      Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results by EAST – How was the quarter?

      EAST announced third quarter 2021 results on 15th November 2021. According to the report issued by the company, the gross sales decreased to $3.3 million from $4.3 million. The drop was mostly due to lower revenue from canning and bottling compared to the previous year. Moreover, the operating expenses have been reduced to $2.7 million.

      Despite the adverse business environment, improved spirits resulted in a gross profit of more than 50%. Operating expenses have significantly decreased year over year, and EBITDA has improved year over year. Lastly, EAST has signed a non-binding term agreement with a financing consortium.

      Now what?

      Current ratio, net income, liquidity, shareholder equity, cash balance, debt maturity, spirits gross margin, operating expenditure, material sourcing, product price, and cash balance are among the most significant vital parameters that the company continues to improve.

      Unfortunately, the COVID pandemic’s residual impacts, the Company’s prior cash concerns, and the integration of the Azuia business have produced short-term sales challenges. The company has shifted its growth strategy to a three-year plan and expects sequential revenue increase going ahead, particularly as it enters 2022.
