Although results for the current quarter continue to reflect a soft market and persisting problems with the global economy as a whole, a number of product orders filled in the third quarter weren’t shipped until the fourth quarter, resulting in lower sales this quarter. Management’s continued cautious approach to cash management has allowed the company to weather these worldwide issues.


Management believes that the African Swine Fever may be abating, which may lead to increasing sales of Iron Dextran. Re-establishment of worldwide sales of this product remains a top priority going forward. New markets are emerging for the company’s powdered products, and Management foresees an increase in sales of these products in the coming months.

“We are hopeful that the recovery we are seeing in some aspects of the global economy may translate to increased sales of our products in the coming months,” said George Usher, President and CEO of Polydex Pharmaceuticals Limited. He continued, “African Swine Fever definitely impacted the entire swine industry and we are increasingly optimistic of the signs that its impact may be diminishing. As Iron Dextran is one of our higher volume products, this would certainly be a good start to recovery of sales and a return to profitability.”
