Dr. Dolev Rafaeli, PhotoMedex CEO, commented, “We are pleased to deliver another quarter of strong financial results with revenues increasing 63% over last year, gross profit increasing 71% and net income increasing 79%. Revenues for the first nine months of 2012 exceed revenues for all of 2011. Our consumer marketing programs continue to deliver outstanding results, while the steps we have taken to reduce costs, such as using ocean freight more often to deliver products and consolidating manufacturing, have contributed to margin expansion as well.
“Yesterday we reported that sales of no!no! Hair™ once again broke home television shopping sales records in the U.S. at a 24-hour beauty event held this past weekend despite the fact that the Northeast, a major target market, was still suffering from the effects of the recent hurricane. We beat our own record, which was established over this past Fourth of July holiday. The products for this event were shipped in the fourth quarter, while the products for the Fourth of July holiday were shipped in the second quarter.”
Dr. Rafaeli concluded, “In the coming months we are looking forward to expanding our consumer marketing in the U.S. for XTRAC® for the treatment of psoriasis and Neova® to help reverse the effects of sun-damaged skin, and to expanding our international market for the no!no! family of products.”
