Siyata Mobile SYTA reported 2nd quarter 2022 results on August 19th.
Revenues for the quarter ending June 30, 2022 were $969,528 compared to $356,979 for the 2nd quarter of 2021. This 172% increase over the prior year period was primarily due to the increase in the sale of rugged devices including the SD7 rugged handset during the quarter. The level of revenues was somewhat disappointing however we believe much of the expected sales during the quarter will push into the 2nd half of 2022 and beyond.
Gross profit for the 2nd quarter was $108,673 (gross margin of 11.2%) compared to negative $466,319 for the 2nd quarter of 2021. Gross margin in the quarter was negatively impacted by low margin sales of legacy products in the EMEA region which was offset by higher-margin sales of the new SD7 rugged handset.
Adjusted EBITDA was negative ($3,356,261) versus negative ($4,607,747) in the prior year period, an improvement of $1,251,486. The company defines adjusted EBITDA as the net operating loss excluding depreciation and amortization, intangible impairment, goodwill impairment, and stock compensation.
Net loss for the 2nd quarter was ($4,304,088) as compared to a net loss of ($10,862,538) in the prior year period. This positive change was due mainly to a one-time intangible impairment charge of $4,322,799 in the year ago period.
