Pompano Beach, April 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DS Healthcare Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: DSKX), a leading developer of hair care, facial care and other personal care products, announced today its Annual Report for 2012. Total net revenues increased $1,551,562, or 16%, from $9,672,861 for the year ended December 31, 2011 to $11,224,424 for the year ended December 31, 2012. Such expansion also resulted in an increase in operating expenses. While the company's net loss increased to a $3,623,110 net loss for the year ended December 31, 2012, the company anticipates recognizing revenues of approximately $2,000,000 of product orders during December 2012 that it was unable to fulfill prior to December 31, 2012. These product orders were subsequently shipped during the three months ended March 31, 2013.
The Company's chief executive officer, Daniel Khesin, stated, "2012 was a tremendous year for DS Healthcare. We launched new products, expanded into new markets, while increasing our presence in existing ones, commenced quotation on NASDAQ and completed our first acquisition. Our continued growth and expansion, while resulting in an increased net loss for the year, marked another record year of revenues. While our operational expenses increased, we believe such expenses have expedited our continued growth and expansion and we look forward to continued growth in 2013."
