April 11, 2024 4:38 PM

Company Expands Healthcare and Technology Focus Through the Launch of its E-Commerce Development Program with Alibaba's Tmall Global and Strategic Investment in Progressive Care Inc.

COCONUT GROVE, Fla., April 11, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- NextPlat Corp (NASDAQ: NXPL, NXPLW) ("NextPlat" or the "Company"), a global e-Commerce provider, today announced the financial results for the fiscal year-ended December 31, 2023 which consolidates the operations of its e-commerce business with the results of its healthcare operations, Progressive Care Inc. (OTCQB: RXMD) ("Progressive Care").

"Central to our growth plans for NextPlat in 2023 were efforts to increase our long-term participation in the high growth healthcare and consumer products sectors and the expansion of our business into large new international markets such as in China through our partnership with Alibaba. I am proud to report that in 2023, we made significant progress against these growth initiatives, highlighted by our announcement of an e-Commerce Development Program with OPKO Healthcare, who selected us to launch their online storefront in China, and our expanded strategic investment into Progressive Care, our new healthcare subsidiary. These developments, along with the planned launch of new products such as our Florida Sunshine brand of premium-grade vitamins and dietary supplements, represent significant opportunities for NextPlat to generate profitable new revenue streams, creating value for our clients, their customers, and our shareholders this year," said Charles M. Fernandez, Executive Chairman and CEO of NextPlat Corp.

Full Year 2023 Financial Highlights:

  • Consolidated revenues for the full year ended December 31, 2023, were approximately $37.8 million, an increase of over 222% versus revenue of approximately $11.7 million for the full year ending December 31, 2022. Results for the full year ended December 2023 reflect e-commerce revenue of approximately $11.0 million and approximately $26.8 million in revenue contributed from the Company's healthcare operations (specifically, Progressive Care whose results are consolidated as of July 1, 2023).
  • Gross margins for the full year ended December 31, 2023, increased significantly to 30%, up from 21% reported for the year ended December 31, 2022, primarily attributable to the healthcare operations because of the Progressive Care consolidation. Gross profit margin attributable to our healthcare operations was approximately 32% (for the consolidation period). Our e-commerce profit margins improved to 26% from 21% reported in the year ended December 2022, driven largely by continued increases in the sales of higher margin, recurring airtime revenue.
  • Operating expenses for the year ended December 31, 2023, were approximately $34.5 million compared to approximately $9.7 million in the year-ago period. The increase was primarily driven by expenses including stock-based compensation of approximately $2.4 million (non-cash expense), operating expenses of approximately $2.4 million and salaries and wages of approximately $4.1 million attributable to the healthcare operations as a result of the Progressive Care acquisition as of July 1, 2023, depreciation and amortization expenses of approximately $1.6 million, and net other operating expense of approximately $0.4 million. Operating expenses in 2023 also included a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of approximately $13.9 million related to the Progressive Care acquisition.
  • Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2023, was approximately $3.8 million, or $0.22 diluted earnings per share compared to a net loss of approximately $9.2 million, or $0.96 diluted earnings per share reported for the year ended December 31, 2022. Net loss for the full year of 2023 includes a one-time gain on remeasurement of fair value of equity interest in affiliate of approximately $11.4 million (non-cash gain) related to the change in accounting method due to the Progressive Care consolidation as of July 1, 2023.
  • The Company ended the 2023 fiscal year with approximately $26.3 million in cash.

Organizational Highlights and Recent Business Developments:

  • The Company's technology e-commerce business continued to see positive increases in global transaction volumes for satellite phones and tracking devices as demand for high margin, recurring airtime contracts remained at record monthly levels. Transaction volume growth in 2023 largely offset the unprecedented surge in demand for connectivity solutions following the outbreak of war in Ukraine in 2022 and economic weakness in certain European markets.
  • The Company's healthcare business, Progressive Care, saw continued growth driven by significant increases in its pharmacy prescription volumes as well as multiple new 340B services contracts secured in the fourth quarter of 2023.
  • Effective as of July 1, 2023, Progressive Care became a consolidated subsidiary of NextPlat for accounting purposes as a result of the controlling interest in Progressive Care obtained by the Company in concert with the Company's Executive Chairman and CEO, Charles M. Fernandez, and its Director, Rodney Barreto.
  • On March 1, 2024, NextPlat launched the exclusive OPKO Healthcare ("OPKO")-branded storefront in China on Alibaba's Tmall Global platform. The OPKO storefront initially lists health and wellness products including an assortment of nutraceuticals for bone, joint and eye health as well as supplements for nutrition and immunity and defense, the sales of which will create a new international e-commerce revenue stream for the Company. NextPlat intends to significantly expand the OPKO online storefront with a wide array of veterinary and animal health products early in the second quarter of 2024 subject to receipt of the final government approvals.
  • On March 26, 2024, NextPlat expanded its North American technology e-commerce business with acquisition of Outfitter Satellite Inc. This accretive acquisition is expected to more than double the Company's North American technology e-commerce product sales and recurring revenue, driving increased profitability through improved business efficiencies and shared resources while supporting future domestic operations and distribution.

David Phipps, President of NextPlat and CEO of Global Operations, added, "With a global presence in 18 countries across 5 continents, which enables us to serve customers in more than 165 countries, we are providing unmatched global reach for our partners and customers. We are encouraged by the continued ability of our platform to support our customers and through our e-commerce development program with Alibaba and its Tmall Global platform in China, we are now able to provide truly global online market access for products of all types. We are excited about the potential of the Chinese market for American-made products, especially health and wellness products such as OPKO's and are looking forward to supporting additional brand and product launches this year including our own Florida Sunshine-branded products."
