20:00 EDT 12 Aug 2015 | Marketwired

LONE TREE, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/13/15 -- Zynex, Inc.
(OTCQB: ZYXI), an innovative medical technology company specializing in the manufacture and sale of non-invasive medical devices for pain management, stroke rehabilitation, neuro diagnostics, cardiac monitoring and compound pharmacy, announced today its second quarter 2015 financial results.

President and CEO Commentary:

Thomas Sandgaard, CEO commented: "We made excellent progress in the electrotherapy segment during the second quarter and are seeing the benefits from the nationwide rollout of our EZ Rx order program. Orders for compound pharmacy transdermal pain creams were negatively impacted by TRICARE ceasing reimbursement early in the second quarter. Revenue has stabilized over the past few quarters at just over $3.0 million. Based on the recent order and billing trend, we anticipate total net revenue for the third quarter of 2015 to be in the range of $3.2 to $3.4 million with positive earnings before interest, taxes depreciation and amortization."

Sandgaard continued: "We continue to be very optimistic about the development of our new Blood Volume Monitor. We completed building the first production units and have recently signed an agreement for placement of units with hospitals for field testing and validation. We expect to submit our complete application to the FDA by the end of the third quarter."

Summary of Financial Results:

The Company's net revenue was $3,073,000 for the second quarter of 2015, compared to $1,349,000 for the second quarter of 2014. For the six month period of 2015, net revenue was $6,256,000 compared to $4,516,000 in the same 2014 period. The net revenue increases for both the three and six month periods reflect higher sales of transdermal pain creams, which were $200,000 higher in the second quarter and $585,000 higher during the six month 2015 period. In the previous year second quarter 2014 and six month period, revenue was negatively impacted by a backlog of consumable supplies which shifted the revenue into the third quarter 2014 period.

The Company reported Selling, General and Administrative ("SG&A") expenses of $2,270,000 for the second quarter of 2015, compared to $2,947,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, a 22% reduction. For the six months ended June 30, 2015, SG&A expenses were $4,980,000 compared to $6,403,000 in the 2014 period. Decreases in the Company's SG&A expenses are primarily attributable to reduced operating expenses, headcount reductions, and lower building rent.

For the second quarter 2015, the Company reported a net loss of $493,000, or $0.02 per share, compared to a net loss of $5,553,000, or $0.18 per share in 2014. For the six months ended June 30, 2015, the Company reported a net loss of $1,389,000, or $0.04 per share, compared to a net loss of $6,983,000, or $0.22 per share in 2014.

The Company's line of credit balance as of June 30, 2015 was $4,620,000, compared to $4,442,000 at December 31, 2014.
