Q1 Highlighted by Two Acquisitions

JUPITER, FL / ACCESSWIRE / May 18, 2021 / Transportation and Logistics Systems, Inc. (OTC PINK:TLSS), ("TLSS", or the "Company"), an eCommerce fulfillment service provider, announced today that on May 17, 2021, it filed its Form 10-Q, Quarterly Report for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021.

John Mercadante, Chairman and CEO of TLSS, commented, "The first quarter of 2021 is indicative of the Company's continued positive progress since commencing its restructuring initiatives in mid-February 2020 and then navigating the termination of its unprofitable Amazon DSP business at the end of September 2020. The Company has started to rebuild its revenue base with two acquisitions completed in January and March of 2021. Moreover, we continue to evaluate and pursue opportunities that could further strengthen our balance sheet and profitably grow the business, with the goal of enhancing shareholder value."

Financial Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2021

Revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2021 decreased $7,143,000, or 82.7%, to $1,492,000, as compared to $8,635,000, for the same period in 2021. Such decrease was due primarily to the termination of the Company's former Amazon Delivery Service Provider ("DSP") business as of September 30, 2020.

The Company generated a net loss attributable to common shareholders for the three months ended March 31, 2021 of $3,099,000, as compared to a net loss attributable to common shareholders of $22,149,000 for the same period last year. This quarter's results were comprised of: (i) a loss from operations of $1,636,000; (ii) interest expense of $106,000; (iii) non-cash derivative expense of $695,000; and (iv) non-cash deemed dividend related to ratchet adjustment, beneficial conversion features, and accrued dividends of $830,000; and which were partially offset by: (i) other income $108,000 and (ii) gain from extinguishment of debt of $60,000.
