MIAMI, FL / ACCESSWIRE / August 12, 2022 / SKYX Platforms Corp. (NASDAQ:SKYX) (d/b/a 'Sky Technologies,' 'SKYX' or 'the Company'), a Company significantly enhancing safety in homes and buildings as well as smart home lifestyle, with highly disruptive smart platform technologies and over 60 issued and pending patents globally, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.
Historic U.S. Standardization Approval Vote
The Company achieved historic U.S. standardization approval vote by ANSI / NEMA, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), for its safe plug & play ceiling outlet/receptacle.
This month, the Company intends to release a demonstration video of its Gen-1 platform - the safe plug & play ceiling outlet/receptacle - in both standard and smart variants.
SKYX's universal safe installation specifications for a plug and play ceiling outlet for lighting and fan products has been officially voted on and approved during the third quarter of 2022 by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), the leading U.S. standardization organizations for the standardization of the SKYX safe weight-bearing plug and outlet/receptacle for ceilings ('SkyPlug'). ANSI is a U.S. standards approval organization, whose standards are regularly specified by most architects and engineers for U.S. residential and commercial buildings to ensure safety, quality and reliability. NEMA is a standards-developing organization that promotes the standardization of major U.S. electrical products for manufacturers.
Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results
Selling, general and administrative expenses ('SG&A') amounted to $4.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022, as compared to $1.0 million in the same year-ago quarter. The increased expenses were primarily driven by $2.3 million in non-cash stock-based compensation expense.
Adjusted SG&A, a non-GAAP measure excluding stock-based compensation, for the three months ended June 30, 2022 amounted to $2.1 million, as compared to $3.2 million in the first quarter of 2022.
Cash used in operations for the six months ended June 30, 2022 amounted to $6.2 million, as compared to $1.8 million in the same year-ago period.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURE
Management considers selling, general, and administrative expenses, adjusted for non-cash stock compensation, an important indicator in evaluating our business consistently, for strategic and operational purposes (e.g., the use of cash in our operating activities). We use such primary measure to analyze and evaluate the use of our liquidity and intend to continue using such measure until we generate revenues. Such measure eliminates items that do not involve cash outlay. This measure should be considered in addition to, rather than as a substitute, for selling, general and administrative expenses. This non-GAAP financial measure excludes significant expenses that are required by GAAP to be recorded in our financial statements and is subject to inherent limitations. Investors should review the reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to the comparable GAAP financial measure that is included below. Investors should not rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.
