May 13, 2010

SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Derycz Scientific, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: DYSC), a company that is pioneering a fresh way of facilitating the flow of information from content publishers to enterprise customers and their constituents, released its financial results for the quarter and nine months ended March 31, 2010.

Financial and Operational Highlights for the quarter and nine months ended March 31, 2010, include:

  • Quarterly revenues increased 62% to $6.2 million in 2010 from $3.8 million in the same period 2009;

  • Quarterly EPS of $0.01 represents Derycz's second consecutive profitable quarter;
  • Nine-month income reached $22,000, or $0.00 per fully diluted share, for the period ended March 31, 2010, against a net loss of $244,000, or $0.02 per fully diluted share in the nine months ended March 31, 2009;
  • Derycz Scientific's subsidiary, Reprints Desk, named among "100 Companies That Matter Most in Knowledge Management" by KMWorld Magazine for the second consecutive year; and
  • Derycz Scientific was featured in Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Genetic Engineering and in Biotechnology News in articles on streamlining the FDA approval process.

Peter Derycz, President and CEO of Derycz Scientific, commented: "We are very pleased with our second consecutive profitable quarter.  Our revenue growth is very healthy, and we believe it will continue along this trajectory.  The Reprints Desk subsidiary is doing well, and the Pools Press subsidiary is solidly performing in its niche.  We anticipate that our fourth quarter results will continue along the current path of top- and bottom-line growth."

Quarterly Results of Operations

Our revenues increased 62% compared to the same period in 2009. We achieved revenue of $6,201,431 for the three months ended March 31, 2010, compared to revenue of $3,818,500 for the three months ended March 31, 2009.

Our general and administrative expenses increased 30% from $826,770 for the three months ended March 31, 2009 to $1,154,177 for the three months ended March 31, 2010. Pools' share of these expenses was approximately $52,000 for the 2010 period and $49,000 in the 2009 period. These expenses include Reprints' salary costs, which were $657,494 in the 2010 period and $499,099 in the 2009 period, an increase of $158,395 or 32%. Both our sales and marketing team and our information technology team have increased during the past year and we have added other additional employees as needed.  We continue to attempt to contain the expansion of our workforce. However, because of the expansion of our sales volume and in order to continue to develop our computer system, we expect to add a small number of new employees in the next year.

We recorded net income of $123,640 for the three months ended March 31, 2009 compared to net income of $93,705 for the three months ended March 31, 2010.

Mr. Derycz said, "We are proud to report two consecutive quarters of profitability.  This result is attributable to strong sales at Reprints during the 2010 period.  We hope to continue to be modestly profitable for the remainder of the 2010 fiscal year."

Nine-Month Results of Operations

Our revenues increased significantly from the same period in 2009. We achieved revenue of $18,575,589 for the nine months ended March 31, 2010, compared to revenue of $10,448,179 for the nine months ended March 31, 2009, an increase of 78%.

Our general and administrative expenses increased 38% from $2,409,883 for the nine months ended March 31, 2009 to $3,333,872 for the nine months ended March 31, 2010. Pools' share of these expenses was approximately $174,000 in the 2009 period and $166,000 during the 2010 period. These expenses include Reprints' salary costs, which were $1,352,533 in the 2009 period and $1,911,565 in the 2010 period, an increase of $559,032 or 41%.  These costs have increased at a slower rate than our revenues as we have tried to limit our hiring of new employees and to contain other costs.

As a result of the foregoing, Derycz recorded net income of $16,288 for the nine months ended March 31, 2010 compared to a net loss of $243,492 for the nine months ended March 31, 2009.

As of March 31, 2010, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $2,248,767, compared to $1,854,093 as of March 31, 2009. This increase is primarily attributable to an increase in accounts payable of $1,020,733 and a decrease in prepaid royalties of $182,210, partially offset by an increase in accounts receivable of $638,611.  The Company believes that its current cash resources will be sufficient to sustain current operations for at least one year.
