NEW CASTLE, Del., Jan. 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ScripsAmerica, Inc. (OTCBB:SCRC), a leading supplier of prescription, OTC and nutraceutical drugs, today announced that the Company's acquisition target, Marlex Pharmaceuticals, Inc., has shipped over $1.1 million of product during the initial three months of its multi-year pharmaceutical distribution contract with the US Department of Defense (DOD) and Defense Logistics Agency (DLA).
During the month of January, the company has ramped up its distribution from an average of 700 bottles per month to a minimum of 1,100 bottles per month, representing a 57% increase. This was accomplished because of its manufacturer's ability to produce a larger quantity of the needed pharmaceutical. Given its current production rate, the company is on pace to meet or exceed the $25 million production requirement of its government contract with the DOD.
CEO of ScripsAmerica, Bob Schneiderman, commented, "We are very pleased to see Marlex Pharmaceuticals reach production rates that position the company to meet its $25 million contract minimum with the Department of Defense. After just one quarter of pharmaceutical packaging and shipping for this contract, Marlex already appears positioned to see a significant increase in its monthly value."
