"Q1 2016 marked BioSyent's 23rd consecutive profitable quarter," commented René Goehrum, President and CEO of BioSyent. "We continued to strengthen our product portfolio during the quarter, making progress in the commercialization of the CYSVIEW® product in Canada used with blue light cystoscopy and successfully re-launching our urgent care product, Atropine, for use in Aguettant System® pre-filled syringes, to Canadian hospitals. In addition, with our FeraMAX® brand recently being named the #1 Doctor and #1 Pharmacist recommended over-the-counter iron supplement in Canada (Rogers Healthcare Group national survey of 820 physicians and 2,321 pharmacists), we expect further momentum in the pharmaceutical business. Our Q1 2016 Revenue, EBITDA and NIAT results are in line with our plan and reflect our enhanced investment in human capital which primarily occurred last year. With products such as CYSVIEW® and Augettant System® Atropine and Phenylephrine in the early stages of commercialization, and growth in our international business, we expect continued revenue growth through the balance of 2016."

Mr. Goehrum continued, "Our recent signing of an exclusive Distribution Agreement for two new cardiovascular products in Canada with estimated annual peak penetration revenues of $20 million and our establishment of an international subsidiary will support further long-term profitable growth both in Canada and internationally."
