Management commentary: Patrick Bertagna, GTX Corp CEO.

With businesses across the country opening back up and overall general travel picking back up, we maintained strong PPE, Rapid Test-Kit and SmartSole pre order sales throughout the first quarter and saw a 445% increase in product revenues and a 138% increase in total revenue compared to Q1 2020 with a 22% decrease in SG&A. We added approximately 1,500 new customers, saw continued demand for our new SmartSoles with over 200 pre orders to date, and grew our shareholder base by approximately 60% during Q1 2021.

As we mapped out our 2021 post pandemic course, we did get more aggressive in our pricing and slightly reduced our gross margins in order to sell down our remaining PPE inventory, while shifting focus more on wearable tech products and gearing up for our Cat M1 LTE SmartSole launch.

Since we cannot accurately predict how long the PPE business will remain in demand, and based on the current events and sales trends, we expect to be transitioning out of many PPE products over the coming months and focus on the strong sellers in our product line while ramping up for the launch of the new SmartSoles, NFC Blockchain platform and other medical wearables such as our hearing health products. The continued demand for PPE during Q1 2021 did enable us to maintain our cash flow, continue to add new customers, expand our brand visibility, and reduce our debt by $165K, eliminating all but $1,800 of our variable priced convertible debt, leaving only fixed price, low interest rate debt on the balance sheet.

During the first quarter 2021, we began finalizing the design phase of our next generation miniaturized GPS tracking device, which will utilize a host of new technologies, including CatM1, NB-IoT, enhanced Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, for better accuracy, faster location requests and less power consumption and started working on testing, certification and ordering parts and components in order to prepare for production and launch. We also started working on a new version of our tracking app and new website. We also expanded our product offering under our hearing health product line and began the integration of Amazon Echo voice assisted capabilities into our backend portal.

Health & Safety, Track & Trace are the big buzz words that came out of 2020. Everyone wants to be safe and know where someone or something has been, which sits at the core of the GTX technology and IP portfolio. We are hearing from many of our B2B customers and international distributors that they want more tracking solutions. So, a big part of Q1 was making sure we get back to developing and launching new tracking technology products that will meet the global demand throughout 2021 and beyond. We also explored new partnerships and allocated resources for new research and development initiatives.

In summation, we navigated through the pandemic adding more product sales, more customers, more shareholders, less debt and liabilities and a much cleaner balance sheet. We hope all our stakeholders stay safe and healthy and we will keep updating everyone on our latest developments through our video podcast, press releases and newsletters.
