OCEANSIDE, New York. –March 25, 2010
– American Medical Alert Corp. (NASDAQ: AMAC) a provider of healthcare communication services and advanced telehealth monitoring technologies, today announced operating results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2009.

Revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2009, consisting primarily of monthly recurring revenues (MRR), increased 2% to $9,920,593 as compared to $9,740,667 for the same period in 2008. Net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2009 increased 30% to $763,733 or $.08 per diluted share as compared to $589,311 or $.06 per diluted share for the same period in 2008.  This 30% growth rate excludes a one time non operating charge of $521,627 incurred in 2008, and thereby more accurately reflects the growth from an operational perspective.
 
Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2009 increased 2% to $39,456,936, as compared to $38,586,820 for the same period in 2008.  Net income increased 47% to $2,889,513 or $0.30 per diluted share as compared to $1,961,228 or $0.20 per diluted share for the previous year. As discussed above, this 47% growth rate excludes a one time non operating charge of $521,627 in 2008.  Without this exclusion, the growth in net income would be approximately 101%.
 
The Company had projected that gross revenues, consisting primarily of monthly recurring revenue (MRR), would increase by 3.5% to approximately $39,935,000.  The Company realized a shortfall of approximately 1% which was primarily the result of a delay in the commercial release of MedSmart, AMAC’s medication management system as well as reduced business generated from its clinical trial business. The MedSmart management and event report system is now fully commercialized and being sold.  With respect to the clinical trials business, the Company has executed certain agreements with new customers for work to be performed in 2010 and believes this will facilitate improved results within this business component.

The Company had projected net income would increase by 46% to $2,860,000 for the year ending December 31, 2009. The Company exceeded its earnings guidance due to the Company’s ability to operate at higher operating margins than anticipated, despite realizing a revenue shortfall.
