·4 min read

TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / May 17, 2022 / NEXGENRX INC. ("NexgenRx" or the "Company") (TSXV:NXG) is pleased to announce its interim financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022, highlighted by continued net income, EBITDA and revenue growth, with the Company's net income and EBITDA for the quarter being $377,956 and $753,368 respectively, increases of $15,845 and $59,669 over Q1 2021. Similarly, Q1 revenue was 13.22% higher compared to the same period last year.

The 2021 financial year demonstrated the strengths of the NexgenRx business model and the virtues of the Company's financial management approach, as the Company achieved positive cash, EBITDA and shareholder free cash flow. As the 2021 financial year ended with a strong balance sheet position, the Company navigated into 2022 in good financial health and total dividends of $351,679.42 were paid out in February 2022 to all outstanding common and series 1 preferred shareholders.

The flexibility and strength of the Company's operating model and tremendous efforts of the Company's leadership teams allowed NexgenRx to end Q1 with solid results that are in line with the Company's objectives to protect its financial position and maintain its margin. Q1's 13.22% revenue growth (as compared to same period last year) reflected a healthy growth in transaction and administration revenues and exceptional growth in consulting revenue.

Total operating expense was $267,951 or 13.47% higher compared to the same period in the prior year, attributed to compensation adjustment, as well as the amortization of internally generated intangible assets when the major .NET re-write was completed. Management continues to carefully monitor and control all operating expenses. The Company has emphasized keeping its costs low, plus looking for further cost-reduction opportunities, and these efforts have shown their value in the Company's ability to generate increasing EBITDA and additional shareholder value.

While the full impact and duration of the pandemic continues to remain unknown, Management is committed to take all necessary steps to keep revenue and expenses aligned to maintain the continued growth and financial integrity of the Company.

Ron Loucks, President and CEO, stated: "Along with the rest of the NexgenRx Board and executive team, I am extremely pleased that we have paid our first dividend, in keeping with our policy of distributing cash to shareholders when it is prudent to do so. This demonstrates our confidence in the Company's business model and remains one of our overall strategic priorities. With another year characterized by extraordinary global and financial challenges, I am extremely proud of what we were able to accomplish. NexgenRx's foundational strength and the agility of our operating model, in addition to the unparalleled commitment of a resilient workforce, allowed us to finish the quarter with a solid performance and make progress across our strategic pillars, setting the stage for continued growth in 2022. As always, I would like to extend my sincere appreciation to our Board and dedicated staff who continue to work to keep us strong. I would also like to thank our dedicated customers and shareholders for their continued confidence in NexgenRx."

Commenting upon the Company's ongoing product developments, Mr. Loucks added "The significant step in the .NET re-write of our claims adjudication platform was completed in December 2021, and has now been fully implemented. We have now turned our focus to the NexAdmin platform and will be rolling out our new release over the summer. This giant step will add new functionality plus an enhanced member experience all in a newly developed web-based application. The user experience will feature a brand-new look and feel incorporating all of the latest market features into our proven robust administration platform. In addition, we continue to rapidly enroll more targeted healthcare providers to submit claims via our proprietary secure web-portal, theclaimsXchange.com.
