Theralase Technologies Inc. Announces Q2 Financials

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 30, 2011) - Theralase Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TLT) announces its second quarter 2011 financials.

Revenue remained fairly constant year over year with total revenue for the three month period ending June 30, 2011 at $688,606, compared to $640,270 for the same period in 2010, an increase of 7.5%.

Selling expenses increased for the three month period ending June 30, 2011 to $327,216, compared to $165,432 for the same period the previous year an increase of 98%. The increase is primarily due to increases in the sales and marketing costs associated with the new Territory Sales Managers hired for the US market expansion.

Administrative expenses increased to $319,972 for the three month period ending June 30, 2011 compared to $311,707 for the same period the previous year, an increase of 2.7% as a result of increased expenditures on administrative staff.

Research and development costs increased to $176,623 for the three month period ending June 30, 2011 compared to $161,299 for the same period in 2010, a 9.5% increase. The increase is primarily due to the development costs associated with the patented TLC-2000 biofeedback therapeutic laser system, scheduled to be commercially launched Q1 2012 and costs associated with the research and development of Theralase's patented Photo Dynamic Compounds (PDCs) being developed for cancer, virus and bacteria destruction. In order to capitalize on this research for sterilization in the food processing industries, Theralase has entered into an applied research partnership with George Brown College and is considering other strategic alliances.

Roger Dumoulin‐White, President and CEO of Theralase Technologies Inc. stated, "The net loss for the three month period ended June 30, 2011 was $357,262 which included $20,597 of non-cash expenses (amortization, stock-based compensation expense, foreign exchange gain/loss and lease inducements). The company expenses the future product development costs of the patented TLC‐2000 biofeedback therapeutic laser system and TLC‐3000 Photo Dynamic Compound technology from existing TLC‐1000 therapeutic laser product sales, resulting in the overall net loss. The investment in our future will secure our position as an international leader in medical laser technology both in the therapeutic tissue healing space as well as the tissue destruction space for decades to come."

During the quarter, Theralase announced the appointment of Dr. James R. Andrews as Chairman to its Medical and Scientific Advisory Board. Further appointments include senior medical orthopaedic practitioners and healthcare specialists from the renowned American Sports Medicine Institute (ASMI) and Alabama Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Center (ASMOC) located in Birmingham, Alabama.
