LogicMark Inc. Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2021 Financial and Operational Results

Apr 19, 2022

LOUISVILLE, Ky., April 19, 2022  /PRNewswire/ -- LogicMark, Inc. (Nasdaq: LGMK) (the "Company" or "LogicMark") (formerly Nxt-ID, Inc.), a provider of personal emergency response systems (PERS), health communications devices, and IoT technology for the growing Care Economy, announces financial and operating results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2021.  

Chia-Lin Simmons, LogicMark's Chief Executive Officer, commented, "As we close the books on 2021, we open a new chapter for our company, which focuses on building a growth-oriented technology platform.  Last year was a transition period for our Company as I assumed the role of CEO in mid-June and began assessing how to best reorganize and define the resources needed for success.  We used the time to identify and begin to address leadership, financial, and operational weaknesses to position the Company for future growth.  This included successfully regaining Nasdaq compliance and cleaning up the balance sheet, which resulted in year-end charges. 

"LogicMark entered 2022 with a fresh start and new strategy.  We believe our Caring Platform as a Service (CPaaS) is an innovative approach that not only leverages our core business, but also positions it to create new products and enter new markets.  Based on this, we changed the Company name to LogicMark, Inc., dedicated to the goal of an expanded footprint in the Care Economy through health communications and connected devices.  The new corporate identity comes from one of our operating divisions of the same name, capitalizing on its strong reputation within the PERS industry and with the U.S. Veteran's Administration.  

"Since late last year, LogicMark has been actively working on the 3G transition in partnership with the Veterans Administration. By the end of 2022, many of the largest U.S. wireless carriers will shut down their 3G networks and many of our users are not familiar with the steps needed to transition their 3G devices.  Using education, mailings, and media outreach, we have facilitated the replacement of thousands of customer devices with our 4G powered products," added Ms. Simmons.   

"In addition, LogicMark recently welcomed four seasoned executives with diverse skill sets to help lead new financial and operational initiatives that the company believes will build shareholder value.  The permanent appointment of Mark Archer as Chief Financial Officer will strengthen governance with additional financial controls and reporting, optimize the capital structure, and enable the thorough review of potential future acquisitions.  Rafael Saavedra joined as VP of Engineering to expand the Company's knowledge of cutting-edge technologies and introduce expanded product lines. 

"Two new Board members also joined in the first quarter of 2022. Sherice Torres will contribute significant marketing experience gained while working for large companies, including Nickelodeon, Google and Meta. Internet pioneer John Pettitt joined the Board and brings deep experience in multiple technology domains including web and mobile technologies, patents, and ecommerce.  Both will help steer the many exciting changes planned at LogicMark.   

"As we entered 2022, we have seen strong demand for our 4G products as 3G networks are being phased out, which we expect to positively impact sales in the first quarter.  As we look ahead to the second quarter, we plan to launch new business partnerships, products and an e-commerce website targeted at the direct-to-consumer market.  These steps are meant to supplement our existing line of at-home and on-the-go solutions.  New software and personal safety services will broaden our health communications software beyond our core audience of veterans and the elderly," concluded Ms. Simmons.   

Summary results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2021 include the following:  

  • Revenue was $2.4 million, a decrease of 6% from the fourth quarter of last year, but up 1% from the prior quarter.
  • Gross profit was $1.0 million, a decrease of $0.1 million, compared to the same quarter last year.  Gross margin was 43%, compared to 46% in the same quarter last year.  The reduction in gross margin was due to a mix shift to our costlier Guardian Alert 911 Plus 4G unit.
  • Operating expenses were $7.1 million, compared to $2.2 million in the same quarter last year. Expenses in the fourth quarter of 2021 included a $4.5 million non-cash goodwill impairment charge.
