IR – Press Release 2018-02-28: Zynex Announces 2017 Fourth Quarter Earnings

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Feb. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Zynex, Inc. (OTCQB: ZYXI), an innovative medical technology company specializing in the manufacture and sale of non-invasive medical devices for pain management, stroke rehabilitation, cardiac monitoring and neurological diagnostics, today reported financial results for its fourth quarter ended December 31, 2017.

President and CEO Commentary:


Thomas Sandgaard, CEO commented: “I am pleased to report net income of $3.3 million in the fourth quarter which continues our trend of bottom line improvement. Our revenue grew to $8.1 million, an increase of 19% compared to the third quarter and 178% above the fourth quarter of last year. Our gross profit margin increased to 81% versus 76% in Q4-2016. I am particularly satisfied with our Adjusted EBITDA for the full year of $9.5 million.”

“We currently estimate our first quarter revenue to range between $6.5 and $7.0 million with Adjusted EBITDA between $2.0 and $2.5 million. First quarter revenue is historically affected by health insurance deductibles not being met in the beginning of the year. The revenue estimate is approximately 89% to 104% above last year’s first quarter revenue of $3.4 million.”

“Our flagship product, the NexWave, is an important technology for physicians to prescribe in today’s opioid crisis, allowing patients with debilitating pain access to prescription strength pain relief without side effects. In many cases, our NexWave device should be prescribed as a first-line-of-defense before prescribing medications such as opioids. I am dedicated to promoting our technology in order to minimize addiction and other side effects from prescription opioids.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Zynex reports its financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. (GAAP). In addition, the Company is providing in this news release financial information in the form of adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and stock compensation). Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors and lenders in evaluating the overall financial health of the Company in that they allow for greater transparency of additional financial data routinely used by management to evaluate performance. Adjusted EBITDA can be useful for investors or lenders as an indicator of earnings available to service debt. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from or as an alternative to the financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.
