Third Quarter 2020 and Subsequent Operational Highlights

Trxade continued to expand its platform nationwide, adding 144 new independent pharmacies in Q3 2020, bringing the total registered pharmacy members to around 11,800.

Launched Bonum+, a B2B platform under the Company’s telehealth subsidiary Bonum Health, which bundles telehealth, a COVID-19 risk assessment tool and a Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) purchasing tool through a secure mobile dashboard for corporate clients.

Announced prescription savings partnership with SingleCare, a free prescription savings service, to supplement Bonum Health’s enterprise telehealth solutions with prescription discounts offered to national, regional and local pharmacies to promote the benefit to uninsured patients and underserved communities.

Management Commentary

“The third quarter was highlighted by our impressive financial results, growing revenues 174% year-over-year, due to both robust PPE sales and ever more pharmacies joining the Trxade marketplace platform,” said Suren Ajjarapu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “The COVID-19 pandemic has only underscored the importance of an integrated platform like ours, which enables independent pharmacies to remain competitive and profitable in a changing drug procurement marketplace.”

“The Trxade marketplace platform at the core of our business has continued to grow, with 144 new pharmacies added in the quarter – bringing our total to around 11,800,” added Mr. Ajjarapu.

“Our telehealth subsidiary, Bonum Health, continues to expand the breadth of its service offerings, providing not only telehealth solutions, allowing individuals to speak with a doctor and obtain prescriptions remotely – but further allowing them to purchase prescriptions at a discount through partnerships with companies like SingleCare, and identify a pharmacy near them for pickup. We have concurrently expanded our offerings to employers, who can use our Bonum+ platform to manage COVID-19 risk through a comprehensive interface, helping enable employees to safely return to work.”

“We are a nimble organization and remain well-positioned to address emerging opportunities in the industry through our various business units, having created an unrivaled drug procurement marketplace platform for independent pharmacies, as well as a comprehensive healthcare solution for consumers centered around the independent pharmacy ecosystem. I look forward to our continued progress in the months ahead – creating sustainable, long-term value for our stockholders,” concluded Mr. Ajjarapu.

Third Quarter 2020 Financial Summary

Revenues for the third quarter of 2020 increased 174% to $6.3 million, compared to revenue of $2.3 million in the same quarter last year. The increase in revenue was primarily due to strong Personal Protective Equipment sales in the third quarter, driven by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gross profit in the third quarter of 2020 increased 47% to $1.9 million, or 30.5% of revenues, compared to gross profit of $1.3 million, or 56.7% of revenues, in the same quarter last year. The increase in gross profit was primarily attributable to high-volume, lower-margin sales of Personal Protective Equipment in our Integra Pharma unit.

Operating expenses in the third quarter of 2020 were $1.8 million, compared to $1.1 million in the same quarter last year. This increase is primarily due to non-cash stock-based compensation expenses, IT Expenditures and marketing expenses.

Net income in the third quarter of 2020 was $0.14 million, or $0.02 per basic and diluted share outstanding, compared to net income of $0.03 million, or $0.00 per basic and diluted share outstanding, in the same quarter last year.

Adjusted EBITDA*, a non-GAAP financial measure, increased 150% to $0.67 million, compared to $0.27 million in the same quarter last year.

Cash and cash equivalents were $6.6 million as of September 30, 2020, compared with $4.2 million as of June 30, 2020.

More information regarding the Company’s Q3 2020 results of operations can be found in the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, which the Company plans to file on October 26, 2020 with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

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.
