Investor Conference Call Slated for Thursday, November 7 at 4:15 PM EST

SOUTH EASTON, Mass., Nov. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Pressure BioSciences, Inc. (OTCQB: PBIO) ("PBI" or the "Company") today announced record financial results for the three and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2013 and provided a business update.

Total revenue for the third quarter of 2013 was $420,762 compared to $391,616 for the same period in 2012, a 7% increase.  Revenue from the sale of products and services was $327,958 for the third quarter of 2013 compared to $297,867 for the same period in 2012, an increase of 10%. Grant revenue for the third quarter of 2013 was $92,804 compared to $93,749 for the comparable period in 2012. Sales of consumables were $51,450 for the three months ended September 30, 2013 compared to $27,993 for the same period in 2012, an increase of 84%.

Operating loss for the third quarter of 2013 increased to $844,033, from $686,520 for the same period in 2012.  Contributing to this increase were costs associated with the expansion of our strategic marketing and sales alliance with Constant Systems and with our marketing and sales plan in general, with the development of our new High Throughput ("HT") and HUB880 Barocycler instruments, and quarter over quarter cost increases in patent, investor relations, and outside services.

Total revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 was $1,149,236 compared to $1,022,185 for the same period in 2012, a 12% increase.  Revenue from the sale of products and services was $746,050 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 compared to $687,023 for the same period in 2012, a 9% increase.  Sales of consumables generated revenue of $104,708 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 compared to $66,869 for the same period in 2012, an increase of 57%.

Operating loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 was $2,427,082 compared to $2,333,892 for the same period in 2012.

Loss per common share – basic and diluted – was $0.06 for the third quarter of 2013 compared to $0.09 for the same period in 2012.  Loss per common share – basic and diluted – was $0.28 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 compared to $0.34 for the same nine-month period of 2012. 

Richard T. Schumacher, President and CEO of PBI, said: "On June 4th, we announced a core technology breakthrough, specifically the achievement of proof-of-principle in our multi-year investment into the development of a high throughput ("HT") microwell system for our pressure cycling technology ("PCT") platform.  We said then, and believe it even more today, that this achievement is a 'game-changer' for PBI."

Mr. Schumacher continued: "We had two major goals for the 2013 third quarter.  First we wanted to show continued progress in implementing our aggressive sales and marketing plan. To that end, we expanded our strategic marketing and sales program with Constant Systems, we increased our social media presence, we revamped our corporate website, we increased our support of and training programs with our distributors, we increased our marketing presence in the life sciences area, and we increased our sales out-reach to potential users of the PCT system.  These efforts resulted in record instrument and consumable sales for the quarter."

Mr. Schumacher concluded: "Our second goal was to finish the design of the PCT-based HT system, begin to manufacture the first generation instruments, develop a plan for beta site testing by industry leaders, and to formulate the steps required for the commercial release of this "first-in-class" unique and enabling instrument system during the second quarter of 2014.  We believe we have achieved all parts of this goal."

Richard P. Thomley, Acting Chief Financial Officer of PBI, commented: "In addition to the measurable progress made in our technology platform, commercialization reach, and new product development, we also achieved strong financial results for the 2013 third quarter.  The more notable financial achievements include:

a. Record quarterly total revenue of $420,762
b. Record quarterly products and services revenue of $327,958
c. Record quarterly consumable products sales of $51,450
d. Record quarterly Shredder System sales of $50,480

We have now reported three consecutive quarters with total revenue exceeding the prior year period.  And with the strong start we have had in the first five weeks of Q4, we believe that Q4 2013 will be the fourth consecutive quarter that total revenue exceeds the prior year period.
