"We continue to feel very positive about the progress we are making as second quarter revenue improved over our first quarter and we saw increases in the number of locations in Europe offering skin scanning using our technology. In addition, recently we have made significant progress in Ontario where a number pharmacy locations have agreed to deploy our technology, and we have had a number of initiatives to increase awareness of our technology in the United States," commented Rob von der Porten, MedX CEO. "Revenue for the first half of the year was lower versus prior year as our distribution partner's purchases in 2015 corresponded with their launch in the UK, however, we anticipate that Q3 revenue this year will be higher than last year. In addition, SIAscopy will now be used in Ontario in several settings, which we think will prove our business model in North America, holding promise for the future" continued Mr. von der Porten.
