LA JOLLA, Calif., April 29, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MyDx, Inc. (OTCQB:MYDX), producer of its patented MyDx™ (My Diagnostic) product line, the first battery operated, handheld, chemical analyzer for consumers, today reported its fourth quarter and fiscal year 2015 results and provided an updated 2016 outlook.

 

Company Reports Record Fourth Quarter 2015 Financial Results

 

For the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2015, the Company reported revenues of $164,216 compared with zero a year ago when it was still in the research and development stage. Following its third quarter 2015 launch of its MyDx Analyzer, the Company’s subsequent fourth quarter represented its first full quarter of revenues, nearly all of which were sold directly to consumers via the Company’s website at https://www.cdxlife.com/cdxshop/.

 

Sequentially, MyDx fourth quarter revenues more than doubled from its third quarter 2015 calendar revenues of nearly $76,000 (reported Q3 revenues of $219,180 included nearly $143,000 in previously unrecognized revenues from pre-orders secured since CannaDx was launched in 2014 on Indiegogo).

MyDx Sees Strong Growth in 2016

 

The Company is seeing strong growth continuing throughout 2016 as its previously announced distribution deal with Nanolux Technology begins to drive sales in the current quarter. MyDx is confident it will complete similar distribution agreements to penetrate the legal cannabis dispensary market in the weeks and months ahead. Pennsylvania this month enacted a comprehensive medical marijuana bill, becoming the 24th US state, plus Washington D.C., to do so.

 

 

 

 

The MyDx Analyzer with CannaDx Sensor services the astronomically growing multi-billion dollar legal cannabis industry with the first portable cannabis testing device for consumers that is sleek, futuristic and delivers timely results at the lowest retail price available. Early results indicate CannaDx has practically unlimited sales potential fueled in no small part by the June 2015 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association of 75 edible cannabis products sold in Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles that found 83% of them mislabeled the THC content.1

 

Commenting on the outlook for 2016, Daniel R. Yazbeck, MyDx Chairman and CEO, said, “Having signed our first major distribution deal for the CannaDx earlier this month, initially valued at more than $4 million, we’re excited with the promise that our revolutionary multi-use MyDx Analyzer holds to empower consumers to take responsibility for what is perhaps the single-most important influence on our health and longevity – what we eat, drink and inhale.”

 

Trust & Verify™

 

“The macro environment could not be more favorable,” Mr. Yazbeck added. “The US healthcare system is strained, while doctors spend less and less time with patients. GMOs, heavy metals, the Flint, Michigan water crisis – 168 million2 US boomers and millennials are educating themselves on the near and long-term physical and mental health hazards of the chemicals added to or toxins sprayed on our produce as well as the pollutants and allergens in the air we breathe and water we drink. Increasingly, consumers don’t trust organic to be organic, or product labels to be accurate. It is why our motto at MyDx is, Trust & Verify™.”

 

“To stay healthy we are rapidly learning to take much greater responsibility for our own health, and the multi-use MyDx Analyzer is an indispensable tool to ensure the integrity of what we put in our bodies. Accordingly, we are closely evaluating the addressable markets and related chemical composition of commonly consumed products as we steadily push the next three MyDx sensors through our development pipeline. Anticipating a year of strong sales growth ahead, we are actively reconfiguring our manufacturing resources to greatly increase our capacity and lower costs. It is an exciting time at MyDx, and we’re deeply gratified to be part of ‘the solution,’” Mr. Yazbeck concluded.
