FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS ANNOUNCES SECOND QUARTER 2009 RESULTS
Investor Conference Call at 11 A.M. EDT August 11, 2009
Norcross, GA – August 11, 2009 – Intelligent Systems Corporation [NYSE Amex: INS; www.intelsys.com] announced today its financial results for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2009.
For the three month period ended June 30, 2009, the company recorded a loss from continuing operations of $177,000 compared to a loss from continuing operations of $1,256,000 in the second quarter of 2008. Revenue was $3,123,000 in the second quarter of 2009, a decline of 24 percent compared to the second quarter of 2008, but an increase of 12 percent from the first quarter of 2009.
The net loss reported for the quarter ended June 30, 2009 was $177,000 ($0.04 per basic and diluted share) compared to net income of $1,543,000 ($0.34 per basic and diluted share) for the second quarter of 2008. These results are not directly comparable because the 2008 results include a one-time gain of $2,884,000 on the sale of a former subsidiary in April of 2008.
For the six month period ended June 30, 2009, the loss from continuing operations was $839,000 on revenue of $5,911,000 as compared to a loss from continuing operations of $2,381,000 on revenue of $8,435,000 in the same period in 2008.
The change in revenue compared to the prior year periods is principally related to the company’s ChemFree subsidiary. In both the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2009, ChemFree reported an increase in total sales of consumable supplies to its growing base of users of the SmartWasher® bioremediating parts washer. However, this increase was offset by a period-to-period decline in the number of parts washer machines sold. This decline in machine sales in the first half of 2009 was anticipated, primarily due to the fact that in the first half of 2008, one of ChemFree’s customers was in the midst of a national program to roll-out machines to its client base which resulted in a sharp spike of machine sales during that period. In the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2009, the company’s CoreCard Software subsidiary reported growth in revenue from professional services and customer support due to an increase in the number of customers supported and projects completed.
As previously announced, the company successfully completed an over-subscribed stockholder rights offering on July 17, 2009, subsequent to the quarter end. The gross cash proceeds of $3,135,000 from the offering are not reflected in the financial statements included with this press release.
The company plans to hold an investor conference call on August 11, 2009 at 11 A.M. EDT. Investors are invited to listen to the call by dialing 1-877-819-3201 and entering conference ID code 24034745.

The company intends to file its Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2009 with the Securities and Exchange Commission today.
