Skyline Medical Announces Results for Third Quarter and First Nine Months of 2013

MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Skyline Medical Inc. (OTCQB: SKLN) (the "Company"), the producer of the FDA approved STREAMWAY System for automated, direct-to-drain surgical fluid disposal that reduces the risk of exposure to hazardous waste, today reported its results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2013.

Key Highlights:

  • Revenues were $107,835 and $386,418 for Q3 and first nine months of 2013, up more than 108% and 289% compared to Q3 and first nine months of 2012;
  • More than 50 purchase orders were received in Q3 2013 for Skyline's improved STREAMWAY System, scheduled for delivery in Q4 and beyond;
  • Company strengthened balance sheet through conversion of all convertible notes;
  • Company entered Virginia market with multi-unit purchase from Ambulatory Surgical Center;
  • Skyline expanded its presence in Florida with multiple unit sale to a major hospital;
  • Increased sales force to support national and international rollout of STREAMWAY System;
  • National ambulatory surgical center chain client doubles initial Q2 2013 order fully replacing Skyline competitor; and
  • Company became a member of Practice GreenHealth as it continues its focus on being environmentally friendly.
  • Third quarter revenues rose to $107,835, up more than 108% compared to $51,615 for the third quarter in 2012. Year to date revenues rose to $386,418, compared to revenues of $99,210 year to date in 2012. Gross profit for the third quarter of 2013 was $81,654, an increase from ($18,347) for the same period in 2012. The Company has been holding off on a significant backlog of purchase orders due to Skyline's preparation for the mass production of its enhanced STREAMWAY System with the backlog contributing to expected increased revenues through Q4 and beyond.

    Net loss for the third quarter of 2013 was ($3.97) million, or ($0.03) per diluted share, compared to net loss of ($2.86) million, or ($0.04) per diluted share, in the comparable period in 2012. The increase in net loss was primarily driven by an increase in General and Administrative and Sales and Marketing expenses as the Company prepares for a national rollout of the STREAMWAY System.

    "A great deal of our third quarter efforts have been focused on putting the final touches on the enhanced STREAMWAY System, which we have debuted in Q4, and solidifying partnerships and trials to continue the rapid adoption of our technology throughout the United States," said Josh Kornberg, CEO of Skyline Medical. "While our original version of the STREAMWAY System outperformed the market's expectations after our competitor's product was recalled last year, we are confident that the improved product is going to make the STREAMWAY System the go-to surgical fluid disposal system around the U.S. We are currently working with several national hospital and ambulatory surgical companies to ensure that is the case."

    Kornberg continued, "Now that the technological modifications of our STREAMWAY System are complete, we will prepare for mass production and be able to fulfill a large backlog of purchase orders currently in our pipeline. These orders represent approximately $2 million in revenue of which approximately $1 million will be recurring on an annualized basis. We will begin to recognize these revenues immediately as they will impact our financial results starting over the next two quarters."

    About Skyline Medical Inc.
    Skyline Medical, formerly BioDrain Medical, Inc., has a fully automated, patented, FDA cleared, surgical fluid disposal system that virtually eliminates certain operating room workers' exposure to blood, irrigation fluid and other potentially infectious fluids found in the surgical environment. Today's manual surgical fluid handling methods of hand-carrying filled surgical fluid canisters and emptying these canisters is an exposure risk and an antiquated approach to the handling of surgical fluid waste. Skyline's STREAMWAY System fully automates the collection, measurement and disposal of surgical fluids and is designed to result in: 1) reducing overhead costs to hospitals and surgical centers, 2) improving Occupational State and Health Association (OSHA) and other regulatory compliance agencies' safety concerns, and 3) streamlining the efficiency and reducing the operating costs of the operating room.

    Skyline's STREAMWAY System is eco-friendly as it contributes to cleaning up the environment. Currently, approximately 50 million bloody, potentially disease infected canisters go to landfills annually in the United States. These tainted canisters can remain in landfills for years to come. With the installation of Skyline's STREAMWAY System, the number of canisters can be significantly reduced. Skyline Medical, Inc.'s STREAMWAY System is designed to make the operating room and our environment safer, cleaner, and better. Skyline products are currently being represented by independent professional sales representatives that cater to the needs of hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers across the country.
