iRhythm Technologies Announces Second Quarter 2019 Financial Results

Raises Guidance for Full Year 2019

SAN FRANCISCO, July 31, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iRhythm Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: IRTC), a leading digital health care solutions company focused on the advancement of cardiac care, today reported financial results for the three months ending June 30, 2019.

Second Quarter 2019 and Recent Highlights

  • Revenue of $53.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019
    • 50% increase compared to second quarter revenue in 2018
    • 13% sequential growth versus first quarter 2019
  • Gross margin was 76%
    • 280 basis point year-over-year improvement
  • Achieved the majority of target sales force hiring in first half of 2019
  • Zio service CPT code change application accepted by the American Medical Association (AMA)

“Our second quarter results demonstrated continued strong company-wide execution and market penetration, with accelerating revenue growth in tandem with gross margin expansion,” said Kevin King, CEO. “The traction we have seen in both new and existing accounts continued into the quarter, and the exceptional progress we’ve made in salesforce hiring further strengthens our ability to expand the market opportunity we see for our Zio service. Importantly, we saw meaningful growth in Zio XT volumes in large accounts, as well as significant adoption of Zio AT at select customer sites, signaling our comprehensive commercial strategy and expanding service capabilities.

“As anticipated, our CPT code change application was accepted by the AMA for review for Category 1 status in September 2019. We look forward to the meeting as a next step and are excited to highlight the differentiated value of our Zio service as we go through the process,” concluded King. 

Second Quarter Financial Results
Revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2019 increased 50% to $53.3 million, from $35.5 million during the same period in 2018. The increase was primarily due to increased salesforce productivity, expansion into new accounts and improved penetration of existing accounts. Gross profit for the second quarter of 2019 was $40.5 million, or 76% gross margin, up from $26.0 million, or gross margin of 73.2%, during the same period in 2018. Margin expansion was primarily driven by productivity gains through our proprietary algorithms and workflow enhancements.

Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2019 were $51.8 million, compared to $37.7 million for the same period in 2018. The increase in operating expenses was driven by salesforce expansion, organizational support for our network sales strategy, expansion of R&D activities, and ongoing stock compensation expense.

Net loss for the second quarter of 2019 was $11.5 million, or a loss of $0.46 per share, compared with net loss of $12.2 million, or a loss of $0.51 per share, for the same period in 2018.

Updated Guidance for Full Year 2019
iRhythm projects revenue for the full year 2019 in the range of $212 million to $216 million, which represents 44% to 47% growth over the company’s prior year. Gross margins for the full year 2019 are expected to be between 75.5% to 76.5% and operating expenses for the full year 2019 to be between $198 million to $204 million including $29 million to $31 million for research and development and $169 million to $173 million for SG&A. This compares to previous revenue guidance of $206 to $211 million, gross margins of 75% to 76% and operating expenses of $193 to $199 million, which included $165 to $169 million for SG&A. The company expects sales headcount between 130 to 140 for the remainder of the year.
