Net Revenue up 10% with Strong Subscription-Based Revenue Growth

Outlook for Continued Strong Overall Revenue Growth in Q1 2024

LAS VEGAS, April 1, 2024 — Healthy Extracts Inc. (OTCQB: HYEX), a platform for acquiring, developing, patenting, marketing, and distributing plant-based nutraceuticals that target select high-growth categories within the multibillion-dollar nutraceuticals market, reported results for the year ended December 31, 2023. All comparisons are to the year-ago period unless otherwise noted.

2023 Financial Highlights 

  • Net revenue increased 10% to $2.5 million, driven by product line and distribution channel expansion, as well as growth in subscription-based revenue.
  • Gross margin expanded to 65.2% from 60.9% due to a favorable shift to higher margin sales.
  • Net loss totaled $2.5 million or $(0.85) per basic and diluted share, primarily due to one-time costs associated with the company’s previously announced planned acquisition and related planned public offering and uplist to a major exchange, interest expense, and stock-based compensation (options and warrants valued under Black Sholes). Compares to net loss of $983,000 or $(0.34) per basic and diluted share in 2022.
  • Net loss totaled $499,000 or $(0.17) per share after excluding costs associated with the planned acquisition and public offering expenses, regulatory expense, stock-based compensation (comprised of options and warrants), change in fair value on derivative expense, and interest expense.
  • Direct-to-consumer subscription customers at December 31, 2023 increased 29% versus December 31, 2022, driving a 33% increase in subscription-based revenue for the full year of 2023.
  • Amazon “Subscribe & Save” customers at December 31, 2023 increased 20.7% versus December 31, 2022, driving 25% increase in subscription-based revenue for full year of 2023. Subscription growth helps reduce customer acquisition costs, increases traction, and provides greater visibility into future revenue.

Management Commentary

“In 2023, our record top line grew at a healthy double-digit pace as our product offerings, customer subscriptions, and distribution channels continued to expand,” commented Healthy Extracts president, Duke Pitts.

“The performance also drove another year of gross margin improvement. Improved manufacturing efficiencies and lower freight costs we implemented last year also helped expand gross margins. Altogether, these favorable trends contributed to positive operational cash flow for the quarter after excluding stock-based compensation and interest expense.

“We continue to advance toward listing our stock on a prominent U.S. stock exchange, a move we anticipate will bolster our visibility and amplify recognition of our achievements within the financial market. We believe this listing will also enhance shareholder value by providing increased liquidity.

“Later this year, we plan to introduce several new products through our diverse sales and distribution channels. Our growth strategy includes both organic expansion and strategic acquisitions, with a focus on targets that can leverage our extensive distribution network. Overall, we anticipate another robust year ahead for Healthy Extracts.”
