ULURU Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2007 Results

ADDISON, TX | Posted on November 14th, 2007

For the quarter ended September 30, 2007, the net loss attributable to common stockholders was $1,240,000, or $0.02 per share, compared to a net loss of $3,994,000, or $0.31 per share, for the corresponding period in 2006. For the nine months ended September 30, 2007, the net loss attributable to common stockholders was $3,296,000, or $0.05 per share, compared to a net loss of $8,524,000, or $0.70 per share, for the nine months ended September 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 $140,000 and $361,000, for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2007, respectively, (compared with no expense for the corresponding periods in 2006) and by the amortization of our intangible assets of $272,000 and $806,000 for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2007, respectively.

Income Statement

Revenues for the third quarter of 2007 were $130,000, compared with $113,000 for the same period last year. The overall increase of $17,000 is primarily due to increased licensing fees of $14,000 for OraDisc(TM) B and increased sponsored research of $21,000. These positive factors were partially offset by a decrease in royalties for the third quarter of 2007 associated with the international sales of Zindaclin(R) due to product launches in 2006.

Total costs and expenses increased by $546,000 in the third quarter of 2007 to $1,567,000, compared with the corresponding period in 2006 where total costs and expenses were $1,021,000. General and administrative expenses were primarily responsible for the increase, as these expenses increased from $351,000 in the second quarter 2006 to $821,000 in 2007, a $470,000 increase. Increased costs include legal expenses for patent prosecution ($48,000), expenses related to being a public company, including director fees ($87,000) and costs for our new listing on the American Stock Exchange ($73,000), and compensation related expenses ($184,000) due to personnel additions. Research and development costs increased from $389,000 in the third quarter 2006 to $455,000 in 2007. The $66,000 increase is primarily due to; fees payable to the Food and Drug Administration of $32,000, increased compensation expense of $73,000, and clinical testing expenses of $24,000. These increases were partially offset by a decrease of $71,000 in direct research costs.

Interest and miscellaneous income increased significantly in third quarter 2007 to $197,000 as compared with $3,000 for the same period last year. The increase of $194,000 is attributable to an increase in interest income due to higher cash balances in 2007 as a result of the recapitalization of the Company in December 2006.

There was no interest expense for the three months ended September 30, 2007 as compared to an expense of $617,000 for the same period last year. The decrease in interest expense relates to our payoff in December 2006 of our outstanding secured convertible debentures. Additionally, we did not incur any other expense items for the three months ended September 30, 2007 as compared to the same period last year where other expense items totalled $2,473,000, which were comprised of $1,885,000 for liquidated damages relating to the delay in the effectiveness of a registration statement, $558,000 from a loss on early extinguishment of debentures, and $30,000 from a loss on sale of equipment.

Balance Sheet

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $15,262,000 at September 30, 2007, a decrease of $1,656,000 as compared to our cash and cash equivalents at December 31, 2006 of $16,918,000. The decrease in net cash for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 was due to several factors; the expenditure of $537,000 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 $1,159,000. These net cash decreases were partially offset by proceeds of $390,000 from the exercise of warrants and stock options.

Commenting on the quarterly results, Kerry P. Gray, President and CEO stated, "Our loss from operations was in line with our expectations despite our royalty revenue being below forecast. Our expenses are increasing as we expand our commercial infrastructure in preparation for the launch of our first wound dressing. Additionally, we are also expanding our scientific capabilities to support current product developments along with products being developed in conjunction with our development partners. We anticipate that these expense increases will be offset by licensing revenues from existing agreements and new agreements being negotiated."
