Management commentary by Patrick Bertagna, GTX Corp CEO:
During the second quarter of 2022, our core revenues started to trend back up post COVID, as we focused on ramping up production for our GPS SmartSoles, getting all of our international distributors back online by starting to fulfil their backorders, finishing our new NFC product which we expect to launch in Q3 2022, continued to support the Endstate NFC/NFT rollout, and attended the LD Micro conference to meet with investors and discuss our REG A.
Revenues were lower than anticipated for the second quarter 2022, partially due to a drop off in PPE sales compared to the previous period, and with ongoing supply chain disruptions, looming worries about the overall health of the economy, and general market volatilities, the core business ramped at a slower rate than expected, which also contributed to not meeting our revenue expectations. Under these challenging circumstances, we did however continue to see demand for our SmartSoles and have orders to fill throughout the rest of the year. More domestic product sales will subsequently increase our higher margin subscription business, which saw a 12% increase over the comparable previous period. Also, our Endstate NFC/NFT business is increasing and becoming steadier as we have hundreds of units on order every month to fill throughout the rest of the year. On the cash flow and balance sheet side, we kept a low burn rate and reduced our net losses by 23% from the comparable previous period, took on no new convertible debt, and senior management continued to defer between 34% to 40% of their compensation. The Company also raised from the Reg A, $150,000.00 at the above market price of $.03 per share.
With the continued demand for our SmartSoles we increased our production commitment for an additional 1,000 units. We released a new version of our tracking app along with a new ecommerce store on the Shopify platform, which enables us to have more capabilities to sell through social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram, along with having better accounting and inventory management capabilities as we start ramping up domestic sales. We also implemented Wi-Fi capabilities on the SmartSole platform which will enable us to track indoors and gets us one step closer to implementing the Bluetooth feature which will then convert the SmartSole from a tracking device to a mobile hub capable of interacting with other wearable medical devices.
With the recent spike in COVID cases across the country we did continue to see demand for protective medical supplies and fulfill orders daily. We still have a small amount of inventory on hand and solid relationships with our vendors, so as long as there is demand, we will be ready to fill orders for our customers. Our focus continues to be on ramping up sales of the new SmartSoles, NFC products, other medical wearable devices, A.I. and IP licensing. Post pandemic, everyone wants to be healthy, live better and longer, and know where someone or something is and has been. We believe we are in a position to monetize from these trends as we keep hearing from many of our B2B customers and international distributors that they want more wearable solutions and technology to serve the medical community.
