Robert G. Finizio, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "This has been an exciting year for the Company, highlighted by advancements in clinical trials for our three principal hormone therapy drug candidates. The Drug Quality and Security Act was passed into law in November 2013, and the quick action of the FDA to implement and enforce the new law means that compounding pharmacies are now clearly governed by it. This law is a catalyst, and presents an opportunity to move the market from compounded bio-identical hormone replacement therapies, or BHRT, to an FDA-approved bioidentical drug market. We believe that we with our phase 3 REPLENISH Trial to evaluate our combination product well underway, we are well-positioned to capitalize on this new opportunity.

"We have strengthened our Board and management team, which will support and guide us as we continue our evolution as a publicly traded company. Our robust pipeline and strong cash position also contribute to a positive outlook for the Company, and we look forward to our ongoing progress," Finizio concluded.

Fourth Quarter Results

Net revenue for the fourth quarter of 2013 totaled $2.9 million compared with net revenue of $1.2 million for the year ago quarter. The increase of approximately $1.7 million, or approximately 130%, was directly attributable to an increase in the number of physicians writing prescriptions for our prenatal products, the increased productivity of our sales force, an increase in the average net sales price of our product, and new prescription products introduced in March, April, May, and November 2012. Cost of goods sold increased by $134,000, or 40.4%, for the three months ended December 31, 2013 compared with the prior year quarter. Research and development expenses increased to $5.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2013 compared with $1.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, because of costs incurred in the development of our new hormone replacement therapy and prescription prenatal products. Sales, general, and administrative expenses decreased to $4.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2013 compared with $4.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2012. As a result, our operating loss was $8.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2013 compared with $5.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2012.

Other non-operating expenses increased by approximately $36,000 for the fourth quarter of 2013 compared with the comparable quarter in 2012. This increase was primarily a result of non-cash financing costs incurred during the current period totaling approximately $396,000, partially offset by a decrease in interest expense of approximately $520,000 and loss on extinguishment of debt of approximately $197,000.

As a result, net loss for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $8.4 million, or $0.06 per basic and diluted share, compared with a net loss of $5.7 million, or $0.06 per basic and diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2012.
