Versus Technology, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: VSTI) ("Versus" or the "Company") announced revenues of $1,797,000 for its third fiscal quarter ended July 31, 2010, a 55.5% increase compared to revenues of $1,155,000 for the same quarter of the prior year. Revenues for the nine months ended July 31, 2010 were $6,103,000, compared to $3,905,000 for the nine months ended July 31, 2009, a 56.3% increase.

This represents the fourth consecutive quarter of growth over the same quarter of the prior year which is attributable to growth in the Company's healthcare solutions and service business. Versus' quarterly revenues can vary significantly depending upon the timing of delivery of major customer projects. Accordingly, the revenues reported in any one quarter are not necessarily indicative of what full year results will be.

Gross profits as a percentage of revenues were 70.3% for the current year's third quarter compared to 69.4% for the same quarter of the prior year. Fiscal 2010 year-to-date gross profit as a percentage of revenues is 72.3% compared to 70.6% year-to-date in fiscal 2009.

Operating expenses, other than cost of revenues, increased 5.4% and 13.5% for the current year's third quarter and fiscal year-to-date, respectively, compared to the same period of the prior year. The increase in operating expenses is due to increased research and development expenses, and related one-time professional fees.

Versus reported its fourth consecutive profitable quarter, posting net income of $38,000 for the third quarter of fiscal 2010 compared to a net loss of $360,000 for the same quarter of the prior year. The Company reported net income of $450,000 for the nine months ended July 31, 2010, compared to a net loss of $731,000 for the nine months ended July 31, 2009.
