Financial Results for the Year Ended December 31, 2022
For the years ended December 31, 2022 and 2021, we recognized overall revenue from operations of approximately $40.6 million and $38.9 million, respectively. Net pharmacy revenues increased by approximately $1.7 million during the year ended December 31, 2022 when compared to the same period in 2021. The increase in revenue was primarily attributable to an increase in pharmacy revenue of approximately $2.4 million, an increase in 340B contract revenue of approximately $1.0 million, and a decrease in PBM fees of approximately $0.7 million, which was offset by a decrease in COVID-19 testing revenue of approximately $2.4 million, when compared to the prior year period.
We have filled approximately 463,000 and 443,000 prescriptions during the years ended December 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively, a 5% year-over-year increase in the number of prescriptions filled.
Gross profit margins decreased from 26% for the year ended December 31, 2021, to 24% for the year ended December 31, 2022. The decrease in gross profit margins was primarily attributable to the decrease in COVID-19 testing revenue during 2022.
The loss from operations increased by approximately $1.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2022, when compared to 2021, as a result of increased non-cash stock-based compensation.
Net (Loss) Income
Our net loss was negatively impacted by non-recurring and non-cash items. For the year ended December 31, 2022 we had a net loss of $5.9 million compared to net income of $0.2 million for 2021. The increase in net loss is primarily attributable to non-operating items such as grant revenue and interest expense, offset by other financing costs, noncash stock-based compensation, abandoned offering costs, loss from the adverse change in the fair value of derivative liability, and day one losses on issuance of stock units and debt modification.
