FAIRFIELD, Conn., Nov. 15, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Competitive Technologies, Inc. (OTCQX:CTTC) today announced that the Company's Board of Directors has approved a fiscal year-end change from July 31 to December 31. The Company noted that the change is intended to align its fiscal periods with the calendar year.

"This change will make comparisons with other investments easier for our shareholders and our larger customers and suppliers," said Johnnie D. Johnson, CTTC's Chief Executive Officer. "The July 31 fiscal year was a hold-over from the Company's early years of closer alignment with universities and their academic calendars.

"More importantly, over the past two months the Board of Directors and management have identified over $1.5 million of administrative expenses that have been or are being eliminated," Mr. Johnson continued. "This will lower our cost of doing business and lead to profitability much more quickly."
