"This has been a transformational year for VirtualScopics," stated Jeff Markin, president and chief executive officer of VirtualScopics. "We have successfully progressed the company from a consumer of cash to a generator of cash. I am especially pleased that we have accomplished this by building a strong operational foundation with a talented and committed team that is focused on our customers and returning value to our stockholders."

"The second quarter of 2009 was the strongest financial quarter of the company's history," said Molly Henderson, chief business and financial officer of VirtualScopics, Inc. She continued, "On all significant comparative financial metrics, we demonstrated solid results. Our year to date Adjusted EBITDA improved over $1,100,000 compared to the same period last year. This significant improvement captures the essence of our progress over the past twelve months as well as the strength of our business." She concluded, "We are very pleased with our financial results for the first half of 2009 and remain optimistic on our outlook for 2009."

Jeff Markin and Molly Henderson will provide a business update and discuss these results during a conference call on Thursday, August 13, 2009 at 11:00 a.m. EDT. Interested participants should call 888-352-6795 when calling within the United States or 719-325-2192 when calling internationally. The call can also be accessed at and will be available for 30 days after the call.

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings less interest, taxes (if any), depreciation and amortization as further adjusted to exclude stock compensation expense and the loss on derivative instrument (mark to market adjustment for warrants). The Company provides Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure to GAAP regarding the Company's operational performance. This financial measure excludes the impact of certain items and, therefore, has not been calculated in accordance with GAAP. The Company's method of calculating Adjusted EBITDA, however, may differ from methods used by other companies, and, as a result, Adjusted EBITDA measures disclosed herein may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies. The Company continues to provide information in accordance with GAAP, however, with the adoption of EITF 07-05 and the non-cash variable nature of stock compensation expense and their very substantial impact on the overall reported net losses, the Company believes it is also helpful for investors to receive additional information relating more specifically to the Company's operating results. Accordingly, the Company has presented Adjusted EBITDA which excludes the non-cash effects of EITF 07-05 and FAS 123R on its financial results. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA (a) to evaluate the Company's financial performance, (b) to set internal spending budgets, and (c) to measure operational profitability. In addition, investors have requested these non-GAAP financial measures as a means of providing consistent and comparable information with past reports of financial results. Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, the Company has provided a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, net loss, below.
