Derma Sciences Reports Second Quarter 2008 Results
Date:8/14/2008

PRINCETON, N.J., Aug. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Derma Sciences, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: DSCI), a provider of advanced wound care products, announced results today for the second quarter and first six months ended June 30, 2008. Sales were up by 75.4%, reflecting the increased volume and distribution capacity provided by the Company's new First Aid Division as well as the increased sales of its new flagship product, MEDIHONEY(R). For the second quarter in 2008, the company reported sales of $13,083,966, up from $7,461,258 during the same period last year, and continuing an overall upward movement from quarter to quarter.

Commenting on the increases, CEO Ed Quilty said, "Now that the integration is almost complete, we are very excited about the sales and distribution channels that we have created for our new line of products. MEDIHONEY sales were $617,000 for the first two quarters and monthly sales are growing steadily. We sold $152,000 just in the month of July, which is an excellent result for a new dressing. We have two new MEDIHONEY products out on the market and several new products ready to be launched in the months ahead. XTRASORB(TM), our new super-absorbent dressing (which complements the MEDIHONEY products) is due out in September, MOBILITY1(TM), our portable intermittent compression device, will be available in October, and we are in the final phase of preparing to launch a novel off-loading device for diabetic foot ulcers."

Sales were also augmented by Derma Science's expanding sales force, which now numbers thirteen direct sales people, as opposed to only two during the same period last year. Expectations are that the sales force will continue to grow as time taken for a new rep to become profitable is identified, and revenue generated by increased sales of MEDIHONEY and the new product lines help to make the sales force more self-sustaining.

Losses for the second quarter of 2008 were in line with the Company's expectatio
