     Richard A. Parlontieri, President/CEO of Speedemissions stated:
 
     "We are encouraged by the increase in our same store net operating
 income despite lower same store sales. As expected, our investment in new
 stores in Houston, Dallas and St. Louis added additional revenue and
 operating expenses which contributed to the loss in the quarter and six
 months. We may continue to operate at a loss and our cash on hand may
 decrease as a result of the early operating losses at the new stores until
 they achieve the test volume necessary to break even. We are working
 extremely hard with our new store projects and look to improve on our
 results going forward."
