(OTCBB: GNLK, "the Company," or "GeneLink"), a leading consumer genomics biotech company, today reported financial results for the quarter ended June 30th, 2011. Financial Highlights for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and June 30, 2010:
Gross profit margin improved to 65.1% from 64.3% in the prior year.

Bernard L. Kasten, M.D., GeneLink's Chairman and CEO stated, "In the first half of 2011, GeneLink refocused its business strategy on expanding our offerings and revenues through strategic business relationships. These efforts have initially resulted in previously-announced transactions involving a direct-response marketing agreement in conjunction with a team led by Mr. Robert Trussell, the founder of Tempur-Pedic Inc., and the execution of a letter of intent with Capsalus Corp.(OTCBB: WELL) to sell the licensing rights and assets of our GeneWize Life Sciences, Inc. direct-selling subsidiary. We are working proactively to support the anticipated increased sales volume from these and additional potential relationships in the coming months. The positive reactions to our business plan and achievements have enabled GeneLink to raise $2,843,500 since December 30, 2010 to capitalize the company for this anticipated growth. We believe that we have laid a foundation that builds on GeneLink's strong scientific and intellectual property foundations and innovative skincare and nutrition products, positioning it for improved financial results in the fourth quarter of 2011 and beyond."
