For the Year Ending December 31, 2021, Revenue Slips 8.5% Below 2020 Full Year Revenue But the GAAP Net Loss Decreased from $21.7 million to $5.3 million, a 75.9% Improvement.
Las Vegas, NV, April 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — 12 ReTech Corporation (OTC: RETC), announced today that it has filed its Form 10-K with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission for the year ended December 31, 2021, which include its financial results for the combined operations of the Company and its subsidiaries for its fiscal year ended December 31, 2021.
For the full year ended December 31, 2021, the Company reported revenues of $660,206 versus $721,312 in its prior fiscal year of 2020. This represents a revenue decrease of $61,106 or 8.5%. Revenues in 2020, a COVID-19 pandemic year, represents business generated in the first two months of that year for all stores and then one store during the last four months of 2020 at the Mohegan Sun resort. During March of 2020 thru August of 2020, operations at our store at the Mohegan Sun resort were shuttered by local government mandate. After February 2020 the rest of our stores at airports were closed and that continues through today as we have not yet reopened any of the airport stores. Revenues at our Rune NYC, LLC fashion apparel business were negatively affected in the same manner as the fashion boutiques of Rune’s other customers who faltered during the pandemic.
In September of 2020, we reopened our store at the Mohegan Sun resort which has operated at a much reduced level compared to past years. Store traffic as compared to prior years is significantly down since we reopened. This has carried over into all of 2021 as we saw reduced operating results throughout the year. As of today, we have not reopened any of our airport stores. Rune NYC, LLC’s fashion apparel business suffered a similar fate in 2021.
For the full year ending December 31, 2021, the Company’s net loss was $5,236,605 versus a net loss of $21,718,593 in 2020. This represents an improvement of $16,481,988 or 75.9% for the twelve months of 2021 when measured against the prior year’s results. Almost all the improvements were non-operational in nature. There were substantial improvements in the “Other Income (Expense)” categories which are shown in the table below.
The following represents a summary of our financial results. A complete copy of our 2021 Balance Sheet ad Income Statement are attached at the bottom of this press release.

Angelo Ponzetta, CEO of 12 ReTech Corporation commented, “The results for our fiscal year 2021, while improved, are not where we want to be. We are recovering from a two-year pandemic where most of our operational activities have been severely impacted since early 2020. We believe that this pandemic has permanently changed how people shop and interact with merchants, so we are changing directions and have invested into revamping our business for the future.”
Mr. Ponzetta continued, “During the last quarter we briefly discussed a new effort at creating a social shopping mobile APP. I would like to reiterate on our efforts here.”
“We are investing in and developing a social shopping mobile APP, which we are planning to beta test during the second half of 2022. This APP will be designed to bring consumers to smaller mom-and-pop retailers who are competing with large retailers such as Walmart and Amazon. We anticipate that these smaller retailers, who have physical as well as ecommerce operations, should receive new customers as a result of joining our network. We believe that they will be willing to pay us a fee when they sell something to their newfound clientele. Smaller retailers don’t typically have the resources to compete with large retailers who have the resources to corner a large share of the retail channel. Today, without our APP, smaller retailers might join forces with their larger competitors, only to find their ideas cannibalized by the same channels they use for marketing. Retailers in our network will pay us a fee when they receive a completed sales transaction. They will not have to pay us for “looky-loos”. We will communicate to investors as milestones are reached, but we are very excited about the potential game-changing nature of our new APP.”
“Non-GAAP Discussion of 2021 Financial Results”
On a non-GAAP basis, excluding the costs of non-cash financing, non-cash reserve expenses and any changes in derivative liabilities, the Company’s non-GAAP net loss in 2021 was $1,345,155 versus a non-GAAP net loss of $1,894,897 in 2020. This represents an improvement of $549,702 or 29.0% in non-GAAP net loss in 2021 when measured against 2020. Management believes the exclusion of non-cash financing, non-cash reserve expenses and derivative liability changes gives readers a more accurate view of the operations of the Company for the full year period ending December 31, 2021.

Angelo Ponzetta finished, “We need to change our path forward as a result of the shopper and merchant changes that have arrived during the pandemic. Therefore, we are investing in our mobile APP. Our belief is that the world of shopping has permanently changed and that is what we are aiming our efforts at in the future.”
About 12 ReTech Corporation:
12 ReTech Corporation is primarily a technology company focused on the retail experience, both online and in physical stores, for consumers and smaller merchants.
Our software, both deployed and in development, is designed to allow the smaller merchants to compete effectively with the retail behemoths like Walmart and Amazon, and to attract, retain, and delight consumers both online and in physical stores, without being dependent on Google, Facebook/Instagram, and Amazon.
Our A.I. Social Shopping platform APP, which is currently in development, will allow merchants to connect with consumers directly, and will give merchants tools to protect their brand and lower their marketing costs which will be focused on results, not just “looky-loos”.
For consumers, the APP allows them to support their favorite local businesses and find new merchants that may be of interest to them, while earning money through their social communications and posts.
The Company has also acquired retail and wholesale operating companies that will allow us to test our technology on real consumers and demonstrate their success for other merchants while earning revenues for the Company.
