Thomas K. Johnston, Chief Executive Officer of SearchPath HCS, Inc., commented, "We are very pleased to report positive net income and tremendous revenue growth in every category during the first quarter. We have now shifted our primary focus back to aggressively growing our SPI Franchise business whereas last quarter we focused our resources on providing the highest quality training and support for our existing franchises because such a strategy provided the best ROI during the recent significant economic downturn. These results reaffirm our projections of accelerating growth for fiscal 2011 and beyond as industry conditions improve and the Company continues to reduce our operating expenses even in the wake of significant revenue growth."

"In addition to pursuing significant international expansion of our SearchPath International franchises, SearchPath is beginning to explore a variety of opportunities that will enhance the capabilities of our Human Capital Solutions platform and add value to the services we currently provide to our existing clients, candidates and franchisees," continued Johnston.
