The Company is delighted to welcome our current Chairman of the Board, Charles M. Fernandez as the Company’s new Chief Executive Officer. On November 11, 2022, Alan Jay Weisberg, Chief Executive Officer, and Vice-Chairman of the Board, resigned effective immediately.

Jay will remain available to us on a consulting basis as we continue our transition to a diversified technology-driven healthcare company. Upon Jay’s resignation, the Directors of Progressive Care appointed me as the Chief Executive Officer. As many of you are aware, I had joined the Board of Directors of Progressive Care as the Chairman in September. My appointment as Chairman was part of the $6 million investment made in Progressive Care in September 2022 by NextPlat Corporation, the Company of which I am also the CEO and Executive Chairman.

I am taking on this role with the goal of maximizing the synergies that exist between NextPlat and Progressive Care,“ said Charles M. Fernandez, CEO of Progressive Care.

Operating results for the three months ended September 30, 2022:
For the three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, we recognized overall revenue from operations of approximately $10.1 million and $9.8 million, respectively. Net pharmacy revenues increased by approximately $0.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022 when compared to the same period in 2021. For the three months ended September 30, 2022, the increase in revenue was mainly attributable to an increase in pharmacy revenue of approximately $1.3 million and 340B contract revenue of approximately $0.5 million, which was offset by a decrease in COVID-19 testing revenue of approximately $1.1 million and an increase in PBM fees of approximately $0.4 million when compared to the same period in 2021.

We have filled approximately 117,000 and 106,000 prescriptions during the three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively, a 10% period over period increase in the number of prescriptions filled.

Gross profit margins decreased from 30% for the three months ended September 30, 2021, to 21% when compared to the same period in 2022. The 9% period over period decrease is mainly due to the decrease in COVID-19 testing revenues, which have significantly higher margins than pharmacy operations.

The loss from operations increased by approximately $2.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022, when compared to the same period in 2021, due to the decrease in COVID-19 testing revenues and increase in operating expenses, which was offset by an increase in prescription and 340B contract revenue.

Operating results for the nine months ended September 30, 2022:

For the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, we recognized overall revenue from operations of approximately $30.2 million and $29.0 million, respectively. Net pharmacy revenues increased by approximately $1.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 when compared to the same period in 2021. For the nine months ended September 30, 2022, the increase in revenue was mainly attributable to an increase in pharmacy revenue of approximately $2.4 million and an increase in 340B contract revenue of approximately $0.1 million, which was offset by a decrease in COVID-19 testing revenue of approximately $1.0 million and an increase in PBM fees of approximately $0.3 million, when compared to the same period in 2021.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2022 we had a net loss of $11.2 million compared to net income of $0.4 million for the same period in 2021, this is an approximate $11.6 million year over year decrease. We experienced a number of non-recurring and non-cash charges to our net loss in the third quarter that were attributable to the recapitalization of our debt and the capital raise associated with the issuance of Series B Preferred Stock.

Among them, we incurred non-recurring costs direct and attributable from securities attorneys, investment banker fees, stock compensation expense, gain on debt extinguishment, and accounting fees. These non-recurring costs approximated over $1.2 million. We incurred non-cash charges as a result of the change in fair value of the derivative liabilities associated with the warrants and convertible debt due to insufficient authorized shares to settle these instruments and was approximately $7.8 million.
