BOULDER, CO / ACCESSWIRE / November 13, 2023 / Sonoma Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:SNOA), a global healthcare leader developing and producing stabilized hypochlorous acid (HOCl) products for a wide range of applications, including wound, eye, oral and nasal care, dermatological conditions, podiatry, animal health care and non-toxic disinfectants, today announced financial results for its second fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2023.

"In the second quarter of our fiscal year 2024, we continued to reduce costs while maintaining our diligent efforts to expand sales and increase our presence in U.S. and international markets," said Amy Trombly, CEO of Sonoma. "Though our U.S. business saw a decline in consumer sales compared to the prior year, primarily due to softening demand for animal health care products, European revenues have continued to increase, and we see opportunities for further growth and demand for our products both in the U.S. and internationally."

Business Highlights

Sonoma continued to identify and meet customer needs by introducing new products and expanding distribution:

  • On November 3, 2023, Sonoma launched its intraoperative pulse lavage irrigation treatment in the United States, a new application of its wound care technology developed in response to an unmet need for a non-toxic irrigation solution that can prevent infection and improve healing time. Hospitals in Europe began trial use of the pulse lavage irrigation treatment, containing Sonoma's Microcyn® Technology, in September 2023.
  • On August 15, 2023, Sonoma announced that Reliefacyn® Advanced Itch-Burn-Rash-Pain Relief Hydrogel had received the National Eczema Association (NEA) Seal of Acceptance™.
  • On August 3, 2023, Sonoma announced the establishment of a Scientific Advisory Board, which will serve to inform the company's research and development activities, efforts to address areas of unmet need, and potential new areas of interest.

Results for the Quarter Ended September 30, 2023

Total revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2023 of $2.7 million decreased by $0.6 million, or 18%, as compared to $3.3 million for the same period last year. Revenues in the United States declined 39% primarily as a result of a decline in animal health over-the counter demand. Revenues in Europe increased 3% compared to the same period last year as the result of increased demand for Sonoma's products. Revenues decreased in Asia and increased in Rest of World when compared to the same period last year. These revenues tend to be choppy when viewed on a quarterly basis due to customers placing larger, but less frequent, orders to benefit from quantity discounts and reduced shipping costs when ordering larger quantities.

During the quarter ended September 30, 2023, Sonoma reported revenues of $2.7 million and cost of revenues of $1.7 million resulting in gross profit of $1.0 million, or 36% of revenue, compared to a gross profit of $1.5 million, or 46% of revenue in the same period last year. The decline is the result of changes in product mix and territories to which products are shipped.

Total operating expenses during the quarter ended September 30, 2023 were $2.2 million decreased as compared to the same period in the prior year.

Results for the Six Months Ended September 30, 2023

Total revenues for the six months ended September 30, 2023 of $6.2 million decreased by $1.1 million, or 16%, as compared to $7.3 million for the same period last year. In the six months ended September 30, 2023, Sonoma sold machinery to a customer in Latin America for $750,000, which management expects to be a one-time event. Excluding that event, revenue for the six months ended September 30, 2023 decreased by $0.4 million, or 6%, compared to the same period last year. Revenues in the United States declined 24% primarily as a result of a decline in animal health over-the-counter demand. Revenues in Europe increased 13% compared to the same period last year as the result of increased demand for Sonoma's products. Revenues decreased in Asia and Rest of World when compared to the same period last year. These revenues tend to be choppy when viewed on a quarterly basis due to customers placing larger, but less frequent, orders to benefit from quantity discounts and reduced shipping costs when ordering larger quantities.

During the six months ended September 30, 2023, Sonoma reported revenues of $6.2 million and cost of revenues of $4.0 million resulting in gross profit of $2.2 million, or 36% of revenue, compared to a gross profit of $3.2 million, or 44% of revenue in the same period last year. The decline is the result of the sale of machinery in Latin America in 2022, which management expects to be a one-time event, and changes in product mix and territories to which products are shipped.

Total operating expenses during the six months ended September 30, 2023 were $4.6 million decreased as compared to the same period in the prior year.

Net loss for six months ended September 30, 2023 of $2.9 million increased by $1.0 million, or 52%, when compared to a net loss of $1.9 million for the six months ended September 30, 2023. The increase in net loss is primarily related to the one-time event equipment sale in Latin America in 2022 as well as the factors discussed above. EBITDA loss for the six months ended September 30, 2023 of $2.0 million increased $0.4 million, compared to an EBITDA loss of $1.6 million for the same period last year.

As of September 30, 2023, Sonoma had cash and cash equivalents of $2.1 million.
