Second Quarter - Three Months Ended June 30, 2019:

  • Net revenues increased $66, or 75%, to $154 compared to net revenues of $88 for the three months ended June 30, 2018.

  • Gross profit for the three months ended June 30, 2019 increased $47 or 181% to $73, compared to $26 for the three months ended June 30, 2018.

  • Operating expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2019, increased $179 or 17% to $1,239 compared to $1,060 for the three months ended June 30, 2018. The increase was primarily due to the marketing of the Company's new products and the hiring of an in-house sales team that began in July 2018.
  • Net loss increased $141 or 14% to $1,175 for the three months ended June 30, 2019 compared to $1,034 for the three months ended June 30, 2018.

The increase was primarily due to an increase in net revenues of $253 for two new products launched in 2018, $106 for Yolked and $147 for Myos Canine Muscle Formula, offset by a decrease of $95 from the Company's old product lines.
  • Gross profit for the six months ended June 30, 2019 increased $109 or 210% to $161, compared to $52 for the six months ended June 30, 2018.

Liquidity:
As of June 30, 2019, the Company had cash of $1,158 and total assets of $4,519. Working capital increased $636 to $1,905 on June 30, 2019 compared to $1,269 at December 31, 2018. 

Business & Operational Highlights:

  • Announced positive top-line results from its randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study that was conducted at the University of California, Berkeley and the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, evaluating the impact of Fortetropin on the rate of muscle protein synthesis in older men and women (60-75 years of age). The study showed that Fortetropin significantly increased the fractional synthetic rate of muscle proteins relative to placebo.
  • Completed a randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled veterinary clinical trial at Kansas State University to evaluate the impact of Fortetropin on 100 dogs recovering from tibial plateau leveling osteotomy (TPLO) surgery. Dogs that received Fortetropin had reduced muscle atrophy and could exert more force with their operated limb relative to dogs that received a placebo. Further, dogs in the Fortetropin group maintained stable levels of myostatin following surgery while an increase in myostatin levels of ~10% was noted in dogs that received the placebo.
  • Our sponsored study at Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine evaluating the impact of Fortetropin on quality of life and activity in geriatric dogs was initiated and has recruited 17 of the 40 dogs as of June 30, 2019.
  • Signed an endorsement partnership with Women's World Cup Champion soccer player Carli Lloyd and NBA superstar, Aaron Gordon, who are both serving as endorsers of Yolked and will appear in multiple marketing campaigns.
  • Received US Patent # 10,165,785 titled, "Process for Producing a Composition for Increasing Muscle Mass" providing broad protection for the manufacturing process of Fortetropin.
  • Filed an international utility patent application (PCT/US2019/041279) titled, "Methods and Compositions for Improving Skeletal Muscle Protein Fractional Synthetic Rate".
  • Filed an international utility patent application (PCT/US2019/040103) titled, "Methods for Alleviating, Inhibiting or Reversing Muscle Disuse Atrophy in Mammals".

Management Commentary:
Joseph Mannello, Chief Executive Officer of MYOS, commented, "We are pleased with our strong financial results for the second quarter and first half of 2019, and the accelerating upward trajectory in sales. The constant drive in our various commercial initiatives increased our brand's reach and presence, growing our top line by 75% in the second quarter and 109% in the first half of 2019, respectively.

"Myos Canine Muscle Formula sales of $89 in the second quarter of 2019 were up 46% from $61 in the first quarter of 2019, showing continued growth. Myos Canine Muscle Formula sales in the first quarter of 2019 grew 85% from $33 in the fourth quarter of 2018. Moving forward, we expect continued growth in our veterinary segment as the positive results from our clinical study at Kansas State University become more widely known, which will be supported by an aggressive marketing campaign.

"In addition, the results of our recent UC Berkeley clinical study show that Fortetropin has remarkable potential for managing age-related muscle loss in older adults. Our portfolio continues to strengthen as our scientific and clinical research demonstrates the efficacy and safety of consuming Fortetropin to improve muscle health.

"We're excited about the course ahead for the second half of 2019 and beyond, and believe that the future looks exceedingly positive. We're confident we are well positioned to drive future growth in multiple market segments which will enable us to build a diversified business and deliver value for our shareholders," concluded Mr. Mannello.
