"In the last four months since Co-Diagnostics received emergency use authorization from the FDA, the company has successfully grown our internationally recognized business and brand,” Co-Diagnostics CEO Dwight Egan said in a statement accompanying the results on Thursday.

The Salt Lake City-based firm now has clients in more than 50 countries, including 25 US states, and validations of test accuracy from regulatory bodies of numerous countries around the world, Egan told shareholders.

“Co-Diagnostics has established a distribution platform that we believe will continue to support sales and profitability as our tests have gained widespread acceptance in the market,” the CEO added.

“We have created a test menu and established the production capacity to meet demand for tests as the nations of the world continue to battle the pandemic, and believe these efforts will continue to bolster the company's durability in the months and years to come.”

The firm also said that its COVID-19 test and equipment sales orders are approaching $50 million year to date, a figure that includes joint venture sales in India. It is also closing in on completing principal design work and verification for Flu A, Flu B, and COVID-19 multiplex panel, with anticipated deployment during its third quarter.

Co-Diagnostics ended the period with $18.6 million in cash.
