BASKING RIDGE, N.J., May 13, 2011 -- Hooper Holmes (NYSE Amex:HH) today announced financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2011.

Consolidated revenues totaled $40.6 million for the first quarter of 2011, representing a 3% revenue decline from $41.9 million in the first quarter of 2010. The Company recorded a net loss of $0.1 million for the first quarter of 2011, or $0.00 per share, compared to a net loss of $0.7 million, or $0.01 per share, in the first quarter of 2010. The net loss for each of the first quarters of 2011 and 2010 included $0.1 million of restructuring charges.

First quarter 2011 revenues by service line:

-- Portamedic revenue declined 8% to $28.6 million in the first quarter of 2011 compared to $31.1 million in the first quarter of 2010, primarily due to a 6% decline in paramedical exams completed during the quarter, along with a 3% decrease in revenue per exam.

-- Heritage Labs revenue totaled $3.1 million for the first quarter of 2011, an increase of 8% compared to the first quarter of 2010, primarily attributable to an increase in demand for lab testing services, along with increased revenue per specimen tested.

-- Hooper Holmes Services revenue totaled $5.5 million for the first quarter of 2011, basically flat in comparison to the comparable prior year period, as a result of increased demand for outsourced underwriting services, offset by reduced revenue in medical records collection services.

-- Health & Wellness revenue totaled $3.4 million for the first quarter of 2011, a 36% increase from the first quarter of 2010, primarily due to a 38% increase in health screenings completed during the quarter.

Net cash used in operations approximated $1.0 million in the first quarter of 2011, primarily attributable to an increase in accounts receivable during the first quarter as a result of seasonal payment trends. Capital expenditures totaled $0.9 million in the first quarter of 2011. As of March 31, 2011, cash and cash equivalents totaled $19.3 million, with no outstanding borrowings under the Company's credit facility.

"As we have stated, our goal in 2011 is to reduce past revenue declines, and we made progress in the first quarter," said Ransom J. Parker, President and CEO of Hooper Holmes. "In addition, I am pleased with the continued growth of our Health & Wellness business, and by improvements made at Heritage Labs. We remain focused on implementing targeted investments, and on plans to strengthen sales, quality of service and IT programs."

Larry Ferguson, Chairman of the Board of Hooper Holmes, commented: "Actions to improve performance remain our top priority. We believe we are on the right path towards returning the Company to growth and profitability."
