Management Commentary

“We are pleased to have started 2021 achieving record first quarter growth, while concurrently making impressive operational progress spanning all business units,” said Suren Ajjarapu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, who further stated, “Our exciting suite of affiliated services – from our comprehensive telehealth solution, to digital health passports enabling a safe reopening with an attractive pay-per-scan business model – continue to broaden our reach as a company, empowering independent pharmacies with technology to make them indispensable local health hubs.”

“We have been anything but idle in 2021 and have been pounding the pavement to broaden the reach of our Bonum Health Telehealth partnerships, signing strategic partnerships with brand-name stores nationwide, such as Kinney Drugs, ProAct, Brookshire Grocery Company, SpartanNash and most recently, Big Y Foods, as well as others which we’ve been unable to announce per the terms of our agreements, to build a truly national platform. Approximately 500+ stores offer Bonum Health services to thousands of users in all 50 states and we anticipate continued growth in the quarters to come as we ramp up our strategic partnerships and see an increasing number of employers turning to our turnkey telehealth solution.

“Bonum Health is focused on bolstering its value proposition and building its brand identity as part of its mission to become a leading force in the telehealth marketplace. We continue to integrate exciting new solutions into the Bonum Health offering, including a direct-to-patient prescription drug coupon platform through our partnership with SingleCare, the capability to stream patient lab results directly into the Bonum Health virtual electronic medical records, and remote patient monitoring. These product enhancements, paired with our digital marketing strategy, which we are ramping up, provide us with accelerated access into new key markets alongside our enterprise retail partners.”

“We believe we are incredibly well positioned as we stand today, poised to monetize several emerging revenue streams in addition to the steady progress made by our high-margin Trxade Exchange core platform. I look forward to aggressive operational execution in the months ahead as we seek to create sustainable, long-term value for our shareholders,” concluded Ajjarapu.

First Quarter 2021 Financial Summary

  • Revenues for the first quarter of 2021 increased 39% to $3.1 million, as compared to revenue of $2.2 million in the same quarter last year. The increase in revenue was primarily due to higher sales by our Integra Pharma Solutions subsidiary.
  • Gross profit in the first quarter of 2021 totaled $1.4 million, or 45% of revenues, compared to gross profit of $1.6 million, or 74% of revenues, in the same quarter last year. The decrease in gross profit was primarily attributable to the cost of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) related purchased products in the current period, while revenues from the Trxade Platform (which made up the majority of revenues last year) carry no cost of sales.
  • Operating expenses in the first quarter of 2021 were $2.0 million, compared to $1.5 million in the same quarter last year. This change is primarily due to IT development, legal expenses and marketing expenses related to the recently launched Bonum Health and MedCheks platforms.
  • Net loss in the first quarter of 2021 was $0.7 million, or $0.08 per basic and diluted share outstanding, compared to net income of $0.2 million, or $0.03 per basic share outstanding, in the same quarter last year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, decreased 243% to negative $0.5 million, compared to positive $0.4 million in the same quarter last year.
  • Cash and cash equivalents were $5.2 million as of March 31, 2021, compared with $5.9 million as of December 31, 2020.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
This earnings release discusses EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA. These measurements are not recognized in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and should not be viewed as an alternative to GAAP measures of performance. EBITDA represents net income before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA before stock-based compensation expense and gain (loss) in equity investment. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are presented because we believe they provide additional useful information to investors due to the various noncash items during the period. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider them in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of our operating results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are: EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect cash expenditures, future requirements for capital expenditures, or contractual commitments; EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, working capital needs; and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the significant interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on debt or cash income tax payments. Although depreciation and amortization are noncash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements. Additionally, other companies in our industry may calculate EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA differently than Trxade Group, Inc. does, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure. See also “Reconciliation of Net Income attributable to Trxade Group, Inc., to Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) and Adjusted EBITDA”, below.
