Company Reports Significant Increase in Gross Profit Margins and Decrease in Liabilities with Gains Leading to Positive Net Income for the Quarter
SAN DIEGO, Aug. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- MyDx, Inc. (OTCQB: MYDX), a rapidly growing science and technology company that has developed MyDx®, the first multi-use handheld chemical analyzer for consumers, announces its 2Q 2017 results and management analysis.
CannaDx Product Revenue increased to ~$126K in Q2 2017, up ~47% from Q1 2017
- MyDx sold out of its signature handheld analyzer in Q1 on stronger than expected demand leading to a backlog of orders and customer deposits that are were filled in Q2.
- The Company expects to continue to receive consistent growing demand for its analyzer based on word of mouth and referrals mainly as well as a new marketing initiatives the company launched late June which is generating new customer awareness and product orders from Canada.
- The company will focus on deploying the EcoSmartPenTM in the second half of this year as well as expand its customer base for the MyDx360 SAAS service beyond the initial BlackSwan/i+Huntr brand agreement which was not recognized as revenue in this quarter.
Gross profit margins as a percentage of net revenues increased to 78% in Q2, a greater than 32% increase from the same period last year, the highest product margins in company history
- The gross product margin was improved by an increase in MyDx Grower Packages sold for $899 on our online store, which yield a higher profit margin compared to the standard $699 retail package and a much higher margin compared to units sold through our distribution channels.
- Any anticipated future revenue from the company's software licensing and services are expected to have a further positive impact on the overall gross profit margins
Research and Development Expenses decrease 81% with new accelerated product development approach
- For the three months ended June 30, 2017, the Company expended $27,724 for various research and development projects for hardware, database, software and sensor development as compared to $145,885 for the three months ended June 30, 2016. The decrease of $118,161, or 81%, resulted primarily from the Company taking a more economical and streamlined outsourcing approach to developing new products (such as the Eco Smart PenTM, MyDx360TM, AeroDx®).
- The company is taking the same approach to launch its next generation of CannaDxTM, AquaDx® and OrganaDx® products.
For the first time in company history, the company has generated a Net Positive Income as a direct result of a decrease in liabilities and gains generated through other income
- The Company incurred net income of $2,967,808 compared to a Net Loss of $(936,665) for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively.
- The increase in net income resulted primarily from the decrease of interest expense related to the convertible notes payable, an increase in a gain on fair value of derivative liability, a gain on settlement of debt, and a gain of $135,000 on the forfeiture a technology transfer deposit. These were offset by an increase in derivative expense.
New Product Offering Operating Results
- The company updated its CannaDx product webpage (www.mydxlife.com) and launched a Marketing Campaign in Canada which is already yielding new sales from customers in Canada.
- The company closed its first big customer under its newly created MyDx360 SaaS Licensing and Services platform with an ~$80K agreement signed in Q2 with BlackSwan.
