ProPhase Labs Reports Financial Results

for the Year Ended December 31, 2018

 

DOYLESTOWN, Pennsylvania – March 26, 2019. 

ProPhase Labs, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRPH, www.ProPhaseLabs.com) today reported its net sales from continuing operations were $13.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2018, as compared to net sales of $9.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2017. The Company realized a net loss for the year ended December 31, 2018 of $1.7 million compared to a net income of $40.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2017.

 

The Company realized loss from continuing operations for the year ended December 31, 2018, of $1.6 million, or ($0.14) per share, as compared to a loss of $2.2 million, or ($0.14) per share, for the year ended December 31, 2017. The Company realized loss from discontinued operations for the year ended December 31, 2018, of $170,000, or ($0.01) per share, as compared to income of $42.8 million, or $2.75 per share, for the year ended December 31, 2017.

 

As previously announced, effective March 29, 2017 and with the approval of the Company’s stockholders, the Company completed the sale of assets comprised principally of the sale of intellectual property rights and other assets relating to the Cold-EEZE® brand and product line (collectively, referred to herein as the “Cold-EEZE® Business”) to a wholly-owned subsidiary of Mylan N.V. (“Mylan”). As a consequence of the sale of the Cold-EEZE® Business, for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, the Company has classified as discontinued operations the (i) gain from the sale of the Cold-EEZE® Business, (ii) all gains and losses attributable to the Cold-EEZE® Business and (iii) the income tax expense attributed to the sale of the Cold-EEZE® Business.

 

We continue to own and operate our manufacturing facility and manufacturing business in Lebanon, Pennsylvania, and our headquarters in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. As part of the sale of the Cold-EEZE® Business, we entered into a manufacturing agreement to supply various Cold-EEZE® lozenge products to Mylan. In addition, we produce over-the-counter drug and dietary supplement lozenges and other products for other third party customers. We are also pursuing a series of new product development and commercialization initiatives in the dietary supplement category.

 

 
   

 

Ted Karkus, the CEO of the Company, stated: “It continues to be our goal to optimize the long term value of our company’s shares.  In 2017, to provide enhanced liquidity to our shareholders we conducted two self-tenders and enabled our shareholders to sell back just over 6 million shares of Company common stock.  In 2018, we provided a one-time special dividend of $1.00 per share to all of our shareholders.  More recently, we followed this up with an additional one-time special dividend of $0.25 per share.  In short, the ProPhase management team continues to return great value to our shareholders.”

 

Mr. Karkus continued, “We are on track with the development of ProPhase Digital Media (“PDM”), the digital marketing division of the Company. We recently completed the optimization phase for digital distribution of our lead product, Legendz XL®. We expect to ramp up direct to consumer sales of Legendz XL® during 2019.  If our model proves successful, our goal is for PDM to market our other internally developed products and ultimately market other companies’ products as well.”

 

Mr. Karkus added, “In addition to digital distribution, we continue to ship our new dietary supplement, Legendz XL®, to a major retail drug chain and other retailers.  We currently have positive indications of interest from other major retailers as well.  Implementation of our dietary supplement strategy will require significant investment in marketing as well as significant additional distribution within the various retail channels and e-commerce venues in order to achieve a successful launch and build a successful new product line.”

 

Mr. Karkus also noted, “We continue to own and operate our Pharmaloz manufacturing facility which manufactures and supplies Cold-EEZE® lozenges to Mylan as well as lozenges to other companies on a contract manufacturing basis. Manufacturing revenue fluctuates from quarter to quarter.  Also, marketing and distribution expenses may increase as we build our consumer products businesses.  Therefore, the Company’s results are likely to continue to fluctuate from quarter to quarter.”

 

Mr. Karkus concluded, “Looking forward, in addition to developing our consumer products businesses and growing our manufacturing business, the Company continues to explore a wide range of acquisition opportunities in the consumer products space, as well as investments and acquisitions in other sectors and industries.”
