First Quarter 2023 Financial Summary

Consolidated revenues for the first quarter of 2023 compared to the first quarter of 2022 decreased 31% to $2.2 million, compared to $3.2 million, respectively. The decrease in consolidated revenue was driven by decreased revenue attributed to our Trxade Prime subsidiary. The revenues generated by the TRxADE Platform in the first quarter of 2023 compared to 2022 increased 4% and Trxade Prime year over year revenue declined 70% in 2023 compared to 2022. The subsidiary company Community Specialty Pharmacy experienced a 16% increase in revenue for the first quarter 2023 compared to 2022.

Gross profit analysis of comparable fiscal periods of 2023 and 2022 reflect an increase in gross profits of $221,000 for the first quarter of 2023 compared to 2022. As a percent of revenue, consolidated gross profit increased to 69% for the comparable quarter periods of 2023 and 2022.

Operating expenses for the first quarter of 2023 were $1.9 million, compared to $2.3 million for the first quarter of 2022.

Net loss for the quarter ended March 31, 2023, was ($0.7) million, or ($0.07) per basic and diluted share outstanding, compared to a net loss of ($1.0) million, or ($0.12) per basic and diluted share outstanding for same period in 2022.

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, was ($0.06) million for the first quarter 2023, compared to ($0.7) million for the first quarter 2022. See "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information" below, and the reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to GAAP set forth at the end of this release.

Additional metrics related to our key performance are as follows:

For the three months ended March 31, 2023, the TRxADE Platform increased its registered users by 8%. Total registered users increased to approximately 14,500+ from 13,400+, as of March 31, 2023, and 2022, respectively. For the same comparable periods the TRxADE Platform revenues increased 4% from $1.38 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2022 to $1.44 million for the period ended 2023. Sales volume on the TRxADE Platform also increased year over year by 7% for the comparable fiscal period.

For the three-month period ended March 31, 2023, compared to the same period in 2022, Integra Pharma Solutions, LLC ("TRxADE Prime") revenue declined 69% from $1.6 million to $0.5 million.

TRxADE Prime also saw improvements in gross margin. For the first quarter 2023 gross margin was 12% compared to 1% for the first quarter 2022.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

In addition to our results calculated under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"), in this earnings release we also present EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA which are "non-GAAP financial measures" presented as supplemental measures of the Company's performance. They are not presented in accordance with GAAP. EBITDA represents net income (loss) attributable to TRxADE before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA before stock-based compensation expense, bad debt recovery, bad debt write-off, gain (loss) on disposal of asset, litigation expenses, loss (gain) on inventory investment, loss (gain) on impairment of intangible asset and change in fair value of warrant liability. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are presented because we believe they provide additional useful information to investors due to the various noncash items during the period. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are also frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in our industry. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors both because (1) they allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision-making and (2) they are used by our institutional investors and the analyst community to help them analyze the health of our business. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA have limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our operating results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect cash expenditures, future requirements for capital expenditures, or contractual commitments; EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, working capital needs; and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect the significant interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on debt or cash income tax payments. Although depreciation and amortization are noncash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA do not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements. Additionally, other companies may calculate EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA differently than TRxADE does, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are not recognized in accordance with GAAP, are unaudited, and have limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider them in isolation, or as substitutes for analysis of the Company's results as reported under GAAP. The Company's presentation of these measures should not be construed as an inference that future results will be unaffected by unusual or nonrecurring items. We compensate for these limitations by providing a reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure. We encourage investors and others to review our business, results of operations, and financial information in their entirety, not to rely on any single financial measure, and to view these non-GAAP measures in conjunction with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the section titled "Reconciliation of Net Income (Loss) attributable to TRxADE HEALTH, INC., to Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) and Adjusted EBITDA", included at the end of this release.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains certain statements that may be deemed to be "forward-looking statements" within the federal securities laws, including the safe harbor provisions under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.
