Royalty revenue increased by $901,000 in the quarter ended June 30, 2008 to $5.8 million from $4.9 million in the comparable 2007 period, partially due to the re-franchising of Company-owned training centers. Revenue from Company-owned training centers declined to $3.5 million in the quarter ended June 30, 2008 from $7.3 million in the comparable period of 2007, as a result of the disposal and re-franchising of four Company-owned training centers during 2007.

Current Outlook

Mark A. Miller, President and Chief Executive Officer of New Horizons, stated, "We are pleased with the continued strong results for the second quarter and the first half of 2008, driven by growth in both our domestic and international markets."

Mr. Miller continued, "During the quarter, we continued to execute on our growth strategy by becoming a Cisco Learning Solutions Partner in the United States and Canada and by making arrangements for our centers around the world to also participate in our Cisco relationship. Cisco Learning Solutions Partners (CLSP) and their sponsored organizations are the only companies that may provide authorized Cisco training. We also saw increased franchising activity as a result of a revitalized franchising program that was developed as part of our strategy."

"We appreciate the efforts of our employees, the partnership of our franchise owners and their staffs and the support of our industry partners in making our results possible."
