LogicMark, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2023 Results

Apr 18, 2024
Fourth Quarter Year Over Year Revenue Increased 13% and Gross Profit Increased 21%

LOUISVILLE, Ky., April 18, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LogicMark, Inc. (Nasdaq: LGMK), a provider of personal emergency response systems (PERS), health communications devices, and technology for the growing care economy, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2023. 

Chia-Lin Simmons, Chief Executive Officer, shared her thoughts on LogicMark’s results stating, “Our team’s remarkable accomplishments during 2023 are a testament to our collective dedication. We finished the year with strong momentum, increasing fourth-quarter revenues by 13% and improving gross profit by 21% year-over-year. Moreover, we achieved a 66% gross margin in the fourth quarter, an improvement of 450 bps from last year's fourth quarter. In addition to strong financial results, we expanded our software and technology suite to complement the launch of two new products.

“During the fourth quarter, we launched two highly anticipated products. Firstly, the Freedom Alert Plus is a unique Wi-Fi and touch-screen-enabled device. Secondly, the new 4G Freedom Alert Mini is a smaller form factor device to meet the needs of those on the go. Both products include monthly 24/7 monitoring service by US-based emergency operators and patented multi-sensor fall detection, providing safety, convenience, and peace of mind. These products are available for purchase at the new LogicMark store on Amazon.com and on our recently upgraded eCommerce website portal.

“We then kicked off 2024 with entry into a new market by releasing our subscription-based software application called Aster, now available on the Apple and Google Play Stores. This standalone software contains many features to provide peace of mind to users of all ages, allowing them to remain connected to their loved ones or caregivers. To complement the software, the LogicMark Bluetooth button can be attached to a pocket, key, or bag, and when paired with Aster, it can serve as a quick-access emergency device. Aster is an excellent example of how our Caring Platform as a Service (CPaaS) model can be leveraged to launch other IoT solutions.

“Looking ahead, we plan to expand our cellular-based product line and features to provide multi-layer safety support using CPaaS. This will allow us to integrate with various third-party connected and wearable devices and services to serve our customers at home or on the go. We are passionate about developing and implementing our technology solutions, utilizing leading-edge AI and machine learning tools to improve the quality of life for everyone,” concluded Ms. Simmons.

Fourth Quarter 2023 Financial Summary

  • Revenue in the fourth quarter of 2023 was $2.4 million, a 13% increase from $2.1 million in the same period last year. This quarter’s year-over-year comparison saw the end of one-time incremental sales in the prior year’s results due to the sunsetting of 3G service by the mobile carriers.
  • Gross profit in the fourth quarter of 2023 was $1.6 million, up 21% from $1.3 million in the same period last year. Gross profit improved from increased sales and cost reductions.
  • Gross margin improved to 66.0% in the fourth quarter of 2023, a 450 bp increase from the same period last year. In addition to the impact of selected price increases taken last July, improvements in both inbound and outbound shipping costs continue to be realized.
  • In the fourth quarter of 2023, a deemed dividend of $0.9 million was recorded due to the warrant inducement transaction completed in November 2023, as well as a $7.8 million goodwill impairment charge. Both expenses were non-cash.
  • Excluding the impact of the goodwill impairment charge, total operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2023 were $3.2 million, compared to $3.7 million in the same period last year, a 14% decrease.
  • Net loss was $1.73 per share on 1.7 million weighted shares outstanding in the quarter, excluding the impact of the impairment charge and deemed dividend, compared with a net loss of $5.23 per share on 0.5 million weighted shares outstanding in the prior-year quarter. Adding back the two non-cash charges, the net loss was $5.74 per share.

Full Year 2023 Financial Summary

  • Total annual revenue for 2023 was $9.9 million, a 17% decrease from the prior year's revenue of $11.9 million. This decrease was due to one-time revenues in the prior year’s results that were driven by replacement sales related to the 3G sunsetting by mobile carriers.
  • Gross profit was $6.7 million, down slightly from $7.2 million in the prior year. Cost reduction measures helped offset some of the impact from lower year-over-year revenues.
  • Gross margin improved to 67.1% in 2023, a 640 bp increase from the full year 2022. As was the case in the fourth quarter, much of the improvement resulted from lower inbound and outbound shipping costs.
  • Total operating expenses for the year were relatively unchanged at $14.2 million for the year ended 2023, compared with $14.1 million for the year ended 2022, excluding the recent quarter’s goodwill impairment charge.
  • The net loss for 2023 was $4.03 per share on 1.4 million weighted shares outstanding, compared with the prior year’s net loss of $15.15 per share on 0.5 million weighted shares outstanding, excluding the impact of the impairment charge and deemed dividend. Adding back the two non-cash charges, the 2023 net loss was $11.66 per share.

As of December 31, 2023, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $6.4 million, compared with $7.0 million at the end of December 2022. During the year ended December 31, 2023, the Company received gross proceeds of $6.4 million from issuing common stock, warrants, and the exercise of common stock purchase warrants.
