WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., May 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- GrowLife, Inc., (OTC: PHOT), the recognized leader in specialty hydroponics and an essential facilitator of the grower marketplace, announced the timely filing of its 10Q report and financial results for the quarter ending March 31, 2014. The full 10Q filing is available in its entirety at www.GrowLifeInc.com or on the SEC's website http://edgar.sec.gov/.

GrowLife revenues for its first financial quarter of 2014 increased to $2,382,836, from $760,709 in the same period last year, an increase of $1,622,127 or 213% compared against revenues in Q1 2013. By the same measures, gross profit increased $270,752 comparing the respective quarters, or 108%.

"We are very pleased with the Q1 2014 financial results, as the revenue growth exceeded our internal goals for Q1," stated GrowLife CEO and Chairman Sterling Scott. "We continue to witness a strong revenue growth trajectory moving in the right direction, and GrowLife management will increase efforts on our gross and net margins company-wide, while maintaining relatively high growth rates. GrowLife remains dedicated to growth, increasing scale and continued expansion of company operations across all of our market sectors."

Notwithstanding our growth and improving record of quarter over quarter revenue expansion, the industry and GrowLife as an essential B2B (business to business) and B2C (business to end customer) facilitator have significant challenges. Importantly, our industry overall continues to struggles with credit availability and normalized banking. Over time, we expect that for the industry overall and for GrowLife, these matters will stabilize in an acceptable manner to support expansion. In the interim, we regard the credit and normalized banking issues as very substantial competitive business opportunities for GrowLife.

As our Q1 2014 10Q results indicate, GrowLife has continued to incur substantial non-cash charges in Q1 2014; management is dedicated to actively reducing non-cash charges going forward and, as part of our continuing commitment to transparency, management will at the earliest possible time provide details of our strategy to reduce non-cash charge issues in the future. The legislative environment continues to shift favorably for legal cannabis, albeit with some fits and starts affecting banking and credit for the industry and the Company. GrowLife remains well positioned to further increase our market leading presence in a revenue diversified manner that is profitable to the Company and its shareholders.
