Management Commentary

“2020 was a milestone year for our company as we continued to innovate, grow and expand.  Despite the challenges of a global pandemic, we increased revenues by 130% for the year, a testament to our team’s continued innovation and development of our breakthrough digital healthcare services IT platform. As we continue to scale exciting new affiliated services, such as our telehealth platform or our recently announced digital health passport initiative, we anticipate continued top line growth in the coming year.

“I am particularly pleased to announce the launch of our new subsidiary, MedCheks, which is developing a digital health passport to help facilitate the safe reopening of the global economy. To head this new initiative, we brought on James Ram. Under his lead, the Digital Health Passport is planned to leverage both state-of-the-art encryption and blockchain technology to conceal all private health data, allowing for the secure exchange of data between passport holder and verifier. We are evaluating initial roll-out locations for the pay-per-use model.

“Bonum Health, our telehealth subsidiary, made significant strides in the fourth quarter to more rapidly propel adoption nationwide. We signed an exciting partnership with KPH Healthcare services, bringing affordable healthcare to the patients of approximately 100 Kinney Drug retail pharmacies on the East Coast.

“Throughout the year, we have continued to drive our business forward, achieving several key milestones in our internal roadmap with a focus on innovation and development through our various complementary growth opportunities. This is an exciting time for Trxade, and I believe we are better positioned to create sustainable value for our shareholders than at any prior time in the Company’s history,” concluded Mr. Ajjarapu, the Company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

Fourth Quarter 2020 Financial Summary

  • Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2020, increased 17.1% to $2 million, compared to revenue of $1.7 million in the same quarter last year. The increase in revenue was primarily due to revenue generated by the Trxade Platform and Trxade Prime.
  • Gross profit in the fourth quarter of 2020, decreased 90.0% to $0.1 million, or 6.5% of revenues, compared to gross profit of $1.3 million, or 76.5% of revenues, in the same quarter last year. The decrease in gross profit was primarily attributable to higher costs associated with Trxade Prime transactions and a write down of inventory.
  • Operating expenses in the fourth quarter of 2020 were $2.4 million, compared to $1.6 million in the same quarter last year. This increase is primarily due to the Loss on Impairment of Goodwill of $726,000 and an increase in employees with our expansion into Business to Consumer (B2C) sales.
  • Net loss in the fourth quarter of 2020 was $2.3 million, or $0.29 per basic and diluted share outstanding, as a result of the Loss on Impairment of Goodwill and a $1,081,000 inventory write down, compared to a net loss of $0.5 million, or $0.04 per basic and diluted share outstanding, in the same quarter last year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, decreased to ($1.4) million for the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to $0.2 million in the same quarter last year.

Fiscal Year Ended December 31, 2020 Summary

  • Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2020, increased 130.3% to $17.1 million, compared to revenue of $7.4 million in the previous year. The increase in revenue was due to revenue generated by Trxade Platform, Trxade Prime and Integra Pharma Solutions, our wholly-owned subsidiary, which revenue increase mainly related to Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) sales relating to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Gross profit for 2020 increased 17.2% to $5.7 million, or 33.3% of revenues, compared to gross profit of $4.8 million, or 65.5% of revenues, in the same period last year. The increase in gross profit was attributable to higher costs associated with Trxade Prime and Integra Pharma transactions.
  • Operating expenses for the full year 2020 were $8.2 million, compared to $4.7 million in the last year. This increase is due to the Loss on Impairment of Goodwill, an increase in employees with our expansion into Business to Consumer (B2C) sales, IT initiatives, and non-cash compensation.
  • Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2020, was ($2.5) million, or ($0.33) per basic and diluted share outstanding, compared to net loss of ($0.3) million, or ($0.05) per basic and diluted share outstanding, in the last year.

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.
