TORONTO, Feb. 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gemoscan Canada, Inc. (TSXV:GES) (MUN:1GE) ("Gemoscan" or the "Company"), a leading owner and marketer of food sensitivity and dietary management solutions, today reported operational and financial results for its fiscal third quarter ended December 31, 2012. In this press release, all dollar amounts are expressed in Canadian currency and results are reported in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

Results were characterized by significantly improved financial performance, driven primarily by the initial success of Gemoscan's focus on the retail segment of its business and the expansion of its revenue base with new sales through various paramedical clinics.

For the three months ended December 31, 2012, total revenues were $352,750, an increase of 289% from $90,612 for the same three-month period in 2011 and up 26% sequentially from $280,629 in the previous quarter. The Company reported a fiscal third quarter net loss of $244,654, or $0.01 loss per common share, as compared to a net loss of $857,271, or $0.04 loss per common share, for the three months ended December 31, 2011.

"While our financial statements continue to reflect the very early stages of the roll out of our HEMOCODE™ and MenuWise™ retail programs, our revenue growth this quarter clearly demonstrates that consumer interest in food intolerance management continues to keep pace with the broader trends related to diet and diet-based wellness. As efforts directed at expanding Gemoscan's retail points of presence continue, we are committed to managing our expenses as we grow, putting us on a clear pathway toward profitability," said Brian Kalish, Gemoscan's President and Chief Executive Officer.
