International Isotopes Inc. Announces First Quarter 2008 Financial Results

Revenue Increase 45% to $ 1.3 Million - Increases in Nearly All Business


IDAHO FALLS, Idaho, May 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- International Isotopes Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: INIS) announces financial results for the first quarter ending March 31, 2008.

REVENUE: Revenue for the three-month period ended March 31, 2008 was $1,307,938 as compared to $902,632 for the same period in 2007, an increase of $405,306 or approximately 45%. The increase in total revenue was attributable to especially strong performance in cobalt products, radiochemical products, and radiological services business segments.

Revenue from the sale of cobalt products for the three-month period ending March 31, 2008 was $270,528 compared to $39,025 for the same period in 2007. This represents nearly a six fold increase in revenue in the segment and is attributable to increased sales of sealed cobalt sources and teletherapy capsules to numerous customers.

Revenue from the sale of radiochemical products for the three-month period ending March 31, 2008 was $318,408 compared to $225,914 for the same period in 2007. This represents an increase in revenue of $92,495 or nearly 41% and is attributable to increased sales of radiochemical iodine-131.

Revenue from the radiological services segment for the three-month period ending March 31, 2008 was $245,722 compared to $147,609 for the same period in 2007. This represents an increase in revenue of $98,113 or approximately a 66% and is primarily attributable to increased volumes of gemstone processing that have resulted following resolution of the regulatory issues that had limited revenues in this segment during 2007.

GROSS PROFIT: Gross profit for the three-month period ended March 31, 2008 was $698,402 (or 53% of revenue) compared to $373,613 (or 41% of revenue) for the same period in 2007. Operating expenses for the period were $1,145,507 for the three-month period ended March 31, 2008 compared to $920,825 for the same period of 2007. Although operating expense increased by $224,682, or 24%, in the period comparisons, it is important to note that when compared to revenue, operating expense actually declined as a percentage of revenue, from 102% of revenue for the three-month period ended December 31, 2007, to approximately 88% of revenue for the same period in 2008. The most significant factor in the increased operating expense was attributable to an increase in contract labor expense, and cost of stock option benefits during the period. Salaries and contract labor expenses totaled $512,612 for the three-month period ended March 31, 2008, as compared to $336,262 for the same period of 2007, an increase of $176,350 or 52% and primarily attributable to accounting methods of costing stock options. General and administrative (G&A) expense, for the three-month period ended March 31, 2008, were $617,167 as compared to $575,705 for the same period of 2007, an increase of $41,462 or 7%, and was attributable to small increases in salaries and additions to administrative staff.

NET LOSS: The Company's reported loss for the three-month period ended March 31, 2008 was $465,944, compared to a loss of $518,546 for the same period in 2007. This represents a decrease in loss of $52,608 for the periods in comparison. The major elements responsible for this decreased loss was increased revenue in the three major segments discussed above and the reduction in costs of goods sold that has resulted in improved gross profit performance, and reductions in operating costs as compared to the percentage of total revenue for the period.

Steve T. Laflin, President and CEO of International Isotopes Inc. said, "Most of our core business segments continue to demonstrate positive growth as the result of better market penetration and capitalizing upon market opportunities. The reduction in operating expense as compared to revenue is the result of increased efficiencies in operations. During this first quarter, the Company also continued to incur significant legal expenses for protection of intellectual property. I believe the results of this quarter are indicative of the positive trend in financial performance I expect to see for the remainder of the year. I am encouraged by these financial results and look forward to the remainder of the 2008. Company wide, to a person, we are dedicated to improving shareholder value."
