  • Net loss from continuing operations was ($7.1 million), compared to ($1.5 million) loss in the same period of 2020.

Tawny Lam, Chairperson and Chief Executive Officer of Nova LifeStyle, stated, “This was a good quarter for the Company and a strong first half of the year. As the Covid pandemic continues to cause disruptions within supply chains, we have been able to increase sales all of which can be attributed to our inventory build-up over the past 18 months. Some of our customers that had suspended or significantly cut back on operations in response to the pandemic, have resumed operations and we have been working with them to provide products. We continue to work with our suppliers and manufacturers to ensure that we are in a position to satisfy our customer needs as they gradually return their operations to pre-pandemic levels.”

“During the quarter ended June 30, 2021 we wrote down $5.53 million in slow moving inventory. That inventory consisted predominantly of Jade matts that were designed to be marketed predominantly in Malaysia through showrooms established by us in Malaysia and through medical clinics in Malaysia. The pandemic-related lockdowns in Malaysia have all but eliminated foot-traffic into retail locations and medical clinics, which ultimately resulted in the writedown. We are unable to predict when or if those circumstances will improve in Malaysia.”

“The Company continues to execute on its business plan, specifically offering higher margin products. Revenues have increased this year and we anticipate a strong pipeline for the balance of the year. We believe the investments in inventory and improvements in our online presence that we made since the beginning of the pandemic positions us to support our current customers and also allows our marketing and business development team to generate new leads. As a result, we are excited about continuing to deliver growth in sales. I am most appreciative to our team and our partners and for their efforts in accomplishing this feat in the current environment,” concluded Ms. Lam.
