Company Reports 3Q EPS of $0.72 Which Includes a $78.9 Million Gain on Sharecare Investment
Company Sees Full Fiscal Year 2021 Revenue Exceeding $15.0 million
LAS VEGAS, Nov. 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Remark Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: MARK), a diversified global technology company with leading artificial intelligence ("AI") solutions and digital media properties, today announced financial results for its fiscal third quarter ended September 30, 2021.
Company Reports 3Q EPS of $0.72
"Our third quarter was highlighted by the continued advancement of our AI software and platforms. Our computer vision software was once again named one of the best in the world, and we delivered on a new platform for AI-driven safety in schools," noted Kai-Shing Tao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Remark Holdings. "Despite stringent, periodic citywide lockdowns associated with COVID-19 in China and a major U.S. customer slowing its product rollout due to technical difficulties, we have been able to achieve revenue through the first nine months of 2021 of $9.7 million, nearly matching full year 2020 revenue of $10.1 million. Finally, our long-term vision in large total addressable markets was manifested in the third quarter as we recognized a $78.9 million gain on our $1.0 million investment in Sharecare, providing us the building block to meet the capital requirements necessary to meet current demand while allowing us to continue to invest in areas that will assure future growth."
Third Quarter 2021 Business Highlights
During the third quarter, the latest Remark AI software achieved a top-five ranking in a computer-vision test (the Face Recognition Vendor Test, or "FRVT") conducted by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology. Specifically, 198 systems were tested in the FRVT for their ability to verify that a person is wearing a face mask.
Remark announced the receipt of a contract totaling $5.0 million to deliver the company's AI-driven workplace safety solutions to 100 industrial real estate construction sites. Primarily in Shanghai, Shenzhen and Guangzhou, 30 sites are expected to be installed by the end of the calendar year, with the balance completed by the end of the first quarter of 2022.
The Company entered into a definitive agreement with Armistice Capital in a private placement of 4,237,290 shares of common stock and warrants to purchase up to 4,237,290 shares of common stock at a combined purchase price of $1.18 per share and accompanying warrant for gross proceeds of approximately $5.0 million before deducting transaction fees and other estimated offering expenses. The warrants will have an exercise price of $1.35 per share, will be immediately exercisable and will expire five years from the date of an effective registration statement covering the shares underlying the warrants.
Finally, Remark launched an upgraded KanKan AI Platform for school campus management intended to meet educational reform and technology requirements in China. Additionally, the company announced the expansion of its distributor network, adding five resellers in existing and new territories throughout China.
Fiscal Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results
Revenue for the fiscal third quarter of 2021 totaled $1.2 million, a decline from $2.6 million during fiscal third quarter of 2020.
Gross profit fell to $0.4 million in the third quarter of 2021 from $1.0 million in the third quarter of 2020, commensurate with decreased revenue. The overall gross profit margin for the third quarter of 2021 was 30.8%.
The company incurred an operating loss of $6.7 million in the third quarter of 2021 compared to an operating loss of $3.1 million in the comparable quarter of 2020. The increase in operating loss is primarily attributable to the decline in gross profit and a $3.2 million increase to share-based compensation expense related to stock options originally issued in July of 2020 that had an accounting grant date of July 8, 2021.
Net income totaled $72.7 million, or $0.72 per diluted share in the third quarter ended September 30, 2021, compared to net income of $4.4 million, or $0.04 per diluted share in the third quarter ended September 30, 2020. The increase is primarily from the re-measurement of Remark's investment in Sharecare, Inc. after it became a public company in July of 2021. A gain on revaluation of the investment of $78.9 million resulted.
At September 30, 2021, cash balance totaled $3.1 million, compared to a cash balance of $0.9 million at December 31, 2020. The predominant contributors to the change were proceeds of $5.5 million from the equity offering in September 2021 and from stock option exercises, $4.8 million from a short-term debt issuance and $2.3 million proceeds from the Sharecare transaction, which were partially offset by $10.1 million of cash used in operations.
"Finally, we highlight our AI platform as an integral building block to position us for the ongoing transition to Web 3.0, including opportunities in the Metaverse and NFT markets, where our platform allows us to efficiently and rapidly enter these markets and capture initial business. With the fortification of our balance sheet, we are poised to continue growing core business in banking, schools and retail while expanding infrastructure and construction opportunities and simultaneously investing in Metaverse opportunities that leverage our brands," concluded Mr. Tao.

Few asset classes can match the volatility of cryptocurrencies. Naturally, companies like Marathon Digital Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: MARA)that operate in that space peg themselves to the volatility. Interestingly enough, despite the drop of 27% in a single session, this move has undone just two weeks of market movement.
Take for example both Lemonade (NYSE: LMND) and Upstart Holdings (NASDAQ: UPST). Lemonade posted a mostly outstanding quarter.

Apparently, when you're a marijuana investor, and the prospects for marijuana legalization suddenly get a lot brighter — in other words, it's a day like Monday. As of noon Monday, EST, shares of Canopy Growth (NASDAQ: CGC) were down 3% and Sundial Growers (NASDAQ: SNDL) was doing the opposite of growing — down 4.8% — in response to confirmation that the long-rumored Republican House bill to legalize marijuana has arrived. In contrast, shares of Curaleaf Holdings (OTC: CURLF) were headed higher, up 5.4% — which just goes to show how unpredictable marijuana stocks can be.

Shares of Home Depot Inc. rose 0.7% into record territory in premarket trading Tuesday, after the home improvement retailer reported fiscal third-quarter profit, net sales and same-store sales that rose above expectations. Net income for the quarter to Oct. 31 increased to $4.13 billion, or $3.92 a share, from $3.43 billion, or $3.18 a share, in the year-ago period, to beat the FactSet consensus for earnings per share of $3.42 by a wide margin.

Kyle Bass made winning bets against the housing market during the 2008-09 financial crisis. Here's what he's worried about now and how he thinks investors can protect themselves.
Professional contractors have been rushing back to Home Depot's stores as they look to upgrade their toolkits and source building materials to complete a backlog of home improvement and repair jobs that were put on hold during the health crisis. Rising home prices in the United States has also given people confidence to invest in upgrade jobs for their homes, while more millenials moving to suburban areas during the pandemic has expanded the core customer base of retailers like Home Depot. Home Depot said the average price paid per transaction rose nearly 13% in the quarter, boosted by more big-ticket purchases from builders.
