The registrant’s revenue increased to approximately $52.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2021, representing an increase of $29.0 million compared to approximately $23.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2020. The registrant’s loss from continuing operations was approximately $17.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2021, an increase of $11.3 million compared to a loss from continuing operations of approximately $6.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2020.
The increase in revenue from the year ended December 31, 2020, was due to an increase in revenue from lending and trading activities of approximately $17.1 million attributed to a significant allocation of capital from equity financing transactions to the Company’s loan and investment portfolio, coupled with an increase in revenue from the registrant’s customized solutions for the military markets, including approximately $6.4 million from Relec Electronics, which was acquired on November 30, 2020. Further, the Company’s cryptocurrency mining operations accounted for $3.5 million of the overall increase in revenues.
The registrant’s operating expenses increased to approximately $48.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2021, representing an increase of $34.7 million compared to approximately $13.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2020.
The increase in operating expenses from the year ended December 31, 2020, was due to the following:
|·||Engineering and product development expenses increased by approximately $200,000 due to costs incurred at TurnOnGreen related to the development of the registrant’s electric vehicle charger products.|
|·||Selling and marketing expenses increased approximately $5.9 million as a result of increases in sales and marketing personnel and consultants primarily at Ault Alliance related to digital marketing and digital learning. The increase is also attributable to costs incurred at TurnOnGreen to grow its selling and marketing infrastructure related to its electric vehicle charger products.|
|·||General and administrative expenses increased approximately $26.1 million mainly due to higher stock compensation, consulting, audit, legal and insurance costs. In addition, general and administrative costs increased related to the Michigan Data Center, operated by Alliance Cloud Services, which was not in operation during 2020. The Michigan Data Center was acquired in January 2021 and has since undergone significant renovations to accommodate the Company’s cryptocurrency mining operations and the significant investment the Company has recently made in S19j model Antminers. General and administrative expenses during the year ended December 31, 2021 include $1.1 million of costs from Relec, which was acquired on November 30, 2020.|
The registrant’s net loss available to common stockholders was approximately $14.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2021, representing an improvement of $18.7 million, compared to a net loss available to common stockholders of approximately $32.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2020.
