Business Overview and Strategy
We are a direct-to-patient telehealth technology company that provides a smarter, cost-effective, and convenient way for Americans to access healthcare. We believe the traditional model of visiting a doctor’s office, visiting a local pharmacy, and returning to see a doctor for follow up care or prescription refills is inefficient, costly, and slow, and discourages many individuals from seeking much needed medical care. The U.S. healthcare system is undergoing a paradigm shift, thanks to new technologies and the emergence of telehealth. Direct-to-patient telehealth companies, like LifeMD, Inc., are leading the shift by connecting consumers digitally to licensed healthcare professionals for care across various needs, such as virtual primary care, men’s sexual health, dermatology, and others.
Our telehealth platform provides patients with access to licensed providers for diagnoses, virtual care, and prescription medications, often delivered on a recurring basis. In addition to our telehealth offerings, we sell complementary nutritional supplements and over-the-counter (“OTC”) products. Many of our products are available on a subscription basis, where patients can subscribe to receive regular shipments of prescribed medications or products. This creates convenience and discounted pricing opportunities for patients and recurring revenue streams for us. Our customer acquisition strategy combines strategic brand-building media placements, influencer partnerships, and direct response advertising methods across highly scalable marketing channels (i.e., national TV, streaming TV, streaming audio, YouTube, podcasts, Out of Home, print, magazines, online search, social media, and digital).
Since inception, we have helped more than 550,000 customers and patients, providing them greater access to high-quality, convenient, and affordable care in all 50 states. Our telehealth revenue increased 70% for the three months ended March 31, 2022 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2021. Total revenue from recurring subscriptions is approximately 91%. In addition to our telehealth business, we own 85.6% of WorkSimpli, which operates PDFSimpli, a rapidly growing software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) platform for converting, signing, editing, and sharing PDF documents. This business has seen 31% year over year revenue growth, with recurring revenue of 98%.
We believe that telehealth platforms like ours will fundamentally shift how individuals perceive and access healthcare in the United States, by necessity and by preference. With the average wait time to see a physician in the United States now greater than 29 days, according to a 2018 Merritt Hawkins Survey, and the United States’ projected significant shortfall of licensed physicians by 2030, we believe the U.S. healthcare infrastructure must change to accommodate patients. Timely and convenient access to healthcare and prescription medications is a critical factor in improving quality of care and patient outcomes. Our mission is to radically change healthcare with our portfolio of direct-to-patient telehealth brands that encompass on-demand medical treatment, online pharmacy, and OTC products. We want our brands to be top-of-mind for consumers considering telehealth.
In the United States, healthcare spending is currently $4.0 trillion and is expected to grow to $6.2 trillion by 2028, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Physician services and prescription medications account for approximately 30% of healthcare spending, or over $1 trillion annually, and we believe that we have the infrastructure, medical expertise, and technical know-how necessary to help shift a substantial portion of this market to an online, virtual format. We believe that we are well positioned to capitalize on this large-scale shift in healthcare.
We believe that an amazing customer experience, incredible healthcare, and new customer acquisition form the heart of our business. As is exemplified with our first brand, Shapiro MD, we have built a full line of proprietary and patented OTC products for male and female hair loss, U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) approved OTC minoxidil, and now a telehealth platform offering that gives consumers access to virtual medical treatment and, when appropriate, a full line of oral and topical prescription medications for hair loss. Our men’s brand, RexMD, currently offers access to provider-based treatment through telehealth for men’s health conditions, such as sexual health and hair loss. RexMD continues to expand its treatment offerings to address additional chronic indications present in men’s health. We have built a platform that allows us to efficiently launch telehealth brands and offerings wherever we identify a market need. Our platform is supported by a driven team of digital marketing and branding experts, data analysts, designers, and engineers focused on building enduring brands.
Our Brand Portfolio and Virtual Primary Care Platform
We have built a strategic portfolio of wholly-owned telehealth platform brands supported by an affiliated, 50-state physician network and an integrated national network of third party pharmacies that address large unmet needs in men’s health, hair loss, virtual primary care, and dermatology. We continue to experience aggressive growth across our brands.
Our process across each brand and condition we treat is to guide consumers through a medical intake process and product selection, after which a licensed U.S. physician conducts a virtual consultation and, if appropriate, prescribes prescription medications and/or recommends OTC products. Prescription medications and OTC products are filled by pharmacy fulfillment partners and shipped directly to the patient. The number of patients and customers we serve across the nation continues to increase at a robust pace, with more than 550,000 individuals having purchased our products and services to date.
Hair Loss: ShapiroMD
Launched in 2017, ShapiroMD is a telehealth platform brand that offers access to virtual medical treatment, prescription medications, patented-doctor formulated OTC products, an FDA approved medical device for male and female hair loss, and female specific topical compounded medications for hair loss through our telehealth platform. ShapiroMD has emerged as a leading destination for hair loss treatment across the United States and has served more than 250,000 customers and patients since inception with a 4.9-star Trustpilot rating.
Men’s Health: RexMD
Launched in 2019, RexMD is a men’s telehealth platform brand that offers access to virtual medical treatment for a variety of men’s health needs. After treatment from a licensed physician, if appropriate, one of our partner pharmacies will dispense and ship prescription medications and OTC products directly to the customer. Since RexMD’s initial launch in the erectile dysfunction treatment market, it has expanded into additional indications, including but not limited to, premature ejaculation, testosterone, and hair loss. Our vision for RexMD is to become a leading telehealth destination for men. RexMD has emerged as a leading men’s telehealth platform across the United States and has served more than 300,000 customers and patients since inception with a 4.5-star Trustpilot rating.
Variable Interest Entity: LifeMD Primary Care
Beta launched in the fourth quarter of 2021, LifeMD PC is a personalized, subscription-based virtual primary care platform. The LifeMD PC clinic provides patients in all 50 states with 24/7 access to a high-quality provider for their primary care, urgent care and chronic care needs. LifeMD PC offers a mobile first platform that incorporates virtual consultations and treatment, prescription medications, diagnostics, and imaging. LifeMD PC capabilities are supported by robust partnerships as further discussed below. No revenue was recorded related to the LifeMD PC during the three months ended March 31, 2022.
Launched in the first quarter of 2021, NavaMD is a female-oriented, tele-dermatology brand that offers access to virtual medical treatment from dermatologists and other providers, and, if appropriate, prescription oral and compounded topical medications to treat dermatological conditions such as aging and acne. In addition to the brand’s telehealth offerings, NavaMD’s proprietary products leverage intellectual property and proprietary formulations licensed from Restorsea, a leading medical grade skincare technology platform.
Restorsea’s clinically proven skincare technology platform is the result of more than $50 million invested in R&D and intellectual property development, and Restorsea has received at least 35 patents along with broad industry and academic acclaim, with its breakthrough clinical results having been published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Drugs in Dermatology and Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology. NavaMD is one of the first direct-to-patient brands to offer this advanced skincare technology.
Allergy, Asthma & Immunology: Cleared
In January 2022, the Company acquired Cleared, a telehealth brand that provides personalized treatments for allergy, asthma, and immunology. Its offerings include in-home tests for both environmental and food allergies, prescriptions for allergies and asthma, and FDA-approved immunotherapies for treating chronic allergies. Cleared leverages a network of medical professionals and providers in all 50 states, a growing pipeline of pharmaceutical partners, and treatments and tests that cost up to 50 percent less than the brand-name competition. The offerings include free consultations and ongoing care from U.S.-licensed allergists and nurses.
Majority Owned Subsidiary: WorkSimpli
WorkSimpli operates PDFSimpli, an online SaaS platform that allows users to create, edit, convert, sign and share PDF documents. WorkSimpli was acquired through the purchase of 51% of the membership interests of WorkSimpli Software, LLC, a Puerto Rico limited liability company, which operates a marketing-driven software solutions business. In addition to WorkSimpli’s growth business model, this acquisition added deep search engine optimization and search engine marketing expertise to the Company. On January 22, 2021, the Company increased its ownership of WorkSimpli to 85.6%.
WorkSimpli was ranked in the top 4,160 websites globally, in which it was also ranked in the top 563 for specific countries with more than 19 million registrants globally. Since its launch, WorkSimpli has converted or edited over 14 terabytes of documents for customers from the legal, financial, real-estate and academic sectors. WorkSimpli had over 102,000 active subscriptions as of December 31, 2021.
In February 2022, WorkSimpli closed on an Asset Purchase Agreement with East Fusion FZCO, a Dubai, UAE corporation (the “Seller”), whereby WorkSimpli acquired substantially all of the assets associated with the Seller’s business offering subscription-based resume building software through SaaS online platforms.
On January 18, 2022, the Company acquired Cleared Technologies PBC, a Delaware public benefit corporation (“Cleared”), a rapidly growing nationwide allergy telehealth platform that provides personalized treatments for allergy, asthma, and immunology.
Our customer base includes men and women seeking virtual primary care and virtual medical treatment for hair loss, men’s sexual health issues, dermatology, and allergy and asthma. No single customer accounted for more than 10% of net sales for the years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020.
LifeMD, Inc. was formed in the State of Delaware on May 24, 1994, under our prior name, Immudyne, Inc. We changed our name to Conversion Labs, Inc. on June 22, 2018 and then subsequently, on February 22, 2021, we changed our name to LifeMD, Inc. Further, in connection with changing our name, we changed our trading symbol to LFMD.
On April 1, 2016, the original operating agreement of Immudyne PR LLC (“Immudyne PR”), a joint venture to market the Company’s skincare products, was amended and restated and the Company increased its ownership and voting interest in Immudyne PR to 78.2%. Concurrent with the name change of the parent company to Conversion Labs, Inc., Immudyne PR was renamed to Conversion Labs PR LLC. On April 25, 2019, the operating agreement of Conversion Labs PR was amended and restated in its entirety to increase the Company’s ownership and voting interest in Conversion Labs PR to 100%. On February 22, 2021, concurrent with the name of the parent company to LifeMD, Inc., Conversion Labs PR LLC was renamed to LifeMD PR, LLC.
In June 2018, the Company closed the strategic acquisition of 51% of LegalSimpli Software, LLC, which operates a SaaS application for converting, editing, signing, and sharing PDF documents called PDFSimpli. In addition to LegalSimpli Software, LLC’s growth business model, this acquisition added deep search engine optimization and search engine marketing expertise to the Company. On July 15, 2021, LegalSimpli Software, LLC, changed its name to WorkSimpli Software, LLC, (“WorkSimpli”). Effective January 22, 2021, the Company consummated a transaction to restructure the ownership of WorkSimpli and concurrently increased its ownership stake in WorkSimpli to 85.6%.
On January 18, 2022, the Company acquired Cleared, a rapidly growing nationwide allergy telehealth platform that provides personalized treatments for allergy, asthma, and immunology.

If the selling stockholders effect such transactions by selling shares of common stock to or through underwriters, broker-dealers or agents, such underwriters, broker-dealers or agents may receive commissions in the form of discounts, concessions or commissions from the selling stockholders or commissions from purchasers of the shares of common stock for whom they may act as agent or to whom they may sell as principal (which discounts, concessions or commissions as to particular underwriters, broker-dealers or agents may be in excess of those customary in the types of transactions involved). In connection with sales of the shares of common stock or otherwise, the selling stockholders may enter into hedging transactions with broker-dealers, which may in turn engage in short sales of the shares of common stock in the course of hedging in positions they assume. The selling stockholders may also sell shares of common stock short and deliver shares of common stock covered by this prospectus to close out short positions and to return borrowed shares in connection with such short sales.

To the extent required by the Securities Act and the rules and regulations thereunder, the selling stockholders and any broker-dealer participating in the distribution of the shares of common stock may be deemed to be “underwriters” within the meaning of the Securities Act, and any commission paid, or any discounts or concessions allowed to, any such broker-dealer may be deemed to be underwriting commissions or discounts under the Securities Act. At the time a particular offering of the shares of common stock is made, a prospectus supplement, if required, will be distributed, which will set forth the aggregate amount of shares of common stock being offered and the terms of the offering, including the name or names of any broker-dealers or agents, any discounts, commissions and other terms constituting compensation from the selling stockholders and any discounts, commissions or concessions allowed or re-allowed or paid to broker-dealers.
Under the securities laws of some states, the shares of common stock may be sold in such states only through registered or licensed brokers or dealers.

There can be no assurance that any selling stockholder will sell any or all of the shares of common stock registered pursuant to the registration statement, of which this prospectus forms a part.
The selling stockholders and any other person participating in such distribution will be subject to applicable provisions of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the rules and regulations thereunder, including, without limitation, to the extent applicable, Regulation M of the Exchange Act, which may limit the timing of purchases and sales of any of the shares of common stock by the selling stockholders and any other participating person. To the extent applicable, Regulation M may also restrict the ability of any person engaged in the distribution of the shares of common stock to engage in market-making activities with respect to the shares of common stock. All of the foregoing may affect the marketability of the shares of common stock and the ability of any person or entity to engage in market-making activities with respect to the shares of common stock.
We will pay all expenses of the registration of the shares of common stock pursuant to the registration rights agreement, estimated to be $63,238.55 in total, including, without limitation, Securities and Exchange Commission filing fees and expenses of compliance with state securities or “blue sky” laws; provided, however, a selling stockholder will pay all underwriting discounts and selling commissions, if any. We will indemnify the selling stockholders against liabilities, including some liabilities under the Securities Act in accordance with the registration rights agreements or the selling stockholders will be entitled to contribution. We may be indemnified by the selling stockholders against civil liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act that may arise from any written information furnished to us by the selling stockholder specifically for use in this prospectus, in accordance with the related registration rights agreements or we may be entitled to contribution.
Once sold under the registration statement, of which this prospectus forms a part, the shares of common stock will be freely tradable in the hands of persons other than our affiliates.
The following description of our capital stock and certain provisions of our certificate of incorporation, as amended, and bylaws are summaries and are qualified by reference to our certificate of incorporation, as amended, and our bylaws.
Our authorized capital stock consists of 100,000,000 shares of common stock, all with a par value of $0.01 per share and 5,000,000 shares of preferred stock, all with a par value of $0.0001 per share.
As of June 29, 2022, we had 302 holders of record of our common stock, which excludes stockholders whose shares were held in nominee or street name by brokers. The actual number of common stockholders is greater than the number of record holders and includes stockholders who are beneficial owners, but whose shares are held in street name by brokers and other nominees. This number of holders of record also does not include stockholders whose shares may be held in trust by other entities.
The holders of common stock are entitled to one vote per share on all matters to be voted upon by the stockholders. Subject to preferences that may be applicable to any outstanding preferred stock, the holders of common stock will be entitled to receive ratably such dividends, if any, as may be declared from time to time by the board of directors out of funds legally available therefor. In the event of our liquidation, dissolution or winding up, the holders of our common stock will be entitled to share ratably in all assets remaining after payment of liabilities, subject to prior distribution rights of preferred stock, if any, then outstanding. The holders of our common stock will have no preemptive or conversion rights or other subscription rights. There will be no redemption or sinking fund provisions applicable to our common stock.
As of June 29, 2022, we had 30,796,429 shares of our common stock outstanding.
Pursuant to the terms of our certificate of incorporation, our board of directors has the authority to issue preferred stock in one or more series and to fix the designations, powers, preferences and rights, and the qualifications, limitations or restrictions thereof, including dividend rights, conversion right, voting rights, terms of redemption, liquidation preferences and the number of shares constituting any class or series, without further vote or action by the stockholders.
On August 27, 2020, the board of directors established our Series B Preferred Stock that consists of 5,000 shares. The shares of Series B Preferred Stock have a stated value of $1,000 per share and are convertible into Common Stock at the election of the holder of the Series B Preferred Stock, at a price of $3.25 per share, subject to adjustment. Each holder of Series B Preferred Stock shall be entitled to receive, with respect to each share of Series B Preferred Stock then outstanding and held by such holder, dividends at the rate of thirteen percent (13%) per annum. As of June 29, 2022, we had 1,299,389 shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of our Series B Preferred Stock.
On October 4, 2021, the NASDAQ Stock Market approved the listing and registration of our 8.875% Series A Cumulative Perpetual Preferred Stock that consist of 1,400,000 shares, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Series A Preferred Stock”). The liquidation preference of each share of Series A Preferred Stock is $25.00. Each holder of Series A Preferred Stock shall be entitled to receive cumulative distributions from, and including, the date of original issuance, in the amount of $2.21875 per share each year, which is equivalent to 8.875% of the $25.00 liquidation preference per share.
The issuance of shares of preferred stock may decrease the amount of earnings and assets available for distribution to the holders of common stock, could adversely affect the rights and powers, including voting rights, of the common stock, and could have the effect of delaying, deterring or preventing a change of control of us or an unsolicited acquisition proposal.
As of June 29, 2022, there were 1,400,000 shares of preferred stock outstanding.
As of June 29, 2022, we had outstanding options to acquire 4,349,598 shares of our common stock, having a weighted-average exercise price of $6.85 per share.
As of June 29, 2022, we had outstanding warrants to purchase an aggregate of 3,859,637 shares of our common stock, having a weighted-average exercise price of $5.60 per share.
Anti-Takeover Effects of Delaware Law and Our Certificate of Incorporation and Bylaws
The following is a summary of certain provisions of Delaware law, our Certificate of Incorporation and our bylaws. This summary does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the corporate law of Delaware and our Certificate of Incorporation and bylaws.
Effect of Delaware Anti-Takeover Statute. We are subject to Section 203 of the Delaware General Corporation Law, an anti-takeover law. In general, Section 203 prohibits a Delaware corporation from engaging in any business combination (as defined below) with any interested stockholder (as defined below) for a period of three years following the date that the stockholder became an interested stockholder, subject to certain exceptions.
Section 203 defines “business combination” to include the following:
|●||any merger or consolidation involving the corporation and the interested stockholder;|
|●||any sale, transfer, pledge or other disposition of 10% or more of the assets of the corporation involving the interested stockholder;|
|●||subject to certain exceptions, any transaction that results in the issuance or transfer by the corporation of any stock of the corporation to the interested stockholder;|
|●||subject to limited exceptions, any transaction involving the corporation that has the effect of increasing the proportionate share of the stock of any class or series of the corporation beneficially owned by the interested stockholder; or|
|●||the receipt by the interested stockholder of the benefit of any loans, advances, guarantees, pledges or other financial benefits provided by or through the corporation.|
In general, Section 203 defines an interested stockholder as any entity or person beneficially owning 15% or more of the outstanding voting stock of the corporation, or who beneficially owns 15% or more of the outstanding voting stock of the corporation at any time within a three-year period immediately prior to the date of determining whether such person is an interested stockholder, and any entity or person affiliated with or controlling or controlled by any of these entities or persons.
Our Charter Documents. Our charter documents include provisions that may have the effect of discouraging, delaying or preventing a change in control or an unsolicited acquisition proposal that a stockholder might consider favorable, including a proposal that might result in the payment of a premium over the market price for the shares held by our stockholders. Certain of these provisions are summarized in the following paragraphs.
Effects of authorized but unissued common stock. One of the effects of the existence of authorized but unissued common stock may be to enable our board of directors to make more difficult or to discourage an attempt to obtain control of our Company by means of a merger, tender offer, proxy contest or otherwise, and thereby to protect the continuity of management. If, in the due exercise of its fiduciary obligations, the board of directors were to determine that a takeover proposal was not in our best interest, such shares could be issued by the board of directors without stockholder approval in one or more transactions that might prevent or render more difficult or costly the completion of the takeover transaction by diluting the voting or other rights of the proposed acquirer or insurgent stockholder group, by putting a substantial voting block in institutional or other hands that might undertake to support the position of the incumbent board of directors, by effecting an acquisition that might complicate or preclude the takeover, or otherwise.
Cumulative Voting. Our Certificate of Incorporation does not provide for cumulative voting in the election of directors, which would allow holders of less than a majority of the stock to elect some directors.
Special Meeting of Stockholders and Stockholder Action by Written Consent. A special meeting of stockholders may only be called by our president, chief executive officer, chairman of the board of directors, board of directors or such officers or other persons as our board may designate at any time and for any purpose or purposes as shall be stated in the notice of the meeting. A special meeting of stockholders may also be called by the Chairman of the Board of Directors upon written notice of demand by the President of the Corporation or the holder(s) of at least 25% of the outstanding voting shares of the Corporation.
Indemnification of Officers and Directors. The Company shall indemnify its officers and directors under the circumstances and to the full extent permitted by law. A director of the Company shall not be personally liable to the Company or its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director, except for liability (i) for any breach of the director’s duty of loyalty to the Company or its stockholders, (ii) for acts or omissions not in good faith or which involved intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, (iii) under Section 174 of the DGCL for unlawful payment of dividends or improper redemption of stock, or (iv) for any transaction from which the director derived an improper personal benefit. If the DGCL is hereafter amended to authorize the further elimination or limitation of the liability of directors, then the liability of a director of the Company, in addition to the limitation on personal liability provided herein, shall be limited to the fullest extent permitted by the DGCL, as amended. Any repeal or modification of this paragraph by the stockholders of the Company shall be prospective only, and shall not adversely affect any limitation on the personal liability of a director of the Company existing at the time of such repeal or modification.
