Polydex Pharmaceuticals Issues Third Quarter Financial Report

/ Source: GlobeNewswire

TORONTO, Dec. 15, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Polydex Pharmaceuticals Limited (Pink Sheets:POLXF) reports financial results for its third fiscal quarter, the three-month period ended October 31, 2010.

Management's diligent focus on methods to improve profitability has resulted in a continued trend of reduced expenses and with only a marginal decrease in sales, has successfully reduced the net loss for this reporting period.

Specific concentration on new and established customers in Europe is resulting in increased orders from this region, including newly defined interest from new potential customers of a competitor. Further, a new potential customer has indicated a need for a significant supply of raw dextran to meet their manufacturing requirements, and Management looks forward to the nurturing and development of these emerging relationships.

With this new interest in the company's powdered products, Management will soon be able to bring online the recently installed spray dryer when necessary testing and documentation has been completed, in realization of the long-term strategic planning objectives embarked upon with the refurbishment of the production facilities in recent years.

The Company shares continue to be quoted on the Pink Sheet platform (), where the Company is currently identified as a Pink Quote OTCBB Transparent company, one that may be quoted both on the Pink Quote system and the Over The Counter Bulletin Board (OTCBB).

Polydex Pharmaceuticals Limited, based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, is engaged in the development, manufacture and marketing of biotechnology-based products for the human pharmaceutical market, and also manufactures bulk pharmaceutical intermediates for the worldwide veterinary pharmaceutical industry. Company website:
