IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - January 15, 2013) - Biomerica, Inc. (OTCBB: BMRA) today reported net sales of $1,883,771 for the three months ended November 30, 2012, compared to $1,616,606 for the same period in the previous year, an increase of $267,165, or 16.5%. Net sales were $3,585,719 for the first six months of fiscal 2013 compared to $3,024,271 for the first six months in fiscal 2012, an increase of $561,448 or 18.6%.

Biomerica announced net income for the three months ended November 30, 2012, of $236,919 or $0.03 per share versus a net income of $195,092 or $0.03 per share in the previous fiscal year during the same quarter.

"Our net income this quarter was lower due to a onetime restructuring in our Mexico facility which should make us more efficient in the future as well as higher R&D costs in the quarter and 6 month period," stated Zackary Irani, Biomerica CEO. "We are working diligently to expand our distribution and product offering and we are excited about our prospects for both these areas."
