The Company, led by its consultants and employees, made significant progress as shown in its performance against key metrics" said Mr. Charles L. Orr, Immunotec's Chief Executive Officer. "We are grateful for how all our stakeholders are collaborating to support Immunotec's vision to become the company of choice for nutrition and lifestyle improvement".

"The 2013 Financial Results are the strongest since the Company became public in 2007", said Mr. Patrick Montpetit, Immunotec's Chief Financial Officer. "We are pleased with the trend of financial results over the last eight quarters and the potential for the quarters ahead".

2013 and Subsequent Year-End Highlights:


--  Total revenues reached $54.8M, an increase of 11.3% as compared to the
    previous year.

--  Network sales reached $49.6M, an increase of 12.2% as compared to the
    previous year.

--  Selected expenses(1), defined as administrative, marketing and selling,
    and quality and development expenses amounted to $11.9M and measured
    favourably as a percentage of total revenues by improving to 21.7% as
    compared to 24.0% in the previous year.

--  Adjusted EBITDA(1), amounted to $2.9M or 5.2% of total revenues,
    compared to $1.9M or 3.8% of total revenues in the previous year.

--  Net profit of $1.4M, compared to $0.1M in the previous year.

--  Total basic and fully diluted profit per common share was $0.02.

--  The Company repurchased a total of 732,000 shares under the Normal
    Course Issuer Bid ("NCIB") program.

For the year ended 31 October 2013, Immunotec recorded Network sales of $49.6M as compared to $44.2M for the previous year, an increase of 12.2% or $5.4M. This increase was driven by a $4.8M gain over the previous year from the Mexican operations. Other revenue, which includes revenues of products sold to licensees, freight and shipping and educational material purchased by our network of independent consultants, was stable at $5.1M compared to $5.0M in the previous year.

Sales incentives paid to our Network is the Company's most significant expense and consists of commissions, performance bonuses and other promotional incentives provided to qualifying consultants. During the year ended 31 October 2013, the Company incurred $25.8M in Sales incentives paid to our Network for an average of 51.9% of total Network sales compared to 51.1% of total Network sales in the previous year.

Selected expenses(1) in year ended 31 October 2013 amounted to $11.9M as compared to $11.8M for the previous year. As a result of the growth in revenues in 2013 being achieved without a commensurate growth in these expenses, their percentage of total revenues improved to 21.7% as compared to 24.0% in the previous year.

For the year ended 31 October 2013, adjusted EBITDA(1) was $2.9M or 5.2% of revenues, versus $1.9M or 3.8% for the previous year. Adjusted EBITDA has improved 53.0% over the previous year while revenue increased 11.3% reflecting a disciplined approach to expense management.

Net profit for the year ended 31 October 2013 totalled $1.4M, as compared to net profit of $0.1M for the previous year. This year-over-year improvement is primarily the result of revenue growth in Mexico. Total basic and fully diluted profit per common share for the year ended 31 October 2013 was $0.02, compared to $0.00 in the previous year.

During the year, under the Normal Course Issuer Bid (NCIB) program, the Company repurchased and cancelled 732,000 common shares for cash consideration of $0.2M, whereas repurchases made in the corresponding period in the previous year were not significant.

Subsequent to the year ended 31 October 2013, the Company amended the terms and conditions of its existing credit facilities with the lender. An additional tranche of up to approximately $0.25M was added to the existing Committed Reducing Term Facility, bearing interest at 3.63%, and maturing in September 2016. This amount was received in January 2014. A new Committed Reducing Term Facility in the amount of $0.5M, bearing interest at 4.34% and maturing in February 2017 was added. Certain additional collateralization was included in the agreement, including cross-guarantees from Group companies. The entire $0.5M amount was drawn in February 2014.

Pursuant to the Immunotec Stock Option Plan, on 17 February 2014, a director will be granted 25,000 options to acquire up to an aggregate of 25,000 common shares (the "Shares"). The exercise price of such options will be established at the closing trading price on that day. These options will vest over a three-year period, with one-third (1/3) which will vest on each of the first, second and third anniversaries of the date of the grant. Each option is exercisable, once vested, for a period of five years from the date of the grant.

Financial Results for the Fourth Quarter of 2013

In the three-month period ended 31 October 2013, total revenue reached $15.5M, an increase of 13.1% as compared to the same period in the previous year when total revenues were $13.7M. Of this amount, Network sales comprised $14.2M or 91.6% of total sales, as compared to 89.8% in the same period in the previous year when Network sales were $12.3M. The fourth quarter increase is due primarily to sales growth in Mexico and the Western United States.

Selected expenses(1) as a percentage of total revenues were 16.1% in the three- month period ended 31 October 2013, as compared to 21.2% of total revenues for the same quarter in the previous year. This improvement in the fourth quarter is due primarily to improved administrative costs and the recognition of research and development tax credits in Canada.

The net profit in the three-month period ended 31 October 2013 was $0.4M, compared to a loss of $0.1M in the same period in the previous year.
