Kinderhook, N.Y., May 20, 2019 – American Bio Medica Corporation (OTCPK: ABMC) today announced financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2019.
Chief Executive Officer Melissa A. Waterhouse stated, “New contract manufacturing sales and increased sales of products offered through distribution relationships partially offset lost government sales in the first quarter 2019 when compared to the first quarter 2018. International sales were also down in the first quarter 2019; most of which we believe is due to timing of orders. Expenses remained in line with sales and this allowed us to report a slight improvement in result from operations.”
- Net sales in the first quarter 2019 were $923,000, compared to net sales of $1,041,000 in the first quarter 2018, a decrease of $118,000, or 11.3%.
- Operating loss was $174,000 in the first quarter 2019, compared to an operating loss of $206,000 in the first quarter 2018.
- Net loss was $240,000 in the first quarter 2019, or $(0.01) per share, compared to a net loss of $267,000, or $(0.01) per share, in the first quarter 2018.
