MEDS Stock Revenue Reports
Revenues for Q2 2021 were up to USD$1.9 million, down from the USD$6.6 million in the same quarter of the prior year. This year-over-year decrease was largely driven by non-recurring sales of personal protective equipment (PPE) in the 2020 quarter, in relation to global efforts to manage the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The second quarter of 2021 saw MEDS stock report gross profits in the amount of USD$0.8 million, representing 44.3% of the quarter’s revenues. This is comparable to the USD$2 million reported for the prior-year quarter, representing 30.4% of revenues. The substantial year-over-year increase in gross profit margin was largely driven by fewer lower margin PPE sales in the 2021 quarter. Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2021 came in at USD$3.4 million, up from the USD$2.5 million reported in the prior-year quarter. This increase was largely driven by an inventory investment loss of USD$1.2 million.

Armed with its expanding network of strategic collaborations and the success of its most recent financial reports, MEDS stock is poised to continue its trajectory of success. The company is keen to allocate resources so as to usher in further growth, with investors hoping for long-term increases in shareholder value.
