 Track Data Reports Third Quarter Results
   Tuesday, November 14, 2006 8:05:23 AM ET

BROOKLYN, New York, Nov 14, 2006 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Track Data Corporation (TRAC ) today announced results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2006.

Revenues for the third quarter ended September 30, 2006 were $10,323,000 compared to $8,798,000 for the same period in 2005, an increase of 17%. Net income for the third quarter of 2006 was $224,000, or $.03 per share, compared to a net loss of $(274,000), or $(.03) per share, in 2005. The increased revenues were principally attributable to Track ECN. However, these increased revenues are realized with very little profit margin. Until the end of October 2006, Track ECN conducted its business on the Nasdaq trading platform. Track ECN has since moved its business to the Alternative Display Facility (ADF) and the National Stock Exchange (NSX). Management cannot determine how these moves will affect revenues in the long-term, but it has resulted in significant short term declines in revenue. The Company continues to experience declines in revenues from its market data services to the professional market. Management expects this trend to continue through 2006, negatively impacting revenues and profits.

Revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2006 were $32,842,000 compared to $27,385,000 for the same period in 2005, an increase of 20%. Net income for the 2006 period was $1,839,000, or $.22 per share, compared to a net loss of $(293,000), or $(.03) per share, in 2005. The increased revenues were principally attributable to Track ECN. The 2005 period includes after-tax income of $369,000 from telecommunications credits and the reversal of a judgment on sales taxes assessed. The 2006 and 2005 periods include after-tax gains of $1,066,000 and $637,000, respectively, from the sale of Innodata and Edgar online common stock.
