TYSONS CORNER, Va., Feb. 3, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – ScripsAmerica, Inc. (OTCBB:SCRC) today announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Main Avenue Pharmacy, reported $3,488,099 in approved orders during the month of January 2015.
ScripsAmerica’s specialty pharmacy reported over $5 million in monthly approved orders for four straight months to close 2014. Management attributes the decrease in monthly orders to annual sales cycles experienced in the prescription drug market as well as the fact that its pharmacy was closed for five days during January due to holidays and inclement weather.
“During the months of January and February, it is typical for orders in our business to see a decline because medical insurance deductibles reset at the beginning of each calendar year, causing prescription reimbursement to drop. In spite of this effect coupled with the fact that Main Avenue lost five business days in January, which is a significant amount, we were still able to generate nearly $3.5 million in monthly approved orders which the Company believes is strong, considering all of these factors,” CEO of ScripsAmerica, Bob Schneiderman, commented.
“Following the month of February, Scrips expects Main Avenue Pharmacy’s monthly orders to get back on track,” added Schneiderman.
