FAIRFIELD, Conn., Feb. 22, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Competitive Technologies, Inc. (OTCQX:CTTC) today announced that it has changed to calendar year financial reporting and has issued the financial report for the transitional period November and December 2010. This transitional report reflects that the Company has (a) negotiated an exit from the 11,000 square foot office space including paying all back rents, (b) moved the headquarters office to a new 2,700 square foot location in Fairfield, CT, (c) brought current all outstanding payables, (d) reviewed for collection or write-off all receivables, (e) raised additional capital, and (f) completed a review and replacement of International distribution contracts. These actions provide the Company a lower cost base for 2011 operations.

The Company issued a $750,000 convertible preferred stock to replenish the Company's operating cash which had been drawn down by the $750,000 cash collateral previously posted in a prejudgment remedy action brought by a former CEO. Because of the convertible feature of this preferred stock, it is treated in the financial statements as a derivative liability under GAAP reporting.

The results for the two-month transitional period show total expenses of $1.4 million, including bad debt expenses of $0.4 million and restructuring charges of $0.3 million, and an accrued preferred stock dividend of $0.1 million. Revenue for the period was $0.1 million and the net loss for shareholders of the common stock was $1.4 million. The expenses for the three-month period ending January 31, 2010 were $1.0 million and revenue was $0.3 million producing a net loss of $0.7 million.

"We believe the active sales program and lower expenses will produce profitability throughout 2011. At the same time the restructuring changes were being made, the sales and marketing teams were successful in establishing a series of Calmare® medical device sales in the US for the first quarter 2011. Also, new international customers have purchased ten devices in the first quarter of 2011. Progress is being made toward obtaining insurance reimbursement codes. The sales activity for the military programs has been accelerated into seven military locations. This Company is moving forward with a great Calmare® medical device from Professor Marineo, manufactured by GEOMC and a dedicated staff of employees, consultants and the sales group," said Johnnie D. Johnson, CEO.
