Dear shareholders and friends,
U.S. Stem Cell Inc. continues to innovate and grow, making our mark in the regenerative medicine field by developing a number of therapies and products for patients suffering from degenerative conditions. Our three main operating divisions (U.S. Stem Cell Training, VetBiologics, and U.S. Stem Cell Clinic), focus on the development and commercialization of cell-based therapies that repair and replace damaged tissues, cells, and organs, restoring them to their normal functions.
Because of our dedication to the field, we have been able to help patients who previously had very few options available to them. We have had success helping patients with degenerative conditions, markedly demonstrated in our Traumatic Brain Injury patients who’ve shown great results. We have not only been able to treat thousands of patients, but also have been actively involved in training physicians in our field, and have made meaningful contributions to international guidelines for stem cell research.
All of this would not be possible without our shareholders, partners, and dedicated team of practitioners. I would like to personally thank you all for your invaluable contributions and on-going support.
This month, we are pleased to announce a number of new developments.
We have recently launched our brand new website, which we hope will clearly guide you through the work that we do. This is part of our dedication to keeping you fully informed about our business operations and our continuing innovations in the field of stem cell research. Navigate through to learn about our products, board members, company news, financial summaries, and much more.
Our business strives to make its operations as efficient and cost effective as possible. In the most recent quarter, our company has succeeded in reducing its expenditures in operational activities, general and administrative tasks, and marketing strategies. An increase in banking services has meant that our Gross Margin from 2014 and 2015 has decreased. Despite this fact, we have seen a growth in revenue, as well as an improvement in our capital deficit, net loss, and current liabilities.
