SHIMADA, Japan, Nov. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Kenrico today announced the disclosure of financial results for the year 2010 and financial targets for the year 2011.
Select Revenue Heights
Worldwide sales were $102 million for the year 2010, the highest yearly sales total for the company, an increase of 2% compared with 2009 ($100 million) and an increase of 24% compared with 2008 ($82 million).
The revenue increase largely reflects strong sales of sporopollenin based toxins extraction (TRMX-3), nattokinase based toxins extraction (Lexirin), Carbon Titanium and Lifetime Water Purifiers. As expected, successful clinical trials of the TRMX-3 contributed to the revenue increase. Nutraceutical and pharmaceutical sales from emerging markets accounted for 40% of sales of the year.

Separately, the company entered into strategic agreements with pharmaceutical companies to market nattokinase based Lexirin globally to physician for prevention of cell death. Apoptotic cell death plays a significant role in the tissue damage that occurs in association with aging and various abnormal conditions, for example, ischemia and various gastrointestinal disorders.

Kenrico continues to expect full year 2011 revenue to grow in the low to mid single digit percent range from a base of $100 million in 2010.
