HORSHAM, Pa. --(BUSINESS WIRE)-- PhotoMedex, Inc. (NASDAQ: PHMD) (TASE: PHMD) today announced that it expects revenues for the fourth quarter of 2013 to be more than $60 million without any contribution from Japan , compared with prior guidance issued on November 6, 2013 for revenues for the fourth quarter of 2013 to be more than $55 million without any expected contribution from Japan . The Company attributes the quarterly revenue outperformance to holiday advertising in the Consumer business segment that yielded global direct response sales above prior forecasts, as well as to better-than-expected sales to retail and home shopping channel customers. Commenting on the raised guidance, Dr. Dolev Rafaeli, chief executive officer of PhotoMedex , said, “Consumer demand for no!no! is strong and our advertising spend for the new no!no! Pro during the Christmas holiday season generated a very high media efficiency ratio. In other positive developments, we are experiencing strong patient response to our XTRAC™ advertising campaign in major markets. We are pleased that for the fourth consecutive quarter XTRAC treatment revenues grew by more than 50% over the prior-year comparison, and for the 12 months ended December 31, 2013 grew by more than 80% over the prior year.” PhotoMedex expects to release financial results for the fourth quarter of 2013 and hold an investment-community conference call in mid-March 2014 .
