Cryoport Increases Revenues By 149% For The First Nine Months of Fiscal 2014

Cryoport, Inc. (OTCBB: CYRX) today announced financial results for the quarter and nine months ended December 31, 2013.

Net revenues were $1.8 million for the nine months ended December 31, 2013, as compared to $732,000 for the nine months ended December 31, 2012. The 149% increase was primarily driven by Cryoport’s Integrated Solution and overall growth in the number of customers using Cryoport Express® Solutions compared to the same period in the prior year.

Gross margin for the nine months ended December 31, 2013 was 16% of net revenues, or $294,000, as compared to a gross loss of 46% of net revenues, or $335,000, for the nine months ended December 31, 2012. Cost of revenues for the nine months ended December 31, 2013 was 84% of net revenues, or $1.5 million, as compared to 146% of net revenues, or $1.1 million for the nine months ended December 31, 2012 which demonstrates continued improvement of Cryoport’s positive gross margin.

Cryoport’s Chief Executive Officer, Jerrell Shelton, commented, “I'm pleased to report continued revenue and gross profit growth for the quarter and the first nine months of our fiscal year. Our sales and marketing strategies are gaining momentum as evidenced by our reported revenue and continue to be fueled by a very active and growing sales pipeline. As reported in a press release earlier this month, we entered into a strategic alliance with Liventa Bioscience. This alliance is aimed at serving the many points of orthopedic care delivery with Liventa Bioscience’s cell-based, advanced biologics tissue forms. This exclusive agreement combines Cryoport’s proprietary, purpose-built cold chain logistics solutions for cell based and advanced biologic tissue forms with Liventa Bioscience’s distribution capability to ‘point-of-use’ US-based orthopedic care providers.

“In addition, we continue to move forward with our ‘powered by CryoportSM' partnering strategy designed to expand our sales and marketing reach as well as to increase the awareness of our solutions in the life sciences community. More and more companies have started relying on our validated and technology-centric solutions and expertise in time- and temperature-sensitive logistics. We now have experienced nine consecutive quarters of revenue growth and expect to further accelerate our sales trajectory as implied by our current momentum.

“Moving forward, we expect to maintain our long-term view of the market opportunity and stay true to our strategic plan. Our goal is to be the leading provider of logistics solutions to the life sciences industry. We are successfully transitioning from a ‘one service fits all’ approach to being a ‘logistics solutions company’ developing customized plans to meet client-defined needs. In addition to sales of our basic turnkey solution, our customer-integrated solution is being particularly well received, and we also have customers utilizing our customer-staged, customer-managed, and distribution partner models. Our central role in cold chain logistics in this fast growing market continues to be validated by the increasing attention we receive from integrators, specialty couriers, and freight forwarders; all of which provides us with additional opportunities for revenue producing partnerships.

“We have more than doubled our customer base over the past nine months and are in the early adoption stages with a number of larger life sciences companies. Revenues related to reproductive medicine, in-vitro fertilization in particular, are increasing as is our animal husbandry business. During this current fiscal 2014 and beyond, I believe we will continue to drive shareholder value by becoming even more effective in increasing market awareness, closing sales, serving customer needs, efficiently managing expenses, and prudently investing capital in support of our growth plans. Our Cryoport team is indefatigably motivated for success.”
