PURE Bioscience Reports Fourth Quarter and Year End Results

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- PURE Bioscience (Nasdaq: PURE), creators of the patented antimicrobial, silver dihydrogen citrate (SDC), today reported revenues for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2008 of $1,487,500, which increased more than 340% compared with $336,400 in the prior fiscal year. The Company reported a loss from operations before taxes of $(6,540,300), or $(0.24) per share, compared with a loss of $(4,654,900), or $(0.19) per share, in the prior year.


Included in the loss from operations before taxes for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2008 was $2,638,000 of non-cash expense, including stock-based compensation, amortization and depreciation, compared with $1,796,900 of such non-cash expense for the year ended July 31, 2007.

During the fourth quarter of its fiscal year, PURE announced new distribution agreements with Orchem Corporation and DuraBan International, two recognized organizations with established sales channels which will shortly begin to market SDC-based products. In addition, the Company announced that its distribution partner in Brazil had received approval to manufacture and sell SDC-based disinfectant. Finally, PURE entered into an agreement with FTA Therapeutics, LLC for the development and licensing of additional silver dihydrogen citrate (SDC)-based products for human use. FTA has already begun initial formulation and clinical projects for FDA-regulated dermatology, wound care and medical biofilm control products containing SDC.

Earlier in the year, the company signed an agreement with Rockline Industries, Inc., for North American distribution of PURE's ready-to-use disinfectant product and for the development and North American distribution of wipes products as well as new disinfectant, sanitizer and preservative products containing SDC. Rockline is the market leader in the manufacture and distribution of wipes. In addition, PURE received approval for expanded efficacy claims by the EPA and broadened its patent portfolio; and our common stock commenced trading on the Nasdaq exchange and was added as a component of the Russell Microcap Index.

"During fiscal 2008, we strengthened our competitive position and built upon our private label distribution network culminating in an outstanding fourth quarter in which we posted more than $820,000 in revenue," said Michael L. Krall, President and CEO of PURE Bioscience. "PURE established and continues to make important strides toward finalizing additional contracts with major market players for the integration of SDC into third party products, including a new partnership with a respected leader for the development of FDA-regulated SDC products.

"It is important to note that virtually all of our initiatives within major markets and with world-class partners remain under continuing discussion and negotiation. Furthermore, we have identified a number of large new markets for SDC for agriculture and water applications, particularly within growing developing countries around the world. Finally, regulatory and legislative changes, as well as consumer and competitive pressures are driving companies to explore, review and adopt 'green' and environmentally favorable solutions like SDC, the first new anti-microbial approved by the EPA in over thirty years.

"The size of potential markets and the breadth of applications for our technology continue to grow," concluded Mr. Krall. "From our presentations and meetings across various sectors and country borders, with current, pending and potential industry-leading partners, I have never been more encouraged and confident in the soundness of our strategy, the focus of our execution and the enormous opportunities for growth and success for PURE Bioscience."
