Nephros Announces Preliminary Results for Second Quarter of 2021
Anticipates Net Revenue of $2.2 Million, Greater Than 40% Year-Over-Year Increase;

SOUTH ORANGE, NJ, July 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NewMediaWire -- Nephros Inc.. (Nasdaq: NEPH), a leading water technology company providing filtration and pathogen detection solutions to the medical and commercial markets, today announced preliminary results for the second quarter of 2021.
Revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 is expected to be approximately $2.2 million, a year-over-year increase of over 40%. In addition, the Company submitted its HDF Assist Module for FDA 510(k) clearance.
“We are very pleased with the results of the second quarter,” said Andy Astor, Chief Executive Officer of Nephros. “Revenue growth seems to be returning to pre-pandemic levels. In addition, revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2021 is expected to be over $5 million, a 20% increase over the same periods in 2020 and 2019, which we believe puts us in a strong position going into the second half of the year.”
Mr. Astor continued, “We are also beginning to see revenue growth in our Pathogen Detection Systems (PDS) business segment, which produced over $50,000 in net revenue this quarter from on-site testing services in conjunction with larger microbiological remediation efforts.”
“Of further note, in late June, our Specialty Renal Products (SRP) subsidiary submitted its Traditional 510(k) application for clearance of our second-generation HDF Assist Module. Pending this FDA clearance, SRP is preparing for commercial launch at a limited number of dialysis clinics.”
Nephros ended the second quarter with approximately $8.3 million in cash on a consolidated basis.
Nephros will formally announce its second-quarter results on Thursday, August 5, 2021, and will host a conference call that same day at 4:30 PM ET.
