Cryoport’s Chief Executive Officer, Jerrell Shelton, commented, “I'm pleased to report that in fiscal 2013, we moved forward on all fronts. We are seeing the beginning of the positive impact of our expanded customer-centric business model offering a full range of cold chain logistics solutions. Sales growth accelerated throughout fiscal 2013 due to consistent performance from our sales team and some large client wins. We have had six consecutive quarters of revenue growth, doubled our customer base over the past twelve months, continued to penetrate the In Vitro Fertilization market, and are expanding partnerships to extend Cryoport’s sales and marketing reach. Those trends are continuing in fiscal 2014, and based on our current annualized revenue run rate of $1.8 million, planning discussions with clients, and the eventual raising of additional capital, we expect revenue in fiscal 2014 to grow at an accelerated pace.
“Moving forward, we will maintain our long-term view of the market opportunity and stay true to our strategic plan. Our goal is to be the leading provider of logistics services to the biotech and life sciences industries. We are successfully transitioning from a ‘one service fits all’ approach to being a logistics solutions company developing customized plans to meet client-defined needs. In addition to sales of our basic turnkey solution, our customer-integrated solution is being particularly well received, and we also have customers utilizing our customer-staged, customer-managed, and distribution partner models. We are experiencing increased attention from integrators and freight forwarders, which provides us with additional opportunities for revenue producing partnerships. We are also in the early stages of making inroads into animal husbandry.
"In fiscal 2014 and beyond, I believe we can drive shareholder value by becoming even more effective in increasing market awareness, serving customer needs, efficiently managing expenses, and prudently investing capital raised in support of our growth plans. The Cryoport team is motivated for success.”
Robert Stefanovich, Chief Financial Officer, said, "In addition to our new customer growth, our fiscal 2013 results reflect our diligence on the management of expenses. We are continually examining all opportunities to better align our costs with revenue generation.”
The Company intends to report full financial results for fiscal 2013 on Form 10K during the last week of June 2013.
