OVERALL PERFORMANCE
For the three months ended March 31, 2021 , the Company reported consolidated revenue of $3,277K , an increase of $1 ,754K or 115% from the comparative period in 2020. The increase in revenue is due to the completion of ongoing RS2D contract milestones and shipments of Nanalysis’ new flagship 100 MHz spectrometer. During the quarter Nanalysis recognized revenue related to six 100MHz units. The gradual ramp up of manufacturing limited production quantities in the first quarter, leaving Nanalysis with 22 100MHz orders in the growing order backlog.

As of March 31, 2021 the Company has $3,924K of unearned revenue ( December 31, 2021 $2,868K ), of which $1,144K relates to prepayments for the 100MHz. The increase was due to customer deposits on pre-orders for RS2D products, partially offset by shipments of the 100MHz against prepaid orders.

Gross profit for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was $2,122K (a margin of 65%) compared to gross profit of $982K (a margin of 64%) for Q1 2020.

The Company recorded earnings before other items of $267K , as compared to a loss before other items of $464K in Q1 2020. The Company’s comprehensive loss for the three months ended was $418K ( March 31, 2020 – $935K ), an improvement of $517K or 55% from the comparative period in 2020. The improvement is attributed to a significant increase in revenue, and increased finance income that has been partially offset by increased depreciation and amortization, increased stock-based compensation expense, increased research and development expenses, and RS2D earn-out payment.

FINANCIAL POSITION
At March 31, 2021 , the Company had $4,662K of working capital ( December 31, 2020 – $3,049K ), including $4,660K in cash ( December 31, 2020 – $3,158K ). The Company has an undrawn line of credit of $2,000K from its commercial bank and $167K of available borrowing on the Western Economic Diversification Canada interest free loan.

OUTLOOK
Sean Krakiwksy, CEO of the Company states “I am pleased to report solid first quarter 2021 financial results despite the negative impacts the global pandemic has had on our operations. Our efforts in 2020 are starting to manifest themselves in our results. The initial shipments of our 100MHz product, ongoing demand for our 60MHz, and continued interest in the RS2D product lines have contributed to our strong quarter. Manufacturing processes continue to be streamlined and standardized. This will increase the number of 100MHz units that were able to ship going forward, and we expect to reduce the order fulfillment lag time and clear our current order backlog.”

The Company has completed the first quarter with an increase of $1.5 million to working capital, a strong sales pipeline and continued demand for the new 100MHz product. The Company has successfully adapted to pandemic operations and believes that the eventual lifting of covid restrictions will only further boost growth. The Company is well-positioned to execute current initiatives and continues to drive new expansion opportunities. As always, we will do so while striving to deliver value to our shareholders.
