ABMC Interim Chief Executive Officer Melissa A. Waterhouse stated, “I am
pleased to report our first quarter of net income for the first time in many
years. From a sales perspective, organic growth partially offset the loss of
oral fluid workplace sales in the first quarter 2014. Typically workplace oral
fluid sales accounted for approximately 15% of our sales, but sales only
declined 3.8% in the first quarter 2014. This is a result of our refocus on
forensic oral fluid sales and sales of our urine-based products to other core

Waterhouse continued, “Expenses are under control and we are continuing to
take actions to bring a new urine-based drug test to market; this new product
will be ideal for the clinical and pain management markets, as well as the
criminal justice market. Strategic opportunities are still being considered
and evaluated; this includes a possible restructure of debt which could
further strengthen our financial condition.”
