GrowLife Announced Revenues of $2.3 Million for Second Quarter Ending June 30, 2014

SEATTLE --(Business Wire)--

GrowLife, Inc. (OTC: PHOT), one of the largest cultivation service providers in the nation, reported results for the second quarter ending on June 30, 2014. The Company recognized revenues of $2.3 million for the quarter, and maintained a 22% gross margin for the second consecutive quarter in 2014.

"GrowLife's strong revenue growth in the first six months of 2014 represents 159% increase over last year, and 167% gross margin lift," said Marco Hegyi, President of GrowLife, Inc. "While the performance of our new streamlined business operations including our direct-to-cultivators service remains to be fully realized, we believe GrowLife expects to sustain its traction in the market for the rest of 2014."

Mr. Hegyi, who assumed leadership over the Company in the second quarter 2014, reduced losses by shrinking operational expenses. Under his leadership, the Company has met market expectations with a leaner team that pushes forward to serve customers in 17 states. Additional states will be added by the end of the year.

"Our customers, as well as our suppliers, have responded well to our direct-to-cultivator strategy which provides logistics and contractual services," said Hegyi. "We've filled a void in the market by delivering supplies and equipment necessary for the design, build out and expansion of their facilities directly to cultivators."

Noteworthy details from today's extensive quarterly report are as follows:
