ARLINGTON, Va., Aug. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Homeland Security Capital Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: HOMS), a company focused on acquiring, developing and consolidating homeland security-related businesses, today announced its financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2007 . During the quarter, Homeland Security announced the sale of its subsidiary Security Holding Corp, which is expected to close in late August. Financial results measure the operational performance of continuing operations unless otherwise noted.

The company reported revenue of $3.9 million for the second quarter of 2007, up approximately 90% from $2.05 million a year ago. Revenue from continuing operations in the first six months was $6.3 million, up 129% from $2.7 million for the comparable period in 2006. The increase in revenue for the quarter and six months is attributed to the growth of its Nexus subsidiary and the contributions from Polimatrix.

Homeland Security reported a net operating loss of $0.5 million from continuing operations for the three months ended June 30, 2007 . Net operating loss excludes the following items associated with the company's debenture financing: interest expense, the amortization of debt discount and offering costs, and the effect of the change of its derivative liability. The company also recorded a $1.4 million loss from the discontinued operations of Security Holding Corp.

The company measures its operating results by subsidiary. The following table reflects these results from continuing operations, for the second quarter and six months, on a segment basis.

C. Thomas McMillen, Homeland Security Capital chairman and CEO, said, "We continue to focus efforts on building value for our shareholders. The sale of Security Holding Corp resulted in approximately 22.5% return on our investment a year ago. Nexus revenues are up approximately 54.2% from the $2.4 million of last quarter, and I am pleased with its backlog growth. I am also pleased with Polimatrix's initial efforts in entering the nuclear and radiological detection marketplace. As always, we continue to follow our business plan to acquire companies that fit our model. To that end, we are in active discussion with other companies and continue to evaluate them as possible acquisition targets."
