TYSONS CORNER, May 05, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) — ScripsAmerica, Inc. (OTCBB:SCRC) today announced that its managed specialty pharmacy reported $958,234 in prescription sales during the month of April, representing a 94% increase in monthly revenue over March. The specialty pharmacy, which focuses on compounding topical creams, has generated a total of $1,600,501 in sales since ScripsAmerica entered an agreement to manage its operations in exchange for a very significant percentage of its revenues in February. April’s figures give the pharmacy an annual run rate of $11.5 million.
Bob Schneiderman, the Company’s CEO, stated, “We are very pleased to report that ScripsAmerica’s managed specialty pharmacy set a revenue record in April, nearly doubling its sales from March. This demonstrates significant rapid revenue growth and further, we believe that the Company has not nearly tapped the potential of this endeavor. There are several factors that we believe will drive steady revenue growth for this pharmacy.”
“First, topical creams are experiencing growing demand as an effective alternative to pills that can be more easily ingested in higher doses than originally prescribed. Secondly, our pharmacy utilizes a new system to process prescriptions that have greatly increased its efficiency, sales, profitability, etc. Finally, under our management, the specialty pharmacy has applied for licensing in additional states, which will enable continued growth in both our revenues and profits from this operation,” continued Schneiderman.
