Raised $1.0 million in Series B Preferred Stock from two institutional investors
Cartridge Sales Increased by 662% to Record $0.7 Million
On February 28, 2022, Jacksam partnered with Emerald Scientific, LLC making Convectium the exclusive provider of filling and capping systems to Emerald. Emerald Scientific has been an industry leader in the distribution of scientific supplies and equipment to cannabis and hemp labs and manufacturing facilities since 2012.Emerald has a proven track record of being a leading distributor in the space, driven by a world class sales team.
Mark Adams, Jacksam's Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are pleased with our first quarter results, especially our purchase order and interest activity around our 710 Shark filing systems, 710 Captain capping systems, PreRoll-ER pre-roll and cone filling systems and cartridges. We continue to see increased demand for our automated equipment solutions across the cannabis and CBD industries."
Adams, continued, "While revenue was up just slightly due to lower machine sales, we had record quarterly cartridge sales. Our ability to fulfill customer orders during the quarter was negatively impacted by the lockdown of major cities in China due to Covid-19, which caused shipping issues of systems from China to the U.S. Our continued focus on operation optimization and efficiency led to another decrease of operating expenses as a percentage of revenue."
Adams, concluded, "We have a strong base having now recorded 6 consecutive quarters of $1.3 to 1.9 million revenue with quarterly operating performance ranging from a negative $0.4 million to a profitable $0.1 million. We believe our strategy of providing automated equipment to address manufacturing and processing bottlenecks of our customers and increasing our predictable recurring revenue has positioned us well to become the premier solution provider in the industry."
Financial Results for Three Months Ended March 31, 2022
Revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2022 increased slightly by $0.0 million, or 0%, to $1.8 million, compared to $1.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

Revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2022 was negatively impacted by the lockdown of major cities in China due to Covid-19, which caused shipping issues of systems from China to the U.S. This adversely impacted our ability to fulfill the order of our customers during the quarter. However, lower machine sales were offset by record quarterly cartridge sales driven by our strong execution of strategic partnership and customer development.
Gross profit for the three months ended March 31, 2022 decreased by $0.1 million, or 19%, to $0.4 million, compared to $0.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021.
