TORONTO, May 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Polydex Pharmaceuticals Limited (OTC/Pink:POLXF) (the “Company”) reports financial results for its fiscal year ended January 31, 2019. All figures are reported in U.S. dollars.

The order book remains strong leading into the new year with increased orders from existing customers and the potential for interest from new customers. Problems and required repairs with our drying equipment in the fourth quarter did not result in the loss of any orders but did delay sales for the year just ended, which are now being shipped. If not for the required repairs, gross margins would have been comparable with the previous years.

We are expanding our powder production options to assist in preventing further delays and increase powder production. We have outsourced a large order to a custom spray drying organization with whom we have an established relationship while we continue work on bringing our second spray dryer online in the second or third quarter of this year.

There are a number of factors that management believes will have a positive impact in fiscal 2020 including investments in plant upgrades of a new Purified Water system.

“This is all part of our continued focus on quality, productivity and efficiency and efforts to control utility costs and general costs of production,” said company President and CEO George Usher “and with cash of over $1.5 million and receivables of over $1 million to begin fiscal 2020 the company is in a very stable position.”
