René Goehrum, President and CEO of BioSyent, commented, “We recorded our highest ever quarterly sales in Q3 2019 due in large part to the shipment of a backlog of international FeraMAX® orders during the quarter. We continue to experience delays in shipping international FeraMAX® orders due to the transactional challenges inherent to this business. In our Canadian business, we saw modest growth during the quarter with single-digit sales growth of FeraMAX® and continued headwinds in our Hospital Business.” Mr. Goehrum continued, “We maintained a healthy net profit margin during the quarter while we continued to invest in our existing brands and to prepare for the future launch of the new Tibella® women’s health product to the Canadian market. We also made further investment in our NCIB share buyback and have repurchased a total of 950,000 common shares to date since commencing the NCIB in December 2018. Our cash position and balance sheet remain strong as we seek out new products to enhance our portfolio of brands in Canada.”
