Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2020 were $11,448,036 as compared to $3,712,167 for the prior year, an increase of more than 200%. The increase in revenues was driven by a combination of new customers, new product introductions and increased supply of core product offerings. We realized gross profit of $1,072,942 or approximately 9.4% of revenues as compared to $220,421 or approximately 5.9% of revenues in the prior year. This is indicative of the solid progress we have made as our asset light operating model has been expanded in hand with the addition of new customers, new sources of supply and new product offerings, as well as a rationalized cost base.
