Biomerica (BMRA) Announces Year End Results


8/30/2011 9:18:26 AM

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - August 30, 2011) - Biomerica, Inc. (OTCBB: BMRA), a global provider of advanced diagnostic products for the early detection of medical conditions, today reported net income of $157,447, or $0.02 per share, for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2011, compared to net loss of $331,455, or $0.05 per share, in fiscal 2011. Net cash flows provided by operating activities was $328,803 for fiscal 2011 compared to cash used in operating activities of $236,980 in the previous fiscal year.

Net sales for the fiscal year 2011 were $4,899,375 versus net sales of $5,075,222 in fiscal 2010. The decrease in sales was mainly attributed to reimbursement of new product registration costs and sales incentives in Asia.

Research and development expense was $420,571 in fiscal 2011 as compared to $455,171 in fiscal 2010. The Company eliminated its internal research group in July 2010, but still invested considerable funds in the effort to launch certain new products for market (both internally developed and licensed from others) and also incurred significant costs of severance in the discontinuation of the research group.

"While sales were relatively flat this year, we expect an increase in sales beginning the first quarter of fiscal 2012," stated Zackary Irani, Biomerica CEO. "We have been diligently working on several new products and expect that many of these products will be introduced in this coming fiscal year. At the same time we have been pursuing new distribution in several countries in South East Asia and South America."
