SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Dynatronics Corporation (NASDAQ: DYNT) today announced results for its fiscal first quarter ended September 30, 2012.
Net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, improved to $51,145 ($.00 per common share), compared to net loss of $68,259 ($.01 per common share) for the same quarter in the prior fiscal year. Sales for the fiscal first quarter ended September 30, 2012, declined 9.9 percent to $7,206,025, compared to $7,996,802 for the quarter ended September 30, 2011.

"The new products that are currently under development will allow us to expand distribution and help us capture greater market share in the physical medicine market," Cullimore added. "The development of the new products is made possible by the technology platform we built over the past two years o
