Kinderhook, N.Y., June 26, 2019 American Bio Medica Corporation (OTCPK: ABMC) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2019.
Chief Executive Officer, Melissa A. Waterhouse stated, “While sales did not increase in Q4 2019 (as they did in Q3 2019), they were relatively flat. In 2019, sales in our core markets declined, some of which was due to timing of shipments to customers at the end of the year. These declines were partially offset by increased contract manufacturing sales (due to two new customers in 2019) along with increased international sales. Operational expenses declined due to continued efforts to control costs wherever possible.”
Waterhouse continued, “Our drug testing business has been negatively impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic in the first half of 2020. The core markets for our drug tests are employment, clinical and government; and each of these sectors has been negatively impacted by the pandemic in various ways. On March 23, 2020, we announced we are distributing a rapid antibody test for Covid-19 and on May 29, 2020
 this COVID-19 test was authorized by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for use by authorized laboratories. Starting in late March 2020, we conducted pre-sales of the product and began shipping orders to customers in May 2020. Sales of the Rapid Covid-19 test have offset the negative impact to our drug testing business. As of the date of this release, we have recorded revenues of just over $1,000,000 which resulted in approximately $430,000 in profit to ABMC after expenses and commissions.”
