Arrhythmia Research Technology, Inc. Announces Third Quarter Results

Company to Focus on Manufacturing Customer Base

FITCHBURG, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/21/12 -- Arrhythmia Research Technology, Inc. (the "Company") (NYSE MKT: HRT) and its subsidiaries reported total revenue of $4,840,000 and net loss of $3,469,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2012 compared to total revenue of $6,757,000 and net loss of $74,000 for the same quarter of 2011. Net loss per share for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was $1.24 per share compared to $0.03 loss per share for the same period in 2011.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, total revenue was $15,881,000 and net loss was $4,885,000 as compared to total revenue of $18,929,000 and net loss of $301,000 for the same period in 2011. Net loss per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $1.75 as compared to loss per share of $0.11 for the same period in 2011.

Michael Gunter, the Company's Interim CEO, commented "The shortfall in revenue in the quarter was primarily attributable to lower silver surcharge billed and lower customer orders in sensors and defense compared to the same period in the prior year. European sales were down in large part due to a customer being acquired and lower orders taking place in the third quarter as the companies integrated operations and inventories. We are seeing orders increase in the fourth quarter and expect orders from this customer to return to historical levels in 2013.

During the third quarter, the Company decided to shut down the operations of the WirelessDx subsidiaries. We have currently ended all operations of WirelessDx and are on track to complete the liquidation of its assets by year end. Expenses and charges related to this shutdown and liquidation of assets are estimated to be $2,350,000. Additionally, as a result of impairment testing conducted during the quarter, the Company recorded an estimated preliminary impairment charge to Goodwill related to continuing operations of $1,479,727. These items negatively impacted results for the quarter.

Management intends to refocus on the vertically integrated diversified manufacturing capabilities of the Company and on growth opportunities with new and existing customers, and returning to profitability in 2013."
