The registrant’s revenue increased to approximately $100.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, representing an increase of $55.4 million compared to approximately $44.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. The registrant’s loss from operations was approximately $26.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, an increase of $23.1 million compared to approximately $2.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021.

 

The increase in revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, was due to revenue from lending and trading activities of approximately $32.2 million, an increase compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2021 of approximately $19.6 million. Revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 included approximately $17.1 million from its majority owned subsidiary, The Singing Machine Company, Inc., which was acquired in June 2022. The registrant also had increases in its cryptocurrency mining operations of $10.7 million and from hotel operations of $12.8 million. The registrant acquired the hotel assets in December 2021.

 

The registrant’s operating expenses increased to approximately $74.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, representing an increase of $43.6 million compared to approximately $30.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021.

 

The increase in operating expenses from the nine months ended September 30, 2022, was due to the following:

 

· General and administrative expenses were $48.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, compared to $24.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, an increase of $24.3 million, or 100%. General and administrative expenses increased from the comparative prior period, mainly due to general and administrative costs of $4.3 million from the registrant’s hotel operations, which were acquired in December 2021, $2.6 million from The Singing Machine Company, which was acquired in June 2022, increased costs related to the Michigan data center, and higher legal expense, salaries, stock compensation and audit fees.

 

· Selling and marketing expenses were $20.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, compared to $4.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021, an increase of $16.2 million, or 345%. The increase was the result of higher marketing costs related to an advertising sponsorship agreement as well as increases in sales and marketing personnel, consultants primarily at the registrant’s Ault Alliance business segment. The Singing Machine Company, which was acquired in June 2022, incurred $0.9 million in selling and marketing costs. The increase is also attributable to costs incurred at to grow the registrant’s selling and marketing infrastructure related to its electric vehicle charger products.

 

     
 

 

· Research and development expenses increased by $0.2 million to $1.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, from $1.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. The increase in research and development expenses is due to product development efforts at the registrant’s TurnOnGreen and Gresham Worldwide defense business segments.

 

Interest expense was $35.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, compared to $0.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. The increase in interest expense relates to the $66.0 million of secured promissory notes issued in December 2021, which were fully paid in March 2022. Interest expense from these notes included the amortization of debt discount of $26.3 million from the issuance of warrants, a non-cash charge, and original issue discount, in connection with these secured promissory notes. In addition, the increase in interest expense is due, in part, to interest on the $55.1 million construction loans related to the December 2021 acquisition of hotel properties and interest on the $11 million secured promissory notes issued in August 2022.

 

The registrant’s net loss available to common stockholders was approximately $60.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, representing a decline of $61.3 million, compared to net income available to common stockholders of approximately $1.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2021.
