CHICAGO, May 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Female Health Company (Amex: FHC) which manufactures and markets the FC and FC2 Female Condoms(R), today reported its operating results for the second quarter and first half of FY2008. The Company will host an investor conference call today, May 14, 2008, at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time to discuss its operating results and other topics of interest (see details below).

For the three months ended March 31, 2008, the Company's net revenues increased 20% to approximately $6.4 million, compared with approximately $5.3 million in the three months ended March 31, 2007. The Company's net income attributable to common stockholders increased 267% to $1,165,936, or $0.04 per diluted share, during the second quarter of FY2008, compared with $317,348, or $0.01 per diluted share, in the corresponding period of the previous fiscal year.

Gross profit increased 31% to $2.7 million (41.8% of revenue) in the most recent quarter, compared with $2.0 million (38.2% of revenue) in the second quarter of FY2007. Operating income increased 137% to $827,133 (12.9% of revenue) in the three months ended March 31, 2008, compared with operating income of $348,820 (6.6% of revenue) in the quarter ended March 31, 2007.

The Company expects significant quarter to quarter variations due to the receipt of large orders, production scheduling, and shipping of products.

The net income attributable to common stockholders for the three months and six months ended March 31, 2008 includes a benefit for income taxes of $377,000. This income tax benefit is the result of the continual evaluation of our ability to realize our deferred tax assets based on all available positive and negative evidence including our past operating results and our forecast of future taxable income. We did not recognize such a benefit for the three and six months ended March 31, 2007.

The Company has Federal and state net operating loss carryforwards of approximately $66 million, expiring in years 2008 to 2027. The Company's UK subsidiary, The Female Health Company-UK plc. has UK net operating loss carryforwards of approximately $88 million. The UK net operating loss carryforwards can be carried forward indefinitely to be used to offset future U.K. taxable income.

For the six months ended March 31, 2008, the Company's net revenues increased 27% to approximately $12.1 million, compared with approximately $9.5 million in the six months ended March 31, 2007. For the six months ended March 31, 2008, net income attributable to common stockholders increased to $1,979,904, or $0.07 per diluted share, compared with $90,424, or $0.00 per diluted share, in the corresponding period of the previous fiscal year.

Gross profit increased 52% to $5.0 million (41.5% of revenue) in the first six months of FY2008, compared with $3.3 million (34.8% of revenue) in the first half of FY2007. Operating income increased to $1,556,779 (12.8% of revenue) in the six months ended March 31, 2008, compared with operating income of $130,414 (1.4% of revenue) in the same period last year.

During the first half of FY 2008, the Company generated $2.4 million in cash from operations. The Company has no debt and $1.5 million in unused credit lines.

"We are very pleased to report record revenues and earnings during the first half of our 2008 fiscal year," noted O.B. Parrish, Chief Executive Officer of The Female Health Company. "Growing acceptance of the female condom as the only available barrier contraceptive method controlled by women that allows them to protect themselves against HIV/AIDS is the basis for our growth. The FC Female Condom is now available in over 100 countries, and we believe it will play an increasingly important role in the global battle against HIV/AIDS in the future."

"Orders for our second-generation female condom, the FC2, have continued to increase, and we now have four FC2 production lines in Malaysia. Our partner in India, Hindustan Latex Ltd., is operating a production line in that country, which has a population of over one billion people and a rapidly increasing incidence of HIV/AIDS. Lower manufacturing costs for FC2 allow us to sell the second-generation product to public health agencies at a significantly lower price than the FC1, while providing a higher gross profit margin on revenues. This was evident in an expansion in our gross profit margin to 41.5% in the first half of FY2008, from 34.8% in the first half of the previous year."

"In early April, FHC provided earnings guidance for the first time for the full fiscal year 2008. We indicated that we expected unit sales for FY 2008 to increase 20-25% over the 25.9 million units sold in FY 2007 and pre-tax income to increase 100% to 125% over the $868,913 recorded for FY 2007. We confirm the unit sales guidance for FY 2008. We now expect pre-tax income to increase 150-200% over the FY 2007 figure."

"We are optimistic regarding the outlook for The Female Health Company. Our team members are now working with organizations in nearly all regions of the world, from Brazil to Cambodia, from the United Kingdom to India, from New York to South Africa. Given the gravity of the HIV/AIDS pandemic, our results are an indicator of the even greater contribution the female condom will make to world health in coming years," concluded Parrish.
