Third Quarter 2017 Financial Results
Total revenue for the third quarter of 2017 was $5.1 million, a 4% increase from the same period in 2016 and a 6% increase sequentially compared to the second quarter. “We are very pleased with the Company’s performance through the third quarter,” said John Timberlake, President and Chief Executive Officer. “This represents the Company's return to both year-over-year and sequential quarterly growth since the first quarter in 2016, demonstrating that the Company’s high-touch and higher-service sales and marketing strategy continues to gain momentum.
This overall growth was primarily due to an increase in new prescriptions with targeted accounts located in both non-disrupted and disrupted territories. We define non-disrupted territories as those territories that have had the same sales representative since the third quarter of 2016 and disrupted territories as those territories which have had a new sales representative starting after the second quarter of 2016, the majority of which were hired in late first quarter 2017.

Total and new prescriptions in targeted accounts located in non-disrupted territories increased by 17% and 15% year-over-year, respectively. Total and new prescriptions in targeted accounts located in disrupted territories, increased by 10% and 34% year-over-year, respectively. In addition, there was a stabilization of the prescription volume in accounts that were not targeted by our sales representatives.
