Covalon Technologies Ltd. Announces Year End Financial Results and Resignation of Director


1/28/2013 10:05:12 AM

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Jan. 28, 2013 /CNW/ - Covalon Technologies Ltd. (the "Company" or "Covalon") (TSXV: COV), an advanced medical technologies company, today announced financial results for its year ended September 30, 2012. Revenue for the year was $3,793,451. Revenue was up 47% year over year as a result of the changeover from the old exclusive wound care distribution arrangement to the new path the Company has chosen which is resulting in new agreements.

Annual operating expenses were $5,132,582 compared to $4,743,770 in the previous year. During the year, the Company had two new products cleared by the United States FDA - IV Clear and SurgiClear - which resulted in a significant investment in sales and marketing expenses to launch the products. In the previous fiscal year, the Company invested in research and development for outside testing to provide data for FDA and other regulatory filings for the two new products.

Net loss was $3,991,382 or $0.05 per share compared to $3,561,941 or $0.05 per share in the previous year. Covalon consumed significant cash reserves during the year in funding the development and launch of IV Clear and SurgiClear. The Company anticipates reduced operating expenses going forward.

The Company also announced today the resignation of Mr. William Jackson as a Director of the Company. "On behalf of Management and the Board of Directors, I would like to thank William for his contributions to Covalon over the past many years," stated Mr. Abe Schwartz, Chairman of the Board of Directors.
