ENGLEWOOD, Colo., April 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Zynex, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZYXI), an innovative medical technology company specializing in the manufacture and sale of non-invasive medical devices for pain management, rehabilitation, and patient monitoring, today announced preliminary results for first quarter 2022, affirming guidance for revenue, EBITDA and order growth.
"We are reporting preliminary and unaudited revenue for the first quarter of $30.5 to $31.5 million and adjusted EBITDA between $3.0 and $4.0 million," said Thomas Sandgaard, CEO of Zynex. "Our Q1 2022 revenue estimate is approximately 26% higher than Q1 2021 and adjusted EBITDA is estimated to increase approximately 900% year over year."
The Company reiterates its full year 2022 guidance of $150 to $170 million in revenue and adjusted EBITDA between $25 and $35 million.
"The pain management division saw Q1 order growth of 3% year over year with 15% fewer sales reps. This relatively modest growth is a direct result of constraints in our ability to recruit new sales reps in the continually tightened labor force. We trimmed our sales force during the second half of 2021 and focused heavily on improving productivity to offset a deceleration in sales rep onboarding. The increased emphasis on sales productivity is evident; March 2022 reflected the highest number of orders in the Company's history. Cash collections remain strong, including collections from commercial health insurance providers, as well as UHC. Knee braces were recently added to the product portfolio and are already adding significant volume to our orders."
The Zynex monitoring solutions division (ZMS) moved into an 84,000 square foot building across from the current company headquarters to accommodate Kestrel Labs' integration, a process completed during Q1. ZMS is incurring rapid hiring of engineering, clinical research, production, and support personnel to enable projected growth. Pipeline products include the non-invasive CM-1600 blood and fluid monitor, the NiCo laser-based co-oximetry, the HemeOx hemoglobin monitor, and a monitoring device to enable early detection of sepsis.
The CM-1600 device is awaiting FDA 510(k) clearance, and Zynex expects to respond to FDA comments throughout Q2 while ramping up manufacturing capabilities of the product. Clinical studies validating the CM1600 are ongoing, with a 200 patient study at Wake Forest University focusing on the detection of post-operative hemorrhagic blood loss having just been conducted. Additional validation studies at Yale Medicine and DeVita Kidney Care were completed with positive results. A peer-reviewed publication from Wake Forest University is in progress and expected to be published in the coming months. Additional studies will begin in the second and third quarters of 2022 and will focus on significant blood/fluid changes and complex clinical scenarios.
"We look forward to leveraging Zynex's continued strength in both divisions and are pleased with performance and inflection through the first quarter," said Sandgaard.
