SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Human Pheromone Sciences, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: EROX) ("HPS" or "the Company") today announced results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2008. For the three month period ending September 30, 2008, net revenues of $262,000 represented a 10% increase from the revenues of $239,000 in the prior year period, and resulted in a net loss of $30,000 ($.01 per share) as compared with a net loss of $93,000 ($.02 per share) for the same period of 2007. For the nine month period ending September 30, 2008, net revenues of $764,000 were 15% lower than the previous year's $902,000, resulting in a net loss of $181,000 ($0.04 per share) as compared with a net loss of $54,000 ($0.01 per share) in the first nine months of 2007. At September 30, 2008, the Company reflected a cash balance of $1,082,000 compared with $1,437,000 at December 31, 2007, a $355,000 reduction for the nine months of the current year as compared to a decline of $390,000 during the nine months ending September 30, 2007. There was no bank indebtedness at either date.
A spokesperson indicated "the Company was pleased that its cash utilization was only $355,000 for the first nine months of the year, and that net current liquidity (cash, accounts receivable and inventory, less current liabilities excluding current portion of deferred revenue) decreased only $433,000 for the same nine month period. This lower than expected asset utilization was a result of revenues generated under new licensing agreements, and a concerted effort to only invest in programs that are designed to generate additional future revenues."
"However, we still recognize that the marketing plans of our licensees
can create unpredicted volatility of our quarterly performance, and this is
not an acceptable posture for the Company in the long-term. We will still
continue to nurture
