Revenues: For the three months ended March 31, 2024, VPR Brands reported revenues from product sales of $1,183,701, down from $3,039,354 in the same period in 2023. Royalty revenues, however, saw a significant increase, rising to $335,058 from $41,667. The decrease in total revenues was primarily driven by lower product sales, while the increase in royalty revenues was due to higher licensing income from intellectual property.

Cost of Sales and Gross Profit: The cost of sales for Q1 2024 was $1,041,903, a decrease from $2,557,348 in Q1 2023. Gross profit for the first quarter of 2024 was $476,856, compared to $523,673 in the same period last year. The gross margin for the first quarter of 2024 was 31%, up from 17% in Q1 2023, primarily due to a favorable product sales mix with a higher proportion of lower margin products.

Operating Expenses: Operating expenses for the quarter increased to $646,866, compared to $404,665 in Q1 2023. This increase was mainly attributable to higher administrative costs and strategic investments in growth initiatives.

Other Income: Net other income for Q1 2024 was $442,007, a substantial increase from a net  expense of $93,694 in Q1 2023. This increase was driven by legal settlement income of $486,639.

Net Income: Net income for the first quarter of 2024 was $203,059, a notable improvement compared to $25,314 in the same period last year. This increase was primarily due to higher royalty revenues and improved gross margins.

Liquidity and Capital Resources: Net cash provided by operating activities was $23,444 for Q1 2024, compared to net cash used of $281,528 in Q1 2023. The positive cash flow from operations was mainly a result of the company's net income, increases in vendor deposit assets, and royalty receivables, partially offset by increased inventory and decreased customer deposit liabilities.

Assets and Liabilities: As of March 31, 2024, VPR Brands had total assets of $3,103,269, slightly down from $3,191,246 as of December 31, 2023. Total liabilities decreased to $2,285,900 from $2,576,936 over the same period. The decrease in liabilities was due to repayments of convertible notes payable, notes payable to related parties, and lease liability principal.
