Speedemissions, Inc. Eliminates Non-Performing Stores, Focuses on Return to Profitability

ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/20/14 -- Speedemissions, Inc. (OTCQB: SPMI), a leading vehicle emissions testing and safety inspections company operating stores in the Atlanta, St. Louis and Salt Lake City markets and developer of CARbonga-SRI, the innovative automobile safety/recall iPhone app, which powers the Company's BuyCARSafety.com "ADVISR" (www.BuyCarSafety.com), today announced that it has sold its remaining Houston, Texas emission/safety inspection stores to ZAK's & HF Enterprises, LLC, a Texas based limited liability corporation.

This transaction, coupled with the closing of four non-performing stores in Atlanta and St. Louis in the past 60 days as leases have expired, brings to thirty-three the number of stores the Company now owns and operates.

Rich Parlontieri, President and CEO of Speedemissions, stated, "Over the past couple of years the Texas market has been a most challenging one for us and has contributed significantly to the Company's operating losses. Eliminating those locations detrimental to our cash flow, strengthening our retail stores that are profitable, and a commitment to the development of progressive product offerings like the ADVISR, our vehicle recall and technical service bulletin report, are initiatives we believe can make Speedemissions profitable once again."
