CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- HealthWarehouse.com, Inc. (OTC: HEWA) announced today that its net income was $641,326 and net sales were $17,178,985 in 2020. It also reported positive cash flow for the fourth consecutive year, as reflected by its internal measure of Adjusted EBITDA as defined below, which was $593,744 in 2020.

HealthWarehouse.com, a technology company with a focus on healthcare e-commerce, sells and delivers prescription medications to all 50 states as an Approved Digital Pharmacy through the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP). HealthWarehouse.com provides a platform focused on increasing access and reducing costs of healthcare products for consumers nationwide.

“2020 was a productive and rewarding year despite all of the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Joseph Peters, the Company’s President and CEO. “Our team responded admirably to the challenges of the pandemic and continued to provide the world class service our patients have come to know and love. We attribute our strong operating results to their resolve. In addition, we experienced record traffic to our website and we launched and completed a number of initiatives that strengthened our balance sheet.” Peters noted that the Company completed a long-term convertible note issuance, repaid its short-term notes payable, entered into a conversion and standstill agreement with the holders of its Series C preferred stock and received a federal Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan that was subsequently forgiven. The Company ended the year with more than $1.8 million in cash.

HealthWarehouse.com continues to invest in proprietary technology to remain at the forefront of new developments and offerings in the world of healthcare, noting a focus on patient experience, operational efficiency, and scalability.

“Looking to 2021, we are diligently preparing for the rollout of our new pharmacy software and e-commerce solution in the third quarter furthering our commitment to improving the pharmacy experience for our patients,” Peters said. “The integration and implementation of these new platforms will improve the efficiency of our pharmacy workflow and allow us to seamlessly add patients while maintaining current service levels. In parallel with these initiatives, we are investing in branding and marketing campaigns that will benefit the company in 2021 and beyond. The culmination of these efforts along with our prior investment in robotics will position HealthWarehouse.com as a technological leader in the industry, supporting both its direct-to-consumer (B2C) and healthcare partnership (B2B) business units. We are excited for the changes and advancements that 2021 will bring for the company as we continue to set the standard for affordable healthcare in America and provide transparency to our patients across the nation.”

Use of Non-­GAAP Financial Measures

HealthWarehouse.com, Inc. (the "Company") prepares its consolidated financial statements in accordance with the United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). In addition to disclosing financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP, the Company discloses information regarding EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, which are commonly used. In addition to adjusting net income or net loss to exclude interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”), Adjusted EBITDA also excludes stock-based compensation, and certain nonrecurring charges. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of performance defined in accordance with GAAP. However, Adjusted EBITDA is used internally in planning and evaluating the Company`s performance. Accordingly, management believes that disclosure of this metric offers lenders and other shareholders an additional view of the Company`s operations that, when coupled with GAAP results, provides a more complete understanding of the Company’s financial results.

Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income, net loss or to net cash provided by or used in operating activities as a measure of operating results or of liquidity. It may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies, and it excludes financial information that some may consider important in evaluating the Company`s performance.
