SDIX Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2010 Results Fourth Quarter Revenues Increase 19% Year-Over-Year Revenues Increase 4% to $28.3 Million Year-Over-Year Net Loss Decreases to $963,000 Business Wire NEWARK, Del. -- March 03, 2011 SDIX (Nasdaq: SDIX), a leading provider of biotechnology-based products and services for a broad range of life science, biotechnology, diagnostic and food safety applications, today reported financial results for the quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2010. Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2010 were $7.4 million, increasing 19% from $6.2 million for the same period in 2009. Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $260,000, compared to a net loss of $65,000 in 2009. Full year 2010 revenues were $28.3 million, increasing 4% from $27.2 million in 2009. This overall growth resulted from increased revenues in SDIX’s core focus areas of Life Science and Food Safety. Revenues in both of these markets increased 7% in 2010 as compared to 2009. Net loss for the year was $963,000 in 2010, down from $1.7 million in 2009. Recent Highlights *RapidChek® SELECT™ Salmonella Enteritidis (SE) Test System Received AOAC Certification for Poultry Houses, Eggs, and Chicken Rinses – RapidChek SELECT SE test earned Performance-Tested Methods (PTM) Certification, validating the new test as equivalent to the FDA methodology for detecting SE in poultry house environments and pooled eggs. Competitive advantages over existing commercial tests can include faster time to results, increased sensitivity and accuracy, and reduced associated costs. *RapidChek® SELECT™ Salmonella 24-hour Test System Received AOAC Certification for Food Processing Environmental Testing – RapidChek SELECT Salmonella 24-hour test earned PTM certification as an analytical method for detecting Salmonella species on environmental surfaces including stainless steel, concrete, plastic and rubber. This test can help food processors quickly and accurately identify if Salmonella is present in their facilities before it can cross-contaminate food during production. *FDA Awards RapidChek® SELECT™ Salmonella Enteritidis (SE) Test System Method Equivalency for Salmonella Enteritidis Detection in Poultry Houses and Eggs – RapidChek SELECT SE test was reviewed by the FDA and determined to be equivalent in accuracy, precision and sensitivity to their current standard methods for poultry house environmental drag swabs and pooled egg testing. Francis DiNuzzo, SDIX’s President and CEO, commented, “We continue to see progress resulting from our strategic shift to focus on the Life Science and Food Safety markets. Over the past year, aligned with this strategic shift, we enhanced our leadership team, entered into new partnerships, updated our corporate name, and improved efficiencies by streamlining processes and scaling operations. Resulting from these efforts, SDIX not only saw overall margin improvements, but also saw continued quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year revenue growth. We anticipate continued growth in our Life Science and Food Safety revenues in the year ahead as we solidify our presence as a leading solutions provider to customers in these markets. We look forward to leveraging our proprietary Life Science technologies through market share growth in core Life Science market segments and additional revenue-generating collaborations. In addition, we expect to see continued growth driven by expansion of our Food Safety portfolio and international channels.” Financials Gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $4.1 million, as compared to $3.2 million for the same period in 2009. Gross margins improved to 56% for the fourth quarter of 2010, compared to 51% for the same period in 2009. Gross profit for the year ended December 31, 2010 was $16.6 million, as compared to $14.7 million for 2009. Gross margins improved to 58% for 2010, compared to 54% in 2009. Operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2010 increased to $4.4 million, compared to $3.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2009. Operating expenses for the year ended December 31, 2010 increased to $17.5 million, compared to $16.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2009. This increase primarily resulted from increased R&D costs associated with new programs and increased SG&A costs associated with building up the Company’s sales and marketing infrastructure. While operating loss for the fourth quarter rose to $261,000, as compared to $175,000 for the fourth quarter of 2009, as a result of increased R&D spending; total operating loss for 2010 fell to $929,000, as compared to $1.7 million in 2009. Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2010 increased to $260,000, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $65,000, or $0.00 per diluted share, for the same period in 2009. Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2010 fell to $963,000, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $1.7 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, for the year ended December 31, 2009. Life Science Revenues Life Science revenues were $4.2 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2010, an increase of 38% from $3.0 million for the same period in 2009. This increase was due partially to increased In-Vitro Diagnostics (“IVD”) revenues, which tend to vary quarter to quarter due to customer buying patterns, coupled with increases in non-IVD business. Life Science revenues for the year ended December 31, 2010 increased 7% to $15.4 million, as compared to $14.3 million for 2009. This growth resulted from both IVD and non-IVD revenues increasing year-over-year as the Company continued to make inroads in the biopharma market. Kit Revenues Food Safety revenues were $1.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2010, increasing 24% from $1.3 million for the same period in 2009. Food Safety revenues for the year ended December 31, 2010 were $5.9 million, a 7% increase from $5.5 million for 2009. Revenue gains in the Food Safety business primarily resulted from the Company’s E. coli and Salmonella test systems. Additionally year-over-year revenues for Ag-GMO Products and Water & Environmental Products were $2.2 million and $4.8 million respectively, remaining relatively consistent with 2009. Balance Sheet The Company completed the year ended December 31, 2010 with $8.8 million in available and restricted cash and stockholders’ equity of $19.7 million.
