Gross profit in the prior year included the positive impacts of an adjustment relating to a reversal of our excess and obsolete inventory reserve and a credit received from a vendor. These impacts did not recur in the current quarter.

Recent Sales Contract and Backlog Information; Production and Vendor Delays

During the third quarter of 2021 we had net bookings totaling approximately $5.6 million, which is the second highest in our history. Our backlog increased to $9.9 million, also among the highest in our history. We continued to be effected by production and shipping delays from certain suppliers which negatively effected completion schedules and impacted our revenue in the third quarter. COVID-19 is disrupting shipping around the U.S. and globally, and shipping companies are experiencing delays for a host of reasons. Additionally, delivery delays are being caused by issues relating to domestic truck transportation.

Organic Growth Strategy Update

As we noted in our press release of May 4, 2021, we have updated our organic growth strategy to include addressing new markets, adding new products and services, and adopting a new trade name, Surna Cultivation Technologies. In the third quarter, we continued executing against this strategy with the addition of our EnviroPro™ air handler line, the introduction of our architectural design services and adding a benching and racking line of products. Also in the third quarter, we signed our first preventative maintenance contracts. In early Q4 2021, we announced the availability of our lighting product via our agreement with BVV. We encourage readers to see the MD&A section of our Form 10-Q dated and filed today, for further explanation of this and our corporate growth strategy.

Tony McDonald, Chairman & CEO, commented: “In the third quarter we saw the second-best quarter in our history for net bookings. Revenue in the quarter continues our year-over-year trend of significant increases. We have seen the continuation of momentum in our commercial pipeline with our increased product offerings and execution against our organic growth strategy.”

Forward Looking Statements

This press release may contain statements of a forward-looking nature relating to future events. These forward-looking statements are subject to the inherent uncertainties in predicting future results and conditions. These statements reflect our current beliefs, and a number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in this press release, including the factors set forth in “Risk Factors” set forth in our annual and quarterly reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), and subsequent filings with the SEC. Please refer to our SEC filings for a more detailed discussion of the risks and uncertainties associated with our business, including but not limited to the risks and uncertainties associated with our business prospects and the prospects of our existing and prospective customers; the inherent uncertainty of product development; regulatory, legislative and judicial developments, especially those related to changes in, and the enforcement of, cannabis laws; increasing competitive pressures in our industry; and relationships with our customers and suppliers. Except as required by the federal securities laws, we undertake no obligation to revise or update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. The reference to Surna’s website has been provided as a convenience, and the information contained on such website is not incorporated by reference into this press release.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our financial results on U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) basis, we use non-GAAP measures including net bookings and backlog, as well as other significant non-cash expenses such as stock-based compensation and depreciation expenses. There can be no assurance that contracts included in backlog will actually generate revenues or when the actual revenues will be generated. Backlog and net bookings should be considered in addition to, rather than as a substitute for, recognized revenue and deferred revenue. We can provide no assurance as to the profitability of our contracts reflected in backlog and net bookings. We believe these non-GAAP measures are helpful in understanding our past performance and are intended to aid in evaluating our potential future results. The presentation of these non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to our GAAP results and are not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information prepared or presented in accordance with GAAP. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way to view aspects of our operations that, when viewed with our GAAP results, provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business.
