ProPhase Labs, Inc.
, www.ProPhaseLabs.com) today reported its net sales were $4.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015, as compared to net sales of $5.1 for the three months ended September 30, 2014. The Company realized net income for the three months ended September 30, 2015 of $602,000, or $0.04 per share, compared to a net loss of $3.2 million, or ($0.18) per share, for the three months ended September 30, 2014.
The Company’s sales are principa lly derived from its over-the-counter (“OTC”) health care and cold remedy products. As a consequence, a significant portion of our business is highly seasonal, which causes significant variations in operating results from quarter to quarter.
Results for the third quarter of 2015 compared to the third quarter of 2014 principally reflect the net effect of (i) a decrease in net sales of $740,000, (ii) a decrease in administration costs of $695,000 due principally to a decrease in professional and legal costs related to certain, now resolved, litigation matters, (iii) a decrease in sales and marketing expenses of $176,000, (iv) a decrease in research and development expenditures of $161,000 and (v) non-recurring impairment charge to operations of $3.6 million during the third quarter of 2014.
The Company generated net sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 of $12.4 million, as compared to $13.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014. The Company incurred a net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 of $2.3 million, or ($0.14) per share, compared to a net loss of $7.2 million, or ($0.42) per share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2014.
The financial results for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 as compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2014 reflect the net effect of (i) a decrease in net sales of $657,000, (ii) a decrease in administration costs of $1.4 million due principally to a decrease in professional and legal costs related to certain, now resolved, litigation matters, (iii) a decrease in sales and marketing expenses of $503,000 as a consequence of the fluctuation from period to period of the timing and scope of our marketing initiatives, (iv) a decrease in research and development expenditures of $232,000, and (v) non-recurring impairment charge to operations of $3.6 million during the third quarter of 2014.
Ted Karkus, the CEO of the Company, stated, “Our product development efforts over the past several years have been largely focused on successfully leveraging the Cold-EEZE
brand. To this end, three new product line extensions are now available on retail shelves for the fourth quarter of 2015: (i) Cold-EEZE
Multi-Symptom Relief for Cold and Flu lozenges, (ii) Cold-EEZE
Daytime and Nighttime Multi-Symptom Relief in liquid forms for each of adults and children, and (iii) Cold-EEZE
Natural Allergy Relief
caplets for indoor and outdoor allergies. Our current plan is to introduce two additional Cold-EEZE
branded products to the trade in February of 2016.”
Mr. Karkus continued, “In addition to the continued development and commercialization of new Cold-EEZE
branded products, we are also continuing the development of the new TK Supplements line of products in the dietary supplement category. Our new product line is initially comprised of three men’s health products for: (i) sexual health, (ii) daily energy booster plus testosterone support and (iii) prostate and urinary health. I am pleased to announce that the pre-commercialization steps for all three products, including formulation, stabilization, mass production and packaging are near completion. Additionally, we anticipate that our first product in this category for sexual health will be introduced to the marketplace through Direct Response TV within the next 1-2 months.”
Mr. Karkus added, “While we are certainly optimistic, no assurance can be made that our new TK Supplements product efforts will be successful. Furthermore, over time we may need to raise additional funds through debt financing or equity financing to support all of these strategic initiatives and to provide additional working capital.”
