IsoRay, Inc. (NYSE MKT: ISR), a medical technology company and innovator in seed brachytherapy and medical radioisotope applications for brain cancer, lung cancer, head and neck cancer, prostate cancer and gynecologic ("gyn") cancer, announced its financial results for the quarter and nine months ended March 31, 2014.
While substantially all of our outstanding warrants were exercised in the quarter ended March 31, 2014, generating cash proceeds in excess of $5,961,000, we still have over 400,000 warrants outstanding that result in derivative liability. The loss per share increase of 3¢ per share for the quarter and 5¢ per share for the nine month period are attributable to the non-cash derivative liability increase caused by the increase in our common stock price for the quarter.
Prostate treatment revenues constituting approximately 83% of all revenue were unchanged in the nine month period and slightly lower in the quarter, but in line with the continued national market weakness for all prostate treatment modalities. Low risk prostate patients increasingly are engaging in "watchful waiting" before making a final decision as to what modality to choose. Management believes these patients often wait too long when a simple solution like IsoRay's Cesium-131 (Cs-131) can be an effective option when the cancer hasn't metastasized. With multiple institutions now reporting 5 year and 6 year study data showing unequaled biochemical control utilizing IsoRay's Cesium-131 in the treatment of prostate cancer, management believes Cs-131 can provide a solution for these patients.
IsoRay Chairman and CEO Dwight Babcock commented, "The recent publication of the first peer reviewed article showing positive results using Cs-131 in the treatment of gynecologic cancer reinforces our strategy to focus on expanding the use of Cs-131 and its unique isotope qualities to treat cancers in the prostate and other body sites, such as brain cancer, head and neck cancer, lung cancer and gyn cancers, while providing patients with a better quality of life than many competing treatments. As the Company continues to accumulate peer reviewed articles reporting the success of Cs-131, we expect to see increasing acceptance of Cs-131 in the medical community that should lead to revenue growth. The marketing of new radioactive medical devices is a process that has numerous steps and is a long term process requiring patient study data to mature before submission of peer reviewed articles."
Babcock further said, "IsoRay's customers are continuing to use our products with new patients even though they have successfully reached their required patient enrollments to produce statistically relevant results. These early adopters are seeing successful outcomes from the application of Cs-131 in treating their patients and we are encouraged that they continue to order products for their new patients."
IsoRay's management continues to seek to maintain the highest manufacturing standards and quality assurance processes, which are reviewed periodically by U.S. and international regulatory agencies. IsoRay has never had any negative findings reported by such reviews. Presently IsoRay has no debt and sufficient cash and cash equivalents to meet its anticipated needs for the next several years. Management continues to invest in research and development such as the liquid form of the Cs-131 isotope. The Company continues to focus on Cs-131's efficacy for various cancers located throughout the body and we expect this to have a direct impact on our overall revenue growth with an expanding array of non-prostate cancer treatments.
