SAN DIEGO, Calif., Nov. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Trucept Inc. (OTC Pink: TREP) has filed its third quarter report for 2016. The Company earned a net profit of approximately $84 thousand for the three months ending September 30. This is a 23 percent increase in profitability over the previous quarter. CEO Brian Bonar said he is delighted with the company's performance which continues to meet and exceed internal plans. Management has continued to reduce operating expenses by almost 50 percent from the same period in 2015 and will continue to examine bad debt reserves. The examination of bad debt has resulted in the Company reducing its liabilities in excess of $2 million for the nine-month period ending September 30. "We anticipate maintaining steady sales growth, selling more profitable products and offerings," Bonar said. Bonar also said that the company continues to focus on profitability rather than sales growth, and fully anticipates further reductions in accrued liabilities and forecasting a profitable year's end. Trucept Inc. relieves clients from business operations tasks, including payroll processing, human resources support, workers' compensation insurance, safety programs, employee benefits, and other administrative and aftermarket services predominantly related to staffing.
