"Our first quarter 2021 operating results reflected a positive trend and rebound in our markets as customers that had been reluctant to commit to larger purchases during the COVID-19 pandemic during 2020 began ordering at pre-pandemic levels,” said Vin Miceli, Chief Executive Officer of Nxt-ID. “I’m pleased with the Company’s overall performance in the first quarter of 2021, which reinforces the belt-tightening we made before the pandemic hit. I’m especially pleased with the significant term debt repayments the Company has made thus far in 2021, which approximate $8.8 million and which will save the Company approximately $1.1 million in cash interest expense on an annual basis.”
Added Mr. Miceli: “Halfway into the second quarter of 2021, the positive business trends are continuing. I look forward to providing additional commentary on the second quarter’s results, updating our shareholders and providing some additional context regarding our Company’s path forward.”
