Company Sees Jump in Revenues and Net Income for the Quarter

LiveWorld, Inc. (OTC Markets: LVWD), today announced financial results for the first quarter of 2021. Total revenues were approximately $2.2 million for the first quarter, as compared to the approximately $1.9 million reported for the same period in 2020. This was an increase of approximately $325,000 or 17% when compared to the first quarter of 2020. Healthcare related revenues grew approximately 24% when compared to the first quarter of 2020.

We reported a net income for the quarter of approximately $121,000 or 5% of total revenues. This compares to net loss of approximately $89,000 or 5% of total revenues reported for the first quarter of 2020. This improvement in the net income is a direct result of increased revenues and reduced operating expenses across the board.

We finished the first quarter with approximately $2.2 million in cash and cash equivalents, as compared to the approximately $2.6 million at the end of 2020. This reduction of $340,000 in cash was a result of the increase in our accounts receivable of approximately $1.0 million, and timing of the 2020 contract renewals with clients. The cash from operations was approximately $1.2 million which compares to the $335,000 in cash from operations for the first quarter of 2020. This is an increase of approximately $900,000 or 157%.

"Our first quarter fiscal results marked the fourth consecutive quarter of profitability for the company," said David Houston, Chief Financial Officer of LiveWorld. "Our recent financial performance has been a function of focusing on growing topline revenues and reducing our operating expenses. We anticipate some expansion in our operating lines as we look to increase our delivery of digital services in 2021. Additionally, we will increase our sales and marketing efforts to continue our growth while still maintaining a profitable bottom line."
