VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/27/14 -- Pyng Medical Corp. (TSX VENTURE:PYT) today announced financial and operating results for the three and six months ended March 31, 2014. All amounts are in Canadian dollars unless stated otherwise.
The Company reported total sales of $1,466,392 for the three months ended March 31, 2014, up 48% compared with $992,342 for the comparative quarter last year. The sales increase was mainly due to the increased demand for FAST1 products from the U.S. military market compared to the prior year. The Company's continued efforts to expand into new market segments and distribution channels along with the launch of new products also contributed to the sales increase this year. The gross margin also increased to $665,612 from $412,432 reported a year ago as a result of higher sales. The gross margin as a percentage of sales increased from 42% to 45%, attributed to various reasons including the reduction of landed costs this year as a result of the reduction in backorders. Total expenses went up 8% to $860,482 from $796,015 for the first quarter of last year due to the higher sales and marketing expenses, amortization of intangible assets, interest expense and foreign exchange loss.
The net loss reduced 49% to $194,870 for this quarter, equal to loss of $0.01 per share, compared to a net loss of $383,583 or loss of $0.02 per share one year earlier. Earnings before interest, depreciation, amortization and taxes ("EBITDA") from continuing operations were $21,546, an increase of $244,246 from negative $222,700 reported for the second quarter of fiscal 2013.
For the six months period, the total sales were $3,003,295, up 48% from $2,035,650 reported for the comparative period last year. As a result, the net loss reduced from $643,626 a year ago to $275,453 for the first half of this year. The improvement was also driven by the reduction of research and product development expenses after the FASTR project was completed in fiscal 2013, partially offset by the expenses increase in several categories, including interest, amortization, foreign exchange loss and sales and marketing.
As at March 31, 2014, the Company had a cash balance of $252,114, a decrease of $64,413 compared with the balance of $316,527 as at September 30, 2013. During the quarter ended March 31, 2014, the Company paid back principal of $33,498 on the promissory note signed in November 2013 and the working capital deficiency decreased to $266,994 as at the quarter end from $947,852 as at September 30, 2013.
The Company continues to pursue debt and/or equity financing to help fund its working capital needs and to refinance convertible debentures maturing on August 10, 2014. There can be no assurance that these initiatives will be successful.
Full audited financial results for fiscal year ended September 30, 2013 are available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
