Winnipeg, Manitoba--(Newsfile Corp. - November 29, 2021) - Novra Technologies Inc. (TSXV: NVI) ("Novra") has announced its financial results for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. All amounts are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise noted.
First Nine Months 2021 Consolidated Financial Results
Novra's financial results for the first nine months of 2021 were significantly improved over the same period in 2020, with top line revenue growing 72% to $5.7 million and net income loss improving by $1.6 million. However, continued global supply chain and transport disruptions have prevented us from achieving the significant profits we were expecting for this period. Over $4 million in backlogged orders that we anticipated delivering in Q3 or early Q4 will now be delivered in late Q4 and into Q1 2022. This has negatively impacted our Q3 revenue expectations by $3 to $4 million and we expect to recognise this revenue in the next two quarters. We are working with our suppliers and partners to aggressively manage these supply chain disruptions and delivery challenges.

The significant increase in revenue for the period, coupled with a 6% reduction in operating expenses, resulted in adjusted EBITDA(2) of positive $900 thousand for the period, an improvement of more than $1.7 million over 2020. This indicates a substantial improvement in the results of Novra's core operating activities.
Gross profit for the current period was slightly lower at 48.5%, a reduction of 5% compared to 2020. This reduction resulted from changes in our product/service mix, as well as the rising input costs that have been felt by manufacturers around the world. We have recently adjusted product pricing in response to those cost increases.
Due to COVID-19's fourth wave and the new Omicron variant, we expect continued volatility in our revenue and income over the next few quarters as we do not know the impact on our clients and the global economy in general. Novra currently has an order backlog of approximately $4.7 million and at September 30, 2021 we also had more than $1.1 million in deferred revenue. Together these provide some visibility into future revenue for the remainder of 2021 and beyond.
"Although our results for the first nine months of 2021 are very encouraging with revenue growth of 72% and an adjusted EBITDA improvement of $1.7 million, we are disappointed that global supply chain issues are still persistent and have shifted significant expected revenue and income for orders we have already received out to the next two quarters. We are optimistic that the global economy is starting to adapt and operate in the age of COVID-19 and that pervasive supply chain challenges will subside to allow us to deliver our order backlog in a timely manner," said Harris Liontas, President and CEO. "I appreciate and thank our clients for their patience and understanding during these very challenging times that all manufactures are going through, as well as their trust in us and our products to deliver their mission critical services."
