deltathree Reports First Quarter 2011 GAAP Net Income and Adjusted EBITDA Profitability

NEW YORK, May 16, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- deltathree, Inc. (OTCQB:DDDC), a global provider of video and voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephony services, products, hosted solutions and infrastructures for service providers, resellers and direct consumers, today announced financial results for the first quarter 2011 ended March 31, 2011.

Mr. Effi Baruch, Chief Executive Officer, President and Senior Vice President of Operations and Technology of deltathree, stated, "deltathree's first quarter results reflect material progress towards our strategic and financial objectives, highlighted by a 23% year-over-year improvement in revenue and positive GAAP net income and adjusted EBITDA profitability for the quarter. Overall, our focus on driving higher margin revenue streams through our digital voice and video service provider solutions continues to gain traction. Improved sales from the year ago period, together with the positive impact of a material one-time item and our strict focus on operational cost efficiencies, combined to drive the significant improvement in our bottom line results."

"During the quarter we continued to secure additional international service provider agreements, including a contract for the development and launch of ACN Korea's digital phone and video phone offering. This contract win marks deltathree's continued expansion into the international market for next generation video phone services. deltathree's joip mobile phone application also made excellent progress during the quarter, adding users and creating opportunities for additional white label offerings among international service provider clients. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, we signed an agreement with ACN Europe for deltathree's mobile phone application through which ACN Europe will promote deltathree's joip mobile phone application under the ACN Mobile World brand through tens of thousands of ACN Europe's independent sales representatives. Overall, we have had many significant achievements to kick off 2011. We believe our competitive position continues to strengthen as we innovate and deploy next generation communications solutions, and we stand optimistic on the outlook for 2011 amid rising demand for our expanded range of global VoIP-based voice as well as video solutions," concluded Mr. Baruch.

For the first quarter of 2011, deltathree reported total revenues of $3.8 million, an increase of 23% compared with $3.1 million reported for the first quarter of 2010. deltathree's revenue declined sequentially primarily due to a slowdown in reseller revenues concentrated in the Middle East region during the first quarter of 2011.

First quarter 2011 net income included the reversal of an accrual of $706,000 for expenses expected to arise from the Company's litigation with Centre One.

To date the Company has drawn down $1,000,000 and has $600,000 in remaining funds available.

Adjusted EBITDA Financial Disclosure

Investors are cautioned that adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of liquidity or financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). In addition, it should not be construed as an alternative to any other measures of performance determined in accordance with GAAP, or as an indicator of the company's operating performance, liquidity or cash flows generated by operating, investing and financing activities, as there may be significant factors or trends that it fails to address. Adjusted EBITDA financial information is presented because deltathree believes that it is helpful to some investors as one measure of the company's operations. deltathree cautions investors that non-GAAP financial information such as adjusted EBITDA, by its nature, departs from traditional accounting conventions; accordingly, its use can make it difficult to compare deltathree's results with the results from other reporting periods and with the results of other companies.
