IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ChromaDex Corporation, (OTCBB: CDXC), an innovative natural products company that provides proprietary, science-based solutions and ingredients to the dietary supplement, food & beverage, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries, today announced financial results for the Third quarter of 2011. On a reported basis and calculated in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (U.S. GAAP), ChromaDex announced total revenues of approximately $1.8 million representing an 17% growth over prior year quarter and a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $0.03 per share for the three-month period ended October 1, 2011. As of October 1, 2011, cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities totaled over $2.0 million.
"The third quarter was very exciting for us with the launch of our BluScience™ retail line in GNC stores," stated Bill Spengler, President of ChromaDex. "In addition, the company recently received purchase orders from a tier one national Drug Chain which represents the first step in our 2012 launch of BluScience into additional mass market channels."
Additional Financial Results & Notes
On a reported basis, ChromaDex recorded revenue of $1,827,568 during the third quarter of 2011 as compared to $1,562,352 for the same period in 2010.
