Companies mentioned in this article: Inergetics, Inc.

NEWARK, N.J., Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Inergetics, Inc. (OTCBB: NRTI), a leading developer of a diverse range of best-in-class nutraceuticals, today filed its 10Q for the second quarter ending June 30, 2014.

    --  Total revenues generated from the sales of Martha Stewart(TM)
        Essentials, Surgex® Sports Nutrition, Bikini Ready®, SlimTrim(TM), and
        Private Label product lines for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 totaled
        $523,615, an increase of 685% from the quarter ended June 30, 2013 which
        totaled $66,667.
    --  Gross profit for the quarter amounted to $213,178 for a 41% gross
        margin. Gross profit increased $196,986 or 1,217% for the quarter ended
        June 30, 2014 compared to $16,192 for the quarter ended June 30, 2013.
    --  After research and development cost and selling, general and
        administrative expenses of $1,564,032, an operating loss of $1,350,854
        was realized for the quarter. Operating losses increased $500,259
        compared to the first quarter of 2013. The majority of the increase was
        due to the increase in royalty payments and promotion and marketing
        costs to support the retail launch of certain products.
    --  The net result for the quarter was a loss of $1,564,212 or $0.02 per
        share, including a preferred dividend on the Series G stock in the
        amount of $321,525, compared to a loss of $1,234,697 or $0.02 per share
        for the second quarter of 2013. The net loss increased by $329,515
        compared to the second quarter of 2013, primarily due to an increase in
        selling, general and administrative expenses associated with the
        expansion of the company's product lines as well as increased interest
        expense associated with additional debt outstanding.

"Inergetics continues to mark significant progress in building a world-class nutraceuticals company whose innovative products address a range of consumer needs," said Mike James, CEO. "Our focus on increasing the U.S. and international wholesale and retail distribution as well as the overall sales ramp for our growing portfolio of vitamins, supplements and consumer products is gaining stronger momentum across the business. At the same time, we continue to invest in future growth through improved supply chain infrastructure, brand development and new products, including the development of a line of next generation natural cannabidiol-based (CBD) supplements that we expect to bring to market in 2015."

Revenue recognition

Revenue is recognized upon shipment to various retail outlet customers when all performance obligations are met and collectability is reasonably assured. Upon shipment to specific retail customers with the right of return, Inergetics defers revenues as returns are not reasonably estimable. As of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, deferred revenue totaled $1,075,182 and $1,269,470, respectively.

"The positive response we are receiving from Food, Drug, Mass, Health & Specialty retail outlets is a direct result of the superior product offerings we are bringing to market and the consumer demand they are generating," added Mr. James. "We are continuing to gain further traction for these best-in-class brands as we have already expanded distribution by nearly 2,000 doors in the first half of the third quarter alone. As market penetration grows deeper and broader across our established and new brands, my confidence in the management team's ability to sustain this trajectory remains steadfast."
