Pressure BioSciences (OTCQB: PBIO), a leader in the development and sale of broadly enabling, pressure-based instruments, consumables and specialty-testing services to the worldwide biotechnology, biotherapeutics, nutraceuticals, cosmeceuticals, agriculture, and food & beverage industries, is reporting company financial results for the third quarter ended Sept. 30, 2023. The company also released a business update and limited guidance for the remainder of 2023. Highlights of the report include an increase in total revenue for the third quarter, which came in at $413,000, an increase of 187% from Q3 2022; instrument and consumable sales for the quarter totaled $398,700, an increase of 198% from $134,000 for the same quarter in 2022; operating loss for the quarter was down 5%, totaling $1,292,800 compared to $1,363,400 for third-quarter 2022; basic and diluted net loss per share was $(0.29) for Q2 2023 compared to $(1.21) for Q3 2022; and cash used from operations during the quarter was down 30%, reported at $732,400 vs. $1,053,100 for Q3 2022. Increases were also seen in the nine-month financial report. Corporate highlights include a study, which was published in a peer-reviewed journal, indicating that PBIO’s UltraShear nanoemulsion platform delivers CBD with unprecedented speed, efficiency, reliability and bioavailability, vastly outperforming other nanoprocessing methods; the signing of an exclusive distribution agreement with Bioscreen, a premier life sciences distributor in India; increased purchase orders for UltraShear Nano CBD topical spray from PBIO partner Veteran Service Team; and the fulfillment of PBIO’s initial round of Nano CBD orders beginning in October.
Looking forward, the company is exploring opportunities for the sale of noncore assets to help fund growth needs while supporting its current strategic focus on UltraShear platform development. PBIO has also begun discussions with several groups regarding the potential of seeking FDA approval for its UltraShear-processed Nano CBD. PBIO has scheduled an earnings conference call today at 4:30 p.m. ET. Those interested in the call may dial 1-888-506-0062 (in North America) or 1-973-528-0011 (international) and use the access code 783860. “Total revenue, instrument sales and consumable sales for the third quarter 2023 were significantly greater than sales for the comparable product categories in Q3 2022,” said PBIO director of marketing and sales John B. Hollister in the press release. “Cash used from operations in both Q3 2023, and in the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2023, was significantly less than cash used from operations in the comparable periods in 2022. Although these results are near record levels, we are nonetheless disappointed that revenue has not been significantly greater in 2023. Consequently, we are actively developing new, aggressive marketing and sales programs for 2024, ones that we believe will result in the ramping revenues that we expect to achieve, and that our shareholders deserve. We look forward to the release of these new programs, and to their expected positive impact on our financial results in 2024.”
