MINOT, N.D., March 28, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capital Financial Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB:CPFH), a financial services company, reports revenues for the fourth quarter of 2010 of $4,986,360, a 9% increase from revenues of $4,584,615 for the fourth quarter of 2009. Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2010 were $19,391,807, an 8% increase from revenues of $17,902,774 for the year ended December 31, 2009.

The Company reported a net loss of $778,792, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2010, compared to a net loss of $62,560, or $0.01 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2009.

As a result of ongoing volatility in the financial industry and a reduction in the calculated fair market value of its wholly owned subsidiary, Capital Financial Services, Inc., the Company performed an interim goodwill impairment test for the quarter ended December 31, 2010. The Company determined that it would incur a goodwill impairment charge for the fourth quarter of the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010 of $753,518 in the Broker-Dealer segment. The fair value of the reporting unit was estimated by using an independent third-party appraisal.

The decrease in earnings was due primarily to the goodwill impairment loss explained in the paragraph above.
