  • Revenues in the Intimate Apparel Division increased by 468% or $1,478,710 to $1,794,529 from $315,819 in Q3 2020. The increase in Intimate Apparel revenue in 2021 versus 2020 was primarily attributable to the normalization of retail store operations in the United States following the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions.
  • Revenues in the Intelligent Fabrics Division, decreased by 18% or $506,220 to $2,333,329 from $2,839,549 in 2020, attributable to the elimination of high volume, low margin protective mask sales, due to a saturation of the mask market. Low margin mask sales have to a large extent now been replaced by high margin chemical sales, resulting in a substantial improvement in gross margins as discussed below.
  • Gross profit as a percentage of revenue was 48% in Q3 2021, compared to 30% in Q3 2020. The increase in gross profit percentage is mainly attributable to the product mix for the quarter, with a higher proportion of intimate apparel sales at higher margins, as well as the replacement of low margin mask sales with high margin chemical sales.
  • Gross profit dollars increased by 111% or $1,059,010 to $2,013,708 from $954,698 in Q3 2020, attributable to increased revenues and improved margins.
  • Net earnings before tax of $854,556 compared to a loss before tax of $634,859 in 2020, representing a turnaround of $1,489,415. The increase in net earnings in Q3 2021 versus Q3 2020 is largely attributable to increased revenue of $941,364, an increase in gross profit dollars of $1,059,010, and a reduction in share-based compensation of $496,602.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $900,721 compared to negative adjusted EBITDA of $93,205 in Q3 2020 representing an increase of $993,926.
  • The net earnings after tax attributable to iFabric's shareholders during Q3 2021 was $705,406 ($0.024 per share, basic and $0.023 per share diluted) compared to a net loss of $546,926 in Q3 2020 ($0.021 per share, basic and diluted), an increase of $1,252,332.
  • Other comprehensive loss, being unrealized currency differences on the translation of foreign operations, amounted to $68,795 compared to $177,399 in 2020. Total comprehensive earnings amounted to $643,445 in Q3 2021 compared to a comprehensive loss of $721,793 in 2020.

The calculation of working capital excludes a demand term loan of $1,237,507, which is shown as a current liability as required under International Financial Reporting Standards, but matures in 2032.
  • Cash decreased by $344,002 to $9,283,718 compared to $9,627,720 at the end of the previous quarter ended March 31, 2020, as a result of payments for new inventory.
  • The Company's bank operating line was unutilized as at June 30, 2021, leaving the full amount of $3,750,000 available to finance future business of the Company.
  • Shareholder Equity attributable to common shareholders was $21,617,783 as at June 30, 2021 compared to $20,975,519 at the end of the previous quarter, representing an increase of $642,264 as a result of the net earnings for the quarter.

NINE MONTH HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Revenues for the nine months ended June 30, 2021 were $14,559,390 compared to $8,063,396 for the comparable period in 2020, representing an increase of $6,495,994 or 81%. With respect to the reportable operating segments of the Company, revenue increased by 12% or $294,499 in its Intimate Apparel segment to $2,723,326 in 2021 from $2,428,827 in 2020 and, revenue increased by 113% or $6,240,844 in its Intelligent Fabrics segment to $11,752,151 in 2021 from $5,511,307 in 2020. Increased Intimate Apparel revenue was mainly due to the lifting COVID-19 restrictions in the United States and the resultant normalization of retail store operations. The higher revenues in the Intelligent Fabrics segment during the first nine months of 2021 compared to 2020 was primarily due to the fulfillment of a PPE contract, which was previously delayed due to supplier constraints in China, increased chemical sales and new finished apparel programs.
  • Gross profit for the nine months ended June 30, 2021 increased by 111% or $3,204,206 to $6,092,746 (42%) for the year to date in 2021 from $2,888,540 (36%) in the same period of 2020.
