Julian T. Ross, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of OxySure, stated, "We ended the quarter with a robust 75% growth rate, and our growth plan for 2015 remains on track. We have also kicked our awareness building process into high gear, and early results have been remarkable. We believe our strategy, as well as our continued focus, tenacity, and hard work are paying dividends, and there is a new and exciting momentum building."

For the three months ended March 31, 2015, revenues increased by 75% to $624,514 from $356,229 for the three months ended March 31, 2014. The fully burdened gross margin on the revenues was 46.2%, up approximately 4% from 42.3% during the prior period.

Total cartridges as a percentage of the Model 615 installed base as at March 31, 2015 was 45%, up from 39% as at March 31, 2014.

Gross profit was $288,657 for the three months ended March 31, 2015, an increase of 92% from $150,639 for the three months ended March 31, 2014. Selling, general and administrative expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2015 were $1,300,375 compared to $435,247 for the three months ended March 31, 2014. One of the Company's stated goals for 2015 was to start the process of increasing awareness about the Company, its technologies and products. To that end, the Company implemented some significant television and online marketing campaigns. Sales and marketing expenses increased to $464,746 during the three months ended March 31, 2015, up from $87,949 during the three months ended March 31, 2014, as the Company significantly expanded its sales and marketing, branding and investor relations efforts.

Other general and administrative expenses increased by approximately 80% to $622,284 for the three months ended March 31, 2015 primarily as a result of the previously announced increases in staffing in the sales department, as well as staffing additions in supporting areas such as regulatory and quality control, manufacturing and engineering. Other contributing factors to the increase in general and administrative expense include an increase in employee stock option expense, an increase in professional fees, and a significant increase in consulting fees. Consulting fees increased to $69,041 for the three months ended March 31, 2015, up from just $2,086 for the three months ended March 31, 2014.

Interest expense increased to approximately $331,154 for the three months ended March 31, 2015, as compared to $107,607 for the three months ended March 31, 2014, primarily as a result of an increase in the amortization of debt discounts and beneficial conversion features (BCF). The Company recorded approximately $288,556 in non-cash interest related to debt discount amortization during the three months ended March 31, 2015, as compared to $71,740 during the three months ended March 31, 2014.

Net loss during the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $1,340,103, or $0.05 per share, as compared to $376,320 or $0.01 per share during the three months ended March 31, 2014. The weighted average shares outstanding were 28,951,882 and 25,889,334 for three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively.
