Date:11/15/2012

ADDISON, Texas, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ULURU Inc. (OTCQB: ULUR) today announced its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 and provided a review of its operating activities.

Since our last quarterly report, significant progress has been made and the company has achieved numerous important commercial and financial goals including:

  • Received our first order of Altrazeal® for Europe which will be shipped shortly
  • Entered into a strategic collaboration for the development of our  mucoadhesive OraDisc™ technology
  • Arranged a $2 million financing at a 122% premium to market
  • Completed the production of 0.75 gram Altrazeal® blister pack and made the initial shipment to Australia
  •  Made the first shipment to our commercial partner of the veterinary product Derazil®.
  • Based upon our achievements to date in 2012, we are on target to achieve our previously stated objectives for the year, which include:

  • Launch of Altrazeal® in the veterinary market
  • Launch of Altrazeal® in Australia
  • Launch of Altrazeal® in four markets in 2012
  • Completion of manufacturing scale-up for the new 0.75 gram dosage size of Altrazeal®
  • Completion of equity and debt financings to fund the Company's business plan
  • Entering additional strategic commercialization agreements
  • Commenting on the commercial activities, Kerry P. Gray, President and CEO, stated, "The progress that has been made in the first nine months has been outstanding and provides us with confidence for the achievement of rapid revenue growth in 2013. The introduction of Altrazeal® in Australia which is supported by excellent clinical experiences and the positive clinical response that is being experienced in Europe bodes well for the rapid market adoption of Altrazeal®.  Achieving the shipment of the 0.75 gram blister pack of Altrazeal® to Australia and the initial shipment of Derazil® all within a 5 day period is a tremendous achievement for a small organization. I believe with the necessary financing in place, a network of outstanding strategic partners and the excellent clinical success of Altrazeal® we are well placed as we enter 2013."

    For the third quarter of 2012, the Company reported a net loss of $0.8 million, or $0.10 per share, compared with a net loss of $1.0 million, or $0.18 per share, for the same period last year.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, the reported loss has been decreased compared to prior year from $3.2 million, or $0.55 per share, to $2.6 million, or $0.32 per share.

    Operating ResultsRevenues
    Revenues for the third quarter of 2012 were $89,000, as compared to $77,000 for the third quarter of 2011.  The increase in revenues is due primarily to increased Altrazeal product sales.

    Cost of Goods Sold
    Cost of goods sold for the third quarter of 2012 was $113,000, as compared to $11,000 for the third quarter of 2011.  The increase in cost of goods sold is due primarily to increased Altrazeal product sales and from the write-off of $79,000 in obsolete finished goods.

    Research and Development
    Research and development expenses for the third quarter of 2012 were $153,000, including no share-based compensation, as compared to $233,000, which included $17,000 in share-based compensation, for the third quarter of 2011.  The decrease of approximately $80,000 in research and development expenses was primarily due to lower costs for regulatory consulting of $20,000, lower scientific compensation costs of $60,000 related to share-based compensation and a lower head-count.

    Selling, General and Administrative
    Selling, general and administrative expenses for the third quarter of 2012 were $376,000, including $8,000 in share-based compensation, as compared to $567,000, which included $25,000 in share-based compensation, for the third quarter of 2011.

    The decrease of approximately $191,000 in selling, general and administrative expenses was primarily due to lower costs for compensation of $51,000, lower consulting costs for investor relations of $47,000, lower sales & marketing costs of $29,000 due to a revised sales and marketing plan, decreased costs for insurance of $16,000, reduced costs for corporate travel of $12,000, and lower legal costs of $14,000.

    Other income and Other expenses
    Interest expense for the third quarter of 2012 was $134,000 as compared to $23,000 for the third quarter of 2011.  The increase of approximately $111,000 is primarily attributable to costs associated with our convertible debt.

    Commenting on the financial results Kerry P. Gray, President and CEO, stated, "Revenue for the third quarter was basically in line with our projections.  Our expenses during the quarter remain consistent with our business plan as we continue to limit expenses to revenue generating activities. Over the course of the year we have continued to reduce our operating expenses.  Financial performance in the fourth quarter will show continued improvement as revenues will increase significantly due to the sale of Altrazeal® in additional markets and our initial shipment of Derazil®."
