“We are pleased to report another profitable quarter with increased revenue over the prior year, taking us to an all-time high level,” said Douglass Simpson, Corgenix President and CEO. “The Company concluded the first fiscal quarter with a strong balance sheet and meaningful growth trends in our AspirinWorks business and Contract Manufacturing sectors, all positive indicators of another solid year for the Company.”
Mr. Simpson went on to say, “First quarter results would have been even more favorable if not for the planned increase in operating expenses related to advancing our proprietary AtherOx® oxidized LDL technology. While earnings were impacted, we have enhanced our competitive strengths, enabling us to capitalize on opportunities to profitably expand our market presence in cardiovascular disease testing.”
