IGI's President and Chief Executive Officer, Jason Grenfell-Gardner, stated, "The launch of our first ever IGI labeled topical pharmaceutical products has enabled us to more than double revenue compared to the first quarter of 2012. We believe that we are one step closer to our mission to become a leading player in the generic topical prescription drug market. At the same time, through the increase in orders from our pharmaceutical partners we were able to grow our formulation and manufacturing contract services revenue 24% over the first quarter of 2012. We believe that our sales strategy to increase revenue and improve our product mix resulted in an increase in gross profit to 30.1% in the first quarter of 2013, from 25.4% in the same period last year." Mr. Grenfell-Gardner continued, "Our research and development team has filed two ANDAs in 2013, one in the first quarter in January and one in April, which should keep us on track with our plan to file at least six ANDAs in 2013. In addition, we are working on completing the transfer of econazole nitrate cream 1%, which pending FDA approval of our site transfer, will allow us to begin manufacturing another IGI labeled generic pharmaceutical product beginning in the third quarter of 2013. We remain committed to our target to at least double our 2012 total revenue and achieve profitability in 2013."
