Carrington Reports Third Quarter 2007 Results

- Revenues Down from Same Quarter Last Year

- Second Consecutive Double Digit Quarter-to-Quarter Revenue Gain

- DelSite Continues Toward Phase I Vaccine Clinical Trial

IRVING, Texas, Nov. 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Carrington Laboratories, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CARN) today reported revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2007 of $6.5 million, compared to $6.7 million in the year-ago period, as the Company discontinued certain unprofitable or marginally profitable products during the third quarter of the current year. However, the revenue in the quarter just ended, was 16 percent higher than the $5.6 million revenue reported for the second quarter of 2007, the second consecutive quarter-to-quarter revenue gain this year.

Medical Services revenue for the third quarter of 2007, at $1.9 million, was down from the year-ago level of $2.3 million. Consumer Services revenue grew 5 percent for the quarter, to $3.8 million from $3.6 million in the year-ago period. Grant income received for funding of research for the Company's wholly-owned drug delivery subsidiary, DelSite Biotechnologies, Inc., decreased by 4 percent for the quarter, to $776,000 from $811,000 a year ago.

Net loss for the third quarter of 2007, including $524,000 of net funding of DelSite, was $2.2 million, or 21 cents per basic and diluted share, an increase of $485,000 from the net loss reported for the year-ago quarter of $1.7 million, or 16 cents per basic and diluted share. Pro forma loss for the quarter, exclusive of DelSite net funding, was $1.7 million compared to a $1.1 million pro forma loss in the prior-year period.

"We continue on the road to bringing growth and profitability to our core business," said Carlton E. Turner, PhD, Carrington's CEO. "Our product revenue and margins improved again this quarter as we grew our more profitable product lines and reduced our overall operating costs."

Commenting on DelSite, Dr. Turner stated, "We continue to focus our strategy on building the clinical foundation of the GelSite(R) polymer drug delivery and adjuvant technologies and on moving them toward commercial introduction. We are seeing increasing interest from both commercial companies and government health agencies in our vaccine and therapeutic delivery systems for both nasal and injectible formulations. In addition, we continue on the path toward filing an IND and conducting a Phase I clinical study in early 2008 of the GelVac(TM) nasal powder influenza H5N1 (bird flu) vaccine."

Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release contains the non-generally accepted accounting principle financial measure of Pro forma loss, which is defined as net loss excluding net DelSite expenses. The amounts included in the calculation of this measure are computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). We believe this measure is useful to investors because it may provide users of this financial information with a meaningful measure of the Company's profitability before funding the research and development activities of its DelSite subsidiary. Pro forma loss is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and thus should not be considered in isolation. Furthermore, it should not be seen as a substitute for metrics prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our reconciliation of this measure to net loss is included in the following tables.

Certain statements in this release concerning Carrington may be forward-looking. Actual events will be dependent upon a number of factors and risks including, but not limited to: subsequent changes in plans by the Company's management; delays or problems in formulation, manufacturing, distribution, production and/or launch of new finished products; changes in the regulatory process; changes in market trends; and, a number of other factors and risks described from time to time in the Company's filings with the Securities & Exchange Commission.
