WINTER SPRINGS, Fla., Jan. 12, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IRADIMED CORPORATION (Nasdaq:IRMD), the only provider of non-magnetic intravenous (IV) infusion pump systems that are safe for use during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) procedures, today announced its financial guidance for the full year and first quarter 2015.
For the full year 2015, the Company expects to report revenue of $28.0 million to $29.0 million and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.50 to $0.52. For the first quarter of 2015, the Company expects to report revenue of $6.8 million to $7.0 million and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.11 to $0.13, an increase of 57% to 86% over the first quarter 2014 non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.07.
The Company expects to report revenue of approximately $3.5 million for the fourth quarter 2014. The Company's guidance for the fourth quarter was $3.0 million.
The Company's non-GAAP diluted earnings per share guidance excludes stock-based compensation expense, net of tax, which the Company expects to be approximately $1.1 million and $0.3 million for the full year and first quarter 2015, respectively, and which the Company expects will reduce GAAP diluted earnings per share by approximately $0.09 and $0.02 for the respective periods.
Use of non-GAAP Financial Measures
This release contains financial guidance that excludes stock-based compensation expense, net of tax, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. The Company believes that the presentation of financial guidance excluding stock-based compensation, net of tax, provides meaningful information to both management and investors. Because of varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of equity instruments that can impact a company's non-cash expenses, we believe that providing this non-GAAP financial measure allows for meaningful comparisons between our operating results from period to period. We believe that all of our non-GAAP financial measures are important tools for financial and operational decision making and for evaluating our operating results.
