For the six month period ended June 30, 2010, net revenue was $8,305,000, an increase of 40 percent over the comparable period in 2009. The company's ChemFree subsidiary reported strong sales of both SmartWasher┬« machines and consumable supplies in both domestic and international markets. In addition, the company's CoreCard Software subsidiary continued to expand its product capabilities and customer base and reported an increase in license and service revenue in both the second quarter and year-to-date periods due to a growing number of customers.

J. Leland Strange, president and chief executive officer of the company, commented, "ChemFree continues to produce excellent results with good sales momentum and makes a strong profit contribution to our consolidated results.  In the first half of 2010, CoreCard completed its first international implementation and first significant customer conversion from a national processor.  Software implementations may have significant activity over several quarters but license revenue is generally not recognized until completion of a project. Even though we reported a profit for the second consecutive quarter, it is not necessarily indicative of a trend due in part to the way we recognize revenue on project completions. Our consolidated financial results are not likely to be smooth or predictable on a quarterly basis until CoreCard has a larger base of recurring revenue."
