IPOWER REPORTS FISCAL THIRD QUARTER RESULTS
Duarte, CA – June 24, 2021 – iPower Inc (NASDAQ: IPW) (“iPower” or the “Company”), one of the leading online hydroponic equipment suppliers and retailers in the United States, today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended March 31, 2021.
|·||Revenue grew by 34.4% to $13.1 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2021 as compared to $9.8 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2020.|
|·||Income from operations increased 132% to $788,734 in the quarter ended March 31, 2021 as compared to $340,185 in the quarter ended March 31, 2020.|
|·||Gross margin in the quarter was 43.9%, up from 32.3% in the quarter ended March 31, 2020.|
|·||Net income declined 194% to a loss of $206,823 in the quarter ended March 31,2021 as compared to net income of $220,724 in the quarter ended March 31, 2020. Income before Taxes and Net Income were negatively impacted by non-cash charges associated with the accounting treatment of Convertible Notes and Warrant liabilities in the quarter.|
“In our first earnings release as a public company, we are pleased to report a healthy fiscal third quarter, with strong year over year revenue growth. We are particularly happy with this quarter’s gross margin performance, which reflects our product design and development expertise, our strong merchandising capability, and customer recognition of the value proposition of our in-house brands,” said Lawrence Tan, Chairman and CEO of iPower. We finished the quarter with significant momentum as we were able to add inventory to meet customer demand and we saw some of the supply chain bottlenecks that had impacted the month of December 2020 and the first two months of 2021 begin to ease. We believe our data and technology driven approach to operating our business is paying dividends and will continue to accelerate our opportunities in the hydroponics industry and adjacent markets for the foreseeable future.”
The Company ended the quarter with approximately $474,000 in cash, working capital of approximately $4.6 million, and inventory of approximately $10 million.
“Our plan going forward is to issue annual financial targets for the business, starting with FY 2022 when we report our FY Q4 2021 results later this year,” said Kevin Vassily, Chief Financial Officer of iPower. “While we won’t comment on specific targets for the current fiscal year, we can say that the momentum we saw starting in March continued through the first two months of this quarter, and this is before any of the impact from investment into our supply chain after we completed our IPO in May.”
