SDIX Reports Second Quarter 2012 Results

SDIX (Nasdaq: SDIX), a leading provider of biotechnology-based products and services for a broad range of life science, biotechnology, diagnostic and food safety applications, today reported financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2012.

Revenue for the second quarter of 2012 was $5.5 million, decreasing from $6.1 million for the same period in 2011. The decrease was primarily related to the timing of IVD sales and continued softness in the biopharmaceutical market. Food Safety revenue continued to show improvement over the fourth quarter of 2011 which marked a recent low point for quarterly revenue as a result of regulatory changes that started impacting the Company during the second quarter of 2011. Second quarter Food Safety revenue increased 8.8% over first quarter 2012 revenue, which in turn was 5% over fourth quarter 2011 revenue. Year-to-date revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $11.1 million, decreasing 12% from $12.6 million for the same period in 2011.

Net loss for the second quarter of 2012 was $1.5 million, compared to net loss of $657,000 for the same period in 2011. Net loss for the second quarter of 2011 included income from discontinued operations of $438,000. Net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $2.7 million, compared to a net loss of $1.3 million for the same period in 2011. Net loss in 2011 included income from discontinued operations of $826,000.

Francis M. DiNuzzo, President and CEO of SDIX, commented, “We were pleased to see our Life Science customer orders at the highest level since the second quarter of 2011. While we continue to experience spending challenges in our Life Science end markets, efforts undertaken late in the first quarter to refocus and reorganize our commercial team have played a key role in the improved order performance. Notably, our Food Safety revenues continued to strengthen, with sequential quarterly growth over the last two quarters, driven primarily by success in our Listeria and Salmonella product offerings. This is a trend we believe will continue in subsequent quarters.” Mr. DiNuzzo continued, “We are excited about our continued progress with the Advanced Genomic Antibody Technology™ platform development. Our R&D team continues to meet milestones, including generating recent data that validates our ability to utilize the technology to discover potentially novel monoclonal antibodies against key therapeutic targets. Based on current market trends, this technology could represent a large market opportunity for SDIX. Our next key objective is to compile a full data package which we will use to engage additional pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies in partnership discussions. We are on target to complete the data package in the fourth quarter of this year.”
