LA JOLLA, Calif., May 20, 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 financial results for its first quarter of 2016 ended March 31, 2016 and provided an updated positive outlook for the current fiscal year.

Company Reports First Quarter 2016 Financial Results

For the first quarter ended March 31, 2016, the Company reported that revenues of $161,000 compared with zero a year ago when it was still in the research and development stage. The Company’s first quarter of 2016 represents its third full quarter of revenues, nearly all of which were sold directly to consumers via the Company’s website at www.cdxlife.com/cdxshop/.

In the first quarter of 2016, the Company’s net loss narrowed to ($544,510) year over year compared with a net loss of ($2.1 million) in the year-ago quarter.

MyDx Enters Into Initial $4 Million Distribution Deal in First Quarter of 2016

The Company’s $4 million distribution agreement with Nanolux Technology, Inc., announced on April 5, 2016, requires far higher levels of production along with training and dissemination of supporting marketing materials to upwards of 1,000 separate retailers nationwide of indoor agricultural equipment featuring Nanolux’s state of the art products – all of which is in process and being aggressively implemented.

MyDx Revenues to Ramp-Up Beginning in the Current Second Quarter

With its Nanolux distribution agreement beginning to ramp-up in the current quarter, the Company is aggressively advancing the reconfiguration of its manufacturing capacity and supply chain management to achieve greater scale and efficiency.

With the valuable legal cannabis grower prosumer market covered nationally through Nanolux, management is actively pursuing similar distribution deals on the legal marijuana dispensary side of the business to cover that important prosumer market vertical. Rather than expend management resources on a large number of small such distribution deals, it is focused on creating one or more large regional or national distribution agreements that provide scale and accelerate the Company’s business plan to build a strong national brand for its proprietary hand-held chemical analyzer beginning with its CannaDx Sensor.

The Company is confident that the growing demand for its unique, patented MyDx Analyzer with the CannaDx Sensor is strongly supported by both the domestic and international markets. While national surveys show consumer attitudes toward cannabis consumption trending positively following Colorado’s pioneering and increasingly successful “experiment” with legalized, regulated recreational cannabis sales, a substantial number of state ballot initiatives to legalize cannabis sales are scheduled for the U.S. November election.

MyDx CEO Sees Company Reaching Profitability Ahead of Plan in 2016

The Company is continuing to streamline its R&D, sales and marketing, and general and administrative expenses as it successfully transitions from a complete R&D company to a sales and marketing organization with a strong pipeline of new Analyzer sensors in its development pipeline through the end of 2017.

Commenting on his updated outlook for 2016, Daniel R. Yazbeck, MyDx Chairman and CEO, said, “To get the most bang for our buck, we plan to continue to leverage our marketing dollars through public and media relations, which has returned a high ROI to date, as well as in direct support of major distribution agreements that will produce a positive piggyback effect on consumer direct sales as well.”

“Global sales remain strong given that we spend minimal marketing dollars outside the U.S. In addition to the U.S., we are evaluating several countries for major distribution agreements as well as localized marketing initiatives for cannabis friendly tradeshows, events and targeted advertising opportunities abroad,” Mr. Yazbeck said. “All of which supports our updated outlook for reaching profitability by year-end 2016.”
