Company to Host Investor Webcast at 11:30 am ET on May 16, 2013

FRISCO, TX--(Marketwired - May 16, 2013) - OxySure® Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: OXYS) ("OxySure," or the "Company") today reported financial and operating results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013.

First Quarter 2013 Highlights :

  • Total revenues increased 762% to $240,420 from $27,884
  • Recorded $125,000 license and service revenues from international customers
  • Gross profit increased 1133%; gross margins up from 54.4% to 77.9%
  • Reduced interest expense by 56%
  • Net loss per share for the year down from $.02 to $.007

Julian T. Ross, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of OxySure, stated, "Our positive sales momentum continues to gain steam, with record sales, gross profits and gross margin in the first quarter. We are seeing strong interest from existing and new customers in the U.S. and internationally for our life-changing products. Our focus on expanding distribution and adding complementary products is just beginning to pay off. We will continue to invest in branding, distribution, R&D and sales to drive additional market awareness and penetration." 

For the three months ended March 31, 2013, revenues increased $212,536 to $240,420. The increase was driven by a 314% increase in product sales in the United States and $125,000 of revenues from licensing and service agreements. The Company added a significant new distributor in the AED sector in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom during the first quarter of 2013, expanding its presence in the international "AED companion market." Revenues from products for the military increased significantly as a result of a teaming agreement.

Gross profit was $187,239 for the three months ended March 31, 2013, an increase of $172,057 from $15,182 in the same period last year, primarily due to significantly higher product and service sales. Gross margin was 77.9%, up significantly from 54.4%, representing the highest quarterly gross margin in the Company's history.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were $331,352 compared to $283,485 for three months 2012. The Company increased sales and marketing expenses from $2,430 to $58,347 as it expanded its sales and branding efforts. OxySure increased research and development expenses substantially in connection with products for military markets. These increases are offset by a decrease in other general and administrative expenses, which fell by 16% to $236,294 primarily as a result of a decrease in depreciation and amortization expense, and a decrease in employee stock option expense, offset by an increase in professional fees.

Interest expense fell 56% from $57,854 during the first quarter of 2012 to $25,237 for the first three months of 2013.

Net loss decreased to $169,349, or $0.007 per share, compared to $325,451 or $0.02 per share for the first quarter of 2012. The weighted average diluted shares outstanding were 22,665,515 and 17,844,462 for first three months 2013 and 2012, respectively.

The total number of derivative securities outstanding reduced by 3,689,293 or 46% from March 31, 2012 to March 31, 2013 as follows:

  • Options to purchase common stock reduced by 498,833 or 26% to 1,444,921 from 1,943,754
  • Warrants to purchase common stock reduced by 1,235,115 or 45% to 1,519,534 from 2,754,650
  • Common shares issuable upon conversion of convertible preferred stock reduced by 671,000 or 42% to 937,875 from 1,608,875
  • Common shares issuable upon conversion of convertible notes reduced by 1,284,345 or 76% to 411,985 from 1,696,330

Total assets increased to $1,316,885 at March 31, 2013 from 1,215,797 at December 31, 2012. The Company reduced its cash burn by 17% in the first quarter of 2013. The Company is opportunistically evaluating various debt and equity options to finance its growth.
