Financial Results

In Q2 2021, the Company generated increased revenue to $1.1 million, up 212% from $0.3 million in Q2 2020. The results are attributable to new listings with three large retailers, as well as increased e-commerce sales and sales to existing retailers for the Company’s flagship Rejuvenate™ product.

Element reported a net loss of $3.0 million in Q2 2021, as compared to a net loss of $0.1 million in Q2 2020. The impact of the increased revenue was offset by higher salaries wages, advertising and marketing costs, as well as higher professional fees. The increased expenses are attributable to an increased headcount, Rejuvenate™ launch campaigns, and audit and legal costs related to the Company’s public listing.
