The registrant’s revenue increased to approximately $21,000,000 for the year ended December 31, 2019, representing an increase of $3,300,000 compared to approximately $17,700,000 for the year ended December 31, 2018. The registrant’s net loss decreased to approximately $28,000,000 for the year ended December 31, 2019, representing a decrease of $5,000,000 compared to approximately $33,000,000 for the year ended December 31, 2018.

 

The increase in revenue was primarily due our acquisitions of Enertec Systems 2001 Ltd. and I. AM, Inc., both of which were completed in May 2018, offset by decreases in revenue from our cryptocurrency mining operations and on revenue from a related party for the manufacture of the Multiplex Laser Surface Enhancement plasma-laser system. A significant component of the decrease in our net loss was due to interest charges, amortization of debt discount and stock-based compensation. The registrant’s net loss for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, is comprised of non-cash charges of approximately $12,400,000 and $17,300,000, respectively.
