Ms. Chia-Lin Simmons, Chief Executive Officer of LogicMark, commented, “In the third quarter, we made significant strides with our Care Village ecosystem as our catalog of innovative products, services, and intellectual property expanded. With the successful launch of the new Freedom Alert Plus, our focus now turns to the release of another new PERS product in the weeks ahead. This will mark our second product launch this year and we are delighted to report that the initial feedback during testing has been very positive, particularly regarding its compact design, GPS location service, and fall detection feature."

“I’m pleased to see that our new product launches are gaining traction, as we introduce a variety of industry-leading solutions with modern technology to meet on-the-go and at-home customer needs. We pride ourselves on offering options for every budget, including premium Wi-Fi-connected devices with a monthly subscription service, continuous monitoring, and automatic software updates through our Care Village application.

Third Quarter 2023 Results  

Revenue for the third quarter ended September 30, 2023, was $2.4 million compared with $2.8 million in the same period last year. The decrease in year-over-year revenues was due to one-time replacement sales in the same period last year of Freedom Alert 911 Plus 4G PERS units replacing older 3G units, as the national cellular network carriers announced in 2022 that they would no longer support 3G networks.

Gross profit margin in the third quarter was 67%, or five percentage points higher compared with 62% in the prior year period. The higher margin was due to improvements in the Company’s supply chain management, including a shift from air freight to transpacific shipping from Asia-based contract manufacturers, as well as a competitive bidding process to obtain optimal shipping rates to all domestic customers. Gross profit in the third quarter of this year was $1.6 million compared to $1.7 million in the same period last year.

Total operating expenses in the third quarter of 2023 were $3.4 million, decreasing 12% or $0.5 million, compared with the same period last year and down 13% quarter-over-quarter. The lower operating expenses year-over-year were mainly due to a reduction in general and administrative expenses, slightly offset by higher selling and marketing expenses.

Net loss attributable to common shareholders for the third quarter was $1.5 million compared with a net loss of $2.2 million in the same period last year.   On a fully diluted basis, the net loss per share was $1.10, compared with a net loss of $4.53 per share in the prior period. The year-over-year earnings per common share comparison includes a 1-for-20 reverse split of outstanding common stock that took place in the second quarter of 2023.

As of September 30, 2023, the cash and cash equivalents balance was $6.7 million, compared with $7.0 million at the end of December 2022.
