CEO Sees Continuing Strong Revenue Growth and Profitability in 2019

“During the second quarter 2019, we made excellent progress executing against our key strategic priorities in our Delivmeds.com program, our B2C commercial efforts and our proprietary B2B trading platform www.trxade.com, which enables independent pharmacies to purchase drugs at an average discount of between 15%-20%, enabling us to experience top and bottom line growth,” commented, Suren Ajjarapu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Trxade Group.

“Accordingly, I am optimistic that our new product lines will generate profitability as increasing pharmaceutical prices drive independent pharmacies, payors and consumers to be more aggressive in sourcing medication. In response to customer demand, we are actively developing new product offerings with increased data analytics capability which will help independent pharmacies better manage their inventory and costs,” Mr. Ajjarapu concluded.

Financial Results for the Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2019:

Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2019 were $1,916,414 vs. $837,688 in the year-ago quarter, an increase of 129%, and a 27% sequential increase over the first quarter ended March 31, 2019.
