HALIFAX, Nova Scotia, Dec. 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MedMira Inc. (MedMira) (TSXV: MIR), reported today on its financial results for the quarter ended October 31, 2018.

Q1 FY2019 Financial Results Highlights

Profit and Loss

  • Revenue: The Company recorded revenues in Q1 FY2019 of $155,065 compared to $143,042 in Q1 FY2018. The 8% increase in revenue compared to Q1 FY2018 was in line with Management’s expectations.
  • Gross Profit: The Company recorded a gross profit in Q1 FY2019 of $114,982 compared to $112,604 for the same period last year.  The Company’s gross profit increased by 2% in comparison to Q1 FY2018. The Company’s gross profit margin in Q1 FY2019 was 74% compared to a gross margin of 79% in the same quarter last financial year. This slight decrease was due to higher sales in international markets which generate a lower profit margin for the Company.
  • Operating expenses: This quarter, the Company recorded operating expenses of $421,711 compared to $579,860 in Q1 FY2018. The decrease of $158,149 in operating expenses was primarily due to the management’s strategy to streamline costs.
  • Net loss: The Company recorded a net loss of $550,039 compared to $636,174 in Q1 FY2018.  The decrease is mainly attributed to the impact of the management’s cost saving program.

Balance Sheet

  • Assets: The Company had an expected decrease of its assets by $19,507 or 6% compared to last quarter due to higher sales in international markets which generate a lower profit margin for the Company.
  • Liabilities: The Company’s liabilities increased by $530,532 or 5% between Q4 FY2018 and Q1 FY2019. This was due to additional loans provided to the Company and additional financial expenses.
  • Loans in default increased by $600,306 or 8% compared to last quarter. All long and short terms debts are currently under negotiation to restructure terms and conditions of repayment.
