WOODBRIDGE, ON, May 1, 2014 /CNW/ - Pivotal Therapeutics Inc. (OTCQX: PVTTF) (CSE: PVO), a specialty pharmaceutical company with a focus on Omega-3 therapies for cardiovascular disease (CVD) and overall health, announces a correction to its press release issued yesterday entitled "Pivotal Therapeutics Announces 2013 Financial Results".
The decrease in the loss from 2012 to 2013 of $745,342 was inadvertently overstated by $91,520. The correct decrease in loss is $653,822 and not $745,342 as presented in the press release. All other information remains unchanged. The revised information is as follows:
"For the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 the Company reported a loss of $3.0 million, or $0.04 per common share, compared with a loss of $3.6 million, or $0.05 per common share for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012. The decrease in loss of $653,822 is attributed to the improvement in revenues combined with a reduction in operating expenses."
This correction applies only to the press release issued effective April 30, 2014.
