Management Commentary

Mark Adams, Jacksam’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are pleased with our second quarter and first half 2022 results, given the headwinds in the cannabis industry and the challenges many of the producers are experiencing. Our sales pipeline remains strong and we are confident in our products and believe it’s just a matter of when, not if, the industry returns to growth.”

 

Adams, continued, “Our system sales declined primarily due to shipping delays from China and some customers pushing out, but not cancelling, their orders. Our recurring cartridge sales continue to ramp, as that revenue contributor grew 329% year-to-date to $1.1 million. On the cost side of our business, we continued to keep expenses low and operate efficiently, resulting in a further decline of operating expenses as a percentage of revenue to 34% and 28% for the second quarter and first of 2022, respectively. We look forward to returning to growth over the remainder of 2022 and into 2023, with an eye on profitability as we have optimized our operations for efficiency.”

 

Financial Results for Three Months Ended June 30, 2022

  • Revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2022 decreased by $0.2 million, or 12%, to $1.5 million, compared to $1.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021. For the three months ended June 30, 2022, the breakdown of sales comprised of $1.2 million of system sales and $0.3 million of cartridge sales, compared to $1.5 million of system sales and $0.1 million of cartridge sales for the three months ended June 30, 2021.

Revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2022 was negatively impacted by the lockdown of major cities in China due to Covid-19, which caused shipping issues of systems from China to the U.S. This adversely impacted our ability to fulfill orders of our customers during the quarter. However, lower machine sales were offset by higher cartridge sales driven by our strong execution of strategic partnerships that drive recurring cartridge revenue.
