PURE Bioscience Reports First Quarter Results

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- PURE Bioscience (Nasdaq: PURE), creators of the patented silver dihydrogen citrate (SDC) antimicrobial, today reported revenues for the fiscal quarter ended October 31, 2008 of $110,600 compared with revenues of $95,300 in the same quarter last year. The Company reported a loss from operations before taxes of $(1,605,300), or $(0.05) per share, for the current quarter compared with a loss of $(1,008,700), or $(0.04) per share, in the first fiscal quarter last year.


Michael L. Krall, President and CEO of PURE Bioscience, stated, "It was expected that revenues, while reflecting an increase over the year ago quarter would be down sequentially. As we stated in our recent conference call, the product needs of our distributors during the early phases of their sales and marketing launches will vary significantly. In addition, newer distributors must complete regulatory approval before commercialization, and those timelines are unpredictable. Accordingly, our quarterly revenue will not always exhibit linear growth. However, with the maturing of these and additional product roll outs during the coming quarters, and the expansion of a more robust partner and distribution pipeline, we are confident in solid year-over year-growth.

"A number of new partners and distributors have a geographic presence, market expertise and established sales channels, which will help shorten their time to market. This pipeline has its foundation in the successful execution of the three core elements of our business plan: expanding our distribution network for hard surface disinfectant; developing industry leading alliances, such as with Rockline Industries and Ciba, to establish and expand commercial uses of SDC; and establishing strategic partnerships with companies like FTA Therapeutics to broaden the use of the SDC molecule as an active pharmaceutical ingredient in medical, dental and veterinary applications."

Krall continued, "SDC is unique because of its superior efficacy and its low toxicity, while providing residual protection without promoting bacterial resistance. As pressure mounts in the US and abroad for environmentally sound technologies to address global health concerns, we feel that PURE is well-positioned to supply SDC as a prime solution to multiple markets including household, institutional, healthcare, personal care, textiles, industrial fluids, water treatment, agriculture and food processing."

During the quarter, the United States Patent and Trademark Office issued patent number 7,435,438, which covers PURE's process for treating consumable food products with silver dihydrogen citrate (SDC) to reduce or eliminate microbial contamination. The new patent expands the scope of protection of PURE's core technology patent, US Patent 6,197,814, covering the composition and method of making of PURE's silver dihydrogen citrate (SDC) antimicrobial.

Subsequent to the quarter's end, in November PURE announced a new agreement with Ciba (SWX: CIBN) to market and sell PURE's silver dihydrogen citrate antimicrobial as a natural preservative and biocide in the personal care, household, and industrial markets worldwide. In the personal care market, PURE granted Ciba exclusive marketing rights for SDC under the trade name Ciba(R) TINOSAN(R) SDC.

"We continue to work on a number of important alliances and major market opportunities and expect that these efforts will be successful on an ongoing basis," Krall concluded.
