SAN DIEGO, Oct. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Imprimis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: IMMY), a pharmaceutical company focused on the development and commercialization of proprietary compounded drug formulations, today announced that estimated revenue for its third quarter ending September 30, 2015 is approximately $2.7 million, over a 500% increase compared to $0.4 million reported in the third quarter 2014, and representing over a 35% increase compared to revenues of $1.97 million in second quarter 2015. This revenue estimate, which is unaudited, is based on the company's preliminary financial analysis.
Mark L. Baum, CEO, stated, "Demand for our Dropless Therapy™ and LessDrops™ combination topical eye drops continue to be strong and revenues for ophthalmology business are in line with our projections. While we are pleased that -- for the fourth quarter in a row -- our revenues have increased at least 25% quarter over quarter, our previous year-end revenue guidance for 2015 was dependent on the successful execution of our urology strategy during the third quarter. We remain confident about the future growth of our urology business; however, the growth in this business is approximately 60 days behind our initial projection and the delay has caused us to lower our 2015 revenue guidance. Importantly, we have developed and initiated an aggressive execution strategy that should fuel this business to get back on track to where we believe it should be performing. The opportunities for our ophthalmology, urology and sinus businesses are significant and we expect to see substantial revenue growth for Imprimis in 2016 and beyond."
Financial Outlook and Guidance
Imprimis now projects total revenue for 2015 to be approximately $9 - $11 million, compared to revenues of $1.6 million reported in 2014. Complete financial results for the third quarter 2015 and a business update will be announced on November 12, 2015 and discussed in a conference call following the close of market the same day.
