ORLANDO, Fla. /Florida Newswire/ — MEDITE Cancer Diagnostics, Inc. ("Company," OTCQB symbol: MDIT / OTCBB:MDIT / OTCMKTS:MDIT), specializing in the development, manufacturing, and marketing of molecular biomarkers and premium medical devices for detection, risk assessment and diagnosis of cancer and precancerous conditions announces second quarter and six month 2015 results.
The Company reports a comprehensive profit (net of the foreign currency translation effect) of $14 thousand and an operating loss of $6 thousand on revenues of $2.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2015. For the six months ended June 30, 2015, revenues are $4.4 million with an operating loss of $191 thousand. Euro revenues for 2015 have increased 5 percent versus 2014 Euro revenues. However, since about 90 percent of all revenues are generated and invoiced in Euro currency and the U.S. Dollar appreciated significantly versus the dollar, reported revenues for the quarter ended and six month period June 30, 2015 declined versus the same periods for June 30, 2014.
Along with the currency translation effect on 2015 sales and gross profit versus 2014, operating expenses in 2015 reflect all of the former CytoCore division's expenses for the 3 and 6 months ended June 30, 2015. Since CytoCore Inc.'s merger with MEDITE Enterprises, Inc. was effective, April 2, 2014, CytoCore's expenses are not reflected in the first quarter operating expenses for 2014. Therefore, reported R&D expenses increased 35 percent for the six months ended 2015 versus 2014.
During the first six month the Company increased its equity by over $1 million to $9.4 million which now represents an equity ratio of 58 percent.
In 2014, MEDITE Enterprise, Inc., with its subsidiaries in Germany, Austria and Poland, transformed through its purchase by CytoCore, Inc. from a privately owned company into a public company with a well know brand, 76 employees and an existing distribution network into about 70 countries.
MEDITE is now recognized as an up and coming competitor in the multibillion dollar anatomical pathology and cytology global market. MEDITE's products improve the process and quality of cytology and histology methods and tools used for risk assessment and the diagnosis of cancer or precancerous conditions. The company is focused on becoming a global manufacturer of total histology and cytology solutions. The synergies resulting from the combined extensive research, knowledge, experience and developments of former CytoCore, Inc., with the engineering and marketing capabilities of MEDITE, should significantly expand product offerings and addressable markets for the new MEDITE.
We believe our investments in marketing, research and development as indicated in our results of operations for the six month 2015, provide the launch for an exciting growth company looking to significantly increase participation and market share in a dynamic multibillion industry.
