CARLSBAD, Ca. - Xenonics Holdings, Inc. (AMEX: XNN) announced today that revenue for the fourth quarter ended September 30, 2009 increased 91% to $2,090,000 compared to $1,094,000 for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008.

Gross profit increased 178% to $1,003,000 compared to $361,000 a year earlier, and operating expenses decreased 33% to $1,028,000 compared to $1,524,000. The net loss for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009 narrowed to $42,000, or $0.00 per share, compared to a net loss of $1,142,000, or $0.06 per share, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008.

"In July 2009 we implemented a new operating model built around an exclusive U.S. distribution agreement with Aardvark Tactical, Inc. (ATI) for Xenonics' NightHunter high-intensity illumination systems and its SuperVision high-definition night vision devices, as well as expanded programs for international distribution. As anticipated, this allowed us to sharply and quickly reduce operating costs even as we prepared to significantly expand our business with Aardvark," said Chairman Alan Magerman.

For the twelve months ended September 30, 2009, revenue decreased to $7,378,000 compared to revenue of $10,168,000 for fiscal 2008. The net loss for fiscal 2009 was $1,839,000, or $0.09 per share. This compares to a net loss for fiscal 2008 of $1,391,000, or $0.07 per share.
