Financial Performance

Clinic revenues for Q2 2020 and Q2 2019 were $923,876 and $591,023, respectively. This increase above prior year is attributable to the acquisition of Sun Valley and the addition of 5 clinics which drove an increase in patient count from 4,299 in Q2 2019 to 6,696 in Q2 2020.

Direct clinic expenses for Q2 2020 and Q2 2019 were $243,905 and $82,750, respectively. This increase above prior year is attributable to the increase in number of patient visits.

Loss from operations for Q2 2020 and Q2 2019 were $240,614 and $1,424,071, respectively. This decrease in net loss from operations below prior year is primarily attributable to an increase in clinic profitability with the acquisition of Sun Valley and a decrease in salaries and benefits, legal and professional fees and non-cash share-based payments expense.

Net loss for Q2 2020 and Q2 2019 were $401,110 and $1,456,506, respectively. This decrease below prior year is primarily attributable to non-cash accretion expense related to the convertible debentures and the positive impact of the Sun Valley acquisition.

During the six months ended June 30, 2020, the Company generated $2,647 in cash from operations after changes in non-cash working capital.
