While Management continues to navigate the supply and demand disruptions caused by the Covid-19 global pandemic, and the reduced demand for products due to the African Swine Fever, overall sales in the second quarter increased over the previous quarter.

During these extraordinary times, Management has remained committed to a cautious and careful approach to cash management, putting the company in a strong position to continue to weather these factors that are outside its control.

“We are pleased with the moderate progress we have made in the second quarter of this fiscal year, but will remain cautious with cash reserves moving forward” said George Usher, President and CEO. “Additionally,” he added, “although we are disappointed that we were unable to return to profitability in this quarter, we are seeing the beginning of an improvement in iron dextran sales.” He continued, “Of course, we are also vigorously exploring new markets for the company’s powdered products and also Native Dextran for industrial uses in an intensive effort to return to profitability in fiscal 2022.
