LAKE FOREST, Calif., May 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ToughBuilt Industries, Inc. ("ToughBuilt") (NASDAQ: TBLT; TBLTW), today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022. The Company will discuss the results, among other things, during the Company’s earnings conference call scheduled for 5:00 p.m. (ET) today.
Financial Highlights for the Quarter Ended March 31, 2022:
- Revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2022, were approximately $17.2 million, an increase of 40% compared to the same period in 2021. The increase in revenue was primarily the result of wide acceptance of ToughBuilt products.

- Operating expenses were approximately $18.4 million in the first quarter of 2022, compared to approximately $9.4 million in the first quarter of 2021.
