Daxor has been reporting as an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940 since January 1, 2012.

Michael Feldschuh, the Executive Vice-President of Daxor, stated, "Our trailing financial results reinforce our conviction that current restructuring of operations toward efficiency and profitability, which have begun in earnest in the past quarter, will be crucial to generating positive results in the coming fiscal year. We have identified important opportunities to leverage our sales efforts and will continue to pursue partnerships with entities that are promising as we add resources and rigor to this important effort."

Dr. Feldschuh, the CEO of Daxor, added the following: "We are focused on outreach to our client hospitals and members of the medical community so that understanding of the need for measuring patient's blood volume precisely to improve outcomes will become more widespread. The precise knowledge of a patient's blood volume is essential for optimally treating critically ill medical and surgical patients. Our goal is to make our method of blood volume measurement the standard of care for any patient experiencing a blood volume derangement."

The Company is continuing its stock buyback program and plans to declare and pay a dividend in December of 2015.
