Financial h ighlights of the Third Quarter Ended September 3 0 , 2020

  • Revenues for the quarter were $192,473, lower than the same period in 2019, primarily due to pandemic-related restrictions and operational curtailments at our main customers' sites, which resulted in delays to previously planned ea1™ commercial and testing activities.
  • Gross margin the three-month period increased to 30.3% compared to 20.8% in the same period last year, driven by improved pricing and a more favourable product mix in the Agriculture division.
  • Revenues increased by 39.0%, to $2,112,631 for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2020 compared to $1,520,060 for the same period in 2019.
  • Gross margin for the nine-month period increased to 30.0% in 2020 compared to 22.1% in the same period in 2019, primarily due to higher volumes and improved pricing in the Agriculture division.
  • As at September 30, 2020, Earth Alive had $1,661,955 in working capital with a cash balance of $1,319,788, compared to $2,480,449, and $2,302,106 as at December 31, 2019.

"While third quarter revenues were weaker than expected as the impact of the seasonal slowdown was compounded by various COVID-related issues affecting our customers, I am pleased to report that business activity has picked up since the end of September and that future prospects for the Company remain strong", said Michael Warren, President and Chief Executive Officer. "In fact, Earth Alive's fourth quarter results are expected to show a marked improvement compared to the third quarter, with revenues between $700,000 and $800,000 and gross margin as a percentage of revenues remaining consistent with recent levels".
