TAMPA, FL / ACCESSWIRE / July 26, 2021 / TRxADE HEALTH, INC. (NASDAQ:MEDS), a health services IT company focused on digitalizing the retail pharmacy experience by optimizing drug procurement, the prescription journey and patient engagement in the U.S., today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021.
Recent Operational Highlights:
- Trxade continued to expand the Trxade drug procurement marketplace nationwide, adding approximately 195 new registered members in Q2 2021, bringing the total registered members to 12,700+.
- Signed enterprise retail partnerships with Winn-Dixie, Big Y, SpartanNash and Brookshire Grocery to onboard new customers to the Company's telehealth platform. Over 500 stores offer the Company's Bonum Health product to thousands of customers which is available in all 50 states.
- Secured group purchasing agreement with QualityCare Pharmacies, an independent pharmacy prescription drug buying group, joining TRxADE's rapidly growing GPO offering to spearhead significant increases in wallet share amongst independent pharmacies on the TRxADE platform.
- Launched government-oriented health passport solution with accompanying mobile app to enable expedited post-COVID-19 reopening.
'We continue to drive forward telehealth which supports the core strength of our pharmaceutical exchange platform,' said Suren Ajjarapu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of TRxADE HEALTH. 'Despite the ongoing challenges to the pharmaceutical supply chain posted by the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to position the Company for future success in its complementary business segments.'
'In continued efforts to expand the reach of our telehealth offering Bonum Health, we inked partnerships with over 500 retail locations nationwide - serving a rapidly growing base of customers in all 50 states. I anticipate the pace of onboarding to accelerate in the coming quarters as consumers naturally gravitate towards our affordable, easy-to-use telehealth platform. We believe that this business, when paired with potentially lucrative digital health passport opportunities abroad, positions us for continued success.'
'Our core exchange business continues to gain momentum through several catalysts, most notably, the addition of new group purchasing organizations that should drive a near-term return to operating profitability. Taken in tandem with our complementary telehealth and health passport businesses, we are better positioned than ever to grow into a much more diversified, profitable company in the near term while creating sustainable, long-term value for our shareholders,' concluded Ajjarapu.
Second Quarter 2021 Financial Summary
- Revenues for the second quarter of 2021 were $1.9 million, as compared to revenues of $6.6 million in the same quarter last year. The decrease in revenue was primarily a result of non-recurring sales of personal protective equipment (PPE) in 2020 related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Gross profit in the second quarter of 2021 totaled $0.8 million, or 44.3% of revenues, compared to gross profit of $2.0 million, or 30.4% of revenues, in the same quarter last year. The significant increase in gross profit margin was a result of fewer lower margin PPE sales in 2021.
- Operating expenses in the second quarter of 2021 were $3.4 million, compared to $2.5 million in the same quarter last year, primarily as a result of an inventory investment loss of $1.2 million.
- Net loss in the second quarter of 2021 was $2.6 million, or ($0.32) per basic and diluted share outstanding, compared to a net loss of $0.5 million, or ($0.07) per basic share outstanding, in the same quarter 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, loss on inventory investment 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 HEALTH, Inc. does, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure. See also 'Reconciliation of Net Income attributable to TRxADE HEALTH, INC., to Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) and Adjusted EBITDA', below.
