FAIRFIELD, Conn., Dec. 15, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Competitive Technologies, Inc. (OTCQX:CTTC) today announced that the Company continues to transition to a profitable 2011. Part of the transition process includes staff reductions and associated costs, which are part of the quarterly results for the quarter ended October 31, 2010. The expenses for the period were $1.2 million compared to $0.9 million in the prior year period. Revenue for the quarter ended October 31, 2010 was $0.1 million compared to $0.1 million for the prior year. The loss for the current period is $1.1 million compared to $0.8 million for the prior year period.

"The transition period, from September 2010 through December 2010, involves a major cost cutting initiative," said Johnnie D. Johnson, CTTC's Chief Executive Officer. "Following a number of actions, including severance payments for staff reductions, asset write offs, and extricating the Company from a burdensome long-term office lease that dates back to 2006, there will be cost increases in the transition period. However, the Company will be in a much better financial position to begin its new fiscal year on January 1, 2011." 

"With a new lower operating base for the Company and a renewed focus on marketing and sales of our Calmare® pain therapy medical device, we are excited about the Company's prospects for 2011 and beyond," said Aris Despo, CTTC's Executive Vice President for Business Development. "Our ongoing marketing focus and product positioning in the US has produced increased Calmare® evaluations from medical facilities in the private and government healthcare sectors during Q1 2011. Additionally, we are adding certified Calmare® trainers to further support this increased demand. Internationally, we are positioned to add distributors and to help our productive distributors to improve sales in their territories. We are convinced that these strategies, as well as renewed programs to acquire compatible technologies or products, will enhance our offerings and develop additional revenue streams."
