ULURU Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2008 Financial Results

ADDISON, TX | Posted on August 11th, 2008

For the quarter ended June 30, 2008, the net loss attributable to common stockholders was $2,334,000, or $0.04 per share, compared to a net loss of $1,209,000, or $0.02 per share, for the corresponding period in 2007. The second quarter 2008 net loss was impacted by non-cash expenses of $560,000, which included share-based compensation, amortization, and depreciation of $261,000, $269,000 and $30,000, respectively, whereas the second quarter 2007 net loss included non-cash expenses of $405,000, which included share-based compensation, amortization, and depreciation of $119,000, $269,000 and $17,000, respectively.

Income Statement

Revenues for the second quarter of 2008 were $96,000, compared with $119,000 for the same period last year. The decrease of $23,000 in revenues is primarily attributable to a decrease in sponsored research of $35,000, as the prior year revenue was non-recurring.

Total costs and expenses, including amortization and depreciation, increased by $975,000 in the second quarter of 2008 to $2,508,000, as compared with the corresponding period in 2007 where total costs and expenses, including amortization and depreciation, were $1,533,000. The overall expense increase is primarily attributable to increases in Research and Development of $314,000 and increases in Selling, General and Administrative of $648,000. The increase in Research and Development expenses is attributed to additional costs in direct research for Altrazeal(TM) related products of $35,000 and OraDisc(TM) related products of $16,000, increases for our clinical testing programs of $53,000, regulatory consulting and expenses of $66,000, and additional scientific personnel costs, including share-based compensation, of approximately $145,000. The Selling, General and Administrative expense increase was comprised of administrative personnel costs of $299,000, which is inclusive of $134,000 of share-based compensation, along with increased expenses of $323,000 associated with the ramp-up of our initial sales and marketing efforts for our wound care product line.

Interest and miscellaneous income decreased in the second quarter of 2008 to $79,000 as compared with $206,000 for the same period in the previous year. The decrease of $127,000 is attributable to a decrease in interest income due to lower cash balances and lower interest yields in 2008 versus prior year.

Balance Sheet

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $11,684,000 at June 30, 2008, a decrease of $2,296,000 as compared to our cash and cash equivalents at December 31, 2007 of $13,980,000. The decrease in net cash for the six months ended June 30, 2008 was due primarily to the net cash used in operations of $1,781,000 and the expenditure of $420,000 for manufacturing equipment purchases associated with our OraDisc(TM) and Altrazeal(TM) products.


Commenting on the financial results Kerry P. Gray, President and CEO stated, "With the exception of a delayed receipt of a milestone payment associated with a regulatory filing, our operating results were in line with our forecast projections. The increase in operating expenses are primarily associated with the commercialization and development of our Altrazeal(TM) range of products. To support the launch of Altrazeal(TM), we will continue to invest in our sales and marketing efforts. These efforts are expected to establish key opinion leader support and to develop our business in burn and wound care centers."

During the second quarter we achieved numerous important milestones to include;

-- Launch of Altrazeal(TM);
-- Establishment of our commercial infrastructure, which now includes nine
product specialists;
-- Signing of definitive agreement to acquire Bio Med Sciences, Inc.; and
-- Signing of an additional OraDisc(TM) development agreement.

In conjunction with strategic partners, advancements for of the development of wound care actives in Altrazeal(TM) continues. Additionally, we have advanced the development of Altrazeal(TM) containing silver and anticipate filing a 510k regulatory application with the FDA within the next 60 days.

Gray continued, "We are very pleased with the reception Altrazeal(TM) has received both in burn units and wound care centers. The clinical experience to date is very positive, with the advantages of the Nanoflex technology being demonstrated in a wide variety of difficult to treat wounds. The pre-clinical results including, ease of application, use without a second dressing, accelerated healing, and reduced dressing changes have been demonstrated in numerous wound types. Importantly, patient feedback on the comfort of the dressing and pain has been very positive."
