ULURU Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2007 Results

ADDISON, TX | Posted on August 13th, 2007

For the quarter ended June 30, 2007, the net loss attributable to common stockholders was $1,209,000, or $0.02 per share, compared to a net loss of $1,612,000, or $0.13 per share, for corresponding period in 2006. For the six months ended June 30, 2007, the net loss was $2,056,000, or $0.03 per share, compared to a net loss of $4,530,000, or $0.38 per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2006. The net loss was impacted by non-cash expenses related to stock options accounted for in accordance with SFAS 123(R) "Share Based Payment" of $119,000 and $221,000, for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2007, respectively (compared with no expense for the corresponding periods in 2006), and by the amortization of our intangible assets of $269,000 and $534,000 for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2007, respectively.

Income Statement

Revenues for the second quarter of 2007 were $119,000, compared with $312,000 for the same period last year. The decrease of $193,000 is primarily due to lower licensing fees as a result of a non-recurring milestone of $155,000 for Zindaclin(R) in 2006 and the lack of Aphthasol(R) product sales to our domestic distributor in 2007 due to timing of product orders. These items were partially offset by an increase in royalties associated with the international sales of Zindaclin(R) along with an increase in sponsored research.

Total costs and expenses increased by $216,000 in the second quarter 2007 to $1,533,000, compared with the corresponding period in 2006 where total costs and expenses were $1,317,000. General and administrative expenses were responsible for this increase, as these expenses increased from $463,000 in the second quarter 2006 to $694,000 in 2007, a $231,000 increase. Increased costs include legal expenses for patent prosecution ($82,000), and expenses related to being a public company, including director fees ($71,000), annual report and annual meeting expenses ($31,000). Research and development costs increased from $478,000 in the second quarter 2006 to $554,000 in 2007. The $76,000 increase is primarily due to fees payable to the Food and Drug Administration of $58,000 and increased compensation expense of $30,000. Cost of product sales declined by $97,000 in 2007 reflecting no shipments to our distributor in the 2007 period.

Interest and miscellaneous income increased significantly in second quarter 2007 to $206,000, compared with $3,000 for the same period last year. The increase of $203,000 is attributable to our increased liquidity due to the recapitalization of the Company in December 2006.

There was no interest expense for the three months ended June 30, 2007 as compared to the expense of $610,000 for the same period last year. The decrease in interest expense relates to the payoff in December 2006 of our outstanding secured convertible debentures.

Balance Sheet

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $16,261,000 at June 30, 2007, a decrease of $657,000 as compared to our cash and cash equivalents at December 31, 2006 of $16,918,000. The decrease in net cash for the six months ended June 30, 2007 was due to several factors: the expenditure of $531,000 for the purchase of manufacturing equipment for commercial scale-up of our OraDisc(TM) products, the $350,000 payment in April 2007 of our original asset purchase obligation, and the net cash used for operations of approximately $51,000. These net cash decreases were partially offset by proceeds of $275,000 from the exercise of warrants to purchase our common stock.

Commenting on the quarterly results, Kerry P. Gray, President and CEO stated, "Our loss from operations was significantly lower than our operating plan despite our revenues being marginally lower than our expectations due primarily to sponsored research payments. Expense control and the development of study plans that offer the best potential returns on our research investment have contributed to this positive variance. We expect our operating expenses to increase over the balance of this year as we expand our organization and clinical study program to take advantage of our product opportunities."

Since the last quarterly report there has been significant progress both in the area of business development and in product development:

-- Three corporate development agreements have been signed.
* A consumer products agreement
* A veterinary products agreement
* An advanced wound care agreement

-- Clinical studies of our wound dressing product have commenced

-- Our clinical study program has been expanded to include studies in
chronic wounds with the VA Hospitals.

-- Two additional product formulations have been developed:
* In conjunction with a partner we have developed a nanoparticle spray
film
* We have expanded our wound care product line to include a preformed
sized wound dressing with the same properties as our powder
formulation

-- We have initiated a porcine study to determine the optimal material
characteristics for the clinical development of a range of dermal
fillers that we anticipate will provide longer periods between
re-application.

Gray continued, "The Company made significant business development and technical advances in the second quarter which exceeded our expectations. In addition to the announced agreements great progress has been made in numerous high value areas to expand our partnering network. The technical achievements provide us with additional opportunities for product candidates and the ability to make further improvements in our wound dressing. The preformed wound dressing product offers a convenient alternative to our powder product for various wound types and provides for additional drug delivery opportunities which we feel has exciting potential to expand our market opportunity."
