Management commentary by Patrick Bertagna, GTX Corp CEO:

As indicated in the above bullets, we had lower than expected revenues, however all the other metrics were positive. During the quarter we focused on getting our 4G GPS SmartSole platform ready for launch and planning our roadmap for 2022. Even though we deployed every resource and every means available to get some product shipped before the end of September, we just faced supply chain and labor challenges that we had little or no control over, which ultimately affected our third quarter 2021 revenues. We have however now begun production and expect to start shipping before the end of the year. As of right now, we are still oversold for our first production run, and as we continue to receive additional pre-orders, we expect to maintain a backlog of orders until early 2022 or until supply chains come back to normal.

As we stated in previous filings, in anticipation of these shortages and delays, we began ordering raw materials as early as late 2020 and into early 2021, which allowed us to ensure that the majority of components are in house and ready to go. It is just taking a lot more time to get parts from point A to B and to get factories to produce, but we are in the final stretch and all components are now at the factories and we are pushing hard to get some product out the door before the holidays.

As part of our long-term growth strategy to launch new products and grow recurring revenues, we entered into several new collaboration agreements to potentially expand our product lines in wearable tracking tech, wearable biometrics, NFC and block chain supply chain management, and overall health, wellness, and longevity solutions.

During the third quarter 2021, we launched our Longevity Revolution marketing campaign and introduced a series of new videos highlighting some of the new wearable tech we plan to develop and introduce with some of our new partners. Even though we are still in the early stage with some these partnerships, we are making progress and expect to have a more detailed roadmap and announcements before the end of the year, or right after we launch our 4G SmartSoles.

Already having multiple UV products in our PPE product line and believing in the technology, we signed a distribution agreement with Synergistic Sanitizing Solutions for the UV Clean Air automated continuous UV-C air treatment system. This simple, seamless, and effective air purification technology uses patented UV-C light to reduce levels of virus, bacteria, and fungi by automatically and continuously treating the air to create healthier environments. The air purification system uses years of research and development in ultraviolet light and IoT enabled technologies to create a truly effective and modern air treatment system with laboratory results showing elimination rates up to 99.9%. With virus and pathogen awareness on high alert due to the Delta variant and inevitable new variants or a possible 4th waive which could arrive during the holidays, we immediately started introducing this highly needed product to our assisted living, health care, school, university, small business, and government customers. This product is not only highly effective in the fight against the spread of COVID, but also has 100% funding available for purchase and installation, through FEMA and the Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES) for qualifying essential and critical community entities.

At the end of the first quarter 2021, we stated we could not accurately predict how long the Personal Protection Equipment (“PPE”) business would remain in strong demand and expected to be transitioning out of many PPE products over the coming months and only focus on strong sellers, while ramping up for the launch of the new SmartSoles, NFC Blockchain platform and other medical wearables. Our position at the end of the third quarter 2021 continues to be the same, however we did see some uptick in the third quarter for PPE demand due to the rising number of new COVID cases, the rapid spread of the Delta variant, new CDC mask guidelines and back to school mask mandates for k-12. As long as the demand remains, we will continue to service and support our customers for their PPE needs.

This quarter we also increased our marketing and outreach campaigns and because schools and assisted living facilities can potentially buy both PPE and tracking solutions from us, we ramped up our domestic B2B outreach programs and increased our marketing budget which we expect will generate more B2B U.S. sales in the future.

On the balance sheet front, we continued to reduce our debt and outstanding payables, while not taking on any new debt. We slightly increased our margins, we decreased our liabilities and debt, while increasing our cash on hand and pre-pay for a lot of our component inventory. All part of strengthening our position for 2022.
