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, announced financial results for the second 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 $1.9 million and a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $0.03 per share for the three-month period ended July 2, 2011. As of July 2, 2011, cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities totaled over $2.0 million.
"We made substantial strides related to pTeroPure in the recent quarter, continuing to build a very strong foundation for the business expansion that is underway," stated Frank Jaksch, CEO and co-founder of ChromaDex. "Our results for the quarter did not yet reflect the business building accomplishments we achieved during the period, but we believe the foundation created, with pTeroPure achieving GRAS (generally recognized as safe) status, the upcoming launch of BluScience at GNC, as well as our licensing agreement with beverage industry giant Cott, places ChromaDex in a very strong position from which to grow long-term shareholder value. Beyond pTeroPure, we remain committed to growing our product and service offerings to include other novel ingredients with large market potential in the rapidly growing natural products industry. The recently announced in-license of intellectual property from Cornell, related to the unique Nicotinamide Riboside compound, is evidence of that continued focus."
