SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 01, 2018 (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, 2018.
Second Quarter 2018 Highlights
“Our second quarter results demonstrated continued strong execution on our strategic objectives, with accelerating revenue growth in tandem with gross margin expansion,” said Kevin King, CEO. “Growth in new and existing accounts continued into the quarter, and the exceptional progress we’ve made in salesforce hiring will strengthen our ability to expand the market opportunity we see for Zio XT and Zio AT. Importantly, we saw new accounts piloting our recently launched Zio AT, as well as meaningful increases in Zio XT volumes in large accounts, signaling the potential for XT pull-through we had anticipated. In addition, we were pleased to see the results of two important studies recently published that highlight our opportunity to expand our available market into new indications.”
Second Quarter Financial Results
Revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2018 increased 49% to $35.5 million, from $23.9 million during the same period in 2017 prior to the adoption of ASC 606 and increased 55% from $22.9 million during the same period in 2017 adjusted for the effects of ASC 606 as if adopted in 2017. The increase was primarily due to increased salesforce productivity, expansion into new accounts, improved penetration of existing accounts, and a continued shift to higher priced contracted units.
Gross profit for the second quarter of 2018 was $26.0 million, or 73.2% gross margin, up from $17.1 million, or gross margin of 71.7%, during the same period in 2017 prior to the adoption of ASC 606 and $16.2 million, or gross margin of 70.6%, for the same period of the prior year adjusted for the effects of ASC 606. Margin expansion was driven in part by productivity gains through our proprietary algorithms and workflow enhancements, a continued shift to higher priced contracted units, and improved claims collectability.
Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2018 were $37.7 million, an increase of 64% compared to the same period in 2017 prior to the adoption of ASC 606 and an increase of 68% compared to the same period in 2017 adjusted for ASC 606. The increase in operating expenses was driven by personnel-related costs from our sales team and sales support expansion, increased spend on long-term development efforts, increases in the company’s stock based compensation expenses and costs associated with bad debt expense adjusted for Topic 606.
Net loss for the second quarter of 2018 was $12.2 million, compared to $6.4 million during the same period in 2017 prior to the adoption of ASC 606, and $6.8 million for the same period in 2017 adjusted for ASC 606.
Guidance for Full Year 2018
iRhythm projects revenue for the full year 2018 to range from $138 to $141 million, inclusive of ASC 606, which represents 45% to 48% growth over the company’s prior year, as adjusted and presented on a non-GAAP basis to show the effects of ASC 606. Gross margins for the full year 2018 are expected to range from 73% to 74% and operating expenses for the full year 2018 to be between $143 and $147 million. This compares to previous revenue guidance of $128.5 to $133.5 million, gross margins of 71.5% to 72.5% and operating expenses of $127 and $132 million.

Reconciliation between GAAP and Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The adoption of ASC 606 resulted in a change to net revenue primarily due to timing differences in its recognition of revenue related to non-contracted third-party payor claims as a result of changing from recognition based on the earlier of notification of the payor benefits allowed or when payment is received to the accrual basis based on historical experience.
Based on the Company’s improving collections profile and interpretation of ASC 606 guidance, the collectability rate was deemed “substantially all” and customer credit risk is not deemed a price concession reducing revenue. Customer credit risk is deemed SG&A expense, an impairment loss per ASC 606. The table below presents an updated summary of the cumulative change of ASC 606 and includes the impact to the quarterly results for 2017.
|ASC 606 Impact|
|(Unaudited)||Year ended December 31,||2017|
|Total revenue adjustments||742||2,489||(1,504||)||(1,515||)||(938||)||(387||)||(479||)||(3,319||)||(1,592||)|

In this release, the company refers to non-GAAP 2017 ASC 606 Revenue, non-GAAP 2017 ASC 606 Gross Margin, non-GAAP 2017 ASC 606 Operating Expense and non-GAAP 2017 ASC 606 Net Income. Effective January 1, 2018, the company adopted ASC 606 using the modified retrospective method, which means that the total amount of revenue reported from second quarter 2017 has not been restated in the current financial statements. The company has provided comparable information on revenue, operating expenses and net income in accordance with ASC 606 to allow investors comparability to the prior year results. However, for periods beginning before the adoption date of ASC 606, those adjusted financial measures are considered not to be calculated in accordance with GAAP and are thus presented as non-GAAP financial metrics.
The company believes this additional information is vital during the transition year to allow readers of its financial statements to compare financial results from the preceding financial year given the absence of restatement of the prior period. The company’s non-GAAP financial measures should be considered an addition to, not as a substitute for, nor superior to or in isolation from, measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.
