First Quarter 2008 Results by Division

Health Information Division (HID)

The Company's Health Information Division reported revenues of $52.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2008 compared to $54.5 million in the prior year period.

-- Portamedic revenues decreased approximately 6.1% to $36.5 million,

compared to $38.9 million in the first quarter of 2007. This decrease

is the result of a reduction in paramedical exams of approximately 11%

in comparison to the corresponding period of 2007, partially offset by

higher average revenue per exam of 6% due to increased pricing.

-- Infolink revenues were $6.6 million, down 4.2% from $6.9 million in the

first quarter of 2007, primarily due to a decrease in the number of

attending physician statement (APS) orders received from customers

during the quarter.

-- Heritage Labs revenues remained flat at $4.5 million for the three

month periods ended March 31, 2008 and 2007.

-- Health & Wellness revenues were $1.9 million, up significantly compared

to $0.4 million in the first quarter of 2007. This increase is a

result of the growth in new customers since the division's inception in

early 2007.

-- Underwriting Solutions revenues decreased 23.0% to $2.9 million

compared to $3.8 million in the first quarter of 2007. The decrease is

due to the loss in volume from one major customer, partially offset by

revenue from new clients.

Claims Evaluation Division (CED)

The CED reported first quarter revenues of $6.7 million, a decrease of 15.0% compared to $7.9 million in the first quarter of 2007. The decrease was primarily the result of a continued contraction in the number of independent medical exams ordered by our customers.

Roy H. Bubbs, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hooper Holmes, commented, "Our performance in the first quarter reflects improved gross margins and reduced SG&A as a result of the financial discipline we continue to drive throughout the organization. Over the course of 2008, we will continue our efforts to strengthen Portamedic, leverage the synergies among our businesses, and look forward to introducing new market offerings that we believe will play an integral part in our future success. We have identified numerous opportunities for improving our Company and we are working diligently toward addressing them."
