AUGUST 11, 2017 05:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time
HONOLULU—(BUSINESSWIRE)—Cardax, Inc. (OTCQB:CDXI) reported June 30, 2017 results today.
Cardax announced today that its revenues from ZanthoSyn™ were more than $170,000 during the first half of 2017. Revenues in the second quarter do not reflect the purchase order received this month from General Nutrition Corporation (“GNC”) to stock ZanthoSyn™, Cardax’s safe, physician friendly astaxanthin dietary supplement for inflammatory health and longevity, in all of the more than 3,200 GNC corporate stores nationwide. As a result, third quarter revenues are expected to be significantly higher than the second quarter and prior periods.
Cardax noted that its revenues for the second quarter of 2017 were approximately $66,000, which reflected a decrease from the first to second quarter primarily related to the initial stocking of ZanthoSyn™ in Hawaii GNC stores in Q1 that continued to support sales at GNC stores in Q2. The Company’s Q2 loss decreased moderately versus Q1 and, as expected, increased modestly from a year ago primarily due to ZanthoSyn sales and marketing activity.
“We are pleased to see GNC same store sales of ZanthoSyn accelerate in the second quarter,” said Cardax CEO, David G. Watumull. “Physician recommendations and our outreach to GNC store personnel played a key role in this increase and position us well for continued growth.”
Please refer to the Form 10-Q filed by the Company today for additional information.
