TORONTO, April 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Polydex Pharmaceuticals Limited (Pink Sheets: POLXF) (the “Company”) reports financial results for its fiscal year ended January 31, 2021. All figures are reported in U.S. dollars.

Management is satisfied with overall results given that we remain in a global pandemic. Our balance sheet remains strong which allowed us to discharge a five-year equipment loan. We also experienced no layoffs or plant shutdowns during these challenging times.
While a swine flu epidemic in China and in Germany resulted in decreased sales of liquid iron dextran, new orders for the company’s native dextran product and its line of powdered products increased early in fiscal 2022. The current order book for fiscal 2022 is promising for these products. Management looks forward to a recovery in the swine industry, and the related iron dextran sales later this year.
George Usher, President and CEO reported that significant orders for dextran sulphate were received in February 2021, noting that “with a production lag time of several months for that specialized product, we expect those orders will be delivered in the second quarter, essentially leaving the first quarter short of the sales we had hoped for.”
Mr. Usher continued, “We have been exploring several new industrial uses for our native dextran, which we believe has potential, partly because of its shorter production time and less government regulation,” adding that “we are currently discussing an annual contract for this product with one of our customers.”
