BASKING RIDGE, N.J., Nov. 5, 2010 -- Hooper Holmes (NYSE Amex:HH) today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2010.

Consolidated revenues totaled $40.3 million for the third quarter of 2010, representing an 8% revenue decline from $43.8 million in the third quarter of 2009. The Company recorded a net loss of $1.2 million for the third quarter of 2010, or ($0.02) per share, compared to a net loss of $0.7 million, or ($0.01) per share, for the third quarter of 2009. The net loss for the third quarter of 2010 includes restructuring charges of $0.7 million, primarily attributable to severance related to the resignation of the Company's former CEO. The net loss for the third quarter of 2009 includes $0.3 million of restructuring and other charges.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2010, consolidated revenues were $123.0 million compared to $137.4 million in the comparable period of 2009. The Company's net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 totaled $0.7 million, or $(0.01) per share, compared to a net loss of $3.0 million, or $(0.04) per share in 2009. The results for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 include a $1.6 million reduction in a previously established reserve for interest and penalties pertaining to unclaimed property. In addition, the results for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 and 2009 include a non-cash charge of $0.6 million and $2.1 million, respectively, attributable to increased depreciation expense resulting from a reduction in the estimated useful life of the Company's current IT system. The 2010 and 2009 results also include restructuring and other charges totaling $0.9 million and $1.1 million, respectively.

Third quarter 2010 revenues by service line:

Portamedic revenue declined 13% to $28.1 million in the third quarter of 2010 compared to $32.4 million in the third quarter of 2009, primarily due to a 14% decline in paramedical exams completed during the quarter, partially offset by a 0.3% increase in revenue per exam. Heritage Labs revenue totaled $2.8 million for the third quarter of 2010, a decrease of 4% compared to the third quarter of 2009, primarily attributable to reduced demand for lab testing services and specimen collection kits. Hooper Holmes Services revenue totaled $5.7 million for the third quarter of 2010, a 4% decline from $5.9 million in the third quarter of 2009, primarily due to reduced demand for tele-interviewing services. Health & Wellness revenue totaled $3.7 million for the third quarter of 2010, a 48% increase from revenue in the comparable third quarter of 2009.

Net cash provided by operations approximated $0.1 million in the third quarter of 2010. Capital expenditures totaled $1.3 million in the third quarter. As of September 30, 2010, cash and cash equivalents totaled $18.2 million, with no borrowings under the Company's credit facility.

"The third quarter is historically our slowest because less life insurance is sold in the summer and fewer health screenings are completed. Our overall revenue decline slowed to 8% in the third quarter from 12% in the second quarter, which is a move in the right direction," said Ransom J. Parker, President and CEO of Hooper Holmes. "However, we are keenly aware that our success will depend upon driving sales, and investing to improve operations."
