As part of the Company’s 2022 Analyst & Investor Day, iRhythm will be discussing the following:

2022 Guidance
iRhythm reaffirms its previously provided financial guidance for 2022. iRhythm projects revenue for the full year 2022 to range from $415 million to $420 million, which represents 29% to 30% growth over prior year results. Gross margin for the full year 2022 is expected to range from 68% to 69% and adjusted operating expenses are expected to range between $375 million and $385 million. Adjusted EBITDA for the full year 2022 is expected to range from negative $12.5 million to negative $17.5 million.

2027 Financial Goals and Objectives

  • $1+ billion in revenue, an approximately 20% compound annual growth rate from the mid-point of 2022 annual guidance
  • Gross margin of approximately 73%, an improvement of approximately 450 basis points to the mid-point of 2022 annual guidance
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin of approximately 15%, an improvement of approximately 1,850 basis points to the mid-point of 2022 annual guidance

Key Highlights

  • The Company’s five-year financial plan which aims to deliver ~20% revenue CAGR, driven by the core U.S. and entry into certain international markets, with planned expansion into adjacent markets offering potential upside
    • Significant leverage from gross margin and G&A cost savings anticipated to lead to an adjusted EBITDA margin of 15% in 2027
  • Refreshed Company vision and mission statements to reflect its strategic focus:
    • Vision: Better Data, Better Insights, Better Health for All
    • Mission: Boldly innovating to create trusted solutions that detect, prevent and predict disease
  • Clinical priorities that include continued enhancements to the Company’s core technology, products and services, augmenting clinical evidence, exploring and entering adjacent markets, and leveraging data science and AI

  • International expansion roadmap focused on seven prioritized countries, yielding an anticipated market opportunity of more than $1 billion
  • Introduction of the Know Your Rhythm program, iRhythm’s ground-breaking early detection program for early detection of heart arrythmias. The program enables health plans to offer at-home diagnostic testing for individuals at risk, identifies actionable arrhythmias, and facilitates downstream care management, supported by a telehealth partnership through Heartbeat Health
  • Discussion of the Company’s framework to continue to build products and technology for the future, such as the Zio Monitor, iRhythm’s new biosensor technology platform, and the clinically-integrated ZEUS System for the Zio Watch, while leveraging its AI to drive further differentiation of core technology and products and allow for the exploration of adjacent market opportunities
  • Operational excellence initiatives intended to allow the Company to continue to scale and improve business continuity, enhance patient and provider experience, and lower cost structure, which we anticipate can deliver over $250 million in anticipated annual gross savings by 2027
