CTI GROUP REPORTS FIRST QUARTER 2013 RESULTS
CTI Group (Holdings) Inc. (OTCQB:CTIG), an international provider of electronic invoice processing and management (“EIM”) and call accounting management and recording (“CAMRA”) applications, reported results for the three months ended March 31, 2013. Revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2013 decreased to $3,885,326 as compared to revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2012 of $4,367,837. The Company reported a net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2013 of ($552,391), or ($0.02) per share, as compared to net income for the three months ended March 31, 2012 of $113,530, or $0.00 per share. The decrease in revenues was related primarily to a decrease from the Company’s EIM segment due to less processing revenue and a decrease in professional service revenue recognized for the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2012. The net loss in 2013 as compared to net income in 2012 was primarily attributable to decreased revenues in 2013.

We remain optimistic that we will be successful in winning these new opportunities to better position CTI Group to return to continued profitability and growth.”
