal year ended July 31, 2009.

The Company reported a net loss of approximately $11.5 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2010, compared to a net loss of approximately $3.5 million, or $0.07 per diluted share for the seven months ended July 31, 2009. The increase in net loss was attributable to non-cash amortization and impairment of the Company's advertising and marketing agreements in the amounts of approximately $657 thousand and $2 million, respectively, as well as non-cash unrealized losses recognized on the Company's marketable securities and outstanding liability warrants in the amounts of $290 thousand and approximately $4.0 million, respectively. Diluted earnings per share were calculated using a weighted average share count of 56.7 million for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2010, compared to 49.3 million for the short fiscal year period ended July 31, 2009.

Financial Condition

As of July 31, 2010, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $289 thousand and working capital of approximately $1.3 million. Net cash used in operating activities for the twelve months ended July 31, 2010, was approximately $3.1 million, down from $3.2 million for the seven months ended July 31, 2009. Total liabilities and stockholders' deficit was $3.4 million as of July 31, 2010 versus total liabilities and stockholders' deficit of $3.5 million for the period ended July 31, 2009.

Business Outlook

"We are excited going into 2011 as we continue to bring together the brightest professionals and the best performing products to help Zurvita independent representatives take their businesses to the next level," said Mark Jarvis, Zurvita Co-Chief Executive Officer. "Zurvita is committed to the growth and success of our consultants and we are focusing our resources on bringing bold, new products to market as we prepare for our next National Conference, the 2011 'Freedom Crusade,' being held February 18th to February 21st in Houston, Texas at the Westin™ Galleria. Going forward, we are confident that we have the right team in place to position Zurvita for significant increases in sales and profits."
