Arcadia Biosciences Announces Second-Quarter Results

Arcadia Biosciences, an agricultural technology company with more than 50 pipeline products focused on generating higher yields for farmers through controlling abiotic stress in plants, releases its financial and business results for second-quarter and first-half 2015.
The company’s loss from operations of $3.5 million in the second quarter of 2015 was a 29 percent improvement over the loss from operations in the second quarter of 2014, as a result of slightly higher product and license revenues and a lower level of operating expenses. For the first half of 2015, the operating loss of $7.3 million was a 4 percent improvement on a comparative basis, as reduced operating expenses offset lower revenues.
“Operating performance from the first half of the year and our first quarter as a public company are in line with our expectations, and we are comfortable with our relatively stable level of revenues and expenses in the near-term,” says Eric Rey, president and CEO of Arcadia. “Longer-term, our financial success will be a function of our ability to advance our later-stage pipeline products toward commercialization while continuing to carefully manage operating expenses.”
