iRhythm reports 24.3% revenue growth

CEO and President Quentin Blackford said:

Our strong first quarter results are indicative of the momentum we carried into 2022 with an acceleration in daily registrations leading to record quarterly volumes. New account openings were up 15% quarter-over-quarter, and we realized significant growth in our core U.S. market.

The company reported revenue of $92.4 million in Q1 2022, representing a 24.3% YoY increase. Volume growth in Zio XT and AT and increases in Medicare price drove the increase. The company reported a gross profit of $61.8 million in Q1 2022, an increase of 21.4% YoY, while the gross margin was 66.9%, dropping from 68.4% a year ago. The lower gross margin was mainly due to increased costs associated with capacity expansion.

Net loss in Q1 2022 was $50.6 million or $1.71 per share relative to a net loss of $27.8 million or $0.95 per share a year ago.
