The Company shipped $1.4M in revenue and ended with an additional $1.9M backlog of sales for the period ending September 30, 2020. Further, as a result of the cost reduction measures implemented in 2019, the company reported increased gross margins of 38.1% for the nine months September 30, 2020, up from 32.5% during the three months ended September 30, 2019 and a gross profit of $0.5M for the third quarter 2020.

“While 2020 has not been without its challenges, I am proud to report that GrowLife continues to generate new sales, especially in our EZ-CLONE business, and further position ourselves to capitalize on the expanding opportunities in legalized hemp as well as the impending legalization of cannabis” said GrowLife CEO Marco Hegyi. “We recognize that shipping the $1.9M backlog of sales yet unshipped products could have brought us extremely close to profitability. Therefore, we are seeking to scale up production to meet demand by the majority owned EZ CLONE subsidiary. I believe we are taking all the necessary steps to realize this potential for our shareholders as soon as possible.”
