TUSTIN, Calif., Nov. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AMDL, Inc. (Amex: ADL), a vertically integrated pharmaceutical company with operations in China and the US, announced today preliminary third quarter earnings and revised 2008 guidance information.
For the third quarter of FY2008, AMDL expects gross sales to be approximately $12.4 million and net sales after sales promotions of approximately $9.2 million. Gross profit is expected to be approximately $4.9 million and income from operations to be approximately $2.3 million. The Company expected net income before currency translation to be approximately $1.6 million.
Earnings were originally projected to be approximately $3.4 million. However, the Company made a strategic decision to offer promotional discounts of $3.2 million to promote new product sales in the Chinese marketplace, primarily for the newly released formulations of AMDL's best-selling Goodnak(R) anti-aging product line. The existing promotional discounts will carry forward into the fourth quarter of 2008 and the first quarter of 2009. Based upon this information, AMDL continues to anticipate targeted gross sales of approximately $32 to $36 million for 2008. With regards to earnings guidance, the Company now estimates net income before foreign currency translation to be between $1.8 and $ 2.2 million for FY2008.
"We're operating AMDL for long-term success in a period of accelerated growth," said AMDL's Chairman and newly appointed CEO Mr. Douglas MacLellan. "We made a strategic and conscious decision to provide sales promotion discounts for certain new products in the third and fourth quarters which we believe will accelerate the introduction and market penetration. Specifically, sales promotion discounts incurred this quarter are the result of a promotion campaign to expand AMDL's sales footprint for newly released formulation of our Goodnak anti-aging line -- AMDL's highest profit margin product line. This is an investment and important part of our marketing strategy to increase sales revenue; bolster AMDL's competitive position in China and new markets and to drive long-term growth for the Company & our shareholders."
AMDL will discuss its business outlook during its regular quarterly conference call which is scheduled for the end of November. Specific details will be announced later this month.
Mr. MacLellan continued, "With the recent adjustments made in our business -- including an expanded and strengthened senior management team and board of directors, revised business strategy, and prioritized focus on securing additional capital to support AMDL's future growth -- we have embarked on the most exciting era in the Company's history. What lies ahead is the perfect opportunity to establish AMDL as a market-winning leader that delivers lucrative, long-term returns for our employees, partners, customers and shareholders."
Mr. MacLellan will cover today's news in a scheduled presentation he will deliver at Rodman & Renshaw's Annual Global Investment Conference taking place today, November 12th, 2008 at the New York Palace Hotel in New York City.
